Artificial Billionaire Club

About this Project

The Artificial Billionaire Club is a visual research into who’s listed on the Forbes list. A styleGAN network is fed by 2000+ portraits of billionaires listed on the Forbes list. From these portraits a trained model is created. The resulting model is capable of generating new portraits based on the images it’s being fed. This results in a computer generated visual representation of what these billionaires look like. Institutional discrimination is a very big problem we are dealing with. Artificial intelligence will only learn from what it’s being fed (which has already caused multiple cases of discrimination), and it shows in this visual research. The artificial billionaires club consists 80% out of white males. Feel free to browse through the portraits on the left.
