Neural Style Transfer
Digital Masterpieces, a start-up company of the Hasso Plattner Institut for Digital Engineering, has recently finish a first full version of digital imaging system based on neural style transfer. The app, freely available as “BeCasso”, instantly converts digital photography into “pieces of artworks”, providing a large number of styles derived from world-class painters (digitalmasterpieces.com).
BeCasso technology received the Best Paper Award at the SIGGRAPH Asia 2017 Symposium on Mobile Graphics and Interactive Applications (MGIA) where it also received the Best Demo Award for the contribution "Pictory - Neural Style Transfer and Editing with CoreML".
This technology delivers features required by future digital brushes, digital paints and digital imaging solutions. As a service-oriented system, it can be integrated as component into complex workflows of image-based or video-based processing systems as well.
