What's ha.ippening now?

Updated: Aug 28

With an ever-increasing flow of new applications for artificial intelligence we take a look at a couple of the recent releases to pique our interest.

Botnet - the social media platform that gets rid of your annoying aunt, and, also, every other person. The new people-free social media platform botnet allows users to buy bot audiences as they post into an ether of unreal users. The demand for such a service poses the question of what will count as a fulfilling interaction as tech continues to evolve. If artificial intelligence becomes as emotionally intelligent as humans, will the response from A.I and the response from a person provide the same validation?

Will neural networks of the future change the way we look at the past?

Several neural networks convert an old-timey, low framerate, black and white video from 1911 into 4K, 60fps, colourised.

This clip has been slowed down from its original rate of between 16-18 frames per second. It has also used A.I that has been trained on converting black and white images to colour ones. A lot of fit, overdressed people freaked out by the camera!
