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
@nbneer technically impressive, but sooooo creepy...

@Kandy @mcpaccard also I can imagine a trans person being able to "see" themselves as their gender could be a viable option if this software becomes widely available and easy to use? I'm not integrated into the community so I don't know if that's a thing people want. But I imagine it would be possible to pair photos of parents and individuals? I apologize if this is problematic -- not my area of expertise.
@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 :/
the end of stock photography
