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 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!
In the video right after the break, the video suggests China is planning a mission for Mars in 2020. I assume they’re planning to send taikonauts to Mars in 2020 since the video is about how they had built a Mars simulation base for taikonauts on earth. I think this is amazing! Sending humans to Mars would be a new next biggest achievement for humans outside of earth! I can’t wait to see this happens in 2020!
We all know that securing an account with just a password isn’t as secure as it used to be. Nowadays, you may also be asked for a second authentication code before you could access an account. Nonetheless, the second authentication protocol could be breached by a sophisticated hack. To protect the second authentication protocol better, you now can purchase a physical security key to harden the second authentication protocol. This means without a physical key, the hacker would have a very hard time trying to access your account. For an example, they could hack the service which hosts your account to have an access to your account, but this could also be hard for the hacker if the service is well protected. Anyway, check out the video right after the break to see a physical security key in action.
Some supercars of today cost more than a couple cool million dollars to own, but how comfortable could you be in such cars when you got a Volvo 360c? Unfortunately, this is only a concept so far, I think! Nonetheless, I hope something like this could come sooner rather than later! After all, I hate driving between states and prefer playing video games, watching movies, and listening to music while on move. Often time I could find myself preferring to sleep than drive while on the move from one point to another point. At the moment, driving means seriously limiting yourself while on the move. Your eyes gotta be on the road 99.9% of the time to avoid any serious but avoidable accident so you could make to your destination safely! I think something like Volvo 360c could definitely allow me to avert my eyes away from the traffic and allow me to concentrate on something else that I could enjoy while on the go. Check out the video right after the break to see how cool a Volvo 360c could be!
