You might be interested in "deep fakes" deep learning video editing software. It uses a library of 1 person's face as training, and overlays that person's face onto a person in a given video, mimicking mouth movement and expressions

@mcpaccard my favorite part of this paper is that the cat generator made this completely horrifying cat meme

@burgin @mcpaccard in the dream you'd see this but you'd be like, of course I can read it. it says 'ass fry'

@morae @mcpaccard clearly it says "hot dog farts" put on your glasses grandma

@mcpaccard "generated" isn't it just slightly mixing up existing photos?

@piggo @mcpaccard I think the video accompanying the paper gives a better overview of what they are doing.

@mcpaccard : Si ça c'est pas un signe qu'on est déjà dans la Matrice :troll:

@mcpaccard
The technology is great, but unfortunately I can only think of bad applications coming out of this.
If anyone has a good idea, I'd be glad to read it ! :)

@Kandy @mcpaccard I imagine it could be useful for aging up missing persons more effectively? Or better photo manipulation of stock images for book covers?

@JamieEllison @mcpaccard
The missing persons search enhancement is a good use case, you're right !

gender identity, photo manipulation Show more

@mcpaccard Not sure this is « the end of photography » come on ;) Photography is much more than a digital portrait, don’t you think?

@imacrea "photography as evidence", you missed a part of the sentence.

@mcpaccard ah right.. sorry. Well « evidence » in photography is already ended since decades, no? Problem is maybe people have not fully processed that yet :/

@mcpaccard Why don't you tell the relevant news? We can have now literally infinite cat pictures!
