As technology continues to evolve at a rapid rate, Artificial Intelligence is starting to play a key integral role in everyday life for many users especially through Deep Learning techniques. For this post we have combined the old with the new to see Deep Learning in action as it attempts to colourise history.
Deep Learning is a the development of an artificial neural network which attempts to mimic the layers of neurons in the brain’s neocortex. High profile projects using this technique include Google DeepMind AlphaGo, Facebook M and Microsoft Tay.
We are using the service of Algorithma who have built a demo based on the Colorful Image Colorization algorithm created by Richard Zhang, Phillip Isola, and Alexei A. Efros.
