MyHeritage is a new deepfake software that allows users to animate their old family photos. The new feature – appropriately called 'deep nostalgia' – will allow users to upload photos of someone to see the face animated by the algorithm. Since its launch, users have taken to social media platforms to showcase the appearances of their relatives from lifetimes ago.
“The Live Portrait solution brings still photos to life. The photo is mapped and then animated by a driver video, causing the subject to move its head and facial features, mimicking the motions of the driver video,” D-ID said in a press release. “This technology can be implemented by historical organizations, museums, and educational programs to animate well-known figures.”
