A deep learning colouriser prototype

Wednesday, 13 February, 2019

“We used the popular fast.ai and PyTorch libraries to develop our model, with an architecture and training steps inspired by Jason Antic. We trained our model based on a new set of more than 500,000 old, publicly available Singapore based images that we compiled, using a local GPU cluster with NVIDIA V100 GPUs.”

So writes Preston Lim about a project of the Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Division of GovTech Singapore. If you want to “colourise your black and white photos,” this AI will do it. Rainy Day tried it and here are the results. Impressive, eh?
