Prisma converts photos into drawings, replicating the styles of famous artists, Aleksei Moiseenkov, General Director of Prisma Lab, which developed the program, told Sputnik.
Combining neural network technology and artificial intelligence, Prisma turns user photos into masterpieces of art.
According to the developers, they have created technology, which “redraws” user photos.
Prisma transforms photos into artworks using the styles of famous artists: Van Gogh, Picasso, Levitan, as well as world famous ornaments and patterns.
Images that “feed” the neural network remain on the server for some time to be able to further improve the algorithm. After processing, all photos are stored in encrypted form, and then removed.
Prisma was released in App Store on June 11, Moiseenkov, says, but it only became available for Russian users on June 16. In only three days the company registered 650,000 users.
The app is available to download for free.
The main advantage of Prisma is the speed of its image processing. Unlike competing services, forcing the user to wait for a few minutes, the new iOS-program dos everything extremely quickly. It sends its analysis into the cloud, and then returns the result directly to the iPhone.
The current version offers around 20 different styles. So far it is available on iTunes. Android users are going to have to wait until the beginning of July to get their hands on the new app!
