An AI-based service called “ Deep Nostalgia ” that animates the photos has caught Twitterati’s attention as people are attempting to create the creepiest fake video possible using old images. According to The Verge, the “Deep Nostalgia service”, offered by the online genealogy company “MyHeritage”, uses the AI license from D-ID to create the motion effect of a photo. It’s like iOS Live’s “Photo” feature, which adds a few seconds of video to help smartphone photographers find the best shot.
However, “Deep Nostalgia” can take pictures from any camera and bring them to “life”. The program uses pre-recorded driver videos of facial movements and applies whatever works best for the photo in question. The intended purpose is to allow you to upload photos of deceased loved ones and see them in “action”. The Verge reported that users must sign up for a free account on MyHeritage and then upload a photo. From there the process is automated, following which the site enhance the image before animating it and creating a gif. The site’s FAQ says it does not provide photos to third parties and on its main page a message says “photos uploaded without completing registration are automatically deleted to protect your privacy”.
Deep Nostalgia can only handle single headshots and can only animate faces, so it won’t be able to revive mummies to make them come alive on a photo. A user can upload five photos to the MyHeritage website free of charge for the “Deep Nostalgia” treatment, after which they must register for a paid account. (ANI)
