The use of artificial intelligence to age famous actors is a growing trend in Hollywood. Harrison Ford and Tom Hanks are two actors who have undergone the procedure to appear younger. The technology, developed by the AI firm Metaphysic, creates “high-resolution photorealistic faceswaps and de-ageing effects on top of actors’ performances live and in real time without the need for further compositing or VFX work”. Both praise and criticism have been heaped on the technology. Some believe it provides a solution to the problem of replacing aging actors, while others are concerned about the technology’s potential for malicious use. Furthermore, some are concerned about the future of the film industry and the possibility of AI rendering human actors obsolete. Regardless of the consequences, it is clear that the use of AI in Hollywood will only grow.
