When a person dies, the only thing we dream of is seeing his smile and his gestures again, even if only once more. MyHeritage thought of all those people who lost a loved one and created a app powered by artificial intelligence that allows you to create beautiful memories.
Deep Nostalgia gives still face photographs a small animation using previously recorded facial movement videos. You just have to choose the one that best suits the image you want to animate and then apply the changes.
Deep nostalgia is making us cry
These days everyone has shared their tests with the app #DeepNostalgia, which allows you to bring old photos to life to ‘revive’ family members or historical figures.
This technology is amazing, but there is also data to be concerned👇🏽 pic.twitter.com/KvFONgbvz4

The app it was created by MyHeritage, a platform that is responsible for developing websites, mobile, software, products and services in which users can do from a family tree to create and share photographs with movements.
Videos are already getting popular

MyHeritage’s various controllers allow access to video leads that have different sequences of facial gestures, with which images can simulate a blink or a smile.
Once you animate the video, you can export it to publish it on your social networks or simply share it with your family members.
They want nostalgia to invade us
Still excited by the opportunity that Artificial Intelligence has given me to see the photo of my beautiful mother, who died when I was just 2 years old, come to life. Rest in peace mom. Thanks #DeepNostalgia of MyHeritageES 😍🙌🏻 pic.twitter.com/kZJIAGg32s

One of the main reasons why the app is to give users the opportunity to remember their deceased relatives in a different way. Your goal is to “revive” for a few seconds.
Some use the app to laugh
So I wanted to know how the recent #DeepLearning facial animations services do with busts and decided to give that botched Christiano Ronaldo statue a spin. What ensued can only be summarised as #DeepNostalgia –> #DeeplyDisturbed. Sweet dreams! 😉 pic.twitter.com/g2J0LV5DAi

Obviously, it didn’t take long for netizens to realize that they could use the app for something funnier. So they took the funniest and weirdest photos of celebrities to give them movement and the result was very comical.
Others use it to bring back historical figures

There are also users who preferred to simulate what the most important characters in history would look like, such as the Mona Lisa, Nefertiti and even Charles Darwin.
A trip to the past
My Heritage is using AI to re-animate still photos – in some cases giving some folks a video a look they’ve never seen – great grandparents, or deceased family. My now-passed mother in law in her teens is adorable. #DeepNostalgia pic.twitter.com/4g1KZPysKw

Seeing our loved ones once again smiling or moving is amazing, as it reminds us of small details about that person. In addition, it makes us travel to the past and relive a special moment. You have to try!
