Adapting to Limits
One of the potential breakthroughs of generative AI may be adapting video to look better on the same hardware. Video itself is a mind trick — it’s just still images passed before our eyes in quick succession. What if each frame could be slightly manipulated to create better transitions for a given frame rate? What about generated images from originals to create less blur? It’s likely we’ll see some breakthroughs from AI not only for generating new video but enhancing video for better playback performance.
The same will likely occur across other areas such as software development. We may see code being rewritten by generative AI to run better with less processing speed or memory. Or, we may see the format of outputs change to deliver the same quality of content. Likewise, generative AI applied to cryptography might end up creating better encryption at a lower cost.
While slam poetry and writing a story in iambic pentameter alphabetically is cool, the real applications of generative AI are ahead of us to optimizing resources.
