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.

What's it do when you try and draw a face, though?

lol good question!

One of my favourite flash mobs and tunes. <3

In der Tat, liebe @Su Ann Lim , ich denke, hier können wir den Daumen genauso nutzen, wie das „+“ auf G+.
Man könnte hier, sogar noch die erweiterte Möglichkeit, den Daumen nach unten verwenden.
Ich vermisse das „+“ von G+ nicht!!!!! ;)

/me +1’s @Su Ann Lim 's last comment ➕ 😀

I will do my best to showcase select songs highlighting guitars all month during my DJ sets :) Meanwhile, I need to get some new strings ;)

The proper way to pronouce this is "gee tar" :)

It’s guitar month every month! My babies need new strings, and I needed to see that to remind me again, rock on! ✌️💕 🎸

Saying so long to G+ today! Thank you to the Fediverse for being so welcoming!

Got any generous friends?

A look back in time coming forward to today :) When did you first access it?

@Garry Knight... I access USENET via my Thunderbird email client (NNTP) and Works very well! :)

Ah, yes, thanks. I'd forgotten that I still have an account there. At least, I think I do. It was all a long time ago...

test share for @randulo

Add the opening line of your novel here! (any topic)

Title: "Rest Area"
Subtitle: "The road trip you will never want to experience"
Opening line: "Filthy, but serviceable. Like my life", he thought to himself as he lifted the toilet seat with his foot.


Test comment for myself!


I remember reading about the actress Hedy Lamarr

Totally floored me

I have been out of teaching in the field for over a decade Ada Lovelace. Early mechanical computers?

I knew the name and was on track. Not bad, I guess for having retired 13 years ago.

There have been some questions recently and interest from role players and gamers about rp in social virtual worlds. This is one of the virtual world grids running open source software and providing free accounts with active role players. The largest group is United Federation Starfleet but I am told there are others moving to this non-profit grid as well. (Public region rating is PG or Moderate.) Take a look and let me or @Rhia Bachman know if you have any questions!

This is an interesting view. My hope is the implementations by the members of the EU regarding the Copyright Directive will bring some sanity - however I don't have much faith in that given the GDPR implementation. How is your organization or company preparing and what country are you headquartered?

The US, so we're not really affected, but we do have a partnership in Germany...

We don't know yet how the EU members will implement the directive into law and if US companies doing business with EU customers will be affected yet like they are with GDPR.

Vice's Broadly creates a free, gender-inclusive stock photo library

Stock photos don't have a great reputation when it comes to gender-inclusivity. Options are limited at best or non-existent at worst.

My 23 year old Son is transitioning F2M. And it is really amazing and uplifting. Trans people I know, my age, myself included. We have so much angst about "passing", and conforming to society's stupidity. My Son and friends his age are just like "fuck you, you don't get to choose who I am!" It's really awesome, and it has made me a little braver. :)
