If you have a smartphone, you not only have a camera that you carry with you everywhere — you also have a high-definition video camcorder as well. Late model smartphones can shoot video up to 4K resolution and such footage benefits greatly from a feature-rich mobile video editor with pro-level features that is also easy enough for novices to learn and use. A good video editor ensures that the footage you capture at events for sharing with friends and family or on social media is compelling: It can direct you in how to order and trim clips, apply transitions and special effects, add music and voice-overs, and assist in continuity with themes and templates. Sure, you always have the option of using the default app built into your iPhone or Android phone, but if you’re intent on creating something unique, you may want to try some of the other apps you can use to best craft your cinematic narrative. We had a look at the video app landscape and chose the eight best video editing … [Read more...] about The best video editing apps for iOS and Android

This week, I interviewed Yuval Noah Harari, the author of three best-selling books about the history and future of our species, and Fei-Fei Li, one of the pioneers in the field of artificial intelligence. The event was hosted by the Stanford Center for Ethics and Society, the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence, and the Stanford Humanities Center. A transcript of the event follows, and a video is posted below. Nicholas Thompson: Thank you, Stanford, for inviting us all here. I want this conversation to have three parts: First, lay out where we are; then talk about some of the choices we have to make now; and last, talk about some advice for all the wonderful people in the hall. Yuval, the last time we talked, you said many, many brilliant things, but one that stuck out was a line where you said, “We are not just in a technological crisis. We are in a philosophical crisis.” So explain what you meant and explain how it ties to AI. Let's get going … [Read more...] about Will Artificial Intelligence Enhance or Hack Humanity?
The streets of Davos, Switzerland, were iced over on the night of January 25, 2018, which added a slight element of danger to the prospect of trekking to the Hotel Seehof for George Soros’ annual banquet. The aged financier has a tradition of hosting a dinner at the World Economic Forum, where he regales tycoons, ministers, and journalists with his thoughts about the state of the world. That night he began by warning in his quiet, shaking Hungarian accent about nuclear war and climate change. Then he shifted to his next idea of a global menace: Google and Facebook. “Mining and oil companies exploit the physical environment; social media companies exploit the social environment,” he said. “The owners of the platform giants consider themselves the masters of the universe, but in fact they are slaves to preserving their dominant position ... Davos is a good place to announce that their days are numbered.” Across town, a group of senior Facebook … [Read more...] about 15 Months of Fresh Hell Inside Facebook
Multiplayer gaming has been a staple of video games for decades. But while internet access has grown more reliable and faster for many people around the world, multiplayer gaming is not an exact science. Players often find their connections drop inexplicably. Companies find it hard to pull off a glitch-free launch of a brand new game that gets millions of players on its first day. Matchmaking can be frustrating as unskilled players are mixed with the skilled, resulting in a slaughter of the noobs, or new players. And yet online gaming isn’t static. It is moving on to greater heights. Google’s Phil Harrison (a speaker at our upcoming GamesBeat Summit 2019 event in Los Angeles on April 23-24) announced Stadia, a cloud gaming platform that taps the power of graphics processors in the data center to operate a game and enable players to play that game on any device, including PCs, consoles, tablets, or smartphones. All it needs is a fast data connection to the player. Above: … [Read more...] about The state of multiplayer gaming and how it’s going to change
