Google's new AI image noise reduction tool could be a game changer
Google Research is working on new AI image noise reduction technology that could drastically change low-light photography. The tool is capable of reconstructing a dark scene with powerful denoising and minimal artifacts, comfortably outperforming existing denoise tools.
Researchers trained an algorithm to identify people’s self-reported race from medical images, but they are mystified as to how it works.
Doctors can’t tell a person’s race from medical images such as x-rays and CT scans. But a team including MIT researchers was able to train a deep-learning model to identify patients as white, Black, or Asian (according to their own description) just by analyzing such images—and they still can’t figure out how the computer does it.
Sample Logic Synth AI, a new hybrid synth instrument for Kontakt
Synth AI (Animated Intelligence) is a new virtual instrument that offers a modern fusion of cinematic synthesis. It is based on 24GB of multi-sample content from analog, digital, modern, and vintage instruments. The sounds are embedded in a four-layer engine, each with a multi-sample. Each layer has different parameters, including volume, pan, filter, AR envelope, velocity control, and more.
