Wow. Pretty nerdy sounding, but this technology is quite impressive, and could be incredibly useful for aspect ratio conversion, object removal, rescaling, etc.
The object removal is very very impressive. I can think of a bunch of interesting uses for this, especially if you artificially mess with the weights for effect only. Id love to see this on a sequence of frames.
