How AI was used to “revive” celebrities.

Yesitas used software of image editing and artificial intelligence to bring some musicians and actors to life and even remove Madonna’s cosmetic enhancements. The tool used by the photographer uses an artificial intelligence algorithm called a generative adversarial network (GAN).

This technique consists of two parts. The first one creates an aged version of the face and you can select a specific age. The program then compares the AI-generated image with the actual image of the selected age so that the result is credible.

“The development of AI technology really excited me and made me think that anything imaginable can be shown in reality. When I started playing with technology, I saw what it could do and thought about what would make me the happiest. I wanted to see some of the people I missed again and that’s how the project came about,” he explains. Yesiltas on your Instagram account.
