wow… a key technology for the metaverse is already here. “you will not be able to figure what is true and what is false”.
In the DLD conference .. I have seen the future. Image Metrics — a company in Manchester, United Kingdom — following 10 years of reserach — can capture facial expression and plug them into other images. The demo is very convincing… (one tiny problem: transforming video to the new image does take “over night.” Still not on-the-fly… new chips will do that… amazing.)
See the presentaion from the conference here… full video — look for the Monday 9:00 Andy Wood presentation.
