In today’s day and age, with the regular introduction of newer technology or base models have resulted in very much intriguing and helpful innovations. Speaking of innovations, Nvidia has developed an AI choreographer based on deep learning that can choreograph your next dance video.
This new deep learning-based module is called Nvidia is titled as the AI Choreographer, and it was introduced in Neural Information Processing Systems Conference 2019 in Vancouver, Canada. The development of this module was only possible because of the combined efforts done by Nvidia and the University of California, Merced.
Talking more about the AI Choreographer in brief, as its name, this tool can choreograph a dance video with the help of its AI capabilities. The proper detection of the beat and song texture for choreography is challenging in the tool as it depends upon the calculation of variables. Apart from the calculations, there is an interconnection of three major dance types – Zumba, Hip-Hop, and Ballet, and There are a total of 3,61,000 types of these dance videos.
The collection of all of these different clips that are approximately 71 hours of dancing footage of different dance forms is there to train the Generative Adversarial Network (GAN). The work of GAN is to educate itself, how to put a correct routine or choreography for the music provided.
Now at the initial stage of the tool’s working, pose processing that is completed by OpenPose. It helped in detecting the movements and posture of humans in real-time and was developed by Carnegie Mellon University. For increasing the efficiency and speed of their AI choreographer, Nvidia and Merced used Nvidia’s v100 GPUs and a deep learning framework called PyTorch.
At the ending of the process, the deep learning module uses the same Nvidia’s v100 GPUs for all of its future projects and work. With each passing day, Artificial intelligence or AI has played a vital role in the innovation, whether it be technology on a smartphone, camera, or machine. As of now, we are writing this article, AI has become more important for our daily life than you have ever imagined. Whether it be medical science, Industry, gaming, or even banking or financial system, AI is used everywhere.
Nvidia is going great in terms of the betterment of Artificial intelligence as it is collaborating and integrating with younger generations in universities. Youngsters have a competent mind, and by working with the American technology company, they are unveiling astounding results like this.
