Researchers from American technology company NVIDIA have developed a deep learning method that can reconstruct damaged, corrupted, or partially-erased photos with realistic results.
The method performs a process called “image inpainting” that can also be used in photo editing software to remove unwanted objects and fill those areas with realistic computer-generated alternatives, similar to what Photoshop’s Content-Aware tool does.
But unlike Photoshop’s Content-Aware tool, NVIDIA’s A.I. doesn’t obtain information from surrounding pixels to fill the gaps, it actually understands what the object should look like. Check out the examples below.
