AI DeepFake

Development of Holographic AI DeepFake System.

 

   Based on the current software development and image processing as well as image recognition technology of WiMi, which will launch such service in 2019 as video face replacement. Based on the machine learning of artificial intelligence, the face that is showed in the video can be changed with any face.

 

The same girl can achieve different holographic facial changes:

undefined

 

   This technique is implemented on the basis of python, the face of B is extracted by the Scr (substitute) video, a face of A is extracted by the DST (the replaced) video, a model of the B-face transformed into A is established by the GAN training. In this process, the per frame of DST video is transformed, and the face of each frame is replaced, then a new video is able to be output on the basis of the synthesized video added with original audio.

 

Advantages of WiMi

   The requirements for raw material are no longer harsh: Even there is no video, the face replacement is still can be done only with some photos;

 

   Automatic matting: It is capable of recognizing the face from each frame of the picture with generating the blank background, and face in the transparent layer can be animated.

 

   When the angle of the face is different, it can also easily complete the holographic face replacing function (for example, give the computer a photo of side face, it can automatically generate the photo of front face).

 

   The application of the latest face feature detection package: Recently, more than 400 feature of face grid model have been released . According to different face types, a variety of models can be selected, and more detailed parameters can be adjusted, such as image emergence, erosion parameters and so on.

 

   The expression is vivid and unartificial: Facial expressions that most of existing systems have generated are rigid, often like a face that has been affixed and can't blink, while the videos that WiMi generated have more details.

 

   A cloud platform for holographic face replacement projects will be established by WiMi to provide cloud service tools for the video holographic face replacement: Users only need to upload videos or pictures that need holographic face replacement on WiMi platform, then WiMi will use cloud server to transform them, and then users can pay corresponding fees according to the price of the model. Users need not pay a high price to buy graphics card to complete video conversion, and they can also share and communicate the videos in the community built by WiMi.

 

Business Model of WiMi

 

Construction of Cloud Platform

 

   A cloud platform for holographic face replacement projects will be established to provide cloud service tools for the video holographic face replacement: Users only need to upload videos or pictures that need holographic face replacement on WiMi platform, then WiMi will use cloud server to transform them, and then users can pay corresponding fees according to the price of the model. Users need not pay a high price to buy graphics card to complete video conversion, and they can also share and communicate the videos in the community built by WiMi.

 

Establishment of cooperation in technical services

 

   Work with hardware manufacturers and APP technical services: It targets for the business market, such as short video APPs and social APPs, to increase the interest of the APP for the purpose of improving activity and adhesion through video holographic face replacement technical services.

 

   WiMi is already in contact with some branded mobile terminal departments to get the opportunity of built-in WiMi technology to the latest 5G phone. 5G bandwidth guarantees to try real-time transmission of the video holographic face replacement, and some of the latest phones with built-in artificial intelligence chips are capable of fully making all the computing power to be applied. In the process of independent research and development, WiMi makes use of video holographic DeepFake technology to establish technical service relationship with other APPs. When users upload their videos, they can choose to process video with WiMi technology and replace any face in the video, which is conducive to increase  user activity of the APP..

 

Video Content Production

 

   At present, the application of WiMi technology in film and television are as follows: WiMi works with film and television companies in such aspects, that is, some unknown actors are invited to make movies and then replace their faces with the faces of super actors. In addition, it is also can be used to make videos or news shows filmed by ordinary people. With the popularity of technology, film and television companies can change actors according to the needs of the target market, and the producer can let the audience choose the actors before shooting. What's more, it also can work with actors who are in urgent need of a comeback, or who haven't been active in the work for a long time, it is conducive to help them push their classic works back to the vision of the public.

 

   At present, WiMi is in contact with well-known domestic film companies to provide them with technical services for the production of low-cost (5 million) holographic DeepFake videos of movies and TV dramas.

 

Social App

 

   The pictures transformed by holographic DeepFake technology or punch picture APPs often blow up the circle of friends, such as military uniform photo H5 released in  People's Daily, which has 2 billion visits in 2 days. In a total of 7 days, it obtained a total of 1 billion PV. It can be seen that the video holographic DeepFake social relations in the future is more socialized. It is expected to lead the trend of the next DeepFake.

 

 

Celebrity Face Permission

 

   As for this technology, advertisers only have to pay a sum of monery to the artist as the license fee. They can make use some of the artist's big head photos, and simply clicking on a button, the artist can show off their clothes for a month in a row. This can not only create a new source of income for artists, online celebrities and anyone who has influence on social networks, but also provide a new way for businesses to promote brands. WiMi only needs to provide businesses with such a tool to make a profit.

 

Direction of the Holographic Video holographic DeepFake Service:

 

   Charges for Video Holographic DeepFake Service: It targets to the customer market, and charges for video holographic DeepFake service provided for individuals on cloud platform or App;

 

   Social APP collaboration: It targets for the business market, similar to the Wuta Camera, to increase the interest of the APP, sucha as short video APPs and social APPs, for the purpose of improving activity and adhesion through video holographic face replacement technical services.

 

   Self-operated short video account: It is capable of setting up one's own social platform account of short video. Through the analysis of current hot spots, it is able to run a number of short video accounts related to star holographic DeepFake in such platforms as the routine video and short video. It is conducive to accumulate fans for the publicity of film and TV series in advance, and in the mean time, to sell star related products or enhance the sales of ecommerce goods.

 

   Customized service for Advertising: It can provide commercial video holographic DeepFake service for advertising companies of public relations, and also provide the personalized advertising and video holographic DeepFake service for crisis handling of public relations.

 

   After the interviews with seed users, WiMi identified the first batch of users in four categories, including the content contributor and the content consumer, which were identified by WiMi as two major user groups:

 

   Fan users: These kinds of users refer to those group who are longing for interesting contents, and want to see the holographic DeepFake pictures they like or hate, or just want to be personally involved in replacing their face to various stars or network celebrities. It includes primary and secondary school students, college students, who have plenty of time and have a greater demand for entertainment. Among them, most of the women just go for the entertainment purpose of chasing stars, and  a small group of men will prefer to satisfy their fantasies about their dreaming beauty. There are both content contributors and content consumers.

 

   Multimedia network celebrity: Those who are not satisfied with their appearance, but eager to push themselves into a network celebrity as a member of multimedia personnel, are having great interests in video holographic DeepFake service. Although this group is very small, it still can build their own "virtual star" through this small group.

 

   Industry practitioners: It includes film and television practitioners, film and television production companies. They have a great demand for holographic DeepFake technology, which avoids the time and labor cost of one frame video holographic DeepFake in the past. Producers have revealed that before the launch of big IP, they are willing to find small actors at low cost for a trial performance, and then replace the face of super actors to form demos, which will greatly improve the professionality of character selection.

 

   Small and medium-sized enterprises: they are eager to promote their products at a small cost, or to add interest to the annual meeting, and often have a great demand for video holographic DeepFake service. In advertising delivery, it is good for consumers to treat different groups with different "spokesmen", so as to reduce costs and accurately put them into the target population.
