Machine learning isn't just about making programs more efficient. 🤨
The team behind the Kapwing (the modern meme maker
) just launched Cartoonify
, a magic algorithm that cartoonifies a photo into a drawing that any stick-figure artist would be proud of. Try it out.
This isn't the only AI-powered tool built for creatives:
📝 The AI built into Google's Quick Draw
will try to guess what you're drawing in real-time. It's scarily accurate.
While many of these tools are completely silly, they’re a good illustration (pun intended) of the future of art and tech’s influence on culture. When will AI create the first billboard top 100 hit? Will CGI models replace real models (we’re already seeing a trend toward digital celebrities)
? The future is weird.
