It’s techno-magical news.
You will not be able to believe what you see online anymore.
On GitHub, Samsung Labs shared a project page called:
MegaPortraits: One-shot Megapixel Neutral Head Avatars.
As you can see in the featured image, these are live portraits with high accurate faces of Goethe, Angeline Jolie, Mona Lisa and Brad Pitt.
It’s a humongous achievement.
It’s neat stuff. The avatars look so realistic and fabulous.
You have to see it for yourself:
Visualize this for a sec…
- In your next Zoom call, you could be… Cookie monster!
- You could be replaced by your avatar who’s showing up with your face on camera.
- We could make the learning experience and history classes awesome! Goethe himself can ask and answer questions!
However, with great power comes great responsibility.
It’s awesome and scary as hell!
