Thanks to the wonders of the internet, computers and the information age, we now know that formerly static images can be interpreted by Artificial Intelligence computer networks to create realistic movement.
Researchers at the Samsung AI Center in Moscow, Russia have quite amazingly turned Mona Lisa and other famous subjects of photos and art into realistic talking heads. This “Few-Shot Adversarial Learning” technology combs through thousands of videos and catalogs visual information. When an image is presented, the matching landmark features are located and put to work. Such examples include The Mona Lisa, Albert Einstein, and Salvador Dali. The results are spooky, to say the least.
