Rather than forcing a game development team to use certain assets from the Marvel Cinematic Universe or from the original looks of the comics, for example, those have now become open discussions for what fits best for each game. This gave Insomniac Games, the developer behind "Marvel's Spider-Man" and "Miles Morales," the freedom to design their own Spider-Man suits, and Crystal Dynamics, who made "Marvel's Avengers," the choice to place Ms. Marvel (also known as Kamala Khan) front-and-center in the story. But Marvel is more strict about principles relating to their worlds and characters. Among the most important for Spider-Man is that he does not kill.
Take a minute and Google "artificial intelligence art." You might be surprised with your search results, some of which will resemble fine art portraits. Do these pieces of synthetic art belong in a museum? The increased use of artificial intelligence in art is leading people to question what qualifies and what does not. Artificial intelligence art is not just limited to visuals -- computers have been able to generate poetry, book chapters (albeit nonsensical) and Spotify playlists too.
Romanian sex tape satire "Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn" by Radu Jude won the 71st Berlin film festival's Golden Bear top prize Friday. Israeli director Nadav Lapid announced the award, saying the movie had the "rare and essential quality of a lasting artwork". The festival, which was held entirely online, also awarded its first-ever "gender neutral" best acting prize to Germany's Maren Eggert for her performance in the sci-fi comedy "I'm Your Man". In the film by "Unorthodox" director Maria Schrader, Eggert is a museum researcher who signs up to test a humanoid robot, played by British actor Dan Stevens from "Downton Abbey", as a romantic partner. The runner-up best film gong went to Japanese director Ryusuke Hamaguchi whose "Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy" is made up of three stories of women looking for connection in modern Japan.
