Behold this incredibly impressive “Facial reenactment Technology” developed by 5 researchers from 3 different universities and have published their paper at Stanford university website.
While we have already witnessed apps like MSQRD and Faceswap, That work by using facial recognition over the video to transform faces with comical filter effects or Swap faces of 2 individuals, This face2face reenactment technology is quite different from these apps and is more terrifying.
It works by animating the facial expressions of the target video by a source actor and re-render the manipulated output video in a photo-realistic fashion.
The technology aims to make the live face manipulation perfectly accurate as compared to previous reenactment technologies and that too in real-time. It also significantly improves the mouth interior reenactment using training data sets.
The technology is so fast and accurate that, you can hardly distinguish between the real video source and the manipulated or doctored video. Watch this real-time face manipulation demonstration of youtube videos:
