Adobe Technical Paper Genius

August 13, 2017, 16:08 PM


Adobe delivered one of the most impressive papers at this year's SIGGRAPH technical papers. The essence of the paper is to build on previous research to provide Stylized Facial Animations based off an arbitrary example style, such as a painting. This paper is the basis of Jakub Fišer PhD at the Czech Technical University in Prague.

“A symphony must be like the world; it must embrace everything.” So Gustav Mahler famously expressed to Jean Sibelius, and his own symphonies bear out this expansive vision: vast musical assemblages that often turn from ecstasy to despair at the turn of a dime.

The Case Against Reality - The Atlantic

June 2, 2016, 12:17 PM


As we go about our daily lives, we tend to assume that our perceptions—sights, sounds, textures, tastes—are an accurate portrayal of the real world. Sure, when we stop and think about it—or when we find ourselves fooled by a perceptual illusion—we realize with a jolt that what we perceive is never the world directly, but rather our brain’s best guess at what that world is like, a kind of internal simulation of an external reality. Still, we bank on the fact that our simulation is a reasonably decent one. If it wasn’t, wouldn’t evolution have weeded us out by now? The true reality might be forever beyond our reach, but surely our senses give us at least an inkling of what it’s really like.
