Edges2Cats is an image-to-image tool which uses a neural network of stock images to turn line drawings into pictures of cats.


In February 2017, developer Christopher Hesse released several tools using the pix2pix image translator ported to the TensorFlow open-source software library.[1] Among the tools included edges2cats, which turns line drawings into cat photographs (shown below).

Online Presence

On February 21st, Twitter users began sharing screenshots of cat images made with the tool, many of which were accompanied by the hashtag "#edges2cats"[7] (shown below).
