Directions & Details

This Hotpot AI service analyzes black and white pictures and turns them into realistic color photos. To do this, we built off the wonderful DeOldify project and applied proprietary advancements based on the latest techniques in deep learning, a subfield of machine learning.

The outcome is a sophisticated prediction about the colors of the people and objects in a picture, but like any prediction, it could be wrong or biased. For instance, our AI might colorize a shirt blue when it was actually red.

For best results, please use black and white pictures without scratches or other blemishes that may confuse our very earnest, but unfortunately limited, AI. We are actively exploring methods to colorize pictures in a more accurate and lifelike fashion.


Help improve our AI by sharing images that convert poorly.
