A small 550 line program is used to upscale minecraft textures.
I really hope law enforcement doesn’t adopt this to produce TV like “enhance,” since it fabricates evidence, but I wouldn’t put it past them to try!
Oh wow, I didn’t even think of that as a possible application, but you are totally right, people could try and extrapolate fuzzy images/video into something more detailed.
Eww, that would really be bad, especially since there is a good chance it would add details that aren’t there…
Yeah. If you look at some of the early Deep Dream images, you might be able to see that a lot of what it’s doing is enhancing patterns that aren’t there. When a human brain does this, it’s called pareidolia; it isn’t paranoia by itself, but can be when a few other effects are added.
