Guest author Tashi A. Javed, author of ‘The Human Anomaly’, explores the ‘optical illusion’ surrounding our apparent knowledge of human origins, uncovering both the contradictions and the challenges involved in piecing together this very complex puzzle.

If tracing this lineage from our earliest ancestor seems inconsistent or spotty, that’s because it is. We have a makeshift model of human history that had been cobbled together by geneticists, a

A Neural Algorithm of Artistic Style.
"In fine art, especially painting, humans have mastered the skill to create unique visual experiences through composing a complex interplay between the content and style of an image. Thus far the algorithmic basis of this process is unknown and there exists no artificial system with similar capabilities. However, in other key areas of visual perception such as object and face recognition near-human performance was recently demonstrated by a class of biologically inspired vision models called Deep Neural Networks. Here we introduce an artificial system based on a Deep Neural Network that creates artistic images of high perceptual quality. The system uses neural representations to separate and recombine content and style of arbitrary images, providing a neural algorithm for the creation of artistic images. Moreover, in light of the striking similarities between performance-optimised artificial neural networks and biological vision, our work offers a path forward to an algorithmic understanding of how humans create and perceive artistic imagery."

"Images that combine the content of a photograph with the style of several wellknown artworks. The images were created by finding an image that simultaneously matches the content representation of the photograph and the style representation of the artwork. The original photograph depicting the Neckarfront in Tubingen, Germany, is shown in A. The painting that provided the style for the respective generated image is shown in the bottom left corner of each panel. B The Shipwreck of the Minotaur by J.M.W. Turner, 1805. C The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh, 1889. D Der Schrei by Edvard Munch, 1893. E Femme nue assise by Pablo Picasso, 1910. F Composition VII by Wassily Kandinsky, 1913."

Geld, Know-How, Material - die Bundesregierung baut den Grenzschutz von Ländern wie Niger und Mali massiv aus. Für Flüchtlinge wird es immer schwerer, den Kontinent zu verlassen.

Epic cosmic battles and wars between gods are found in many cultures and ancient texts around the world. Some believe these cosmic battles originated at the beginning of time, and are responsible for the order of things, and of the creation of humanity. However, some future battles purportedly spell the end of the world for both gods and men.

Stories of epic cosmic battles can be found in many world cultures. In these battles, the lines are often drawn clearly, with the forces of good on one side and the forces of evil on the other. For so

In June 2009, archaeologists made a shocking discovery in the seaside town of Weymouth in Dorset, England. While excavating in preparation for the anticipated Weymouth Relief Road, archaeologists discovered a mass grave containing the remains of 54 dismembered skeletons, and 51 skulls in a pile within a disused Roman quarry. This curious find led many to wonder who these individuals were, and why they were killed in such a gruesome manner.
