Old footage of Tokyo upscaled using neural networks, colorized and interpolated to 60 frames per second

Denis Shiryaev writes that this footage, filmed in Tokyo between 1913-1915 as "Japan of Today", was upscaled using neural networks. FPS boosted to 60 frames per second, I have also fixed some playback speed issues; Faces are enhanced too – I have added to the pipeline of algorithms a neural network which is specially designed for facial restoration. Image resolution boosted up to 4k – with digital artifacts, but some parts are improved noticeably; Removed noise and fixed some damaged part...

Lunar Rover Footage Upscaled With AI Is as Close as You'll Get to the Experience of Driving on the Moon

The last time astronauts walked on the moon was in December of 1972, decades before high-definition video cameras were available. They relied on low-res grainy analog film to record their adventures, which makes it hard for viewers to feel connected to what’s going on. But using modern AI techniques to upscale classic…Read more...

How neural networks work - A good explainer video

How does a neural network connect perceptions to concepts? In other words, how can you make something that accepts an array of pixels as an input and correctly outputs "dog" or "cat?" This video from Art of the Problem does a good job of explaining how neural networks are able to do this, and why it's important to have neural networks with many layers.

Immunai wants to map the entire immune system and raised $20 million in seed funding to do it

For the past two years the founding team of Immunai had been working stealthily to develop a new technology to map the immune system of any patient. Founded by Noam Solomon, a Harvard and MIT-educated postdoctoral researcher, and former Palantir engineer, Luis Voloch, Immunai was born from the two men’s interest in computational biology and systems engineering. When the two were introduced to Ansuman Satpathy, a professor of cancer immunology at Stanford University, and Danny Wells, who works...

Neural network makes 3D images from still pictures

Simon Niklaus, Long Mai, Jimei Yang, and Feng Liu developed software that gives a 3D Ken Burns effect to still images. From their paper: Experiments with a wide variety of image content show that our method enables realistic synthesis results. Our study demonstrates that our system allows users to achieve better results while requiring little effort compared to existing solutions for the 3D Ken Burns effect creation.

Beware: Polaroids of You in the 70s Could Now Be Made Hi-Def

Reddit user Shir_man has posted this video, in which he says he’s used neural networks to “upgrade” the classic Lumière Brothers film L’arrivée d’un train en gare de La Ciotat (translated into English as Oh Look, Train’s Here) to 4K and 60 FPS. (If the YouTube thumbnail didn’t give that last part away.) I tried to find the original resolution and frame rate, but I couldn’t find it documented. I assume it was 0.0001K and 5.5 FPS or something. See for yourself: Now the rea...

AI upscaling makes this Lumiere Bros film look new – and you can use the same technique

A.I.! Good gawd y’all – what is it good for? Absolutely … upscaling, actually. Some of machine learning’s powers may prove to be simple but transformative. And in fact, this “enhance” feature we always imagined from sci-fi becomes real. Just watch as a pioneering Lumiere Brothers film is transformed so it seems like something shot with money from the Polish government and screened at a big arty film festival, not 1896. It’s spooky. It’s the work of Denis Shiryaev. (If you speak...

Improved Weather Forecasts Made Using Neural Networks

Using a vast neural network capable of making ultra-quick decisions based on images and predictive learning (rather than physics or meteorology), Google researchers may have finally figured out how to make weather forecasts hour by hour. Traditionally, weather forecasts have taken up to three hours to form, and thus are a little less accurate. As for Google’s, their neural network can formalize a report in …

Deezer’s Spleeter is an open source AI tool to split stems, for remixes or … karaoke?

The real power of machine learning may have nothing to with automating music making, and everything to do with making sound tools hear the way you do. There’s a funny opening to the release for Deezer’s open source Spleeter tool: While not a broadly known topic, the problem of source separation has interested a large community of music signal researchers for a couple of decades now. Wait a second – sure, you may not call it “source separation,” but anyone who has tried to make remixes,...

What happens when you feed Trump’s “I WANT NOTHING” note to a Neural Network?

Donald Trump’s desperate PR attempt “speech” from this morning read kind of like the lyric sheet from some obscure Radiohead-wannabe art-rock band. So naturally, comedian Emily Heller took it to the next level by feeding it into OpenAI’s “Talk To Transformer” Neural Network. I fed the first part of Trump's I WANT NOTHING note into @OpenAI's Neural Network on and the computer did the rest — Emily Heller (@MrEmilyHeller) November 20, 20...
