For those who have always wondered what it was like to visit Paris, France during the Belle Époque-era between the years of 1896-1900, this video is as close as you’ll get. Denis Shiryaev used AI-powered neural networks and software to boost the video to 60FPS, 4K resolution, and colorization with DeOldify NN. Read more for the video and additional information.
To train a neural network, a database of examples where the right answer is already known is required. Artificial intelligence researchers sometimes have to hire human beings to produce these by hand, but in the case of image upscaling, you’re able to start with high-resolution images and downsample them. The low-resolution images then become your inputs, thus making the high-resolution originals the “correct” answer the network is aiming to produce.
