Bruce Willis no longer needs to work. An artificial intelligence can play the role of him, and the trend seems to be gaining weight in all areas of the world of cinema, including dubbing. Deepfakes are becoming easier to detect both in videos and in images or synthesized voices, and now we have another field in which they become surprising: calligraphic writing.
That handwriting is not mine (or anyone’s). A web application called Calligrapher.ai allows anyone to type a short sentence, which is then transformed by a neural network into unique calligraphy that looks truly human.
We have superimposed several results on the same image, varying the different parameters offered by this unique tool.
Of downloadable fonts, nothing. There are fonts on the internet and in word processors that try to imitate certain styles of calligraphy. In all of them, in the end, the letters end up being duplicates of each other and it is easy to detect that these texts have not been written by a human, but here things are different, because as you can see in the image, the same letter has different shapes in according to which word
How does it work. The system draws the letters based on a series of statistical weights calculated by a recurrent neural network (RNR) that has been trained with a calligraphy database. The training is focused on English, and there is a significant mess when we try to test with words with accents or with the eñes typical of Spanish.
an old discovery. Actually Calligrapher.ai is not a new development. Its author, Sean Vasquez, is a researcher in the field of machine learning and created this website in 2020 after reading a study by a Deepmind engineer from 2013.
writing robots. It is no longer that artificial intelligence systems can write texts in a surprising way —impossible not to mention ChatGPT—, it is that robots write for us. With the advances made in fields such as those initially mentioned, it does not seem that artificial intelligence has any problems imitating better and better.
