New AI Makes Eerily Realistic Movies Out of Old Photos

One can only imagine the kind of impact that photography had on the world when it was first invented. It might seem commonplace for now, by photography was quite remarkable when it started becoming prominent because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing people to capture realistic depictions of various objects including the human face. This was not something that was possible before this invention, and AI is taking things to a whole other level in the modern day.

The concept of turning old photos into animations is not all that new, with MyHeritage releasing Deep Nostalgia last year which was capable of doing something like this. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that this company has just released a brand new kind of AI, AKA, LiveStory that is even more accurate and realistic and what’s more is that it can turn your old family photos into documentaries or biopics about the people that are depicted in them!


The animation of the images is more or less the same if a bit more refined, but the truly unique thing is the fact that it adds an audio narration. You can choose to use an audio narration that the company already has in its library or you could type your own narration out which will be read out through a text to speech translator with all things having been considered and taken into account.

The program can be used in 31 different languages and that means that it has a distinctly global appeal. The main advantage of photos is that allowed people to create historical records and remember their ancient family members in ways that was just not all that widespread in the past. This new AI doubles down on this notion, and it may very well be a new revolution in the same vein. It will be interesting to see how people end up using it and the various benefits that they manage to derive from it in the near future.
