CNET: Google AI now can give YouTube videos a wacky background. “Google… trained a neural network with lots of carefully labeled imagery that helped it learn how to distinguish facial features — eyes, hair, glasses, mouths and so on — from everything else. The result is a system that can swap out backgrounds fast enough to keep up with video. Digital video frames whip by at 30 frames per second, but Google’s technology works at 40 frames per second on a Google Pixel 2 phone and more than 100 frames per second on an Apple iPhone 7.”
