Neural networks can now help you colorize old photos like a pro

Colorization, or the process of adding color to monochrome photographs, is both art and science because it usually requires you to extrapolate hues for skin tone, clothing and physical objects. It also requires precision and practice to achieve good results. Now, newly trained neural networks are here to make it as easy as selecting colors from a palette. While previous efforts to automatically colorize photos have achieved some degree of success, they’re far from perfect – including this one called Algorithmia which can colorize pictures on demand (visit this page to try it with any photo). A group of researchers…
