GauGAN turns your doodles into photorealistic landscapes
NVIDIA's deep learning AI model GauGAN, cleverly named after post-impressionist painter Paul Gauguin
, turns simple sketches into realistic scenes in seconds by leveraging generative adversarial networks, or GANs, to convert segmentation maps into lifelike images.
GauGAN allows users to draw their own segmentation maps and manipulate the scene, labeling each segment with labels like sand, sky, sea or snow. The tool also allows users to add a style filter, changing a generated image to adapt the style of a particular painter, or change a daytime scene to sunset.
