  • Top Github repo trends in 2021
    47 projects | | 12 Jan 2022
    AI/ML is awesome and will bring a ton of good to the world, but there are also serious risks and safety considerations. Enhanced surveillance and State control is certainly one of them, and perhaps one of the ripest use cases for abuse is around facial recognition. One of the top trending repos in 2021 was Tencent’s GFPGAN, which ‘aims at developing Practical Algorithms for Real-world Face Restoration’. Another trending library was DeepFaceLab, for creating deep fakes. Note, famously in 2020, Huawei published about testing software for facial recognition of Uighurs. Earlier that year, IBM announced it would no longer develop facial recognition software. I come from a country where state surveillance is fairly normalized, albeit discreet. I’m talking journalists have their homes broken into, their messenger texts intercepted, and the secret police taps your cell phone type surveillance. So when our government bought 1000+ Huawei smart cameras a couple years back with facial recognition embedded, human rights activist were not thrilled.

    I doubt Ryan is smart enough to use this, but there's a free open source project here:

    Deep Face Lab, self-explanatory. I followed this youtube tutorial. It is surprisingly easy to do, probably the easiest part of the whole thing. It's not good for close-up shots or if the subject is yelling. If I wasn't at work, I'd show you its horrible attempt at making BB yell "TO WAR!". Still kinda scary to see this tech in action and thinking about how far it'll advance.

  • Are there any open source ML libraries that have good (or any) test coverage?
    1 project | | 25 Nov 2021
    I have been looking to use lipsync for a project at work, and I have been horrified to see that the most used deepfake library [0] with over 30k stars has the word "test" mentioned in it a whopping 10 times. This naturally made me very hesitant to use this library as who (I guess no one, really) knows how unstable it may be.

    Are there any examples of projects in ML (other than libs like pytorch) that do have test suites, and perhaps even enforce TDD? Would be very curious to know.

    It’s called a deepfake and there are a few programs out there, here’s one

    You can try: 1. DeepFaceLab (, but it will take effort from you and good hardware. 2. Telegram bot for one shot face swap ( Saves a lot time and easy to use but not perfect in quality.

faceswap - Deepfakes Software For All

DeepFaceLive - Real-time face swap for PC streaming or video calls


avatarify - Avatars for Zoom, Skype and other video-conferencing apps.

mediapipe - Cross-platform, customizable ML solutions for live and streaming media.

yanderifier - First-Order-Wrapper (formerly known as Yanderify) is a front-end tool for first-order-motion. It aims to make using first-order-motion face animation accessible to everyone, for education and entertainment.

PaddleGAN - PaddlePaddle GAN library, including lots of interesting applications like First-Order motion transfer, Wav2Lip, picture repair, image editing, photo2cartoon, image style transfer, GPEN, and so on.

awesome-pretrained-stylegan2 - A collection of pre-trained StyleGAN 2 models to download

stylegan2-ada - StyleGAN2 with adaptive discriminator augmentation (ADA) - Official TensorFlow implementation

figaro - Real-time voice-changer for voice-chat, etc. Will support many different voice-filters and features in the future. 🎵
