Mission AI Possible: NVIDIA Researchers Stealing the Show

Roll out of bed, fire up the laptop, turn on the webcam — and look picture-perfect in every video call, with the help of AI developed by NVIDIA researchers.

NVIDIA Vid2Vid Cameo, one of the deep learning models behind the NVIDIA Maxine SDK for video conferencing, uses generative adversarial networks (known as GANs) to synthesize realistic talking-head videos using a single 2D image of a person.


Trail Blazing our Future with AI and NVIDIA Research

In this chapter of I AM AI, we explore how NVIDIA Researchers across the world are bettering our world by doing their life’s work in AI research. Get a glimpse of the passion, dedication and curiosity that drives these brilliant minds and see the breadth of how AI is advancing humanity.
