  • Samsung’s new AI can create talking avatars with a single

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.

Search warrants tied to former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen released
Cohen has said he arranged payments to McDougal and Daniels at Trump's behest, which the president has denied along with the affairs.

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.
