Google AI Can Create Short Video Clips From Two Still Images

Google AI Can Create Short Video Clips from 2 images

Researchers develop a fully-convolutional deep network to extrapolate view beyond two input images.  They used a layered representation to show hidden surfaces of input images and predict output views.  The system can handle both indoor and outdoor pictures.  Over the past decade, photography has changed a lot and this change has been driven by smartphones’ better hardware ...

Photonic Fibers Change Color When Stretched | To Show Pressure Level

photonic-fiber-stretch

The new photonic fiber could serve as a continuous pressure sensor.   It’s fabricated from thin layers of transparent stretchable materials. These multiple layers reflect light, producing different colors.  It could be used in compression bandage to monitor pressure levels.  Compression therapy is used to increase blood flow activity in the lower limbs by gently applying pressure ...

The First Simulation of Atomic Nucleus On a Quantum Computer

Simulation of Atomic Nucleus - deuteron

For the first time, nuclear physicists simulated an atomic nucleus on a quantum computer.  They developed the code to execute simulation on Rigetti 19Q and IBM QX5 quantum processors. The results could open a new door for quantum computation of heavier nuclei via cloud access. Quantum computing isn’t just about speed – it’s changing the way ...
