Deepfake app puts your face on GIFs while limiting data collection

deepfake doublicat face swap gif ai artificial intelligence

A new app called Doublicat allows users to superimpose their face into popular GIFs using deep learning technology.

In the name of research, here's one I made earlier:

Doublicat uses a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) to do its magic. The GAN is called RefaceAI and is developed by a company of the same name.

RefaceAI was previously used in a face swapping app called Reflect. Elon Musk once used Reflect to put his face on Dwayne Johnson's...

Nvidia explains how ‘true adoption’ of AI is making an impact

Nvidia Senior Director of Enterprise David Hogan spoke at this year’s AI Expo about how the company is seeing artificial intelligence adoption making an impact.

In the keynote session, titled ‘What is the true adoption of AI’, Hogan provided real-world examples of how the technology is being used and enabled by Nvidia’s GPUs. But first, he highlighted the momentum we’re seeing in AI.

“Many governments have announced investments in AI and how they're going...

Toy around with deep learning in Nvidia’s AI Playground

Nvidia launched an online space called AI Playground on Monday which allows people to mess around with some deep learning experiences.

AI Playground is designed to be accessible in order to help anyone get started and learn about the potential of artificial intelligence. Who knows, it may even inspire some to enter the field and help to address the huge skill shortage.

The experience currently features three demos:

Microsoft and MIT develop AI to fix driverless car ‘blind spots’

Microsoft and MIT have partnered on a project to fix so-called virtual ‘blind spots’ which lead driverless cars to make errors.

Roads, especially while shared with human drivers, are unpredictable places. Training a self-driving car for every possible situation is a monumental task.

The AI developed by Microsoft and MIT compares the action taken by humans in a given scenario to what the driverless car’s own AI would do. Where the human decision is more optimal, the...

Trump speech ‘DeepFake’ shows a present AI threat

A so-called ‘DeepFake’ video of a Trump speech was broadcast on a Fox-owned Seattle TV network, showing a very present AI threat.

The station, Q13, broadcasted a doctored Trump speech in which he somehow appeared even more orange and pulled amusing faces.

You can see a side-by-side comparison with the original below:

Following the broadcast, a Q13 employee was sacked. It’s unclear if...

Talent has begun leaking from DeepMind in recent months

If DeepMind is on your CV, you could walk into most tech companies and be offered a job on the spot with a six-figure salary. The firm is full of in-demand talent and its CEO once bragged that no employees had ever left.

Speaking to The Guardian in 2016, DeepMind CEO Demis Hassabis said:

“We are able to literally get the best scientists from each country each year. So we’ll have, say, the person that won the Physics Olympiad in Poland, the person who got the top...

Stanford University students employ AI to make the dankest memes

stanford university ai dank learning memes

AI will be groundbreaking in areas like healthcare, but I don’t think many expected it to be creating the dankest new memes. Some pioneering students from Stanford University exposed a neural network to over 400,000 memes in a bid to teach it the nuances of modern humour. Armed with this information, the AI attempted the artistic endeavour of creating its very own. In the ‘Dank Learning’ paper, the students detail how they applied deep learning methods to create memes. Ideas are passed...

Cray launches AI products to accelerate deep learning

Supercomputer manufacturer Cray has introduced a new set of four artificial intelligence (AI) products to accelerate the adoption of deep learning in science and enterprise. The new products include Cray Accel AI Lab, which aims to advance the development of deep learning technologies and workflows, and Cray Accel AI Offerings, featured with NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU accelerators. The new Cray Urika-XC software suite, which brings graph analytics, deep learning, and big data analytics tools...

HPE adds new platforms and services to ease artificial intelligence adoption

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has added a new set of platforms and services to ease the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI), with an initial focus on deep learning. The new set of purpose-built platforms and services will ease the task of deploying and scaling deep learning models among data scientists, developers and IT departments.  According to HPE, deep learning, a key subset of AI, takes its inspiration from the human brain and is typically implemented for difficult jobs such...
