Ah interesting.. I didn’t think that chroma keying was widely available or cheap enough in the late 60s.

I always find behind the scenes stuff really cool, but I think my brain isn’t creative enough to understand how this works. Can anyone smarter at cinematography explain to me what’s going on here?

~~Ehh not sure I’d consider this “insane people” material tbh. Tone is hard to convey in text form and based on the emojis I think there’s a decent chance he’s just making a lighthearted joke, at least without seeing anything else this guy has posted. Seems like it might just be a dude having harmless fun exploring the woods.~~

Edit: change up wording to make grammatical sense.

Edit 2: I saw the “Old World Hidden Truth” shit lmao.. disregard everything I wrote above.

Yeah that’s very true.

With it being local it’s probably a small and limited model. I took a couple courses on machine learning years ago (before it got rebranded as “AI”), and you’d be surprised at how well a basic image recognition model can run on the lowest-spec macbook from 2012.

We’re looking at how we can use local, on-device AI models -- i.e., more private -- to enhance your browsing experience further. One feature we’re starting with next quarter is AI-generated alt-text for images inserted into PDFs, which makes it more accessible to visually impaired users and people with learning disabilities. The alt text is then processed on your device and saved locally instead of cloud services, ensuring that enhancements like these are done with your privacy in mind.

IMO if everything’s going to have AI ham fisted into it, this is probably the least shitty way to do so. With Firefox being open source, the code can also be audited to ensure they’re actually keeping their word about it being local-only.

No, no, you got it all wrong. It’s freedom for bigots to not have “the gay agenda” forcibly foisted upon them. Don’t you see how it could be offensive to and even discriminatory against christofascists to be reminded that non-straight people exist and are human beings too? Idk dude it sounds to me like you just hate small government conservative values ™️ and freedom.

(/s if it wasn’t obvious)

I had to check if that was actually there because at first I just couldn’t believe. It’s actually there. The author of this piece just casually put a section titled “Threat” under their contact details, as if that’s a normal thing you include when you share your writing.

Just wear hundreds of thousands of them glued together, problem solved.

On a more realistic note though, the applications of this will probably be industrial for a good while. I found it interesting how the article mentions that they were able to develop a diamond coating over their growth substrate. That probably has some cool applications in industrial settings where diamond-plated materials are used.

Not sure if intentional or not, but this dude also looks like the world’s most obvious undercover cop, which adds another layer to the costume.

I mean, fair. I’m not criticizing him for not sticking around, I just don’t know that “survive” is an accurate term.

[-] [email protected] 53 points 1 week ago

Does it count as “surviving” if you make it less than two weeks at the job?
