Have you ever wondered what some of our earliest US presidents would look like today? While historical portraits offer some idea of what these figures looked like in life, they leave us wondering just how honest a representation they actually are.

Today, we have the technology to give us a clearer picture of historical figures. Magdalene Visaggio used AI technology to create modern images of US presidents. The technology used is also surprisingly accessible; Visaggio revealed in a tweet the images were created using apps anyone can download to their phone.

While modern technology is by no means perfect, these images of presidents reimagined bring us one step closer to knowing what they really looked like when they were alive.
