Artificial Intelligence Creates Realistic Photos of People, None of Whom Actually Exist
”…una separació no supervisada, apresa automàticament, d'atributs d'alt nivell (p. ex. posa i identitat quan s'entrena amb cares humanes) i variacions estocàstiques en les imatges generades (p. ex. pigues, cabells)." Aquest conjunt d’algorismes de Nvidia crea fotoretrats que <em>pareixen</em> reals. Si els veiem a Instagram, ens <em>creurem</em> que són reals.

iPhone = Leica
Think about it—in the early days of Leica the little cameras were a) low in prestige compared to larger, more "serious" cameras; b) technically inferior; c) not taken seriously by initiates and cognoscenti; quick and stealthy and not often noticed or given much regard; yet d) capable of "good enough" results. The pictures were often "better" in terms of being visually dynamic and lively rather than in bourgeois technical fastidiousness or perfection. Leica photography was (or could be) iconoclastic, disruptive, subversive.

To beat the iPhone, you have to beat the iPhone’s camera
In all the years of Android’s existence, in spite of huge investments of time and money, there’s never been a standout Android cameraphone. Some have cameras that are better in low light than the iPhone’s, many have higher resolution, and a number claim to be faster at focusing — but none pull it all together into the same comprehensive package that the iPhone can offer. Samsung and LG give you a pared-down "just shoot" experience, but they lack software polish and speed; Motorola’s camera launches and shoots quickly, but the quality is mediocre; and Sony manages to combine an excellent image sensor with terrible autofocus. Microsoft’s PureView cameras fare better, but the Windows Phone camera app is comparatively slow and unintuitive, and there’s a reason why former Lumia chief Ari Partinen is now tagging his photos with #iPhone6Plus instead of #Lumia1520.
