Love Google Street View, but wish some of the sights came in video format rather than interactive images that require you to click? Then look no further than Deep Stereo algorithm, powered by Google’s AI. Google engineers are using their layered artificial neural network to create unseen views from two or more images of a scene. If you have a photo from the left and right of a scene, the deep network will tell you what it looks like from anywhere the middle. Continue reading for a video and more information.
“The network does this by figuring out the depth and color of each pixel of the images, and creates a 3D space using each input photo as a reference plane. Then, it works to fill in the gaps based on color and depth input from the original photos. At its current settings, the deep network can work on 96 planes of depth gathered from images,” reports PopSci.
