It’s Training Cats and Dogs: NVIDIA Research 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 Read article >

University of Washington Researchers Give MRIs an AI Facelift

The noisy, old MRI machine may get a new lease on life. Magnetic resonance imaging machines in recent years have faced a newer model on the scene, the magnetic resonance angiography machine. MRA units have been heavy lifters for more detailed images of blood vessels, enabling detection of aneurysms and other life-threatening conditions.
