NVIDIA highlights the work of Ming-Yu Liu, one of its researchers who wrote a paper on Unsupervised Image-to-Image Translation Networks. I won't bore you with the details and will just show you what this piece of AI can do. It can turn input winter images into AI-generated summer images, turn sunny videos into rainy clips, and turn day into night!
The quality of the videos is very low but it's still pretty impressive. Full details at the NVIDIA blog.
To give machines a more “imaginative” capability, such as imagining how a wintery scene would look like in the summer, Liu and team used unsupervised learning and generative modeling. An example of their work is shown below, where the winter and sunny scenes on the left are the inputs and the imagined corresponding summer and rainy scenes are on the right.
