Researchers create AI that makes blurry faces look more than 60 times sharper

Team Udayavani, Jun 15, 2020, 6:14 PM IST

Researchers have created an artificial intelligence (AI) tool, which they claim turns blurry photos into computer-generated faces in HD

Researchers from Duke University have created a tool that can make blurry faces in photos look 64 times sharper

The method, called PULSE, searches through AI-generated examples of high-resolution faces to match ones that look similar to the input image when compressed to the same size.

Sachit Menon from the Duke University in the US, said. “While the researchers focused on faces as a proof of concept, the same technique could, in theory, take low-resolution shots of almost anything and create sharp, realistic-looking pictures, with applications ranging from medicine and microscopy to astronomy and satellite imagery”

The team also claims that it can even ‘imagine’ new features that were imperceptible in the original, such as wrinkles, eyelashes.

However, researchers say,  It won’t turn an out-of-focus, unrecognizable photo from a security camera into a crystal clear image of a real person, rather, it is capable of generating new faces that don’t exist, but look plausibly real.
