GTA 5 with a new level of realism thanks to a new neural network

The Intel ISL research group has unveiled the Photorealism Enhancement project, which aims to develop a new method for creating more realistic computer images using artificial intelligence. The work of this technology was demonstrated on the example of GTA 5.


The effect can be seen in the post below, as well as in the interactive comparison images available on the project website.


The method, developed by Intel ISL, analyzes each frame of the game's animation and makes it more realistic thanks to the so-called spotted network, which creates images from a database called Cityscapes, which contains many videos from car DVRs driving through German cities.

The technology works in a similar way to other artificial intelligence-based image enhancement methods - Photorealism Enhancement selects from a database a series of images that are most similar to the frame currently being processed and changes it so that it resembles the samples available to it.

Intel ISL claims the Photorealism Enhancement feature makes "asphalt smoother and car bodies shinier." The fact that the majority of Cityscapes filming takes place in Germany also explains the specific change in color palette - subtracting the California brown and orange (on which San Andreas is based) and adding green.


It's worth noting that the example provided by the developers is a bit blurry. It is also not the best quality, and the low frame rate affects. However, more detail can be seen in the static images.


Intel ISL representatives have not yet announced whether they will release this technology to the public in the future.
