Are there any comprehensive collections of AI-generated portraits of human faces (photorealistic, male/female, old/young, different skin colors, various facial expressions) that are free to use?

Analogous to the free Icon Sets (such as fontawesome.com), but more a "faces set". Free to use just as with photos from, say, unsplash.com.

I sometimes have to build mockups of web pages, for demo or development purposes. Often these pages have a portrait photo inside, or an avatar picture.

I wonder if there are collections of AI-generated faces such as this spectacular collection of superhero characters - but these images look unnatural and are certainly not free to use.

For more natural looking faces take a look at thispersondoesnotexist.com , or just perform a web search for "GAN AI faces". Or check out this github repo of GAN code.

    To avoid issues with data protection, personality rights, later complaints of real persons who want their pictures removed.

Note to self: Such faces will be already available on Microsoft's website: Fake It Till You Make It: Face analysis in the wild using synthetic data alone.

Microsoft Researchers intend to release their big dataset:

Our dataset of 100,000 synthetic faces with 2D landmark and per-pixel segmentation labels will be available to download soon, for non-commercial research purposes. Please watch this space.
