Artificial intelligence (AI) has had a major impact in several areas in recent months. The images created by AI tools such as Midjourney have been widely circulated on social media. And now an artist has used the tool to reimagine popular Indian cricketers from the 1950s. The collection of flashback photos has taken social media by storm and is going viral on Reddit, where it is being shared as a clip. The video was posted by Redditor @anshuwuman on the ‘IndianArtAI’ subreddit and received almost 2,500 votes.
Indian cricketers as they were in the 1950s
The video starts with a black and white photo of Virat Kohli, looking sleek with a French beard and slicked back hair. Next, Rohit Sharma is shown in a jacket, followed by MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya.
Shubhman Gill is also part of the transformation, along with Jasprit Bumrah, KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja with unconventional looks.
Reddit users were amazed by the creativity.
“Is the third one MSD? By the way, Clr Rahul was the best among them,” said a user. “Their retro looks so stylish,” said another.
“In the 1950s everyone had a great jawline,” said a third user.
“AI continues to exceed my expectations,” read another comment.
A few days ago, a collection of stunning images of buildings in Mumbai, reimagined as floating in the sky, had gone viral on social media.
The photos showed uniquely shaped, modern buildings high in the sky, floating above the Mumbai cityscape. The hyper-realistic images also shed light on the city’s housing woes and envision the ‘surreal’ future of Mumbai’s real estate landscape.
Prateek Arora, the artist who created the images, says they were created using Midjourney.
