    Freitag 0:21 Sean Hollister at The Verge – All Posts

Above and below, you can see how Microsoft disappears a dog’s leash and some unintentional photobombers using the power of generative AI: GIF: Microsoft Selectively removing people from the background of a photo. While that may not be quite as nifty a party trick as other AI fakery you’ve seen, you …
