DeepFaceDrawing AI Sketches Portraits
A research team from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the City University of Hong Kong have unveiled DeepFaceDrawing, an AI-powered framework that turns sketches into photorealistic portraits. This deep learning system uses modules to generate the images, or in other words, it identifies the most notable facial features individually, like the eyes, nose, mouth, face shape, etc., before these vectors are merged to create realistic images.

CityHawk eVTOL Air Taxi
Urban Aeronautics has teamed up with HyPoint, a company that specializes in (HTPEM) hydrogen fuel cell systems, to develop the CityHawk eVTOL. It will be powered by HyPoint’s latest hydrogen fuel cell stack technology, replacing the previous hybrid propulsion system. This air taxi has a six-seat design with no external wings or rotors, making it perfect f or urban transport and emergency response.

Artificial Intelligence Computer Vision Blurry Face Clear PULSE
Duke University researchers have developed an artificial intelligence tool, called PULSE, that uses computer vision to transform blurry images of human faces into computer-generated portraits. Previous methods have yielded an image of a face that is up to eight times clearer than its original resolution, but this new tool is capable of 64-times the resolution. AI imagines features like fine lines, eyelashes and stubble that weren’t visible in the first place.
