Historians and anthropologists often wonder what certain historical figures looked like, and they conduct extensive research and reconstructions to recreate their appearance. But British film editor Duncan Thomsen decided to do it in a different way.

According to Talker, he used the power of artificial intelligence. Not only did he create a series of portraits of famous people of the past - Jesus, Cleopatra, Elizabeth I, Napoleon - but he also asked the algorithm to present them in the form of selfies. To do this, he used the Midjourney system, which works through the Discord app. To see the photos, please read the story to the end.

According to Thomsen, he spent a month developing the prompt formulas, the right way to communicate with the AI, and the photographic elements to get the shots that look like selfies. The man called the images he got hilarious. "The results are hilarious, and everyone I've shared my work with can't believe how real the photos look," the project's author admitted.

Now Thomsen believes that his approach can be used to teach history to children. "This technology can be used in schools as a new way to teach and engage children in world history - it's like traveling through time without a time machine," he says.
