AI reveals what the ‘perfect’ Love Island contestants look like – how do YOU think they compare to past winners?

A MAN used the power of AI to create the “perfect” Love Island contestants – but how do you think they compare to past winners?

With season 10 of the popular reality TV show hitting our screens on Monday, one bloke has used technology to invent the nation’s “type on paper”.

Duncan Thomsen, 53, checked out the winning couples from the previous nine series before creating his digital inventions.

The freelance film editor, from Brighton, used the AI software Midjourney through the Discord app to mash together photos of past winning islanders.

The creations were based solely off of the individual’s appearance as he produced generic representations through artificial intelligence.

But the process wasn’t as simple as it sounds as Duncan revealed that the software required an “absolute description”.

He said: “I’ve taken all the previous winners’ photos and images and merged them together.

“That resulted in a range of different looks, and gave a variety of generic contestants”.

He then went on to add details of nationality and race, and played with the colour, brightness, effect, style and background.

“I had to get the photos looking like they’d come straight out of ITV – like they’d been on the show,” he said.

The man revealed that it took him almost an entire day to create his digital islanders.

The 53-year-old expressed his shock after seeing his work as “another amazing example of what AI is capable of” and said the thought of a virtual Love Island is hilarious.

“[The show] is fake enough on TV so I don’t think that aspect would matter too much!”

The AI whizz even said he could see the possibility of an AI version of the show airing on our screen in the future.

Duncan said: “Soon, I predict an AI version of Love Island will be broadcast on our screens using islanders like the ones I’ve created. 

“People will be voting for a couple that don’t even exist!”.

But before his latest Love island creation, Duncan used AI to imagine what famous historical figures would look like if they could take selfies.

He recreated pictures from the Battle of Waterloo, the court of Cleopatra – and even the Last Supper.

Duncan also made snaps “taken” by Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth I and soldiers at Agincourt.

This comes after researchers prompted AI groups to generate the “perfect” man and woman and to give them the “ideal body type”.

The human clones were created through engagement analytics on social media, using AI tools to decipher billions of images depicting “beautiful people”.

As a result, researchers found the most desirable women had blonde hair, olive skin, brown eyes and slim figures.

The ideal male on the other hand had dark eyes, chiselled cheekbones and defined muscles.
