This is what the “average” person from a selection of UK counties looks like - according to artificial intelligence (AI).

Generated images show Londoners as trendy and cool - while Somerset folk look more bohemian.

Those from Oxfordshire are portrayed as young and urbane whereas Norfolk residents have a more rural look.

The images were made by Duncan Thomsen, a film editor from Brighton.

The 53-year-old said: "All counties have personality.

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

AI responds to prompts and commands set by the user and creates pictures by referencing billions of images online.

Duncan used the software Midjourney, through the application Discord.

He typed in certain phrases to achieve the results.

For example, for Tyne and Wear Duncan typed in “Tyne and Wear as a portrait characterised by their clothes, haircuts and personalities”.

And he added “social, outgoing and proud of local roots, interests music, art and football, quicks never turn down a night out with friends”.

Duncan said: "Somerset is fun because I like the colour and the beard on the man - it made me laugh.

"I also liked the Scottish and the Welsh, because they are very characterful."

Duncan added that the opportunities with AI are endless.

And he believes the software will be used more and more in everyday life as time goes on.

He said: "I got an eye for image through my day job and have been fortunate to have worked with some really great people.

"It's allowed me to cross-reference everything I've worked on and explore my imagination without limits, and this is the result."

Duncan has been playing around with the software in lots of different ways.

He has previously created what Glastonbury headliners would look like if they had “normal” jobs, which created some hilarious portraits of Arctic Monkeys’s Alex Turner as a Milkman.

Duncan also had a go at making the “perfect” Love Island contestants by merging winners from the show in previous years.
