Researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences have created an artificial intelligence (AI) that can convert simple sketches of a face into photorealistic images, extrapolating from rough and even incomplete sketches.
The DeepFaceDrawing AI analyzes a drawing's details, then checks each individual feature separately against a database of facial features to construct its own image.
Said the researchers, "Our key idea is to implicitly model the shape space of plausible face images and synthesize a face image in this space to approximate an input sketch.
Our method essentially uses input sketches as soft constraints and is thus able to produce high-quality face images even from rough and/or incomplete sketches."
The researchers said the technology aims to help users with little drawing skill produce high-quality images.
