Man, I’m not even the first to imagine a tripping-out Content-Aware Phil…
…cue the vemödalen. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Anyway, “Large Scale Image Completion via Co-Modulated Generative Adversarial Networks” (and you thought “Content-Aware Fill” was a mouthful), which you can try out right in your browser, promises next-level abilities to fill in gaps by using GANs that understand specific domains like human faces & landscapes.
I’m not sure whether the demo animation does the idea justice, as you might reasonably think “Why would I want to scarify a face & then make a computer fill in the gaps?,” but the underlying idea (that the computer can smartly fill holes based on understanding the real-world structure of a scene) seems super compelling.
