MyHeritage Deep Nostalgia: app and service that animates photos with incredible results!
  • The MyHeritage service started to offer Deep Nostalgia technology
  • It is a powerful AI algorithm capable of bringing old photographs to life
  • The MyHeritage application is free and available on the Play Store and App Store

Deep Nostalgia is the new service that takes advantage of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to animate old (or new) photographs and virtually any format in which it recognizes a human face. The results are intriguing and a little disturbing.

The new function of the MyHeritage platform was widely broadcast on Twitter last weekend with thousands of users exploring its capabilities. Never before have faces from the past starred in videos deep fake, very realistic.

Deep Nostalgia uses AI to animate old photos

By submitting any photo, old or new, to the platform, MyHeritage is able to improve and animate it. It does so using Deep Nostalgia technology which, as far as it is concerned, takes advantage of artificial intelligence algorithms.

The user can use the Android application, for iOS (iPhone), or use the MyHeritage website to do so. Before that you will have to create a user profile, being the service free and being able to create the account through Google or Facebook.

That said, we can then animate any photograph, whether of a human being, or of a statue that contains a faithful representation of the face. The application works its magic, allowing us to choose 10 styles of movement and animation.

Alright, I'm joining the game and animating some ancient stuff. This is from the Acropolis Museum in AthensKinda fun, though it won't work on ancient animals! I'll add more as I get some OK ones

The program's capabilities were quickly channeled into all kinds of experiences and the results are not disappointing. It is possible to animate new, old, badly treated or well maintained photographs with different movements.

There is a somewhat bizarre aura around the results with the echo of the centuries taking on new meaning. See, for example, the thread placed above Twitter in which several works from the Classical period are animated.

From famous statues, to the various busts of Roman emperors, death masks of ancient Egyptian mummies, or frescoes and murals, the results are impressive. This serves to illustrate the limits of artificial intelligence and human artifice.

We can animate up to 5 photos in the free MyHeritage plan

Currently Deep Nostalgia can only animate one face at a time, with the process taking a few seconds, but the results are worth it.

We emphasize that there are 10 types of movements / animations that we can use in our photographs.

Any user can try Deep Nostalgia with up to 5 photos before having to subscribe to one of the paid plans on MyHeritage.
