The latest AI fakery is thankfully something more peaceful and calming than most. Doodle some colours on a screen and NVIDIA’s GauGAN (get it?) will turn them into photorealistic landscapes.
Every time I see a new angle for a Generative Adversarial Network I get more and more excited by what these systems can do. The waterfall example really blows my mind (around 19 seconds into the video).
All we have so far is the demo reel, but NVIDIA hopes it could release a version we could all play around with on its AI Playground website soon.
