A computer program is turning New York into a beautiful oil painting

A team from University of Freiburg have developed and released an open source code that refers to a video manipulation technique called “neural style transfer.” It is a computer code that extracts the visual style of an image and applies it to video. Video artist 
Danil Krivoruchko and his team used this technique to create a mesmerising video of the landscape of New York City called NYC FLOW.
