Sony’s new flagships ditch an aging design for full screens

  Sony’s new flagships ditch an aging design for full screens Sony's phones have looked largely the same for years now, but that's apparently about to change. The two phones appear to be mostly similar, other than their different sizes. The XZ2 boasts a 5.7-inch screen, while the compact version measures at 5.0 inches. They both are powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 (reportedly the same chip in the Samsung Galaxy S9) and run on Android 8.0.0 Oreo.

The search juggernaut is using AI and machine learning (naturally) to make replacing the background of video you take as easy as adding an Instagram filter to a photo. All without the need for an elaborate green screen setup, too.

Google is bringing pro-level video-editing techniques to your phone. The search juggernaut is using AI and machine learning (naturally) to make replacing the background of video you take as easy as adding an Instagram filter to a photo. There's a lot of technical jargon explaining how it all works at the source link, but suffice to say, based on the results it looks pretty convincing. All without the need for an elaborate green screen setup, too.

The tech is only available in a limited beta, and even then, just for certain YouTube creators. To get just a little more limited, the feature is just for "stories" using the video service's new video format. Yes, they look like Snapchat's and Instagram's video captures by the same name. Don't trust me? Glance immediately below this paragraph.

It’s Time To Talk About Dangerous Stunts On YouTube . You see, it turns out that there are a bunch of young YouTube vloggers who have won fame and success by skirting along the fine line between health & safety, and danger & criminality.

The results aren't perfect, of course -- there are some halo-like artifacts around the edges of dark clothing, for example -- but this looks like the next logical step after Google's AI-powered portrait mode for still photos on the Pixel 2.

YouTube plans 'information cues' to combat hoaxes .
During a talk at SXSW 2018, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki revealed one way her company will push back against the spread of misinformation. Over the last couple of years, as people have become more concerned about the ways hoaxers, trolls and even foreign governments use the internet to spread false information, we've seen more information about YouTube's role. It's not only playing a part in hosting and displaying videos that often push extreme conspiracies, but its algorithm can suggest (and therefore incentivize creators to make) videos that increasingly contain far-out ideas.
