High-Resolution Image Synthesis Manipulation

We present a new method for synthesizing high-resolution photo-realistic images from semantic label maps using conditional generative adversarial networks (conditional GANs). Conditional GANs have enabled a variety of applications, but the results are often limited to low-resolution and still far from realistic. In this work, we generate 2048x1024 visually appealing results with a novel adversarial ...

NVIDIA generated images

  Cats are lions and winter is now summer as Nvidia researchers show off a pair of generative adversarial networks that can be used to generate images.     Nvidia researchers have used a pair of generative adversarial networks (GANs) along with some unsupervised learning to create an image-to-image translation network that could allow for ...

NVIDIA AI for image noise reduction

  Much of the keynote address by NVIDIA CEO and founder Jensen Huang focused on machine learning and applications that weren’t central to the visual effects and post industry. However, there was one demonstration which showed how this tech can be used to lead to much faster resolution of ray traced ...

Apple GPU

  Apple is building its own GPU architecture, but why? Rather than being motivated by simple cost savings, evidence points to the timing of a significant technical leap forward that could be as big of an advance as iOS was ten years ago.   Apple has been reportedly working on a GPU project for at ...

Automatically Remove Backgrounds From Images

  Researchers from Adobe, the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign developed a deep learning-based method that clips objects from photos and videos.   Researchers have developed a number of different artificially intelligent programs to automatically subtract a background from an image, but most are based on ...

Google Brain - Photo zoom and enhance

The concept of enhancing a pixelated image isn’t new — “zoom and enhance” is responsible for dozens of criminals being put behind bars in shows like Criminal Minds, but that kind of technology has so far evaded the real world. Well, the boffins over at Google Brain ...

New NVIDIA HQ

Image Credit: Dean Takahashi Nvidia‘s new headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif., is shaped like a triangle, and that goes to the heart of what the company is all about. Triangles, after all, are the polygonal building blocks for 3D graphics images, and Nvidia has become the world’s largest stand-alone company making 3...

Self-driving delivery robots coming to the UK, U.S. in 2016

  Before Amazon or Google can get their delivery drones in the sky, another, much lesser known company plans to beat them to the punch — on the ground.  Skype co-founders Ahti Heinla and Janus Friis have launched Starship Technologies, a company that plans to send tiny, wheeled robots ...
