Artificial intelligence now makes it possible to recreate the faces of historical figures. That of Séthi 1er, one of the greatest pharaohs who reigned over Egypt, was recently modeled and revealed on the Instagram account of My Colorful Past.
Matt Loughrey is an Irishman fascinated by technology and history. He created the My Colorfust Past site on which he colors and recreates certain faces from historical photos, using technology that Matt has developed for more than five years.

The Irishman is thus able to revive 19th century photos, but he did not stop there. “I was convinced that there was a way to travel much further, before the advent of photography,” he explains. He saw Egyptian funerary masks and mummies as a way to recreate faces from a time when photography did not exist.
Its technology has allowed it to revive the faces of historical figures who lived hundreds or even thousands of years ago, such as Séthi I, the Egyptian pharaoh son of Ramses I, who died 3,300 years ago. He also partially recreated the face of Tutankhamun, a famous pharaoh who lived more than 3,330 years ago.
