How FaceApp works?
- In layman terms when you click a selfie or choose it from gallery Faceapp upload that photo in it's server and uses the Facial algorithm to process the filters you select.
- The app is being trained with millions of photos of old age people.It uses server side technology to function. In more technical terms it does nueral tranformation in your face ie. smile/not smile, male/female, young/old etc.
- In Machine Learning terms it uses deep learning to give highly accurate results.In one of the article it was mentioned that FaceApp uses "deep generative convolutional neural networks".
- It's hard to predict the exact algorithm/technique as the plus point the makers have is they got millions of face data when the app went viral(back in 2017) and eventually they trained the algorithm with these data to give more precise results about you being old.
It's AI that gives you those wrinkles with a pinch of filter!!
