This algorithm will protect us from the scourge of AI-generated cats

It's okay, we're safe... for meow.

A cat generated by an artificial intelligence from thiscatdoesnotexist. AI. Deepfake. GAN.

Artificial intelligence tends to cross a lot of boundaries.

This cat does not exist is a site that generates on-command images of cat faces conjured entirely by neural networks.
