Space Render 1.0: Artificial Intelligence in 3D Animation


Space Render 1.0: Artificial Intelligence in 3D Animation Create wow-inspiring 3D Animation and VFX Video super-fast using Cloud-Based Artificial Intelligence (AI) Tools Typically traditional and normal animation learning focusses on learning complex CGI software which are prone to be difficult for newbies to master very quickly – unless the learners are technically strong. Of course, these kind of software work through deploying traditional frame-by-frame animation methods that take a tedious amount of time to complete a short animated film of 5 minutes duration. Bring in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools into this and this will drastically change the scenario – for sure. This course is a testament of the same. This mind-blowing course titled "Space Render 1.0: Artificial Intelligence in 3D Animation" created by Digital Marketing Legend "Srinidhi Ranganathan" and Mastermind "Saranya Srinidhi will teach you cloud based tools to achieve the same extraordinary output that is stunning enough to wow your crowd in a matter of HOURS.

NEWS: Humanoid AI Robot To Take the Role of Lead Actress in an Upcoming Sci-Fi Film -- The Confessionals


Robots are likely to replace a lot of jobs in the future, but these roles are generally well-suited to automation. For some jobs -- particularly creative professions -- it'll be much harder to simply swap in a digital employee. But as a forthcoming feature film proves, it won't be impossible. According to Hollywood Reporter, science-fiction movie b will be the first to rely on an artificially intelligent actor. Meet Erica (pictured above), a humanoid robot that will take center stage in Life Productions' $70 million picture, which tells the tale of a scientist tasked with creating perfect human DNA.

Ms Marvel: Trailblazing Muslim superhero goes gaming

BBC News

"It's the representation in gaming I've waited for my whole life." Marvel's Avengers are assembling once again, not on the big screen, but for a blockbuster video game. It features many of the superheroes you might expect, including Iron Man, Hulk and Captain America. But they are joined by a new addition: Kamala Khan. The Muslim-American teenager of Pakistani heritage, who has shape-shifting abilities, is the latest character to adopt the Ms Marvel moniker.

Using 'face doubles,' a new doc captures an anti-LGBTQ purge

Boston Herald

Anonymous sources in documentaries have often been reduced to a shadowy, voice-distorted figure -- or worse, a pixelated blur. But a new documentary premiering Tuesday on HBO has, with the aid of advanced digital technology, gone to greater lengths to preserve the secrecy of its sources while still conveying their humanity. "Welcome to Chechnya," directed by David France, is about an underground pipeline created to rescue LGBTQ Chechens from the Russian republic where the government has for several years waged a crackdown on gays. In the predominantly Muslim region in southern Russia ruled by strongman Ramzan Kadyrov, LGBTQ Chechens have been detained, tortured and killed. France, the filmmaker behind "How to Survive a Plague" and "The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson," worked in secrecy with the Russian LGBT Network, a group formed to help save gay Chechens and find them asylum abroad.

Disney's Developed Movie-Quality Face-Swapping Technology That Promises to Change Filmmaking


In a few short years, neural-network-powered automated face swaps have gone from being mildly convincing to eerily believable. But through new research from Disney, neural face-swapping is poised to become a legitimate and high-quality tool for visual effects studios working on Hollywood blockbusters. One of the bigger challenges of creating deepfake videos, as they've come to be known, is creating a vast database of facial images of a person--thousands of different expressions and poses--that can be swapped into a target video. The larger the database and the higher the quality of the images, the better the face swaps will turn out. But the images (which are more often than not headshots of famous people) are usually pulled from sources with limited resolution.

'Time travel' to the 1890s in AI-remastered silent movies that look like HD video


Shot more than a century ago, a scene showing "Buffalo Bill" as he conducts an interview with an Oglala Lakota leader looks as if it were filmed yesterday. This old film clip was recently remastered using artificial intelligence (AI), and the result lookslike high-definition video. The artist behind this transformation is giving Live Science readers a first look at the astonishing result. Though still black and white, the remastered footage no longer appears jittery and sped-up, as silent films usually do. Motion in very old movies looks unnaturally fast because the hand-cranked film cameras of the day captured fewer frames per second (fps) than cameras do now.

Is Dystopian Future Inevitable with Unprecedented Advancements in AI?


Artificial super-intelligence (ASI) is a software-based system with intellectual powers beyond those of humans across an almost comprehensive range of categories and fields of endeavor. The reality is that AI has been with here for a long time now, ever since computers were able to make decisions based on inputs and conditions. When we see a threatening Artificial Intelligence system in the movies, it's the malevolence of the system, coupled with the power of some machine that scares people. However, it still behaves in fundamentally human ways. The kind of AI that prevails today can be described as an Artificial Functional Intelligence (AFI). These systems are programmed to perform a specific role and to do so as well or better than a human.

Artificially Intelligent Robot Erica lands the lead role in a US$70M Sci-Fi Movie


We have often seen Sci-Fi movies powered by computer-simulated reality bring a dystopian future alive to reel life. In a step ahead, an AI (artificial intelligence) robot Erica is all set to star in a movie titled "b" which began filming in Japan in 2019 and is expected wrap up in Europe by June 2021. Erica's, big break "b" is backed by Bondit Capital Media, which produced Loving Vincent and To the Bone. The other co-producers financing "b" includes New York's 10Ten Media and Happy Moon Productions. "b" is the brainchild of visual effects supervisor Eric Pham, Tarek Zohdy, and Sam Khoze, and explores the journey of an artificially intelligent woman, Erica, who is playing herself.

A.I. Artificial Intelligence shows us a future where we neglect to dream


The Verge is a place where you can consider the future. In Yesterday's Future, we revisit a movie about the future and consider the things it tells us about today, tomorrow, and yesterday. The future: A.I. begins with a brief summary of the sorry state of the world: climate change has melted the polar ice caps, wiping out coastal cities and severely reducing the human population. With regulations in place for reproduction on a resource-starved planet, corporations developed Mecha -- androids that appear human but lack emotions. They're seen as objects -- useful for labor or sex work, just human enough to not be strange but machine enough to not mistake them for people.
