Facebook Now Lets You Turn Any 2D Photo into a 3D Image Using AI

Facebook just expanded 3D photo posting to phones that don't actually capture depth data. Using the magic of machine learning (i.e. artificial intelligence), Facebook taught a neural network how to "infer 3D structures from 2D photos," even if those photos were taken with a single lens camera.
