Believe It Or Not, These ‘People’ You See Here Are Generated By AI

If you have not heard, we are now living in a world where what-you-see-may-not-be-what-you-get (WYSMNBWYG). Case-in-point: the photo you see here. The people you see in the above image are not real people. I repeat. They are NOT real people. They were generated by artificial intelligence, or in technical terms, generated by a Style-based Generator Architecture for Generative Adversarial Networks. How this creepy AI tech works is basically pulling the features of several human faces and fuse them together to create images of people who do not exists.

NVIDIA’s New Tech Slows Down Video Without Serious Loss Of Quality

What you see here is a video demonstration of Super SloMo: High Quality Estimation of Multiple Intermediate Frames for Video Interpolation. In layman terms, it means squeezing high-quality slow-motion videos from 30-frame-per-second videos – something which is not possible until today. If you have watched enough documentaries where often there are videos slowed down from normal speed video, the quality is often less than desirable.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Staked Claim As World’s Fastest Gaming GPU

Game graphics requirement and graphics card are like two knife-wielding person stabbing at each other. You never know which demands the bump in technology first; the game or the graphics card. That’s one mystery which I attribute to as the magic of supply and demand. Anyways, barely a year on since the introduction of NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce GTX “with shocking sticker,” the Santa Clara graphics card maker has unveiled its newest flagship, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, at the 2017 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

NVIDIA Unveils New Flagship GeForce GTX Graphics With Shocking Sticker

When you are promised with next-generation flagship graphics cards, you are likely to expect next-generation price points too (read: expensive), but it seems like that doesn’t applies to NVIDIA new flagships, the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. Announced on the day ahead of the largest BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) gaming events, DreamHack, happening at Austin Convention Center, the pair of graphics cards are obviously geared towards gamers and packs 8GB of next-generation GDDR5X graphics memory technology from Micron. There’s a catch here though; the next-gen memory is only found on the 1080 model and not the 1070. We are not surprised at all as there’s no reason for 1070 to outperform the one true flagship, right? Continue reading NVIDIA Unveils New Flagship GeForce GTX Graphics With Shocking Sticker

NVIDIA SHIELD Stakes Claim as the First 4K Android TV and it is Kind of Like a Game Console Too

It all started with SHIELD portable gaming system, then the SHIELD tablet, and now NVIDIA wants to own your living room too with a set-top box which it calls NVIDIA SHIELD.

It runs on Android TV and it is built to dominate your living in the aesthetic sense with its sleek, green accented black, ultra slim design.
