AI generates infinite number of photorealistic scenes

Could be a boon to game and VR developers.

Jon Peddie

Princeton University researchers have created an open-source software system called Infinigen, aimed at enhancing the training of computer vision systems by rapidly generating an unlimited number of photorealistic scenes from the natural world. Infinigen employs randomized mathematical rules to generate realistic three-dimensional objects and synthetic representations of natural phenomena. Through a programmatically generated process, each image is constructed by creating a virtual world, populating it with digital objects, and enabling automatic labeling. This capability allows computer vision systems to recognize and locate objects based solely on image input. In addition to computer vision training, Infinigen is expected to find utility
