DeepStereo: Learning to Predict New Views from the World’s Imagery

Computer vision research from Google uses deep network learning to convert series of images into smooth movement - think of it as possibly turning a collection of Street View images together to make a video (but not a hyperlapse):

Deep networks have recently enjoyed enormous success when applied to recognition and classification problems in computer vision, but their use in graphics problems has been limited. In this work, we present a novel deep architecture that performs new view synthesis directly from pixels, trained from a large number of posed image sets. In contrast to traditional approaches which consist of multiple complex stages of processing, each of which require careful tuning and can fail in unexpected ways, our system is trained end-to-end. The pixels from neighboring views of a scene are presented to the network which then directly produces the pixels of the unseen view … To our knowledge, our work is the first to apply deep learning to the problem of new view synthesis from sets of real-world, natural imagery.

Я был очень вдохновлён изображениями, которые генерирует алгоритм распознавания изображений от Google и попробовал нарисовать на их основе дизайн существа! Полноценно симулировать весь невероятный сюрреализм и абстрактность тех картинок у меня вышло не особенно хорошо, но сам по себе монстр, по-моему, всё равно вышел занятным :)

Peerio secure filesharing & messaging

“Secure message and file sharing for everyone. Work anywhere with our cloud. Keep your data safe with end-to-end encryption.”

this new browser based privacy app is built by the author of cryptocat the extremely popular private messaging webapp cryptocat,it is so far built for chrome and is completely opensource,it allows you to share files and message people securely on the fly and being browser based makes it easy to use if your using a computer that isn’t yours or is public.


How they describe their app “send messages, share files, and store documents online. With a familiar and intuitive interface, free cloud storage to remotely manage your files, and “always on” end-to-end encryption keeping your data private”. 

Usability “Select a contact, send a message. Drag-and-drop to share a file or store for later. Looking for something? Unlike past encryption solutions such as PGP, Peerio’s secure ecosystem let’s you search through your encrypted data. A single search helps you quickly look through your contacts, messages, and file”.

“implementation of eliptic curve cryptography (Curve25519) that radically simplifies key authentication while also improving speed and performance. Everything you do inside Peerio is encrypted quickly and seamlessly in the background, so you never have to worry about “turning on encryption” or wonder if your contact knows how to encrypt. Your data is secure by default, always.”
