Deep Nostalgia: AI brings your old photos to life with breathtaking realism!

Will artificial intelligence dominate us one day? We don’t know, but if the use of AI can sometimes have its ethical limits, there are uses of AI that are quite fun … even if they can surprise or even disturb …

The MyHeritage genealogy website just went live with an application that can make you smile or shudder. It all depends on the photo you choose. By definition, a photographic snapshot is “frozen” and sometimes the only one. Memory that can be held by a missing person. We had seen the Japanese robot encrusting the face of a dead person… With Deep Nostalgia it’s a little different, but above all more accessible!

A small, simple application that lets you animate your photos … On the same principle that ToonMe used to turn your photo into an avatar, DeepNostalgia animate your photo using technology from D-ID, one of this company specialized companies video reconstruction with deep learning …

Very easy to use

Upload your photo, let the artificial intelligence do the job and admire how you move your head a little like the newspapers in the Harry Potter films … Weird maybe, but with a bit of extrapolation, pretty scary anyway! In fact, it obviously works with all photos, so nothing prevents you from returning to your archives or hard drive. To find a snapshot of one of your missing loved ones and bring them to life thanks to artificial intelligence …

We tested the device with one of our photos … And even if the face is a little distorted, the result is pretty good … A photo that moves, a character that comes to life, we’re still very close to Toys Story!
