Historic Deefakes: Deep Nostalgia animates family photos and portraits

With deep nostalgia, myheritage uses registered users to convert old photos of their animated images into animated images. For animation, the service uses deefake algorithms, which provide the persons pictured on photos with a head movement, a wink or laughing.

Myheritage is a service that supports users in ancestor research and creating family tree. For example, the website offers dna kits for analysis. Software used for the new service is based on the company d-id specialized in tel aviv and specializing in the development of deidistor software software. Deefack refers to various methods to create videos created by using ki-or machine learning procedures that have been summarized from different content and still look authentic.

Animate photos and busts

Users can upload color or black female photos on the website that an algorithm subsequently analyzes. Detected faces provides the software with an animation. All facial animations are based on small reference videos of myheritage employees, which lend the photos to the photos with their movements to the photos. At the present time, only the faces of individual persons can be animated – one after the other, not at the same time.
