We’ve used DALL-E text-to-image AI to generate portraits, based on names shared by a large number of people.

We believe this project can illustrate the complexity of personal names interpretation, at the crossroads of ethnography, sociology, sociolinguistics, geography, history and, more recently machine learning.
Burkina Faso is a multi-cultural and diverse country with a rich history.
