Nvidia continues to pave a path towards the end of reality as we know it. The company recently made an AI capable of creating images of people out of thin air. Now, it’s made one that can change the weather, turn day into night, and change a leopard’s spots.
AI researchers for the company developed an unsupervised learning method for computers which allows for sweeping changes to video content it’s fed. By using the new method, they were able to produce startling results.
Previous methods required massive amounts of data by comparison. And the issue was made more difficult when trying to train the machines to find their own patterns, the basis of unsupervised learning.
They considered the problem similar to teaching a machine to colorizing a photo, according to the researchers’ white paper:
Today the machines are mapping sunny days to rainy ones and creating the equivalent of a “snow plow” filter for …
