Image Colorizer

Get this modelTry the API


This model is a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) that was trained by the IBM CODAIT Team on COCO dataset images converted to grayscale and produces colored images. The input to the model is a grayscale image (jpeg or png), and the output is a colored 256 by 256 image (increased resolution will be added in future releases). The model is based on Christopher Hesse’s Tensorflow implementation of the pix2pix model.
