Researchers at NVIDIA have developed new AI technology that can turn standard 30fps video into slow-motion video equivalent to that shot at 240fps.
The company released a new research paper and video demonstrating the technology. To achieve the effect, NVIDIA trained its AI with more than 11,000 videos showing slow-motion footage from sports and everyday life.
Based on these slow-motion sequences, the AI learned how to predict the extra frames needed to slow down the video.
“While it is possible to take 240-frame-per-second videos with a cell phone, recording everything at high frame rates is impractical, as it requires large memories and is power-intensive for mobile devices,” the research team wrote.
“Our method can generate multiple intermediate frames that are spatially and temporally coherent.
“Our multi-frame approach consistently outperforms state-of-the-art single frame methods.”
