Though it’s just a research project for the moment.

The world is becoming increasingly anxious about the spread of fake videos and pictures, and Adobe — a name synonymous with edited imagery — says it shares those concerns. Today, it’s sharing new research in collaboration with scientists from UC Berkeley that uses machine learning to automatically detect when images of faces have been manipulated.

It’s the latest sign the company is committing more resources to this problem. Last year its engineers created an AI tool that detects edited media created by splicing, cloning, and removing objects.

Ever Wondered How NASA Photoshops Their Images?

NASA generally releases some fairly pretty pictures of things that we humans who don’t have NASA-style funding wouldn’t ever be able to see. Well, it turns out NASA doesn’t necessarily see the things they’re releasing pictures of either, at least, not how they look in said released pictures…

Some public relations photos recently released by BP, supposed to show the world that they are actively working on the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, were so obviously and poorly Photoshopped that Wired Science put out a call to show them how it’s done right. The call did not go unanswered…

That skanky-smelling dog next door was going down

Last night I stayed up late playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died.
In Vegas, I got into a long argument with the man at the roulette wheel over what I considered to be an odd number.

Sorry, but the rest of the world is laughing at you, not with you

Gloomy days often give you a gloomy outlook on life. Much like too much time in the sun will give you a sunburn, too much time in the gloom will give you a “gloomburn.” The only way to fix a gloomburn is to rub a mixture of apple pie and sunshine on the inside of your mind. Very few doctors know why it works, they just know that it does. (Pics)

Jealousy among snails is a strange thing to witness

The laws of nature state that a bad thing cannot happen unless an equal and opposite good thing happens at the same time. This has become known as the “laws of balance and goodness reciprocity.” For this reason, if the military is causing bad things to happen on the other side of the world, then we will experience relatively better things on this side of the world. Problem is that we have yet to figure out the exact location where the good thing will happen. Its not an exact science by any stretch of the imagination, but at least the military is doing their part. (Pics)

Charles Darwin called and he wants his theory of evolution back

If tomorrow was yesterday, and the day after tomorrow was the day after yesterday, it would still be today only two days later. However, if the time differential between the same day occurring twice in the same week is less than zero, we have a serious problem. I think you can see where I’m going with this. Wow! And it was so obvious! (Pics)
