Revealed: What the average people in 13 UK counties look like according to AI – so do YOU ​​agree?

There are 92 counties in the UK, each with its own distinctive look and feel.

Now a film editor has hired artificial intelligence (AI) to put faces into these counties — with hilarious results.

Duncan Thomsen, 53, used Midjourney software to create images of “average people” in 13 counties.

The results suggest that the average County Antrim resident is young with red hair, while those in Anglesey are older (and wrapped up for the cold weather!).

So do you agree with how the AI ​​thinks the average people in your county look like?

“All counties have personality,” explained Mr. Thomsen.

“They are their likes and quirks.” I wanted to see if I could turn that personality into people and reflect them in photography.”

Mr Thomsen from Brighton used the Midjourney software through the Discord application.

He typed in specific phrases to get the results.

For example, for Tyne and Wear, he typed, “Tyne and Wear as a portrait distinguished by their clothes, haircuts, and personalities.”

He also added: “Social, outgoing and proud of local roots, interested in music, art and football, fast people never turn down a night out with friends.”

The images generated by the AI ​​show the Londoners as trendy and cool, while the people of Somerset appear rather bohemian.

And those from Oxfordshire are portrayed as young and urban compared to those from Norfolk who are portrayed as older and rural.

Mr Thomsen said: “Somerset is fun because I like the color and the beard of the man – it made me laugh.”

“I also liked the Scots and the Welsh because they have a lot of character.”

Mr. Thomsen added that the possibilities of AI are endless.

And he assumes that the software will be used more and more in everyday life over time.

He said: “I’ve developed a sense of image through my job and have been fortunate to have worked with some really great people.”

“It’s allowed me to cross-reference everything I’ve been working on and allowed my imagination to run wild, and this is the result.”

While the bot insisted that it didn’t condone stereotypes, when asked, it offered a list of stereotypes associated with each location.

By and large, UK residents have been accused of having bad teeth, being overly polite and obsessed with the royal family.

Citizens were also accused of eating an unhealthy mix of “fried foods and heavy meals” while having a very “stiff upper lip”.
