An AI That Makes Fake Videos May Facilitate the End of 'Reality' as We Know It
In October, Nvidia demonstrated the ability of one of their AIs to generate disturbingly realistic images of completely fake people. Now, the tech company has produced one that can generate fake videos. The AI does a surprisingly decent job of changing day into night, winter into summer, and house cats into cheetahs (and vice versa). Best (or worst?) of all, the AI does it all with much less training than existing systems.

Flat-Earth: Finding the curvature of the Earth
With the help of a simulation, I show, up to what altitudes the earth appears flat, although it actually has a spherical shape. Using some animations, you can learn how to recognize the curvature of the earth, or in what circumstances it appears flat. The simulation can also simulate refraction. I prove by means of photos, how the simulation depicts reality, by superimposing the simulation results onto photos.
