Thanks to Artificial Intelligence powered MyHeritage’s Deep Nostalgia tool, people across the world are awe-struck seeing coming old pictures coming to life.
The AI-powered results can be arresting. Seeing a loved one’s face speaking looking at you once more, smiling and emoting, is an emotional experience. So is seeing a long-lost ancestor you didn’t even know you were related to.
The short video clips are also great business for MyHeritage. Users have shared their Deep Nostalgia results left and right across social channels.
