MIT's AI that Deletes

Deep Angel



Part Art, Tech & Philosophy

MIT's Media Lab has created artificial intelligence that deletes.  It's called Deep Angel.  It erases objects from photographs.  MIT says it's part art, part technology and part Philosophy.

Disappearing Act

With this new artificial intelligence, you can explore the future of automated media manipulation by uploading your own photo or submitting a public Instagram account to the AI. As you can see in the photo, Deep Angel disappears things from  images.  It also detects fakes.

Aesthetics of Absence

To quote MIT:  "Beyond manipulation Deep Angel enables you to uncover the aesthetics of absence.  What happens when we can remove things from the world around us?"  Intriguing AI and a unique vision of the future.
