NVIDIA’s AI is now able to generate countless realistic human faces, and you probably cannot tell if these faces are fake or real. Watch the video right after the break, and you will see what I mean. Basically, from the algorithm, the AI is able to morph a female face into a male face seamlessly. Look closely, you can tell the latter does resemble the former a bit, but you can also tell it’s indeed a male face and not a female face.
This technology can definitely fake an image, video, and whatnot of a real human being. With bad intention, someone could definitely frame a person in a sex scandal or whatnot. So, how can you be sure that what your eyes are seeing is actually a factual event?
A lot of videos on YouTube complain about how China’s bike sharing had become a problem since the sidewalks are littering with unused bikes. This gave me an idea, why not replicating China’s bike sharing problem into something good for car drivers! Imagine cars could be available everywhere so everyone can use their smartphone to unlock, pay, and drive away for a day. After a person is done with the car, he or she can just park the car in any parking lot nearby.
Of course, car sharing might come with more problems for the car operators/lenders than the car renters because cars are more expensive to maintain. Also, car operators need to make sure each car needs to be covered by insurance policy. This could also get rather expensive for the car operators. Nonetheless, if someone could use some good math skill or an artificial intelligence algorithm to figure out the bottom line, then I guess if the bottom line is good then there shouldn’t be a problem to allow car sharing en masse.
Just starting to play “Shadow of Tomb Raider” in 4K resolution, and I’m running this game with SLI GTX 1080 graphics cards set-up. In my opinion, even though I’m not running this game with RTX 2080 which got a ray tracing feature, the SLI GTX 1080 graphics cards set-up still makes this game looks so gorgeous. I’m not too picky when it comes to gameplay and whatnot as long the storyline/content isn’t too cheesy, and so far I’m enjoying the game. Check out the video above to see the quality of this game in 4K resolution. To be honest, I did use some magic with video editing software to make the color and the sharpness of the game pop out a little more than usual. Nonetheless, even without such magic the game should look gorgeous still in 4K. Still, I prefer my video to look as good as possible.
Felix Kunze suggests that you don’t need a complicated light set-up to get a professional soft-light portrait. I learned a lot by seeing Felix Kunze in action. I think it’s great of him to give out amazing tips on how to shoot soft-light portraits in a YouTube video.
Whenever I use Lightroom to retouch my photos, I usually go through a few familiar steps to remove fringe colors in my photos. In the video above I present a two-step process to let Lightroom automatically removes most if not all fringe colors in a photo.
A Chinese news agency Xinhua had just unleashed a world first news anchor AI presenter which based on a real human’s facial expressions. You could easily tell the speech is spoken by AI since the voice is quite digitized. Anyhow, I think they could as well make the voice seems more human-like if they choose.
I wonder if someone else out there is watching this video and has an idea that what if we could also get rid of real actors by using this technology, right? I think it’s possible in the future that we could use AI to replace real human actors! Nonetheless, I could also foresee the possibility of using this technology to fabricate and frame a good person in a scandal!
