It seems that most of these internet ‘challenges’ amount to little more than an excuse for people to share yet another photo of themselves. The latest is the ‘age challenge,’ in which people are encouraged to use the Faceapp old age filter on a selfie and share it with the world.
Dubai: Unless you have been living under a rock in the social media world over the past week, you will have seen your friends posting wrinkly old photos of themselves or of celebrities with the hashtag #FaceApp.
The app has gone viral in the region and across the globe this week; all thanks to a simple face mapping AI trick. Celebrities and regular folks alike have been sharing on Instagram and Twitter images of what their faces would look like in 60 years; and let’s be honest, the ‘old’ selfies look extremely realistic.
What is it?
FaceApp is a mobile application designed to create realistic transformations of faces using various filters and features, the first version of which was released in 2017. The free version offers a limited choice of filters including the one that is going viral right now.
The feature that has tweeps going crazy for the app is the ‘old’ option where the app gives you three versions of your face – two young and one that looks really old and spookily probable.
We’ve already featured the baby filter and gender-swap ‘viral sensations,’ where people played around with themselves and celebrities too, so now, obviously, it’s the turn of the oldies. Faceapp uses neural networks to modify a face on any photo while keeping it photorealistic, in this case adding the signs of aging including wrinkles, grey hair and sagging skin. How well it works remains to be seen, I guess we’ll find out in the future!
