New York (The Verge) — Classic 1896 short film gets upscaled to 4K using neural networks trib.al/pO8nemT.
A classic short film has been upscaled to 4K and 60fps using neural networks. The results are very impressive. The upscaling makes the movie look like something that could have been filmed today.
Denis Shiryaev, who did the upscaling, said he used several neural networks to upscale the original film, L’Arrivée d’un train en gare de La Ciotat (translated to Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat Station). The upscaled version, while not perfect, looks crisp, and I recommend comparing the original film and Shiryaev’s version side by side. The differences are quite apparent. — Jay Peters/@verge
