Facebook TextStyleBrush AI for transferring images to text


Researchers Facebook introduced a new self-monitoring AI model, the “TextStyleBrush" in the Newsroom. Using an image of a word, it can edit and replace the text by copying the font or visual style in which it was written.

The tool works both in handwritten text and in real words. This is something very impressive, because - as it states Facebook - AI must understand "unlimited" text styles.

You know that there are different types of calligraphy, but also many stylistic details that must be taken into account. What if someone writes in italics or curves? Or if the surface on which the text is located makes it difficult to read? What about background clutter or image noise?

The Facebook explained that the model TextStyleBrush works similar to how style tools work in word processors, but for text-to-image aesthetics:

It exceeds the last word of accuracy in both automated tests and user studies for any type of text. (…) We use a more holistic approach to education and disconnect the content of a text image from all aspects of its appearance throughout the word frame. The representation of the overall look can then be applied as a monochrome metaphor.

The Google Translate mobile application has a function similar to its new AI application Facebook, as it replaces text, but aims to solve a different problem, translating the text into a different language.
