Transforming Objects in Image Editing

Interesting use of the ideaof learned transformation.   Could be used for example in editing images with their technical details to represent contextual details.

AI Taught to Instantly Transform Objects in Image-Editing Software

A team of researchers from NVIDIA, Adobe Research, and Aalto University in Finland has developed an artificial intelligence (AI)-controlled program that lets the user transform the shape of objects in images, as well as permitting adjustments to lighting and perspective. The researchers built the program using generative adversarial networks (GANs), which are made up of two competing AIs: a generator that creates an image, and a discriminator that decides whether the image is real or fake. After several rounds, the generator can produce images so realistic that the discriminator can no longer tell the difference. The team analyzed existing GANs to determine the way they each modify images into components. The program provides a simple yet powerful way to create images with existing AIs, without the massive computational requirements to train new algorithms for specific tasks.  .... "
