Jiahui recently interned at Adobe and presented his work at the Adobe MAX annual event. He developed "project DeepFill," an image hole-filling technology. It can be used to remove distracting objects, or retouch undesired regions in images to make them nicer. It is based on deep generative neural networks and trained on millions of images.
