The Art of Complex Problem Solving. 3D Editing of 2D Photos. Yeah, It's Possible. Computer engineers have created software that could make it impossible to tell if photos are real. A team of researchers from Carnegie Mellon University and UC Berkeley have invented a new type of editing software that allows 3D editing of 2D photos. And it's pretty amazing. Using publicly available 3D images from the internet as a proxy, the software creates highly accurate replications of a 2D-photographed object's hidden area. This gives a photo editor the ability to manipulate the full physical range of their subject.

"Instead of simply editing 'what we see' in the photograph, our goal is to manipulate 'what we know' about the scene behind the photograph,” the team of computer engineers write in their study. On August 13, the 3D photo editing system will be showcased at the SIGGRAPH 2014 Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques in Vancouver. You have to watch the video to really appreciate what they've done here: ARCHIVE PHOTO INSERTS FROM MOTALKO.

Processing.org. 10 ejemplos de visualización de datos urbanos. @manufernandez La complejidad de un entorno diverso y cambiante como es la ciudad, suma de interacciones física y digitales, produce una cantidad enorme de datos. La disponibilidad cada vez mayor de herramientas para generar, captar, almacenar, gestionar y analizar estos datos abre un amplio espectro de posibilidades en torno a esos big data. La apertura de los datos públicos (ámbito en el que encajan la mayor parte de los datos de una ciudad en los que podemos pensar: transporte público, flujos de tráfico, agua, residuos, utilización del espacio, actividad comercial, etc.) ofrece la posibilidad de transformarlos en información mucho más útil que la mera agregación desordenada y puramente estadística.
