The animated portraits hanging in Hogwarts and moving newspaper images in The Daily Prophet were mere movie magic… until now. GoodTrust is the digital will and wishes platform that allows anyone to control and create their digital legacy. They recently launched GoodTrust Memories powered by D-ID, an industry-leading company that specializes in patented video-reenactment technology using computer vision, AI and deep learning. This new feature, recently spotlighted on CBS News, allows anybody to animate a current or historic photo and share it.
I am proud to note that both GoodTrust and D-ID are part of the Microsoft for Startups portfolio, where we provide startups with access to business and technical support, including Microsoft Azure, which GoodTrust uses for fast and secure data hosting.
“The GoodTrust, D-ID and Microsoft for Startups collaboration is a match made in heaven, helping anyone create a digital will for their online life,” said Rikard Steiber, CEO and founder of GoodTrust.
Gil Perry, co-founder and CEO of D-ID said, “Utilizing AI to strengthen our connections to our past is something we at D-ID are passionate about, and we look forward to working with GoodTrust and Microsoft for Startups to advance that purpose.”
At Microsoft for Startups we remain committed to supporting startups with the resources they need, when they need them, regardless of where they are in their startup journey. In addition to technology like Azure, Microsoft for Startups also offers GitHub Enterprise coupled with a streamlined path to selling alongside Microsoft and a comprehensive go-to-market plan. GoodTrust and D-ID exemplify the kind of innovation happening with startups building on the Microsoft Cloud.
We look forward to further innovation from each of these companies and we will continue to support companies with a passion for scale.
