AI can be used to transform still images into moving and talking heads, according to a paper published by Samsung AI Centre in Russian Federation.

It's incredible to see their technology at work.

The technique is known as puppeteering.

Need more convincing that it will soon be impossible to tell whether a video of a person is real or fake?

The researchers note that just using one picture makes the software less effective, you can see the animated versions all have distinct "personalities" they're deriving from the people they're being modelled onto.

Salman Khan says he wants kids but not their mother
But Salman didn't stop here as he said that since Priyanka loved the script so much, she can at least promote the film. Talking about her character, Katrina said, "I think Kumud is the best character I've had the chance to play".

Researchers at the Samsung AI center in Moscow have achieved this, Motherboard reported Thursday, by training a "deep convolutional network" on a large number of videos showing talking heads, allowing it to identify certain facial features, and then using that knowledge to animate an image. Using only a single image of a person's face, a video can be generated to show the face moving and speaking.

Sure, the results aren't ideal, but it's a start, and it's an absolutely fascinating one.

The scientists hope such an approach is able to learn highly realistic and personalised talking head models of new people and even portrait paintings.

However, the technology can not move any part of the Mona Lisa'a upper torso.
