I cannot find a proper rule for it, but here are a couple of links supporting my point: https://www.englishforums.com/English/TensesAfterWouldThoughtAlwaysPast/pjcdn/post.htm and https://dictionary.cambridge.org/grammar/british-grammar/past-verb-forms-referring-to-the-present
He thought that the answer was correct.
Same for would have thought.
He would have thought that the answer was correct.
I would not use is in either case.I am sure that links supporting your point can be easily found as well Actually, the first link suggests that both forms are possible. So, I accept your correction of my correction.Sometimes we use past verb forms to refer to things which were true or which happened in the past, even when they are still true now:
That woman at the party last night was German.
He went for an interview for the airforce the other day but he didn’t get in because his eyesight wasn’t good enough.

Just for the record: I know it is "It's" and not Its. I must have not paid any attention when Microsoft Edge tried to tell me that it was wrong, ha ha.
"Programmers are human-shaped machines that transform alcohol into bugs."
"Had I not pooped on the floor last night, I would find it smelled better today."
How does that teen filter handle hair? Because my mane isn't teen for sure (ye older distinguished colors), not to mentioned my bald friends. Google has no results, so guessing it's not quite that impressive.
The "teen filter" is mostly about removing lines, so lots of blurring. Not really AI.
Adding my 2 cents: I have tried pretty much all AI video upscale softwares that are on the market now from AE, DaVinci, AVC, ToolFarm, Runway, Topaz, and simply said - they will not get there.
The main reason is that all of these softwares are trained on digital videos, not on analog videos. I see these tutorials for upscaling when the company takes 4K video, they downsize it to 360p (naturally at very high bitrate without any compression artifacts) and then they "magically" upscale it back to 4k. And it works. but the main issue is input. If you have SD video it perfect quality, then you can already upscale it to HD with nowadays tools - whether the video is digital or analog.
However, they dont train these AI softwares on analog videos. When you try to upscale analog video that has compression, interlacing, chroma misalignment, halos, ghosting, artifacts, flickering, etc, AI tool will think it is an actual image and will upscale/enhance all those artifacts as well and you will get hot mess in return.
AI-wise, i think we could develop tool that would automate all AviSynth+ filters and then upscale, but it would have to be trained purely on analog videos which means thousands of hours of training, code writing and money investing... And no company will spend that much money nowadays. Fireworkz has good restoration softwares and they will soon introduce AI tools too, so they might be the only company who might be actually investing money and developing something to treat analog videos, but besides that, all the AI video companies are focusing on digital videos upscaling. Occasionally, they introduce "deinterlacing" options, but those don't work and it is simply better to interlace video yourself and then upscale final progressive video...
