Artificial intelligence (AI) has made friends with graphic design. This interesting information came to us from Extreme Tech in their article, “This new application of layered neural nets is about to make Photoshop amazing.”

A group of researchers from Cornell University and Adobe have layered neural nets atop an image style transfer AI that results in an even more powerful image manipulation tool that they are calling Deep Photo Style Transfer.

This new tool takes a reference image and an input image. Then it clones the style of the reference image onto the input image. The result is seamless because of the semantic segmentation. Semantic segmentation can be tuned for whatever input image it receives.

The researchers are already thinking about other applications for photorealistic style transfer because we all know there is always more out there.
