Google shows off impressive AI zoom


With Generative Power of Tens, researchers demonstrate a method enabling “extreme semantic zooms” from wide-angle views to macro shots. Unlike traditional super-resolution methods, the team from the University of Washington, Google Research, and UC Berkeley uses text prompts for each scale, enabling deeper zoom levels. Compared to traditional outpainting techniques, the approach produces a consistent zoom in which the content of the coarser and finer zoom levels are consistent.
