[P] Using deepfake to bring Salvador Dali back to life
I’ve been working on a project for the past year using deepfake faceswap to bring Salvador Dali “back to life” on some interactive screens at the Dali Museum.
This is done with a mix of faceswap results from both the dfaker and faceswap repos on GitHub. Results are further refined in After Effects. Our archival source footage of Dali used to train the network is 60 years old and shot in black and white, so in addition to the faceswap, we’re colorizing the results.
We tried using ML to recreate Dali’s voice as well, but the results just aren’t good enough yet. Someday soon, hopefully!
