The recent improvement of know-how has made it attainable for us to live in ways that have never been attainable before. Even with the potential penalties, a world with out technology can be a primitive and possibly a sad one. People could not presumably maintain the current inhabitants levels without current know-how, nor might we preserve any form of economic progress. Alternatively, the future appears to be an interesting one. New applied sciences emerge on a regular basis that can help to enhance our quality of life. Furthermore, new developments in cognitive science, nano-know-how, and virtual reality may sooner or later allow us to transcend what it means to be human in the present day. Sooner or later, individuals may turn out to be immortal or live their lives utterly in a virtual world. The possibilities that humans might have sooner or later are unknown, however expertise will at all …
Companies generally spend quite a lot of time and resources in developing and training AI models. We’ve seen AI used in all kinds of ways, such as detecting diseases in humans that doctors might have otherwise missed, but the folks over at Imgflip have come up with a rather novel use of the technology, which is to create memes.…
Memes have been around for a long time now and they’re more often than not generated by humans. However, by training AI to recognize and understand memes, ImgFlip is trying to see if AI can be applied to memes to generate their own, which you can find on ImgFlip’s website where there are a bunch of selected memes that will randomly generate text it thinks is appropriate to the meme.
According to Imgflip, “These captions are generated by a deep artificial neural network. Nothing about the text generation is hardcoded,
Admittedly, it’s a very dim image. If there’s any other light leaking into your device, you won’t even be able to see the image. Why is it so dim? Because the hole is so tiny—only a little bit of light from the person makes it to the screen.
Couldn’t you just use a bigger hole? Yes, but the image would be blurry. To see why, look back at the diagram with the LEDs shining through the two holes: The bigger hole made a bigger spot. If you had a human who was made of 100 colored LEDs (which would be both weird and cool) going through one big hole, there would be 100 big spots on the screen, all overlapping with one another. The tiny pinhole projects tiny spots, so we get a higher-resolution image.
Now, a question: What’s the difference between a pinhole and the lens in a modern
Over the years, Apple has steadily increased the price of its iPhones to levels where some people are starting to feel it’s quite ridiculous. However, there is some good news because according to a tweet by Jon Prosser of FrontpageTech, he claims that the iPhone 12 could be priced somewhat affordably.
The tweet claims that the iPhone 12 could be priced starting at $649. However, there is a catch. The tweet suggests that there could be four iPhone 12 models launching this year, and that the base model will not necessarily be a direct successor to the iPhone 11. Instead, it will be a smaller version with a 5.4-inch display.
This could be the reason behind the slightly lower price, where it is $50 cheaper than the current iPhone 11. Prosser’s tweet goes on to reveal the other prices of the iPhones, where the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will be priced
Koalas lick tree trunks to quench their thirst when it rains, scientists just learned. It upends what biologists long thought about koalas: that they get almost all the water they need from the eucalyptus leaves they eat.
But koalas probably lap up water like many animals — except they do so from trees, according to the findings published today in the journal Ethology. With fires, heat waves, and droughts putting more and more stress on the critters, scientists have been paying close attention to how koalas are keeping hydrated.
“This significantly alters our understanding of how koalas gain water in the wild. It is very exciting,” lead author of the Ethology paper and University of Sydney researcher Valentina Mella said in a statement.
The surprising discovery was made by enlisting the help of citizen scientists and independent ecologists who had observed the koalas’ behavior in
