AI-generated anime selfies propel beauty app to top in Japan

The Japan Times

The ability to turn a user's selfie into an anime character has turbocharged the Meitu app to the top of Japan's download rankings over the past week, spurring a big jump in the company's shares. Hong Kong-based Meitu is up more than 50% over the past couple of weeks, in which time its app has reached the top of Apple's free iPhone downloads chart and No. 2 on Android's Google Play in Japan, according to data.ai While not new to the Japanese market, the key novelty in the beauty app was the addition of the option to transform a photo into an anime style with the help of AI. The use of AI to generate or alter images has taken off in global popularity this year with the introduction of text-to-image systems like Midjourney and OpenAI's Dall-E. The technology is not without its controversy, but its appeal and accessibility have helped it proliferate.


Tesla appears to be turning back to radar for its vehicles • TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

Tesla plans to add a new radar product to its vehicles in mid-January, according to documents posted with the Federal Communications Commission. The disclosure, which was first reported by Electrek, comes as the company faces scrutiny over the safety and capabilities of its standard advanced driver assistance system known as Autopilot and the $15,000 optional upgraded product branded as "Full Self-Driving." Tesla FSD beta software offers some automated driving features but is not a self-driving system. The luxury EV-maker has long claimed it could reach full autonomy through a "vision only" approach that shuns other sensors like lidar and radar in favor of cameras and a deep neural network that quickly processes a vehicle's surroundings and responds in real time. Tesla CEO Elon Musk previously promised to "solve" full self-driving by the end of this year (he's also promised Tesla would get there every year for roughly nine years now).


Director of Data Science at Found - Remote-US

#artificialintelligence

Found is a modern weight care platform and community focused on integrated support. According to a recent CDC study, nearly 50% of Americans want to lose weight, and on average, Americans have gained 30 lbs during the pandemic. But the existing weight loss industry focuses on shame - if you don't have the willpower to eat less and workout more, you aren't trying hard enough. Modern science shows us that weight care is complex - food and movement are important, but so are hormones, genetics, sleep, stress, mental health, and daily habits. Found's unique approach incorporates resources and tools for behavior changes, a digital app with guided programming, an online community, and if indicated, medical and prescription solutions.
