Text to image AI like DALL-E and Midjourney creates detailed images in seconds with a user generated prompt

Pieces of artwork can be created in the blink of an eye with AI technology. Whether it’s writing an essay, creating a video or a drawing, if you can think it, AI can probably create it. Text to image generators are an evolving form of AI that are able to create images based off of a few words inputted by users. Depending on the software being used, images can get extremely detailed and complex. There are several different softwares out there that contain this type of technology, some free, some partially free and some paid services. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT AI  OpenAI is the creator of the popular AI chatbot, ChatGPT, and has also created image generators.  (Costfoto/NurPhoto via Getty Images)Below is a general overview of text to image AI, including ho...

An AT&T-backed cellular satellite company sent a 4G LTE signal from space

A Texas company called AST SpaceMobile managed to successfully transmit a 4G LTE signal from space that was picked up by “everyday, off-the-shelf smartphones,” the company announced this morning. The satellite AST used, called BlueWalker 3 (BW3), will try a 5G connection for its next major test. The company says its recent test was a “world first.”Testing was conducted in Hawaii on AT&T’s spectrum using Nokia RAN technology, and the signal, which was beamed from AST’s satellite in low Earth orbit, reached speeds of up to 10.3Mbps. That’s fast enough for some video streaming, general internet use, and more ordinary cell phone usage.AST’s testing followed a recent April test by the same company, where it was able to route an audio call between a Samsung Galaxy S22 in Texas to an iPhon...

AI reveals ancient symbols hidden in Peruvian desert famous for alien theories

Artificial intelligence has catapulted the world into the future with platforms that can simulate how humans talk and even process information — but the tech can also help solve history’s great mysteries.Researchers with Yamagata University Institute of Nasca and IBM Japan used a deep learning AI model to uncover Peruvian geoglyphs etched into the Nazca desert that date back to between 500 BC and 500 AD. Geoglyphs are depressions made to the earth to create various shapes and lines, with Peru having what are considered the world’s most famous geoglyphs known as the Nazca Lines. Geoglyphs are often massive, with previously discovered Nazca Lines reaching up to 1,200 feet long, which makes them virtually impossible to detect when on the ground. Archeologists first uncovered the Peruvian g...

Spotify overhauls design of its desktop app

Spotify has officially announced a redesign for its desktop app that aims to offer easier access to details on the song or podcast you’re currently listening to, and give you new ways to organize your playlists and other content. According to a blog post published yesterday the changes — which Spotify calls “one of its biggest revamps yet” — are rolling out to “all Desktop users worldwide” from this week.The biggest change you’re likely to notice after the update is the Your Library sidebar on the left of the screen. Rather than showing a simple text list of playlists, the interface now includes colorful icons. It also shows recently played artists and albums to quickly jump back into, alongside playlists. You can minimize the sidebar to just see these icons, or expand it to see the nam...

Reddit removed moderators behind the latest protests before restoring a few of them

Update June 20th, 10:31PM ET: Since we published this story, the mods of r/mildlyinteresting report their accounts have been reinstated. We’ve updated the story below to reflect the change.Reddit has started removing moderator teams managing subreddits that switched the labeling on their communities to Not Safe For Work (NSFW) in the latest protests against the site.With subreddits tagged NSFW, in addition to applying an age gate for desktop viewers and restricting access on mobile devices to logged-in users in the Reddit app, Reddit also doesn’t show ads. This cuts into its ability to monetize them, which is a major part of Reddit’s disputed push to charge apps for using the API. On Thursday, r/MildlyInteresting was one that had gone NSFW, following in the footsteps of others like r/in...

Domino’s Pinpoint Delivery feature delivers pizzas nearly anywhere

As a result, all you need to do is simply drop a pin of your location in Google Maps from within Domino’s mobile app to receive your order. From there, you’ll be able to track drivers’ GPS locations, check wait times, and receive text updates about your order.Sadly, though, you can’t get your pizza delivered straight to your beach chair. That’s because you’ll have to meet your driver wherever the app deems the best pickup spot for them to pull over their vehicle. There are some other caveats, too. You’ll only have four minutes to meet your driver — so good luck getting your pizza in time if your hiking trail or campsite isn’t close to a street. Plus, the drop-off spot must be within a store’s delivery zone.All you need to do is drop a pin in Google Maps from within Domino’s mobile app t...
