One very special type of technology that is growing rapidly nowadays is Blockchain. Despite being practically non-existent to the common public it has grown at a steady rate for the few years and its impact has been tremendously high especially in the business department.

Even though cats and dogs are different animals, what is the point of distinction between them? You might term the ability to distinguish between a cat and a dog to be common sense, but it is described as deep learning. People are not programmed to recognize different attributes in an object by inputting external information. These capabilities are inherent and cannot be induced through external stimuli, and thus are unnoticeable for us humans.

Computers, on the other hand, need gradual feeding- in the form of deterministic algorithms- to detect even the most simple judgments. Despite the surge in machine learning and connectivity, a computer cannot do what a toddler does unintentionally. The following are the developments in deep learning:

  1. Over the past six years, deep learning, which is a branch of artificial intelligence, has made tremendous progress, taking inspiration from the neural networks of the human brain. Facebook’s AI lab has built a system that can answer basic questions, to which it has never been exposed to. Amazon’s smart speaker, Echo uses deep learning as well. And three years back, Microsoft’s chief research officer took everyone by surprise at a lecture in China where the machine used deep learning to translate his English into Mandarin with the output in his own voice and an error rate of only 7%.

How “Invisible Cuts” is Revolutionizing Video Editing?

Posted on May 2, 2019

In modern world cinematography, continuity of scenes is really important giving a flow to the ongoing story and making it a visually enchanting experience for the viewers. This is a process of film transition making it necessary for the better understanding and to join the film parts, elements by elements for giving continuity to the sequences taking place in the film. Until and unless we have a good ongoing process of invisible cuts, it wouldn’t provide for an eye-catching and professional experience for the viewers.

There are generally random shot footages which are attached one by one with different effects of sounds and other effects to make it more embellishing and appealing for the viewers. There are various other effects added to this process like subtitling, 2D and 3D effect, general noise reduction, among others to give it a more realistic view. There are different software required for this process and recently many award-winning short films and feature-films have been using better software to give that special effect to each scene.
