Enhancing Photorealism Enhancement

“We present an approach to enhancing the realism of synthetic images. The images are enhanced by a convolutional network that leverages intermediate representations produced by conventional rendering pipelines. The network is trained via a novel adversarial objective, which provides strong supervision at multiple perceptual levels. We analyze scene layout distributions in commonly used datasets and find that they differ in important ways. We hypothesize that this is one of the causes of strong artifacts that can be observed in the results of many prior methods. To address this we propose a new strategy for sampling image patches during training. We also introduce multiple architectural improvements in the deep network modules used for photorealism enhancement. We confirm the benefits of our contributions in controlled experiments and report substantial gains in stability and realism in comparison to recent image-to-image translation methods and a variety of other baselines.”

Image GPT

“We find that, just as a large transformer model trained on language can generate coherent text, the same exact model trained on pixel sequences can generate coherent image completions and samples. By establishing a correlation between sample quality and image classification accuracy, we show that our best generative model also contains features competitive with top convolutional nets in the unsupervised setting.”

“NVIDIA Maxine is a fully accelerated platform SDK for developers of video conferencing services to build and deploy AI-powered features that use state-of-the-art models in their cloud. Video conferencing applications based on Maxine can reduce video bandwidth usage down to one-tenth of H.264 using AI video compression, dramatically reducing costs.”

“Un surnom a été donné au fait de se penser imparfait ou imparfaite à cause de filtres. C’est la « dysmorphie Snapchat ». On accuse les filtres de renforcer la pression notamment sur les femmes. Des chirurgiens racontent que de plus en plus d’utilisatrices de réseaux sociaux demandent à se faire opérer pour ressembler à la version « filtrée ». On ignore encore si des filtres vus comme « embellissants » comme celui (très populaire) de l’influenceuse Kylie Jenner seront concernés.”

“We are building the next generation of media through the power of AI. Copyrights, distribution rights, and infringement claims will soon be things of the past. To give you a glimpse of what we have been working on we created a free resource of 100k high-quality faces. Every image was generated by our internal AI systems as it continually improves. Use them in your presentations, projects, mockups or wherever — all for just a link back to us!”

“We propose an alternative generator architecture for generative adversarial networks, borrowing from style transfer literature. The new architecture leads to an automatically learned, unsupervised separation of high-level attributes (e.g., pose and identity when trained on human faces) and stochastic variation in the generated images (e.g., freckles, hair), and it enables intuitive, scale-specific control of the synthesis. The new generator improves the state-of-the-art in terms of traditional distribution quality metrics, leads to demonstrably better interpolation properties, and also better disentangles the latent factors of variation. To quantify interpolation quality and disentanglement, we propose two new, automated methods that are applicable to any generator architecture. Finally, we introduce a new, highly varied and high-quality dataset of human faces.”

“In a world where surveillance technology is being deployed everywhere from airports and stadiums to public schools and hotels and raising a plethora of privacy concerns, it’s perhaps inevitable that farms on land and at sea would find ways to exploit it to improve productivity. Just this year, American agribusiness giant Cargill Inc. said it was working with an Irish tech start-up on a facial-recognition system to monitor cows so farmers can adjust feeding regimens to enhance milk production. Scanners will allow them to track food and water intake and even detect when females are having fertile days. Salmon farming may be next in line. As fish vies with beef and chicken as the global protein food of choice, exporters like Norway, the world’s biggest producer of the pinkish-orange fish, have become the focal point for radical marine-farming methods designed to help the $232 billion aquaculture industry feed the world.”
