THE BEST Machine Learning

NYC 1911 @ 4K 60 FPS

After wowing us with upscaled vintage train footage, Denis Shiryaev takes us on a tour of New York City, circa 1911. Using neural network tech, he injected extra frames to smooth out the choppy movements from this century-old slice of life film. He also boosted its resolution to 4k. We don’t care for the colorization though.

How Algorithms Replace Your Brain

How Algorithms Replace Your Brain

(PG-13: Language) While true artificial intelligence is a fascinating concept, most machine learning tech still uses some kind of algorithmic decision making. Ordinary Things provides a layperson’s explanation of how these systems work, and how our reliance on algorithms could make us stupider, and take our jobs in the process.

The Universal LEGO Sorter

The Universal LEGO Sorter

We’ve seen machines that can sort LEGO bricks before, but they’re generally limited to just a few specific shapes or colors. Daniel West’s machine is much smarter, using AI algorithms to identify and sort nearly 3,000 different LEGO shapes and colors. We think it’ll need more than 18 sorting bins to be really useful though.

A Bot Writes Batman

Comedian Keaton Patti claims to have fed an AI system 1000 hours of footage from Batman movies (we didn’t know there were that many), and then let its tech produce a new script based on what it learned. Nerd Odyssey posted the very silly result of his efforts, with animation by C4DNerd.

Faking Talking Heads

Faking Talking Heads

Scientists from Samsung’s Moscow-based AI Research Center recently showed off “Few-Shot Adversarial Learning” tech, which can generate talking head videos from just a handful of still images, and a source video of another head. It’s so impressive, they even made the Mona Lisa talk.

Deep Learning Music Video

Deep Learning Music Video

Experimental band Hardcore Anal Hydrogen created a trippy and vibrant music video for their thrash metal track Jean-Pierre, created with the help of artificial intelligence tools like Deep Dream, Neutral Style Transfer, and DeepFlow. Read more about the project here.

There’s Waldo Robot

There’s Waldo Robot

The Where’s Waldo books have a simple premise – look for the bespectacled, striped sweatered, knit-capped Waldo among a sea of people. If you don’t have the patience to find Waldo yourself, Redpepper’s AI-powered robot arm will take care of it for you.

DeepMind Learns to Walk

DeepMind Learns to Walk

Google’s DeepMind artificial intelligence algorithms recently were used in an experiment where a stick figure learned to walk all by itself. But Andreas Almström couldn’t leave well enough alone, and added appropriately disturbing sound effects to the silent video.
