Watch Scenes from Belle Époque Paris Vividly Restored with Artificial Intelligence (Circa 1890)

In his latest act of digital restoration, Denis Shiryaev has used AI to revive and colorize footage documenting daily life in Paris during the 1890s. The remarkably clear footage lets you see horses and buggies move past Notre Dame; youngsters floating their boats at Luxembourg Gardens; the Eiffel Tour during its first decade of existence; firemen dashing down the city's grands boulevards; and people hopping onto futuristic moving sidewalks. Quite a delight to see.
