New techniques that enlarge images using AI could improve everything from photos to video game graphics, experts say.
Google researchers recently discussed breakthroughs they’ve made in increasing image resolution. The scientists used a machine learning model to turn a low-res photo into a detailed high-res picture. It’s part of a growing trend of using AI to improve images.
“We’re seeing a rise in AI-powered upscaling, especially in games, where technologies like NVIDIA DLSS use machine learning to recreate a much higher resolution image, which rivals, and sometimes exceeds the quality of the native images,” imaging expert Ionut-Alexandru Popa told Lifewire in an email interview.
