Description
This article looks at the recent trend and release from Snapchat, Cartoon 3D Style Lens. This filter uses AR to make users look like a background character from the Disney film“Frozen”, and it has a record-high number of downloads. The article then moves on to compare this feature with the functionalities of other yet similar platforms, such as FaceApp and Voilà. In this, the writer also provides some insight into the integral AI racism and Eurocentrism that is reflected in these platforms.
