I am always curious to explore the possibilities of modern technologies: I previously had so much fun using an artificial intelligence app to see what the kids of celebrities and iconic fictional couples would have looked like, turned famous people from the '80s and '90s into children, and brought celebrities who passed away to life again.

The lives of most of these legendary people from film, television, and music ended way too soon and often in the prime of their careers and we can only imagine what their lives could've been, but we can at least try and recreate their appearance. I decided to continue experimenting with the power of A.I. to find out what famous people would have possibly looked like today if they were still alive.

Here is a unique opportunity to see what these 30 celebrities would have looked like in 2021 and to celebrate their talent and impact on the world.

I found out about artificial intelligence and its possibilities while searching for new stories and artists to share on Bored Panda. I was inspired by amazing art and decided to challenge myself and come up with something original and entertaining.

Artificial intelligence can be defined as the ability of devices to reason, decide, and solve problems. And some already act autonomously and do not need human supervision—like cars that do not need a driver, for example. I'm sure that in addition to having fun creating these images that I made, A.I. ​​will affect the world a lot.

I think he would look younger from his age

I have always been a fan of pop culture. I grew up watching romantic comedies, listening to songs about perfect love, and reading novels that exalt sacrifices as proof of love. After watching them, I always wanted to know who was the celebrity behind the character and this led me to fall in love with this industry. I was wondering how stars who passed away too early would look today. Of course, the images generated with A.I. are not 100% accurate and there is no way to put it to the test, but it is a great way to somehow remember and honor these beloved celebrities.

The first part of this project made me famous all over the world. From Japan to Iraq, I received a lot of positive feedback and requests to publish my work in online magazines and broadcast on television. Many people who lost their loved ones reached out to me to find out how they would be these days and it gives me a lot of joy and makes me realize how important my art is to many people.
