NVIDIA Announces AI for Rendering

There is a lot of amazing advancements in the world of rendering. One worthy of a quick post is the NVIDIA announcement, last week at their GPU Technology Conference in Silicon Valley, by CEO and founder Jensen Huang. They have incorporated Artificial Intelligence (AI) to the rendering process... which "predicts the final images from only partly finished results".

They say this can be applied to many different rendering engines. They have already incorporated it into iRay.

The article gets into some cool details about how they trained the AI.

Super cool and scary at the same time:)

BTW, I did not get to attend this conference, but I know BILT Committee member Nicholas Kramer was there, so I look forward to hearing what he thought of this announcement and the conference in general!
