Generating high-fidelity video portraits based on speech audio is of great importance to various applications like digital human, film-making and video dubbing. Many researchers tackle the task of audio-driven talking face or video portrait generation by using deep generative models. It enables free-view control with higher image quality compared to explicit methods, which is suitable for the video portrait generation task. NeRF in the dynamic human head modeling from single-view data in a video-driven manner. However, an accurate explicit 3D model is still required in their settings. Moreover, they model torso consistently with the head, which leads to unstable results. AD-NeRF for audio-driven talking head synthesis. In particular, they build two individual sets of NeRF for head and torso modeling conditioned on audio input. Such a straightforward pipeline suffers from head-torso separation during the render stage, making generated results unnatural. Based on previous studies, we identify two key challenges for incorporating NeRF into video portrait generation: 1) Each facial part’s appearance and moving patterns are intrinsically connected but substantially different, especially when associated with audios.
How long does it take to become a paleontologist? Paleontologists usually get an undergraduate degree in geology or biology and then a master's or Ph.D. It would take between six and 10 years to become a paleontologist. Do paleontologists study dinosaurs? A paleontologist is a scientist who studies fossils of organisms that have been dead for thousands or hundreds of thousands of years. Since this includes animal and plant life, it also includes dinosaurs. Is paleontology a good career? Paleontology is a difficult discipline to work in, mainly because there aren't many job prospects. It can be difficult to find a paying job in the field. Many people with paleontology degrees end up doing this as a hobby while working in an environmental firm or oil company. Who was the first paleontologist ever? William Smith and Georges Cuvier are considered to be pioneers in the field, after they published their work in the 1800s. They discovered that rock layers of different areas could be compared by matching their fossils.
That means you don't need a powerful computer to run the types of applications you're used to -- the cloud will do it for you. Cloud computing services grew in number over 2009, but not without some obstacles. A few notable companies like Google and Microsoft had to deal with the customer fallout from service outages, one of the drawbacks to cloud computing. Despite the recession, 2009 was a good year for gamers. The triumph of the PlayStation 3 is our next trend. At the beginning of 2009, Sony's PlayStation 3 faced an uphill battle. In the United States, PS3 sales lagged behind Microsoft's Xbox 360. Nintendo's Wii console left the other two behind in the dust. Game journalists and enthusiasts had a host of reasons for Sony's lackluster market performance. Developing games for the console was hard, which meant fewer good games were available. The console was the most expensive on the market with no sign of a price break.|As it turns out, hair can add a lot of surface area to an animal, way more than you might initially guess. Riddle me this, Batman: How is a cat like a pingpong table? If you answered that they both have the same surface area, you are correct! Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology did a meta-analysis on more than two dozen studies about animals and surface measurements. Specifically, they wanted to know how hair affects the amount of surface area an animal has, how that animal gets dirty and how it manages to clean itself. They published their findings in the Journal of Experimental Biology. What did they learn? Well, besides the fact that your average sea otter has the same surface area as a professional hockey rink, they found that hair can aid in cleaning through two broad categories - renewable and nonrenewable strategies. Renewable strategies are passive (think eyelashes) while nonrenewable strategies require the animal to exert some energy to clean itself (think wet dog shaking itself off).
Ambassador Vadym Prystaiko was quoted as saying Ukraine was willing to be "flexible" over its goal to join the Atlantic military alliance. Prystaiko was quoted as saying when asked if Kyiv could change its position on NATO membership. In Washington, President Joe Biden's National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said an invasion could begin "any day now". U.S. officials said they could not confirm reports that U.S. Russia planned to invade on Wednesday. Sullivan said Washington would continue sharing what it learned with the world in order to deny Moscow the chance to stage a surprise "false flag" operation that could be a pretext for an attack. Sullivan added in a separate CBS interview. Biden spoke to his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Sunday and they agreed on the importance of continuing to pursue diplomacy and deterrence in response to Russia’s military build-up, the White House said after the call. Zelenskiy's office said he invited Biden to visit Ukraine soon. The White House declined to comment.
But hydrogen has some serious drawbacks that have slowed its adoption as an automotive fuel. Likewise, the light gas is difficult to store in large enough quantities to be useful for transportation. Many of the so-called hydrogen generators work in the same fashion: An onboard electrolysis device pulls water from a storage tank, and, using electricity generated by the car's alternator, splits the hydrogen and oxygen. The problem with these onboard generators is one of capacity. That energy has to come from somewhere, and in a car, that means a significant additional load is placed on the alternator. The car may be producing hydrogen fuel, but it's burning more energy than it creates. As a result, hydrogen generators typically produce miniscule amounts of the gas. Turbulence in a car engine's airflow can greatly affect the engine's efficiency. The action of the pistons sucks in a precise mix of fuel and air, which is then ignited and vented out through the exhaust.|Producing a corporate video or a product campaign, especially an animated one, can and will take a toll on your in-house teams who may not only have the skills to create an effective explainer in the first place, but also have a mountain of other responsibilities critical to your core business. Animated video production is a huge undertaking, and no matter how talented your in-house team may be, they simply might not have the proper resources, tools, skillset, and most importantly, the time to churn out quality animation you will be proud to show to the world. This is where an animated video company will be most beneficial. Hiring professionals to do the grunt work of production for you while you stay in the sidelines, with your inputs ready when needed, is the best path to take when it comes to creating an animated corporate video or product campaign. One of the best things about having an animated video company by your side is that you can choose to be as involved or as hands-off as you want to be with the actual production, leaving you with more time on your hands to perform your core responsibilities for your business.
