Give yourself a breather. You don't deserve it, because the computers have been working much harder than you lately. But you need it, it's your lot in life. You're only human after all. So to all the three biological readers, here is this weeks round up of links to things we found useful and/or interesting. Consider yourselves at least somewhat appreciated.
- This NYT Opinion brings fresh thought to the table. Such as perhaps we're not talking about Artificial Intelligence, but instead Artificial Creativity. That, and 8 unique perspectives and questions about the future of AI is discussed. Behind the freaking paywall that is NYT though.
Design of the week
- Look what happens when a Dutch visual and performance artist born and in Beijing goes about her business online.
- Toon Claes, a Belgian Developer, goes all git on his personal page, which most certainly belongs in our design section.
- The MSc creative computing graduates of The University of Art in London showcases their projects here.
Okay, so you're a rocket scientist
That don't impress me much
So you got the brain but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night
That don't impress me much.
- This, however, might be the stuff of dreams. The Component Gallery is a collection of interface components from real-world design systems.
Tech of the week
- Make your videos 3D with Wist. Interesting and elaborate for sure, but useless. Sorry about the attitude, but we're overloaded with cool use cases these days and no matter how interesting this might be, it looks awful.
- Ah, should've opened this link first. Here's NVIDIA to show how it's done. They're on a roll these days.
- Bjørn Karmann out of Denmark has made a virtual camera that captures everything except the photo itself. You can then tell it what you'd like to see, and it'll compose an image according to your description and include location, weather, time of day, nearby highlights etc. A genuinely awesome experiment.
- Reach humans and don't get trapped in SPAM filters. Resend is an API that promises to help you build, test and deliver transactional emails at scale.
- Notion is gradually taking over the structure of how we work. Out now, project management. Nice.
