With a little help from AI, you can now create a Bob Ross-style landscape in seconds. In March, researchers from NVIDIA unveiled GauGAN, a system that uses AI to transform images scribbled onto a Microsoft Paint-like canvas into photorealistic landscapes -- just choose a label such as "water," "tree," or "mountain" the same way you'd normally choose a color, and the AI takes care of the rest. At the time, they described GauGAN as a "smart paintbrush" -- and now, they've released an online beta demo so you can try it out for yourself. The level of detail included in NVIDIA's system is remarkable. Draw a vertical line with a circle at the top using the "tree" label, for example, and the AI knows to make the bottom part the trunk and the top part the leaves.
