Artificial intelligence has already shown us on numerous occasions how other celebrities would look like (for example, Iron Man or Loki). These types of questions that we all ask ourselves all the time now have an immediate answer thanks to tools such as Stable Diffusion, Midjourney, DALL-E 2 or FaceApp.
Today it’s time to talk about Tom Holland, one of the most popular and beloved actors on the Internet. Although he is now recognized thanks to his role as Spiderman, the truth is that we already knew him at a very young age in J. A. Bayona’s film, The Impossible. The actor has always remained young in the collective imagination, but how would the years suit Tom Holland?
While no one can predict with certainty how Tom Holland will change over time, we can get a rough idea thanks to the use of artificial intelligence. With this technology, we can simulate how celebrities will look as they age.
You’re probably wondering how on earth an AI can guess a person’s future appearance. The truth is, they are the best at it. By analyzing factors such as face shape, wrinkles and expression lines, these algorithms can “predict” what an aging person’s face will look like.
In this case, there’s no need for you to ramble on about what Tom Holland would look like when he’s older. Thanks to the FaceApp application, we have been able to get a rough idea of what he looks like and the result will certainly not leave anyone indifferent. Do you like him better as a young man or in his mature version?
What would be the uses of AI?
In addition to being an interesting curiosity, this technology may also have its practical applications. For example, plastic surgeons could use AI to perform simulations on their patients. It can also be used in audiovisual productions to see how an actor might look in aging roles.
However, this does not escape the ethical dilemmas that have dogged AIs since their emergence into the mainstream. These types of simulations could also be used for more Machiavellian purposes (harassment, intimidation, etc.), not to mention the much-maligned deepfakes. For the moment, one thing is clear: the main thing must always be to avoid their misuse and to protect people’s rights and privacy first and foremost.
