Facebook is developing a new, machine learning powered system that would enable users to re-create the style of text in virtually any photo using just a single word example, which could lead to new developments in translation, editing, replication, etc.

As explained by Facebook:

“Unlike most AI systems that can do this for well-defined, specialized tasks, TextStyleBrush is the first self-supervised AI model that replaces text in images of both handwriting and scenes – in one shot – using a single example word.”
