Picking up food to deliver to some of the less mobile seniors in the community I’m living in. This foodbank is incredible to have available.
Ya know. A lot of people miss this important item that comes with success. You can think of success as being married to effort – Luck helps, but regardless of how lucky you are, when you don’t care enough to put the work in… it falls apart.
It’s not magic. Just saying.
Am I missing something here? Essentially this is a good deepfake white labeled as a product. Nifty definitely. But sometimes I wonder to the ramifications of off label use. See below:
This AI has reconstructed actual Rachmaninov playing his own piano piece By Rosie Pentreath @rosiepentreath via classicfm.com
In 1919, Rachmaninov’s performance of his own devilish Prelude in C minor was punched into piano roll for posterity. Now you can see him play it. No, really.
In 1919, legendary Russian composer, Sergei Rachmaninov, recorded his own performance of his Prelude in C minor onto piano roll, so it could be preserved as a recording.
The Prelude in question is a very difficult piece, and Rachmaninov was able to play its hardest passages up to speed, and with exhilarating energy.
And now – as well as hearing the performance through the historic piano roll, you can now see the performance (watch above).
NASA’s Human Research Program: Three Steps to Mars
Sending astronauts to Mars is the next giant leap of human space travel. In preparation for a trip to the Red Planet, NASA is taking a stepping stone approach to studying the health effects of human spaceflight using Earth-based analogs , the International Space Station, and lunar missions under the agency’s Artemis program.
NASA’s Human Research Program, or HRP, conducts research and develops countermeasures for five of the hazards of human spaceflight: radiation, isolation and confinement, distance from Earth, microgravity, and hostile/closed environments. These hazards pose risks to astronaut health and performance, and NASA aims to understand and manage those risks through research at each step, gradually moving farther from Earth using analog, space station, and lunar mission studies.
