AI and machine learning hold incredible promise for post-production image editing, if new research is any indication. Engineers at Nvidia recently demoed an AI system — — that creates convincingly lifelike landscape photographs from whole cloth, while Microsoft scientists last month a framework capable of producing images and storyboards from natural language captions.
But what about AI that paints with common sense? Thanks to an enterprising team at the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab, a collaboration between MIT and IBM to jointly pursue AI techniques over the next decade, it’s made its way from the literature to the web. A publicly available tool — — lets users upload any photograph and edit the appearance of depicted buildings, flora, and fixtures to their heart’s content. Impressively, it’s
