What We Know About the Volume

Every time we walk into a movie theater, someone's dreams are coming true. The audience – for watching their favorite story unfold upon the silver screen. The cast – for portraying the characters that bring said story to life. The director, writer, and crew – for conducting everything to bring us the best possible version of that story. But there are some unsung heroes that we often don't see or talk about, people who make the magic on screen possible, and those are the visual effects artists. Recently arrived on Disney+, the documentary series Light and Magic tells the story of the greatest of such artists, the ones who gather at the dream factory called Industrial Light & Magic (ILM).

Deepfake technology is now being used to “visually dub” movies to remove profanity for PG-13 ratings

This is probably the most practical and one of the least creepy ways I’ve seen deepfake technology being used since it was initially created. While it’s had some very impressive showcases, particularly as an alternative to badly CGI’d versions of actors looking years younger than they are or even bringing them back from the dead, this application is a little less drastic and a little more seamless.In what is being termed “vubbing”, deepfake technology is being used to generate new frames when lines are changed in post or certain things (like profanity) are cut out completely in order to appease the censors (the MPAA, in this case). With deepfake technology falling far below the budget of reshoots, it makes a lot of sense, but that the technology has come this far so quickly is also very im...

Congress invests in science and technology of future

Sen. Ben Ray Luján As the final days of summer wean off their last few minutes of sunlight, kids revive their calculators with fresh batteries for the upcoming school year and teachers return to the classroom to make sure every computer is booted up, ready to go. It’s amazing to think about all of the advanced technologies that keep everyone moving forward in life – most of which would not be imaginable 20 years ago. Without decades of government investments in technology development, the cellphone you hold in your hand today would cost $10,000 and be the size of a room. There are thousands of examples just like this – where federal funding played a role in the science and technology industries, resulting in innovative breakthroughs and public goods that benefit all Americans....

Use of facial recognition technology gets mixed reviews

Black respondents were generally skeptical about its use, but some say it’s OK in come casesThe use of facial recognition technology gets mixed responses from Black people, with some deeming it acceptable in certain instances but a larger share having reservations about the tool than those of other races.Those are the results of a Pew Research Center poll last month that examined the use of facial recognition technology by police.“We’ve asked some questions around facial recognition software a couple of years ago and again we see some patterns in which Black Americans stand out as being less accepting, more skeptical,” Monica Anderson, Pew’s associate director of research, told theGrio. “That’s one of the key takeaways for me,  not just in this survey, but we saw it in some previous work a...
