B&W photos meet AI and gain color

Our First Reddit Bot - Coloring B&W Photos Using AI Deep Neural Network Machine

A nifty article on using machine artificial intelligence and "deep neural networks" to colorize black and white photos. I understood some of the simpler words, but the output is pretty amazing. The pics above are the original color photo, a B&W version, and a recolored version done with the AI.
Links to code for those of a computery bent. Maybe a way to colorize great grammy's pic from long ago.

It's OK, but I like to see some photos with people and skin tones. Or cityscapes with more architectural details. Too lazy to find a photo to check this out, so perhaps someone else will volunteer.

PS. I take it back. The linked article has other sample photos.
