Gamer assembled a gaming PC in the toilet (video)
Probably, this is the first toilet in the world, which, in addition to its main purpose, is able to run computer games without any problems. An enthusiast wanted to create a system that would allow him to play shooters with a mouse and keyboard while sitting on the toilet.
Meat 3D printing technology created in Russia
If you feel sorry for the animals, but want meat, then the Moscow State University of Food Production (MGUPP) has a solution for you – they have developed a 3D meat printing technology.
Russian satellites “Ionosphere” will go into space in 2023 (2 photos)
The launch of the first satellites into orbit within the framework of the Ionosonde project is scheduled for next year. This is stated on the pages of the magazine “Russian Space”, published by the state corporation “Roscosmos”.
Nothing Phone 1 tested for strength (video)
Yesterday, the Nothing Phone 1 smartphone was disassembled and tested for maintainability, and today it was tested for strength when dropped from a great height. Read more
What the new Russian orbital station will look like (5 photos)
General Designer of RSC Energia im. S.P. Koroleva Vladimir Alekseevich Solovyov in an interview with the Russian Space magazine revealed some details about the future Russian orbital service station. Thanks to the release of the magazine, you can view the station in detail, including individual service modules.
Non-convulsive epileptic seizures can happen unexpectedly, so scientists are looking for ways to best predict them. Researchers from St. Petersburg State University have made great progress in this – they have developed a neural network to detect such seizures, based on electroencephalography (EEG) data.
An unusual study by a group of scientists from the French Institute of Neurology (NYU) in Langone, made it possible to record the sounds of the vital activity of brain neurons and create a piece of music based on them. An original approach to the study of the human brain will allow neuroscientists to better understand the mechanisms of the brain, provide new information for developers of the brain-computer interface and expand the knowledge base about the neuropsychiatric state of patients with autism.
Looking at static photographs, one cannot get a comprehensive idea of the captured person. The company MyHeritage tried to improve the situation, already using artificial intelligence to automatically improve the quality of images. As a result, the application Deep Nostalgia (deep nostalgia) was created, which analyzes the facial expressions of the photographed person and creates a short video.
Movie footage in which forensics use blurry images from CCTV cameras to create a clear photographic portrait of a criminal does not always correspond to reality. However, the advent of new technology with the Local Latent Image Volumetric Reconstruction (LIIF) function will provide professionals with the opportunity to increase the quality of digital photographs indefinitely.
Recently, representatives of art, designers and filmmakers are increasingly using the possibilities of artificial intelligence. Technologies transform film frames from the past into 4K video, and the heroes of works of art “come to life” and appear before us in their original form.
Modern companies are actively using applications on the Internet to identify users by face, which allows them to form huge databases and actually violate confidentiality. Counteracting such systems based on neural networks can be an application created at the University of Chicago, which allows you to avoid identification by photography and disrupt the algorithms of programs like Clearview AI.
Trump’s $15 billion physical “wall” will be reinforced in the coming years with artificial intelligence to ensure timely detection of illegal migrants, drug traffickers and smugglers. The Trump administration is awarding California startup Anduril Industries a five-year contract to build a network of hundreds of solar-powered mobile towers that can distinguish between animals, people, and vehicles while sending their location information directly to the mobile phones of U.S. border patrol officers.
Studying the mechanism of the brain’s response to dying neurons will help in uncovering the secrets of the aging process and increase the efficiency of recovery after neurological diseases. Scientists at the Yale School of Medicine have begun to study the complex interactions between dying neurons and glial cells in the central nervous system, which are responsible for removing dead cells and other biodebris from the brain. The whole process was filmed on video.
Artificial intelligence is actively helping humanity to get acquainted with its past. Enthusiasts, artists and scientists have recently restored portraits of prominent personalities using neural networks, modeled the image of a man from the Stone Age and demonstrated a possible appearance of the Statue of Liberty “revived”. Another option for using high technology was the restoration by the artist Matt Laffrey using the power of neural networks of the video fragment of the William Cody show, nicknamed “Buffalo Bill” with the leader of the Oglala-Lakota tribe (a group of Sioux tribes) nicknamed “Iron Tail”.
Modern networks are actively used in the processing of human images. Recently, data on the “revitalization” of artificial intelligence were made public a portrait of Mona Lisa and other artistic images, and now comes a message from scientists from Duke University in North Carolina about new successes AI in photo processing. Scientists were able to translate into reality the procedure for “transforming” a blurry photograph of a person into a clear photograph. Such a technique can often be seen in films, when investigators identify criminals using the frames of a fuzzy, magnified many times over video.
