There Are Now 15,000 Deepfake Videos on Social Media. Yes, You Should Worry.
Analyzing videos from around the Web, a company called Deeptrace has determined there are almost 15,000 deepfakes in existence (14,678 to be exact), which is a significant increase from just 7,964 they found a year ago. That is a whopping 84% increase. And the problem is getting worse.


Neural Turtle Graphics for Modeling City Road Layouts
Researchers propose Neural Turtle Graphics (NTG), a novel generative model for spatial graphs, and demonstrate its applications in modeling city road layouts. Specifically, They represent the road layout using a graph where nodes in the graph represent control points and edges in the graph represent road segments.

On Learning Symmetric Locomotion
Human and animal gaits are often symmetric in nature. By encouraging symmetric motion, the learning may be faster, converge to more efficient solutions, and be more aesthetically pleasing. Researchers describe, compare, and evaluate four practical methods for encouraging motion symmetry.
