Can an AI be creative? Probably not, but they sure can draw some pretty pictures! Generative-Adversarial-Networks (GANs) are an exciting new way to generate images and video (and other media) from learned examples. If we show it what a bunch of cats look like, then it will be able to invent and display new cats. If we show it cars, it can imagine new cars. That’s a fun and useful tool, but GANs truly show their power when we condition them on some other data (cGAN). We might train it to implement Zoom-and-Enhance, or how to turn a night time image into a daytime image, or how to render photo realistic game graphics. The possibilities of GANs sometimes seem endless and I am pleased to share a few of them with you.

You can park under the Bank of America / Hyatt building on the corner of 8th and Bellevue way. The parking garage is free after 8:00pm and has entrances off of 8th, Bellevue Way, and 10th.
