The technology that animates faces in photos works like magic. How does it work?
The remarkable technology for animating photos has been licensed to MyHeritage from D-ID, a company that specializes in reenacting video using deep learning. MyHeritage incorporated this technology to animate the faces in historical photos and create high quality, realistic video footage. The Deep Nostalgia ™ feature uses several drivers made by MyHeritage. Each driver is a video that consists of a fixed sequence of movements and gestures. Deep Nostalgia ™ can apply these drivers very precisely to a face in your photo and create a short video that you can share with your friends and family. The driver controls the movements in the animation so you can see your ancestors smile, wink, and turn your head.
In 2018, MyHeritage reported that over 92 million user accounts were exposed in a data breach. Both email addresses and passwords were pilfered during the major security event. MyHeritage’s main business is collecting DNA and providing ancestry services, which triggered major concerns over the company’s overall security.
At the time, MyHeritage staged that “sensitive data” like family trees and DNA information had been stored in a separate location. Thus, hackers had been unable to gain access.
