We've already seen how AI image-processing algorithms can be dumb and smart at the same time, and that' s on "Most GAN-based image translation networks are trained to solve a single task. "In this case, we train a network to jointly solve many translation tasks, where each task is about translating a

Over the weekend, Nvidia announced that it has trained an AI -- which you can test out yourself -- to put the expression of one animal realistically onto the face of another.

With Nvidia's new GANimal app, you can put the smile of your pooch onto the face of a lion, tiger, or bear. In fact, this app can recreate the expression of any animal on the face of any other creature.

To accomplish this, the technology company trained an AI using generative adversarial networks, "an emerging AI technique that pits one neural network against another." The network can translate the image onto a slew of target animals -- even those it has never seen before. Instead of having to feed the network several images of your dog, it can perform this task with just one input image, which makes the process simpler than ever.

NVIDIA will remaster more games with RTX ray tracing

  NVIDIA will remaster more games with RTX ray tracing Quake II RTX is far from the last game to receive an NVIDIA ray tracing upgrade. DSOG has discovered that NVIDIA is hiring a producer for its Lightspeed Studios unit to lead work on a "game remastering program" that will add RTX ray tracing to more classic titles. The GPU maker is unsurprisingly shy about just which games are in the pipeline. The next project is a game "you know and love" -- not a real clue, but promising nonetheless. LightspeedLightspeed worked on the Quake II RTX remaster and was also responsible for bringing numerous games to Android through NVIDIA's Shield devices, including Half-Life 2 and even a China-only port of Super Mario Galaxy.

With the introduction of RTX Studio, NVIDIA put its gaming RTX GPUs on a nearly equal footing with more costly professional Quadro products. We've already seen how AI image-processing algorithms can be dumb and smart at the same time, and that' s on full display with NVIDIA ' s latest interactive

Users can try it themselves and put their pet's expression on animals like an Arctic fox, American black bear or lynx.

According to the company, this type of technology could potentially be used in filmmaking, to not only alter animals' expressions, but also to map their movements and recreate them on leopards or jaguars.

The GANimal app is the most recent step in the company's lead computer-vision researcher Ming-yu Liu's goal to "code human-like imagination into neural networks."

The tool uses the same kind of network as the one behind GauGAN, a technology that turned simple doodles into photorealistic landscapes, which users can also try out for themselves.

PC gamers: Rate and review the RTX 2060 Super or 2070 Super .
Affordable, fast and with excellent dual-fan cooling, AMD's two new ray-tracing cards (the RTX 2060 Super and the 2070 Super) took the place of the company's excellent Ti lineup. NVIDIA's release of the GPUs was, according to senior editor Devindra Hardawar, "clearly a response to AMDs new midrange" cards. Dev managed to get impressive frame rates and gaming performance out of each, awarding the 2060 Super a score of 87 and the 2070 an 86. LastLast week, we asked users who had chosen from AMD's GPU lineup to share their experiences with the cards. This week we want to hear from those who bought an NVIDIA RTX 2060 Super or 2070 Super instead.
