“I just watched my first few videos. My god, that was such a cringefest,” my boyfriend told me the other day. It made me think of all those trips down the memory lane which regularly make me feel embarrassed with myself. Some of them include looking back at my old photos.

Google’s AI labels what it sees in your photos, and sometimes it doesn’t really do the best job. Now Google has announced some changes and its Cloud Vision API tool is going gender-neutral. Instead of labeling people in photos as “man” or “woman,” the tool will now play it safe and label them simply as “person.”
Sony World Photography Awards (SWPA) recently announced finalists and shortlists of its annual contest. However, some images of Hong Kong protests have been removed due to their alleged “sensitive nature.” This has caused a backlash in the community, accusing competition organizers of censorship.
Teenage years are a tricky period made almost entirely of rebellious acts and bad decisions. Some of the latter could include taking nude photos and sharing them with the wrong people. But Tone Mobile has a potential solution to this. The Japanese company has launched Tone e20, a cheap phone that uses AI to recognize nudes. If your kid snaps an inappropriate selfie, the phone will recognize it and automatically delete it.
So, you take great photos, especially of people and events. Friends keep asking you if you’ve thought of shooting weddings.

Thwaites Glacier is a huge glacier in Antarctica, often referred to as “Doomsday Glacier.” Why “doomsday?” Well, if it melts away, researchers say that it could raise the sea levels more than 10 feet. This is why it’s important for scientists to understand the behavior of his glacier – and a recent video from Icefin Robot will help them in this mission.
The video was recently published on YouTube, but it’s not only a tool for scientists to study the glacier. It’s also the first-ever video recorder under the ice of Thwaites Glacier, and it’s absolutely mesmerizing to watch.
We’ve seen plenty of hilarious and downright incredible Photoshop fails. One thing they never fail to do, though, is making us laugh. A few days ago, an episode of “The Bachelor” came under the spotlight for its terrible Photoshop job. It features women in bikinis having a photoshoot, but the producers apparently believed that some bikinis revealed too much. So, they “extended” them by literally painting them in, and it looks so terrible that I highly suspect they used MS Paint.
That social media is full of fakery is old news. But what fascinates me is just how easy it is to fake your life on Instagram. YouTuber Natalia Taylor recently decided to test it out herself. She “traveled” to the nearest IKEA store and took some photos, even purposely leaving some IKEA price tags in them. She shared them on Instagram, and she managed to prank her followers to believe that she was on a vacation in Bali. Natalia shares more details in her recent video, and it’s a useful reminder that social media isn’t real.

He shared his experience in a video and it’s as fascinating as it is scary.
