AI image generators and enhancers have all sorts of applications. Some are scientifically significant, some are plain fun, and some are downright strange and unsettling. Such is the latest trend of using AI to recreate dead people.

And it’s nothing fancy, just Midjourney and ChatGPT that we can all use for the same purpose if we want – which never crossed my mind, honestly!
