Houdini used to demo new AI tool LiveStory

Last year MyHeritage developed an AI tool that brought old photographs to life. It's was wild tech that allowed us some fun with Houdini images. Now the site is back with an enhanced version called LiveStory, and they've used Houdini to demo it!

"Houdini" makes more than a few mistakes about his life here. Of course, the real Houdini did as well, so maybe that makes this all the more real! The idea that Harry and Bess met in 1893 and were married a year later is an error I keep seeing repeated. Were is this coming from, I wonder?
