An app to animate old photographic portraits
Genealogy site MyHeritage unveiled a new tool that uses Artificial Intelligence to turn photo portraits into disturbing animated videos.
The technology behind DeepNostalgia was created by the Israeli company D-ID.
This software uses several drivers to animate faces. Each driver consists of a fixed sequence of movements and gestures. Deep Nostalgia then accurately applies the drivers to the face, creating a short video that you can share with friends or family. Through this software, it is possible to bring old photographs to life using artificial intelligence.
DeepNostalgia software does not generate audio to prevent users from creating deepfake videos. However, the same company has produced a video with Abraham Lincoln to demonstrate the potential of the software.
We tried to animate some old Chinese politicians and people: Mao Zedong, Sun Yat-Sen, Chiang-kai Shek, Dowager Cixi, Zhou Enlai, Deng Xiaoping, Pu Yi, Yuan Shikai, and two Taiwanese aborigines.
