Make a 3D model of your face just by uploading a photo

Creeptastic! But quick, cool, and impressive: Visit The University of Nottingham’s demo site, and check out the project site for more details. As The Verge writes,

“3D face reconstruction is a fundamental computer vision problem of extraordinary difficulty.” You usually need multiple pictures of the same face from different angles in order to map every contour. But, by feeding a bunch of photographs and corresponding 3D models into a neural network, the researchers were able to teach an AI system how to quickly extrapolate the shape of a face from a single photo.
