VIDEO: Czech Designers Develop Incredible Facial Animation Technology

A groundbreaking real-time, image-processing algorithm that uses Artificial Intelligence to turn your face into an animated, talking work of art—from a bronze statue to a color-saturated painting—was recently released by a team of Czech researchers.

Professor Daniel Sýkora in the Department of Computer Graphics and Interaction at Czech Technical University (ČVUT) posted this demo video of the patent-pending project (Example-Based Synthesis of Stylized Facial Animations) on his YouTube channel last week.



While the technology is not yet available in an Instragram- or Snapchat-style app, the findings from the team’s research paper will reportedly be published later this year.

Which means it’s only a matter of time before you can Mona Lisa yourself.
