I've read the paper A Neural Algorithm of Artistic Style by Gatys et. al. and I find the application of neural style transfer very fun.
I also read that Exploring the structure of a real-time, arbitrary neuralartistic stylization network by Ghiasi et. al. is a more modern approach to NST.
My question is whether the above paper by Ghiasi et. al. is still the state-of-the-art method in NST, or maybe new algorithms perform even more efficiently.
I shall precise that my goal is to deploy some NST algorithm on a web page as a fun project to apply some deep learning and learn about backend-frontend interactions.
