Artificial intelligence brings Roman emperors back to life

Virtual reality designer Daniel Fochart brought the Roman Emperor to life, using AI and Photoshop to colorize the Roman Emperor.

Machine learning is a unique tool for recovering old photos and videos. Its job is so great that it can even revive ancient statues and turn a statue of a long-dead Roman emperor into a real face. You can imagine yourself on the street. To go for a walk.

Fauchardt completed his first picture of 54 Emperors in July, but this week he posted updated photos and new posters for sale.

Fochart said he initially produced 300 posters, hoping to sell them within a year but in three weeks.

Since then, his work has spread widely, and the designer said: I know the history of Rome is interesting and attracts a lot of viewers, but what still surprises me is its speed.

Fouchart uses a variety of different programs and resources to recolor pictures and statues. The main tool is a program called ArtBreeder, which uses a machine learning method called (GAN) to process portraits and landscapes.

If you browse the ArtBreeder website, you will see a number of faces with different styles. Each face can be changed with buttons like the screen to find video game characters.

Fouchart fed the Emperor's portrait that ArtBreeder had collected from statues, coins, and paintings, then manually processed the image based on historical descriptions and returned it to the GAN.

He said, "I'll use Photoshop, I'll upload the image to (ArtBreeder), edit it, reformat it into Photoshop, and reformat it." This results in the most convincing and best quality image.

Each photo takes a day to design, and the designer said he sometimes puts HD photos of celebrities in (Jean) to improve the sense of reality.

Fossart said: Before the project began, he was not interested in the history of Rome but changed his mind after looking at the lives of emperors to display their portraits.

His work earned him academic praise because it provided him with new depth and realism. Walker said he spoke to a group of history professors and graduate students who provided him with specific personal advice.

"Choosing skin color is one of the areas in which there are many differences, especially with emperors like (Septimus Severus) who are said to have Phoenician ancestors or indigenous peoples in North Africa."
