NVIDIA Uses AI to Turn Cats into Dogs, Lions and Tigers, Too

It turns out a leopard can change its spots. Thanks to NVIDIA researchers’ new GPU-accelerated deep learning technique, a leopard — or at least a picture of it — can simultaneously turn into a house cat, a tiger or even a dog. It works for video, too. The ability to turn one image or video into many could help game developers and filmmakers move faster, spend less and create richer experiences. It also could boost autonomous vehicles’ ability to handle a wider variety of road conditions by more quickly and easily generating diverse training data.
