Discover Style Transfer(Machine learning)

What is style transfer? What is machine learning? How do they apply to computer vision? If you have ever wondered about these things, then you are not alone. Today, We are surrounded by computer vision can be and it can be a very useful tool if used. The term "style transfer" refers to the transformation of one artistic image into another using machine learning. For this video, I used an app called RunwayML for free.

    I did not document it this time but I do recommend following Derrick Schulz. I have learned the most from his resources. Runway ML is also very well documented, I have shared a video below.

EBsynth is also a software that uses non Machine learning method to transfer style.

Helping hand - Truly beautiful animation film.

often forget to share my inspiration and show appreciation. So here I'm sharing a recent favourite short film by Oliver sin. Absolutely love this shit. Look at the colors.

"It's a humorous short montage of "two hands, helping each other out". But what starts off as a charming set of hands aiding each other with tasks such as cooking, DIY or changing the tyres, slowly turns a little dark. Watch and see for yourself." - Creative boom
