We saw no other option but to use our bomb robot and place a device on its extension for it to detonate where the suspect was…other options would have exposed our officers to great danger,

“This algorithm uses a recurrent neural network to predict sound features from videos and then produces a waveform from these features with an example-based synthesis procedure. We show that the sounds predicted by our model are realistic enough to fool participants in a “real or fake” psychophysical experiment, and that they convey significant information about material properties and physical interactions.”

2001: A Picasso Odyssey - by Bhautik Joshi

‘2001’ rendered in the style of Picasso using Deep Neural Networks based style transfer.

The steering wheel becomes a skeuomorph. It becomes a surveillance device, registering pressure to tell whether you have both hands firmly on the wheel, or if you’ve fallen asleep or are in distress. It becomes an entertainment console. It transforms and retracts into the dash to signal when you’ve shifted between user-controlled and autonomous modes. Its familiar presence soothes you through the transition. Eventually, you forget it was ever there at all.

“Our algorithm uses linear programming to compute a virtual camera path that is optimised to recast videos and bursts as if they were filmed using stabilization equipment, yielding a still background or creating cinematic pans to remove shakiness.”

It’s fun, I use Rob’s patches in tracks, he uses mine, so we’re 50/50 on a track even if the other one weren’t there, because there’s a bunch of his decisions getting made during the track. With this kind of algorithmic music, because the algorithms are made by people, it is people music! You get that thing of, “Eww, it’s not human!” But that’s so far off how I think of it. I think of it as being more human, because there’s all these decisions in there, and they’re human decisions. They’re what people chose to do.

Method Design was tapped by production company RSA to concept and create this year’s AICP sponsor reel. The AICP awards celebrate global creativity within commercial production. Method Design wanted to create an entertaining piece of design that encapsulates the innovative and prolific nature of this industry. Our aim was to showcase the AICP sponsors as various dancing avatars which playfully reference the visual effects used throughout production. Motion capture, procedural animation and dynamic simulations combine to create a milieu of iconic pop dance moves that become an explosion of colorful fur, feathers, particles and more.

“We present a framework to synthesize character movements based on high level parameters, such that the produced movements respect the manifold of human motion, trained on a large motion capture dataset.

The learned motion manifold, which is represented by the hidden units of a convolutional autoencoder, represents motion data in sparse components which can be combined to produce a wide range of complex movements.”

The film Blade Runner (1982) reconstructed frame by frame using a type of artificial neural network called an autoencoder. This is a side by side comparison of the first 15 minutes with the original film.

See: A guy trained a machine to “watch” Blade Runner. Then things got seriously sci-fi.
