When done right, slow-motion footage can be very dramatic and interesting to watch. It requires substantial processing power and large memories which are primarily found on high-end devices. However, according to a new report, Nvidia now has a new solution which can make it easier for smartphones of the future to capture slow-motion video; its solution involves the use of artificial intelligence.
NVIDIA’s AI is capable of converting 30 frames-per-second video into remarkable 240fps slow-motion footage. It does that by analyzing two different frames and creating intermediary footage which it achieves by tracking the movement of the objects in the footage from one frame to the next. NVIDIA says that it can produce up to seven intermediary frames which leads to accurate results.
However, the system does have some limitations. The AI first had to be trained so that it could work with certain types of footage so before it could create a convincing slow motion video of a car skidding through water, the AI first needed to be trained on the similar footage.
Although it is not ready for commercial launch, however, this is a great proof of concept from NVIDIA which shows that AI can play a major role in improving slow motion video capture on smartphones in the future.
You can watch the video below to see how interesting it really is for AI to create a convincing slow motion video.
