Bringing Portraits to Life
Your Facebook profile pic will soon wink
Researchers at the University of Tel Aviv developed a technique to animate a portrait from a single photo as input. The research team is collaborating with Facebook to make profile pictures reactive. For example, your profile picture could smile or wink when somebody like one of your posts. The team thinks that the technique will be soon undetectable.

This innovation allows to animate the inanimate and to make our photos express feelings, with or without our consent! The machine reacts in our place and eventually Facebook could decide for us that such or such action make us feel happy, sad, surprised or angry.
The score is 3
