The researchers of Meta (formerly Facebook) have developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system that can identify and automatically animate the humanlike characters (i.e., a character with two arms, two legs, ahead, etc.) in children’s drawings with a high success rate, and without any human guidance.
Parents can now upload drawings to Meta’s prototype system and children can watch their drawings become moving characters that dance, skip and jump.
Meta on its blog said that Parents can even download a video of their animated drawings to share with friends and family. Parents can also opt in to have their child’s drawing used to continue to teach the AI model,
Meta said in a message on their blog that our goal was to build an AI system that can identify and automatically animate the humanlike figures in children’s drawings with a high success rate and without any human guidance.
Meta hopes to get closer to developing AI that can understand the world from a human point of view. We invite you to test out the systems’ animation capabilities by uploading your children’s drawings to our prototype. In the coming year, we also hope to release the data set and share more details on our research.
