UC Berkeley’s new application transforming paintings into pictures

Now that Prisma took the challenge to transform picture into paintings, it is time to inverse the situation.  UC Berkeley researchers applied the process “image-to-image translation” which reconvert paintings into pictures, among other things.

This same process were also used to alter season for the same picture, or even swap different objects in the photos. You can also apply painter’s styles to your image.

To conclude, no application is out yet, however, it is still a prototype.   High expectations are put on that emerging application, especially people who work in the photo processing field.

Adobe: Artificial Intelligence for better photography

A team of researchers working at Adobe and at University of Cornell developed a user centric application based on artificial intelligence that is -on one hand- capable of coping the style of a picture and – on another- using the same style onto a different picture.

“Deep Photo Style Transfer” was the name given to that innovative application. In order to transfer a reference style from a picture to another, the application uses the deep learning technique.

The application is user friendly, and very simple to use. In the first place, all you have to do is to choose an initial image, then you’ll have to pick up the “look alike” cliché to which you’d like your picture be similar to. In one click and the job is done to you thanks to the Artificial Intelligence developed by Adobe.

The application will adjust the colors, the brightness as well as the contrast. In other terms, every single detail in the reference picture will be applied to the picture you chose.

Researchers at Adobe were based on the efforts of European scientists in order to put together the application “Deep Photo Style Transfer”.  Comparing to what Adobe did, the difference with “Neuronal Style Transfer” remain in an Artificial Intelligence consisting a neuronal network that copies opposite colors.

To conclude, here’s a quick sneak pick of the AI’s future at Adobe’s. The Team wishes to improve the technics and the settings in order to have better and more colors. However Adobe did not precise if it will adopt the AI in all its future applications. But one thing is sure, if you have a Linux you can download now “Deep Photo Style Transfer” on GitHub.
