The Uncanny Valley
The uncanny valley has become easier to avoid as better computer technology in mapping and generating proper faces have become more and more advanced. In recent video games, the characters' faces showed emotions that, when coupled with the realistic settings and environments, seem genuine. It gets harder for us to recognize something that may not be real when computer programs are being made to create realistic-looking faces. I found this website after watching a video and it is an artificial intelligence program that compiles a face together from different photos, within its database, to create a face that does not exist.
