Nvidia launched an online space called AI Playground on Monday which allows people to mess around with some deep learning experiences.
AI Playground is designed to be accessible in order to help anyone get started and learn about the potential of artificial intelligence. Who knows, it may even inspire some to enter the field and help to address the huge skill shortage.
The experience currently features three demos:
Artistic Style Transfer
Photorealistic Image Synthesis
As you probably guessed from their names, all of the current demos are based around imagery.
Imagine InPainting allows the user to upload their own image and edit it with powerful AI tools. Content is able to be removed and replaced.
Artistic Style Transfer is fairly self-explanatory. The style of an uploaded image can be copied in another. This will help to satisfy the curiosity of anyone who wondered how it would look if Leonardo Da Vinci painted them instead of Lisa Gherardini. A convolutional neural network based on 80,000 images of people, scenery, animals, and moving objects had to be trained for this project.
Finally, Photorealistic Image Synthesis. This demo entirely fabricates photorealistic images and environments with eerie detail.
Bryan Catanzaro, VP of applied deep learning research at Nvidia, said in a statement:
“Research papers have new ideas in them and are really cool, but they’re directed at specialised audiences. We’re trying to make our research more accessible.
The AI Playground allows everyone to interact with our research and have fun with it.”
Nvidia plans to add more demos to its AI Playground over time.
