HOLLYWOOD—All the celebrities are turning to FaceApp, an easy-to-use app that allows you to see what you might look like as an old person. People all over social media, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are now posting their results. FaceApp was developed by the Russian company Wireless Lab which uses neutral network technology to automatically generate highly realistic transformations of faces in photographs.
The app can also transform a face to make it smile, look younger, look older, or even change gender. The company was launched on iOS in January 2017 and on Android in February 2017. Will they steal the face images and use them for spying? It’s already attracted criticism in both the press and social media over the privacy of user data. The company’s founder Yarolslav Goncharov, stated that user data and uploaded images were not being transferred to Russia but instead processed on servers running in Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services.
Everyone is doing it from Buddy Valastro to Carrie Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher. Some of the celebrities that have participated are Mario Lopez, Heidi Klum, Busy Philipps, Cardi B and many, many more. They are just as obsessed as we are, they have been posting selfies in which they have white hair, wrinkles, sagging jawlines, and more signs of aging. As with all viral trends, this one has made it way over to the celebrity set, with some intiguing results. We all know that celebrities are traditionally cheaters of age; it’s nice to imagine what they might look like in 40 or 50 years, assuming all expensive skin-care products and surgical technologies somehow become inaccessible.
