Creepy Real-Time Face Capture and Reenactment

Researchers have developed mindblowing new video technology that allows a person to transfer their facial expressions on to another person in real-time – and it’s already being tested on George W Bush, Donald Trump, Barack Obama, and Vladimir Putin.

The development, which is as equally impressive as it is disturbing, is the result of a collaboration between researchers from Germany’s University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, the Max-Planck Institute for Informatics, and Stanford University in California.

The study, Face2Face: Real-time Face Capture and Reenactment of RGB Videos, animates the facial expressions of the target video by a source actor and re-renders the manipulated output video in a photo-realistic fashion, according to the researchers.

The project works with a webcam and manipulates videos in real-time. The research team have showcased the technology in a video in which they choose some of the people one may most want to manipulate, if they had the chance.

The technology tracks the facial expressions of both source and target video and addresses details such as teeth by finding the mouth interior that best matches the re-targeted expression and warping it to produce the right fit.

Reenactment is achieved by “fast and efficient deformation transfer” between source and target and the process is completed as the synthesized target’s face is re-rendered on top of the corresponding video footage.

Concerns have been raised, however, about how the technology could be applied – and if we will be able to trust what we see.

    Like 10 years ago a news about this system, that was been under development by NASA leak. At that phase they could anybody say anything with the correct facial expression. At the same time other news leaked, that was a chip installed on brain that allow “mental conversation” to happen with those that had the chip.

    So, Putin for example is made to say ” we must kill all Americans and blow their country up with nukes”
    And who is going to believe it?
    Least of all Putin !

    I can see this being a toy, but in reality, any person in power or the media being manipulated by this, will have a real copy .. And I think they would show that ..

    Of course, there will be some wacko survilist in the states that while reading his bible, will belive that Putin said it,

    This could have tremendous implications both positive and negative. Gone would be the days of video proof, but on the bright side we could have a return of some classic actors who are deceased.

    This technology was only created to be abused. No good can come of it.
