Machine learning system brings still images to life by guessing what comes next

Whether it’s guessing which songs you want to listen to or which ads you should be shown, modern AI is increasingly focused on predicting the future. But there’s an enormous gulf between those kind of applications and looking at a scene and guessing what will happen next.That’s what researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have done, with a new paper revealing not just their ability to look at still images and guess what will happen next — something we’ve covered in the past — but to actually generate video of it. “What we’re interested in is teaching machines what can happen in a particular setting,” Carl Vondrick, a Ph.D. student in computer science, told Digital Trends. “For example, we wanted a machine to recognize what happens on a beach. We want it…
