I know you like neural networks, so today I bring you to have fun with Vid2vid . Developed by Nvidia researchers, this neural model of video synthesis is capable of reproducing a “talking head” from a simple photo. Very practical for visios where a simple profile photo could become much more lively.

To illustrate their techno, the researchers have put a demo online that allows you to change the angle of rotation of the head, but also the position of the eyes, from a photo. You upload the image, you frame the head, you play with the sliders and then you click on the “Rotate” button and you will get a really stunning new image.

Even if we only touch the adjustment of the position of the eyes, we can have a funny thing.

To see now what it will give when it is implemented in a software that will make video and that we can test. In the meantime, here’s what it looks like and everything we can do with it:
