We use CNNs to build a system that both classifies images of faces based on a variety of different facial attributes and generates new faces given a set of desired facial characteristics. After introducing the problem and providing context in the first section, we discuss recent work related to image generation in Section 2. In Section 3, we describe the methods used to fine-tune our CNN and generate new images using a novel approach inspired by a Gaussian mixture model. In Section 4, we

Finally, in Sections 5, 6 and 7, we explain our experiments and results and conclude in the following section. Our classification system has 82\% test accuracy. Furthermore, our generation pipeline successfully creates well-formed faces.
