• Mona Lisa frown: Machine learning brings old paintings and photos to life

    3 monthes ago - By Tech Crunch

    Machine learning researchers have produced a system that can recreate lifelike motion from just a single frame of a person's face, opening up the possibility of animating not just photos but also of paintings. It's not perfect, but when it works, it is - like much AI work these days - eerie and fascinating.
    The model is documented in a paper published by Samsung AI Center, which you can read it here on Arxiv. It's a new method of applying facial landmarks on a source face - any talking head will do - to the facial data of a target face, making the target face do what the source face...
