What is dead may never die, at least with AI. The painter Salvador Dalí has been recreated on life-size video to interact with visitors to the Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Using archival footage from interviews, GS&P pulled over 6,000 frames and used 1,000 hours of machine learning to train the AI algorithm on Dalí’s face. His facial expressions were then imposed over an actor with Dalí’s body proportions, and quotes from his interviews and letters were synced with a voice actor who could mimic his unique accent, a mix of French, Spanish, and English.
