“Obviously Nvidia cares a lot about generating graphics [and] we’re thinking about how AI is going to revolutionize the field.”
Nvidia has introduced a number of innovations, and one product of this work, it says, is the first ever video game demo with AI-generated graphics.
Nvidia’s system generates graphics using a few steps.
Using this environment as a framework, deep learning algorithms then generate the graphics for each different category of item in real time, pasting them on to the game engine’s models.
“The structure of the world is being created traditionally,” explains Catanzaro, “The only thing the AI generates is the graphics.” He adds that the demo itself is basic, and was put together by a single engineer.
This technology could be used in a hybrid graphics system, where the majority of a game is rendered using traditional methods, but AI is used to create the likenesses of people or objects.
So would an AI revolution in computer graphics be good for the company’s revenue? It certainly wouldn’t hurt, Catanzaro laughs.
