Footage of 1911 New York City is colourized by Artificial Intelligence a few car pictures


Recommended Posts

Incredible footage of 1911 New York City is colorized by artificial intelligence in high resolution

  • A YouTuber has restored a video of New York City shot in 1911 by a  Swedish film production company
  • Denis Shiryaev posted the new video on his site which is now in 4K quality at 60 frames per second
  • He used neural networks to make the video sharper and easier to watch, in order to make it more realistic 
  • The video shows footage of the Statue of Liberty, Battery Park, the New York Harbor and the Flatiron Building  

 

The streets in 1911 were lined with trolley tracks and were mostly bustling with buggies, but a few cars were used on the roads by the upper class

 

 

The 1911 video entitled 'A Trip Through New York City' has been brought back to life more than a hundred years later by artificial intelligence. This 'upscaled' footage was created using neural network-powered algorithms such as Topaz Labs' Gigapixel AI and DAIN

Very Cool!!  Interested that there were few cars in New York. There is a 1906 video taken in San Fran just before the earth quake from a cable car on Market Street. A lot more cars and the people and wagons were driving and walking on both sides of the road. It appears in New York by 1911, at least the cars were staying on the right side of the road but the people were darting across the street wherever they felt like it.
