Since the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI), we have seen the technology in use in almost every sector of the market. From aiding the military to controlling a full-fledged ship, companies have been using AI to its full potential in combination with existing tech. Now, two Indian developers have used the technology to build a tool that can convert any image or video into a cartoon.
Cartoonizer, developed by Tejas Mahajan and Niraj Pandkar, is essentially an AI tool that can convert any video or image into cartoons using an AI algorithm. The two Indian developers built the tool using a research paper by researchers from the Tokyo University, Xinrui Wang and Jinze Yu. They have also used the open-source official implementation of the paper by the authors from Github by giving them appropriate credit for their work.
To test out the tool, one of the developers of “Cartoonizer”, Niraj Pandkar, took some videos and turned them into an animated version of themselves. One of the videos is a 4-minute scene from Marvel’s Avengers movie, which you can check out right below.
