NVIDIA's AI-based GAUGAN 2 tool generates Van Goghesque landscapes from words and phrases you input

NVIDIA recently rolled out a demo of GAUGAN 2, an AI-based text to image platform. GAUGAN 2 has been trained on images of buildings, plants, and other objects, and will output images of what it thinks input text represents. The results aren't always accurate, but are stunningly beautiful on occasion.

NVIDIA recently rolled out a demo of GAUGAN 2, an artificial intelligence-based text to image creation tool. GAUGAN 2 takes keywords and phrases you type in as input, and then generates unique images based on them.

In NVIDIA's demo video, a user inputs "mountains by a lake" and GAUGAN 2 spits out a beautiful alpine landscape with a small lake in the foreground. We tried using GAUGAN 2 and, in practice, things aren't as smooth as the demo implies. Certain keywords resulted in bizarre, terrifying results. GAUGAN 2 used this author's name, for instance, to output an image of what looked like fungi on legs, walking down a street. 

GAUGAN 2 is early in development at this point, and likely been trained only on a rather limited data set. Regardless, when it works, it offers a breathtaking snapshot of how AI technology could transform asset creation in movies in games in the years to come, with unique photorealistic landscapes and objects generated from just a few words of user input.
