The SignalPop AI Designer and the MyCaffe AI Platform‘s implementation of Neural Style Transfer and the VGG model are now used to create large sized artistic prints – some as large as a ping-pong table! Creating these prints can run up to 2 trillion calculations and requires nearly all of the 50GB of video memory offered by the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000 GPU.
The print of Trevor Kennison was a collaborative effort between former US Ski Team photographer Jonathan Selkowitz, artist Noemí Ibarz of Barcelona, Spain and Signalpop who provided the artificial intelligence software, including both the SignalPop AI Designer and MyCaffe AI Platform.
Artificial intelligence helps bring together the creative talents of both the photographer and artist to create a new, collaborative piece of work!
A closer view of the print shows how the AI actually learns Noemí’s artistic style and paints Jonathan’s picture of Trevor with it to create a fantastic, new piece of art!
The neural style transfer, learns not only the colors of Noemí’s art, but also the brush strokes and even the texture of the medium on which her art was painted.

In an effort to help the High Fives Foundation (who helped Trevor get his jump back) we are auctioning off this print.
