    New tool (GauGAN) for artists creates photorealistic images from segmentation maps which are labeled sketches that depict the layout of a scene.

    Looks like it just comes down to color fill (and perhaps screen position?) determining what type of stock imagery to use to fill in the space and what properties to assign to that space. Also set scenery to use for transitions between color fill areas.

    Still pretty cool to see though.

    it's doing a bunch of stuff, but it's starting off with basic premises, color helps determine what it is, but it's really the shape that is a bigger differentiator it appears.

    Will be interesting to see how far they can take this. Apparently it has some smarts since it will adjusts the whole landscape lighting depending on time of day, color or materials used in particular areas. Great idea for making your own desktop backgrounds.

    You tell it what to draw. You select bush, gravel, snow, etc and blob it in.

    Here's Sky, Dirt, River, Mountain, Bush

    I broke it with Snow and Sand in the same image!

    You can select abstract templates as a reference image and it changes the results to make them abstract. The red hand, black blob image gets interesting results. It seems to be building some form of representation and chopping up a reference image.

    GANIMAL
    We’ve all passed a Chihuahua on the street that’s the size of a guinea pig with the attitude of a German Shepherd. With GANimal, you can bring your pet’s alter ego to life by projecting their expression and pose onto other animals.

    Once you input an image into the GANimal app, the image translation network unleashes your pet’s true self by projecting their unique characteristics onto everything from a lynx to a Saint Bernard.
