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 >

To Infinity and Beyond: NVIDIA Research Lets VR Users Explore Vast Virtual Worlds

Virtual worlds are infinite, but your living room is not. Today, the size of physical space limits VR users’ ability to move in boundless virtual space. And VR isn’t particularly immersive if you trip over the couch. The NVIDIA Research team is collaborating with Adobe and Stony Brook University to solve the problem, and they’re Read article >
