This is also true for the smallest flying structure humans have built to date. Inspired by the way trees like maples disperse their seeds using little more than a stiff breeze, researchers developed a range of tiny flying microchips, the smallest one hardly bigger than a grain of sand. This flying microchip … Continue reading The Smallest flying structure humans have built – Watch Video

Something in The Eyes Reveals if You’re Looking at a Person Who Doesn’t Exist

We live in fake times. Reality is as prevalent as it ever was, of course, but it’s becoming harder to find all the time. Perhaps nowhere is this phenomenon more unsettling than in the weird world of ‘deepfakes’ and other computer-generated faces of people who don’t actually exist (yet look uncannily like the real thing). Scientists have now developed a technique that could help us detect whether the faces we’re looking at are indeed genuine people, as opposed to phantasms conjured by artificial intelligence (AI). According to a new preprint study led by first author and computer scientist Hui Guo … Continue reading Something in The Eyes Reveals if You’re Looking at a Person Who Doesn’t Exist
