Google just released the sourcecode behind those wonderful neural network image extrapolations.

wonderful collection of images - interpretations of things by a neural network in some cases, and in other cases the neural network told to recognize something from nothing.
(a bit like when we see a face in a random pattern, only turned up by a few orders of magnitude)

Fascinating post on neural networks being used to produce images.
Essentially inverting the normal process of using the network to identifying stuff, this time you tell it to iterate to get something it would consider something.
Like, for example, a banana.

Once again like to point all artists on my feed to this excellent painting app. Been using it over the last month or so and the features its got over other applications stun me, at least for my uses.
I'm not even much of a artist and use it mostly for technical work.
Features such as non destructive transform layers ("transform masks") appeal to me as they have direct analogy in 3d software. 
Paint on one layer, have clones/transforms elsewhere that update in realtime to reflect it- its really quite revolutionary for 2d software and you find more use's for it the more you use it.

Other features such as the ability to be able to paint in High Dynamic Range and change the exposure at will, or to have a "wrap around" mode to help make textures are really good for 3D artists.

I have linked to their Kickstarter as they very much deserve a bump, but its already fully free to download with everything I have listed and a lot more.

Krita Foundation is raising funds for Krita: free paint app - let's make it faster than Photoshop! on Kickstarter! Krita is the free and open source digital painting program used by artists all over the world. Help make Krita even faster and better!

Some very useful tools for people voting in the UK right now;
For general information about your candidates (essentially type your postcode in and see statements and such they have made);
https://yournextmp.com
For how candidates stand on internet surveillance and censorship:
https://election.openrightsgroup.org
And for a quiz on all polices to find the overall least-worst party for you;
https://voteforpolicies.org.uk
(I quite like that last one especially)
I recommend everyone voting look at this stuff as its much easier to see who believes what - Certainly compared to the the "mainstream marketing" of the parties.

Some new information on Hololens;
https://darkflame.co.uk/EverythingEverywhere/articles/

Sorry for the mess, but the info is there.
Most significant to me is the API's are just Windows10 ones. 
They specifically mentioned they hoped others would be making HMDs for their OS.
Also, all Windows10 universal apps work on Desktop,Tablets,Phones,Xbox..and Hololens.

NSA spying ruled illegal;
http://in.reuters.com/article/2015/05/07/usa-security-nsa-idINL1N0XY1OK20150507

So does that mean the poor sod that let us know about all this stuff will be allowed back to his family?
Probably not. Because reporting on illegal activity is frond upon in the US. (or, indeed, a lot of places)
Also, I hope this has some knock on effects in the UK, who's spying is just as bad (and arguably, even worse)

New Kickstarter for the insanely good, free, cross-platform painting application Krita.

Aside from painters, its also got a lot of features pretty cool for 3d artists.
Full HDR painting, for example , or wrap-around mode for texture painting.
Very recommended as (imho) its making an embarrassment out of Photoshop and the rest by the shear number of nifty/genuinely useful features they have added in such a short timescale.

Its already a fantastic app, the kickstarter is just to make it more so....by letting you make animations with it.

Just put up bunch of screenshots up from Microsofts new Hololens presentation

https://darkflame.co.uk/EverythingEverywhere/articles/

Will be updating with comments on the pics soon.

Below that is quick new details on the #Hololens as well as #Windows10.
Very impressive stuff all around from #Microsoft at the moment. Seems like they got the tech guys leading the company again.
