Here’s a curious little phenomenon. It’s called “stochastic resonance.” And it’s curious because we usually think of ran…

So by increasing the entropy and with that, the large blobs more broken up, then any filter processing will be less harsh in effect.  If you do this with say a movie with random dots each frame as this then when you compress it certain aspects will also appear sharper as the lossless image compression is unable to abstract as much down into the smaller components, ie shapes that move when those shapes now have random dots/changes to them each frame.

Another consideration is that what we see is in vastly more detail than we need to identify things and it is somewhat image overloaded and by remove some of that you make it easier to see things.  But as we have relational memories then once we have seen an original we can recapture that detail in lesser versions later on.  Some of Andy Warhols work makes use of that and the classic Monroe picture being one of the best examples.

Still, pointillists will go, so what :).

Yay, I'm going to ECAL this year! It has been ten years since I last went to an ALife conference so it is probably about time! Had a paper accepted that was co-authored with +Matteo Monti and +Piet Hut.

Who else here is going? Maybe we can hang out.
Programme. Outline programme. A full programme will appear shortly. In summary: The conference will open at 09:00 Monday 20 July and close 17:30 Friday 24 July. Monday 20 July: workshops, tutorials and ISAL summer school. Tuesday 20 July to Friday 24 July: main conference tracks and keynote ...

OMG they finally did it! LEGO have released a Minecraft-like game, with full constructability. Look awesome! So pleased for them.

This could be bigger than Minecraft.

Interesting article saying that there's evidence that having largely open borders is good for the economy, even in the short term.
Even those of us who favor a path to citizenship are not going far enough, because we are mired in zero-sum thinking.

Just when you bought a new 3D printer thinking it was the state-of-the-art, the goal posts have just shifted - considerably!

Watch this awesome video of a fully-created object rise from a tank of resin. Will remind you of the Terminator scene, where the robot rises from a tank of liquid metal. Talk about science imitating fiction!
