I just found out about this new software... called DeOldify...

You can take old black and white images, or even video, and colorize it... for free...

It uses machine learning (that is, artificial intelligence) to figure it out...

I thought I'd try it!

I took this old black and white photo of Mary Astor that I found on Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Astor) - a Hollywood film star from the early days...

...and colorized it...

Here is the before and after!

P.S. I haven't tried video yet, but you can see examples on YouTube... Here's a half/half example of part of the silent film, "Metropolis"...

P.P.S. There are definitely business possibilities here...

Here's a 5-min tutorial if you want to try it out yourself...

P.P.P.S. For some reason, I was able to get it to work in Chrome, but not in Firefox...
