There’s a fantastic new website called “This Person Does Not Exist” that displays AI generated faces.
Take a look below.
The person above is not real, and has never been real. They might look like your aunty / uncle / sister / brother / nephew / niece / grandparent / parent / friend but they do not exist except on your screen.
This Person Does Not Exist is a website showcasing fully automated human image synthesis by endlessly generating images that look like facial portraits of human faces using StyleGAN, a novel generative adversarial network (GAN) created by Nvidia researchers.
If you’re still confused, here are some articles about the site;
- This Person Does Not Exist Is the Best One-Off Website of 2019

So I tried to make several different faces appear at once in Data Studio.
I used the URL ( https://thispersondoesnotexist.com/image ) and created an IMAGE Field as shown below.
However, if I used the same URL the same face would appear in all of the cells. So I tried using different URL shorteners.
I used various URL shorteners (Bitly, Tiny.cc etc) to create unique URLs that sometimes create six different faces, but other times show repeats.
Below is the first combinations of faces.
And here’s another combination of faces as they appeared a few days later. The faces automatically generate and sometimes there are repeats.
However, often the six photos display the same face.
I’ve tried to create unique URLs but it doesn’t work 100%. See the Data Studio below.
I use the formula =”https://thispersondoesnotexist.com/image?yesitsmeagain=”&rand()
This creates a unique URL. For example; https://thispersondoesnotexist.com/image?yesitsmeagain=0.665601122751149
