Beware of this Android security hole. There's an easy way to help protect yourself by turning off the "auto retrieve mms" setting.

Sweet. I'm going to have to find some good pictures to try out.
 
Generate your own Neural Network inspired images with DeepDream

Two weeks ago we blogged about a visualization tool designed to help us understand how neural networks work and what each layer has learned (http://goo.gl/pUfbyH). In addition to gaining some insight on how these networks carry out classification tasks, we found that this process also generated some beautiful art.

Now you can make your own images using an open source IPython notebook, which allows you to choose which layers in the network to enhance, how many iterations to apply and how far to zoom in. Alternatively, different pre-trained networks can be plugged in.

It'll be interesting to see what imagery people are able to generate. If you post images to Google+, Facebook, or Twitter, be sure to tag them with #deepdream so other researchers can check them out too.

Your Tomorrowland may start with printing parts in space, but soon you'll be printing "tea, Earl Grey, hot" in space! I'm excited.
 
Our #Tomorrowland is reality with 3-D printing on the International Space Station, enabling long-duration missions: http://go.nasa.gov/1F6LhFv

Flying by the "Death Star" Moon! In this view captured by our Cassini spacecraft on its closest-ever flyby of Saturn's moon Mimas, large Herschel Crater dominates Mimas, making the moon look like the Death Star in the movie "Star Wars." May the 4th Be With You!

My workplace is celebrating Pi Day today with pies. I don't trust myself baking a pie, so I brought mint chocolate chip brownie Pi instead. #pipiepan

A Dust Devil on Mars

It was late in the northern martian spring when the HiRISE camera onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spied this local denizen. Tracking across the flat, dust-covered Amazonis Planitia in 2012, the core of this whirling dust devil is about 140 meters in diameter. Lofting dust into the thin martian atmosphere, its plume reaches about 20 kilometers above the surface. Common to this region of Mars, dust devils occur as the surface is heated by the Sun, generating warm, rising air currents that begin to rotate. Tangential wind speeds of up to 110 kilometers per hour are reported for dust devils in other HiRISE images.

I'm a little behind the curve in posting about #Pluto, but I've been watching the pictures as they arrive. Here's a helpful diagram I've found.

This is amazing stuff!

Here's what happened when Google allowed its image recognition software to generate its own images.

Roboturtle!
Look, we know this sea turtle's prosthetic beak has a tragic backstory, but it sure makes the reptile look like it has a future as a badass pizza-loving

The International Space Station is caught here flying by the moon! It's seen as a small object in upper left of this image of the moon in the early evening Jan. 4, 2012, in the skies over the Houston area flying at an altitude of 390.8 kilometers (242.8 miles). The space station can occasionally be seen in the night sky with the naked eye and a pair of field binoculars.

Volcano of Fire Erupts Under the Stars
Image Credit & Copyright: Diego Rizzo
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap150311.html

First, there was an unusual smell. Then there was a loud bang. But what appeared to the eye was the most amazing of all. While waiting near midnight to see a possible eruption of Volcán de Fuego (Volcano of Fire) in Guatemala last month, a ready camera captured this extraordinary image. Lava is seen running down the side of the volcano, while ash rises up, and glowing magma bubbles explode out of the caldera. Lights near the town of Escuintla can be seen in the background, one of several nearby towns that have witnessed several spectacular eruptions previously. High above, seemingly tranquil by comparison, are familiar stars from the night sky. Although the Volcán de Fuego usually undergoes low-level activity, when the next spectacular eruption will occur is unknown.
