Chris Marquardt ... Into the Future

Episode 1581 (56:30)

Chris Marquardt

Chris says there's a new kind of photography called "Generational Photography" where you can generate photos of people who don't exist and they look realistic. It's done with artificial intelligence and was developed by NVIDIA. Chris says it looks pretty good and it's bound to get even better as time goes on, NVIDIA has also created a technique that lets you create photos of places that don't exist simply by sketching out a basic image. And that could put stock photographers out of business. 

All this is posing the question ... what is the role of the artist with a camera in the future?

Don't forget our current assignment - APPLE (literally, not figuratively). Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "APPLE" and then post it to the <a href="http://www.flickr.com/groups/techguy/">Tech Guy Group on Flickr</a>. Make sure to tag it with the word "APPLE" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
