Neural style transfer - Uzumaki

in art •  2 years ago

Hi all, new Steemit user here.

For my first post, an image I made with neural-style, which allows you to transfer the style of one image onto another using a pre-trained neural network (similar to DeepDream). I combined two psychedelic patterns that I came across on Instagram and then used that style to render the spiral, which was plain black and white.

I've also tried a video application of this type of software which uses another deep learning algorithm to map the "flow" between each frame of a video file and apply smooth style transfer to that. It takes a hell of a lot of computing power (my GTX 1070 takes about a day to render 15 seconds of video at just under 720p), but the results are interesting. Style transfer can also be applied to 360 video and viewed using a VR headset, the quality is not exactly magnificent at this point but you can definitely see the potential.

So far, my experience of using the above software has been a lot of fun, 99% of the images I made while learning how to use it were grotesque, slightly unnverving, or hilariously malformed, nowadays it is closer to 95% so it was definitely worth my time to learn. I'll be posting some of the more interesting things I make, and potentially some low-tech tutorial videos, if I can figure it out well enough to explain.
