Blade Runner - Autoencoded: trailer - side by side comparison

Description:

The film Blade Runner (1982) reconstructed frame by frame using a type of artificial neural network called an autoencoder. This is a side by side comparison of the first 15 minuites with the original film.

The autoencoder was trained to reconstruct the individual frames from the film using the learned similarity architecture proposed by Larsen et al. http://arxiv.org/abs/1512.09300.

After being trained on the whole film for 6 epochs, each frame was then reconstructed using the autoencoder and resequenced into a video.

The Blade Runner film, "Blade Runner" trademark, and many of the sounds, images and movie clips are Copyright © 1982, 1991 by the Blade Runner Partnership and/or The Ladd Company.
