Not From Earth App

The Not From Earth Alien Detection App is within weeks of launching. We've got a link to their first video tutorial.

This App is a lot of fun. It uses image recognition, segmentation, style transfer effects and more.




Much more to come about this App because of the technology it uses. 

MacBook Pro 16 Inch

The new Macbook Pro 16 inch is the best laptop ever built by Apple. I just purchased one and I love it. Finally a computer for on the go programmers, designers and writers with nothing left behind.

Here's why:

1. At full use,  the battery lasts 11 hours. 

2. Comes with an Immersive 16-Inch Retina Display that is 80 Percent Faster

3. They finally fixed the keyboard. I'm not kidding. 

4. The display has a resolution of 3072x1920 and a higher pixel density of 226 ppi. The 16-inch Retina display delivers 6 million pixels.

5. It comes with advanced thermal architecture. The best ever in a notebook. So it runs at higher power for sustained periods of time. 

6.  The latest 6- and 8-core 9th-generation processors with Turbo Boost speeds up to 5.0 GHz, deliver 2.1 times faster performance than the quad-core 15-inch MacBook Pro. This thing rips. 

7.  It comes with a new AMD Radeon Pro 5000M series graphics with GDDR6 video memory upgradable from 4 GB to 8GB of VRAM. Th GPU is 80 percent faster than the previous high-end configuration.

8. You are able to upgrade to 8 TB of storage.

At a similar price as previous Macbooks, Apple finally has a product that is worth the cost.

Not From Earth Photos

Fun Alien Photos

There are a lot of fun photos being posted here: https://www.instagram.com/notfrom.earth/

The Not From Earth App has both a depth matte camera as well as DeepAI photo segmentation. This lets the App place discovered aliens on their home planet.

For Example:

The Art of Self Publishing

I wrote an article on Medium for Self-Publishing.

Based on my efforts, I wrote down helpful steps, tips and told about the tools and websites you need to know about and how to use them.

Magic 3D Cameras. How do they work?

A dual lens camera, like that on the back of an iPhone X, uses the lens separation to detect a parallax shift to measure 3D depth? Objects closer to the camera, shift by a greater distance between the two lenses. This parallax shift, based on distance, is called disparity. 

Then how does the single lens front-facing camera measure depth? This technology is called TrueDepth. You might be surprised to know that the TrueDepth camera projects an infrared light pattern in front of the camera. By observing how the pattern is distorted by objects in front of the camera lens, the snapshot software calculates the distance from the camera to each point in the image. From this, it creates its own disparity. 

Both technologies then generate a secondary image of depth pixels. But instead of each pixel representing a color, the pixels represent depth at that point. By combining a depth map with colors it is possible to blur or even make transparent parts of a photo such as the background of a portrait.

Quantum Entanglement = Simulated Reality

Do not read this article if you are timid and want to believe this world is real. It's like taking the red pill. The article was written by one of our contributors, Rob Adamson.

The transcript about Quantum Entanglement and Simulated Reality was published on Medium by Hacker Noon and featured on their home page.

There seems to be quantum proof that we are all living in a computer simulation.
