New deepfake tech turns a single photo and audio file into a singing video portrait



Another day, another deepfake: but this time they can sing.

 Finally, technology that can make Rasputin sing like Beyoncé

New research from Imperial College in London and Samsung’s AI research center in the UK shows how a single photo and audio file can be used to generate a singing or talking video portrait. Like previous deepfake programs we’ve seen, the researchers uses machine learning to generate their output. And although the fakes are far from 100 percent realistic, the results are amazing considering how little data is needed.

NASA working on faster than the speed of light travel

 We are at the point right now where faster-than-light travel is still theoretical, but possible.

Currently, NASA is working on the first practical field test toward the possibility of faster than light travel.Traveling faster than light has always been attributed to science fiction, but that all changed when Harold White and his team at NASA started to work on and tweak the Alcubierre Drive.

Can the Khan Academy help find the next Einstein?

Albert Einstein

A vision for the future would be one where everyone will be able to learn at their own pace and where it would be competency based. Once you feel like you know something you can prove it, and the world respects that, and maybe you have to maintain that knowledge state, it’s not that you just have to prove it once and not have to worry about it.

Scientists prove time travel is impossible


Scientists say time travel is impossible by showing a single photon cannot travel faster than the speed of light.

Physicists in Hong Kong say they have proved that a single photon obeys Einstein’s theory that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light — demonstrating that outside science fiction, time travel is impossible.

Underground Telescope Could Give Scientists First Glimpse of the Dawn of the Universe


Scientists could get their first glimpse of the dawn of the universe from a telescope buried up to half a mile underground.  This new device is designed to detect gravitational waves.  Gravitational waves are an elusive phenomena created by some of the most violent events in the universe such as black holes, neutron stars and the Big Bang.


Project Einstein: Granting Rural Kids In Guatemala A Photographic Vision Of Their Lives

Through the photographic lens of a child.

The youth photo training group Project Einstein got its start with group of young people living in a refugee camp in Bangladesh. One of the participants came up with the name because “Einstein was a refugee but could still do great things.”

Spacecraft To Test Einstein’s Theory Of Relativity

Does E really equal mc squared?
In what is billed to be the largest scientific instrument ever built, scientists plan to use three spacecraft flying three million miles apart to fire laser beams at each other across the emptiness of space in a bid to finally prove whether a theory proposed by Albert Einstein is correct.

Physicists hope the ambitious mission will allow them to prove the existence of gravitational waves — a phenomenon predicted in Einstein’s famous theory of general relativity and the last piece of his theory still to be proved correct, reports the Telegraph…


Is Einstein The World’s Smallest Horse?

5 einstein world smallest horse 794

Will tiny horses become the hot new craze?

Einstein is just three days old, after being born on Friday at a farm in Barnstead, New Hampshire.

It’s thought that Einstein could lay a claim to the title of the world’s lightest foal – his 6lb weight at birth being normal for a human baby, but not a horse, even a miniature breed like Einstein. (With pics and video)


Absurd ideas create success – But first, you may have to retrain your brain


“If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.” — Albert Einstein

I think we can all agree that Albert Einstein was a pretty smart guy and came up with some great ideas and concepts, but his quote above is also great advice to all of us in business. It’s a quote that I have printed on my business card and something I embrace in creating new companies and products.

Einstein Lives


Its alive Its alive

Albert Einstein has not only been born again, he is even more empathetic and happier than he was when he lived. Although only his head and shoulders live, this rubberized version of the genius smiles or frowns and has eyes that follow underneath the trademark Einstein shock of white hair and above the full moustache that were so much a part of his persona.
