Deep Nostalgia animates still portraits using AI

A new AI-driven service called Deep Nostalgia from online genealogy company MyHeritage and using technology licensed from Israeli firm D-ID can animates portrait photos to create passable but fairly creepy fake video clips. It uses pre-recorded driver videos of facial movements and applies the one that best suits the image being manipulated. Users upload a still from where an automated process animates it and produces a GIF. It can only do this for single head and shoulders images and can only animate faces. If you give it a go and like the results, send them over and we’ll create a gallery.
