Artificial Arts: Turn Photos into Art with Machine Learning

Date: April 29th, 2021 at 11:00 am PST

Find out how Akvelon is leveraging machine learning to turn photos into works of art with our AI ArtDive (previous Deep Art) platform!

In our webinar, we provide a live demo of AI ArtDive (previous Deep Art) and discuss the development of the machine learning algorithms that power our smart filters. Our AI ArtDive (previous Deep Art) platform has 15 unique filters that transform photos to appear like they came straight out of a retro video game, a Vincent van Gogh painting, a beautiful watercolor canvas, or other artworks.
