Android users can now harness the power of neural networks to alter faces


By James Vincent

Last month we told you about FaceApp, an iOS app that uses neural networks to tweak peoples’ facial expressions. Now, it’s available on Android too; you can download it here from the Play Store.

The app is similar in technique to Prisma, which also uses neural networks to change photos; adding artistic filters in the style of famous painters or paintings. But while Prisma produces some pretty fantastic images, the changes it’s making are only superficial — it doesn’t actually alter the content of the photo, like FaceApp.


That’s not to say that FaceApp’s results are always worth it. The app can add smiles, make a face look older or younger, and even swap genders; but its results are definitely hit-and-miss. As you can see above, the images it produces are hazy, low-quality, and sometimes just a little off.

Still, with Prisma, the AI work underpinning the app went from a research paper to turning up in Facebook’s own filters in about a year. Using neural nets to alter images is only going to get more popular.
