IT'S OVER

Microsoft unveils VASA, an AI that can generate hyper-realistic talking face videos with precise lip-audio sync, lifelike facial behavior, and naturalistic head movements in real-time, from just a single portrait and voice clip.

>We introduce VASA, a framework for generating lifelike talking faces of virtual charactors with appealing visual affective skills (VAS), given a single static image and a speech audio clip. Our premiere model, VASA-1, is capable of not only producing lip movements that are exquisitely synchronized with the audio, but also capturing a large spectrum of facial nuances and natural head motions that contribute to the perception of authenticity and liveliness. The core innovations include a holistic facial dynamics and head movement generation model that works in a face latent space, and the development of such an expressive and disentangled face latent space using videos. Through extensive experiments including evaluation on a set of new metrics, we show that our method significantly outperforms previous methods along various dimensions comprehensively. Our method not only delivers high video quality with realistic facial and head dynamics but also supports the online generation of 512x512 videos at up to 40 FPS with negligible starting latency. It paves the way for real-time engagements with lifelike avatars that emulate human conversational behaviors.

      I wonder if this could be applied to games for things like applying realistic lip-sync to characters from voice-over audio.

      I like how the number of teeth and their location keep changing if you keep looking at them.
      Not to mention that, considering that it tries to mimic standard teeth, if you're a crooked teeth chad, anyone who has ever met you will immediately notice that a video with your face is fake even before they notice the poor coherency.

      Look like as if it's using one of those movement stabilization filters, that locks into a face and makes everything around it blurry. Also looks like shit

      Really it’s a huge relief that this AI craze popped only after boomers retired.
      Now the ones in senior positions are Gen X, who are way more sober than the boomers who caused the dot com bubble.

    you say it is over as if i would ever be a woman to care about my job of "a pretty face that talks" being an artifact of the past. I will never be a woman thus i have none of the female problems.

      btw what jobs will females now take given that they are losing all fronts: a troony takes their beauty pageant awards, an ai takes their girlfriend job, another ai takes their job... i mean we have like 1000 threads about it being over for programmers ( male ) but if i was a woman i would like actually consider the rope.

        If they were gonna do that, all AI research would've been blackbagged in the crib. People know. People are gonna get all media evidence to no longer be evidence unless someone creates some sort of untamperable "this is real" watermark to confirm its really real and t
        crap
        thats how they're gonna do it
        they're just gonna deepfake you and stamp it with the backdoored govt untampered watermark

          this tool is for corpo fricks, not feds. if you thought ads were annoying before, just wait until this shit pops up with realtime AI Black folk talking to you in personalized ads with the AI having access to your personality profile, credit card history, and internet history, all to persuade you to open up your wallet for the latest consumer garbage.
