    In DFSM we will teach a software to memorize faces, expressions and movements of a person’s face so that the machine can later project that information onto another person’s face.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    General Public is unaware of this technology through our project we will introduce this technology to the general public.It can be used in entertainment industry or as a fun app.

   Our product’s perspective is to introduce this new technology to general public. It covers the entertainment industry, social media, and content creators. In entertainment industry it can be used for replacing actors in movies that doesn’t even exist. On social media it can be used as a fun app.
How will the solution works
    We will use Deep Learning techniques to implement this idea. In which user will input two videos i.e. source and target video. Frame extraction will be done at the server.After that faces will be extracted through these frames. Pre-trained model will be used at the server for training data on those faces. At last swapped video will be generated at the server and sent back at the web app.
