Is it okay to use publicly available Instagram videos to train an AI?

Under US copyright law, this is probably fair use ...but beware of memorization. You may run into more trouble if the AI outputs things very similar to the original work. Also, consult a lawyer to ...

Image-in image-out neural network architectures

I think the second approach will be the best because it only requires that your training set is annotated with four labels for each of the four corners of the paper sheet. This is sort of the idea of ...

Does each filter in each convolution layer create a new image?

For a 3 channel image (RGB), each filter in a convolutional layer computes a feature map which is essentially a single channel image. Typically, 2D convolutional filters are used for multichannel ...

Does each filter in each convolution layer create a new image?

You are partially correct. On CNNs the output shape per layer is defined by the amount of filters used, and the application of the filters (dilation, stride, padding, etc.). CNNs shapes In your ...

Why is AI Super Resolution Reconstruction more than just guessing?

Yes, it's guessing. In the training phase, you show it lots of coarse and detailed pictures, and the algorithm learns a mapping from course to detailed. Then you present it a new coarse image, and it ...

What are some references that describe known filters (or kernels) and how we can create new ones?

I'd suggest you better understand edge detectors such as Robert or Sobel operators first to understand better how convolution operation on images extract features by constant value kernels. Would ...

Why do we get a three-dimensional output after a convolutional layer?

If you have a $h_i \times w_i \times d_i$ input, where $h_i, w_i$ and $d_i$ respectively refer to the height, width and depth of the input, then we usually apply $m$ $h_k \times w_k \times d_i$ ...
