Watch Scenes from Czarist Moscow Vividly Restored with Artificial Intelligence (May 1896)

#artificialintelligence

In May of 1896, Charles Moisson and Francis Doublier traveled to Moscow on behalf of the Lumière Brothers company, bearing with them the newly developed Lumière Cinématogaphe camera. Their purpose: to document the coronation of Tsar Nicholas II--the last Emperor of Russia, though no one would have known that at the time. The coronation was an extraordinary event, soon to be overshadowed by even more extraordinary events in the Revolutionary years to come. An enormous celebration followed, with gifts, bread, sausage, pretzels, beer, and a commemorative cup to revelers. The promise of these gifts led to what was later called the Khodynka Tragedy.

An engineer checking and controlling welding robotics automatic arms machines in an intelligent industrial automotive factory using a monitoring system software used to belong to the science fiction realm. However, this is the reality of digital manufacturing operations in today's Industry 4.0 smart factories. Industry 4.0 is a concept that originated in Germany and is related to the integration of Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology with networking and analytics with industry processes. Another ingredient in Industry 4.0 is Artificial Intelligence, one of the fastest growing emerging technologies with a market expected to reach $70 billion by 2020. Artificial Intelligence is transforming jobs across all industries already, a tendency that is increasing.

One year on

It's one year since music legend David Bowie succumbed to cancer. The musician died two days after his 69th birthday, having kept his illness hidden from everyone except his family and closest collaborators. He had only just released his 25th album, Blackstar, which came to be seen as his "parting gift" to fans, reflecting as it did on themes of mortality and decay. It was a typically adventurous and enigmatic record from a musician who maintained a sense of mystery throughout his career. Since his death, however, fans have been afforded the occasional glimpse into his creative life - all of which elevate his status as a visionary, musical genius and humanitarian.
