Fill in the Blank

Carnegie Mellon researchers have developed an algorithm capable of filling arbitrarily-sized holes of photographs by finding similar regions in a database of a million pictures. A pretty interesting application of computer vision and AI if you ask me. As for practical uses of this specific implementation are concerned, I’d imagine it could be used to remove unwanted ex-boyfriends, politically undesireable items, and “that guy” from photos the world over.
