What is Computer Graphics?

The term computer graphics includes almost everything
on computers that is not text or sound.
Today almost every computer can do some graphics,
and people have even come to expect to control their computer
through icons and pictures rather than just by typing.

Here in our lab at the Program of Computer Graphics,
we think of computer graphics as drawing pictures on computers,
also called rendering.
The pictures can be photographs, drawings, movies, or simulations —
pictures of things which do not yet exist and maybe could never exist.
Or they may be pictures from places we cannot see directly,
such as medical images from inside your body.

We spend much of our time improving the way
computer pictures can simulate real world scenes.
We want images on computers to not just look more realistic,
but also to BE more realistic in their colors,
the way objects and rooms

Microsoft invests in PsiQuantum, a startup which is building the world’s first useful quantum computer

Microsoft invests in PsiQuantum, a startup which is building the world’s first useful quantum computer 1

Microsoft has been working on quantum computers for several years now. Last year, Microsoft announced Azure Quantum, a full-stack, open cloud ecosystem that will bring the benefits of quantum computing organizations. Microsoft launched Quantum Network, a global community of individuals and organizations working together to advance quantum computing. The Microsoft Quantum Network members will work with Microsoft to learn about, research, and launch quantum computing applications and hardware supported with access to the Quantum Development Kit, vital research and experts, exclusive access to Azure services, and workshops on quantum programming and algorithm development.

Yesterday, Telegraph reported that Microsoft’s venture capital arm M12 invested in PsiQuantum, a startup with the goal to build the world’s first useful quantum computer out of conventional silicon chips that process information using individual photons as well as electronics. This means that every single component of the quantum computer is made by the same factories and

I want a gadget that does this: Open Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

Re: I want a gadget that does this


Trevor Carpenter wrote:

When I am shooting macros on a flat surface I would like a tool like this to assist me. I want something that starts as a flat pane B-C or A2 to C but very easily moves to be A to C with a number of incremental steps en-route. The camera will sit on the A to C plane preferably supported at the C/bottom end. I currently achieve the same purpose with some balancing of objects but nothing I use easily moves from the lower to the upper plane . If i am shooting, insects sudden movement is not a good thing. I feel there must be a commonly used object or a specialised item that will do this for me but I can’t think of anything. Any ideas.

For tabletop close-ups, I’ve

Wildscreen’s Arkive project was launched in 2003 and grew to become the world’s biggest encyclopaedia of life on Earth.

With the help of over 7,000 of the world’s best wildlife filmmakers and photographers, conservationists and scientists, featured multi-media fact-files for more than 16,000 endangered species.

Freely accessible to everyone, over half a million people every month, from over 200 countries, used Arkive to learn and discover the wonders of the natural world.

Since 2013 Wildscreen was unable to raise sufficient funds from trusts, foundations, corporates and individual donors to support the year-round costs of keeping Arkive online. Therefore, the charity had been using its reserves to keep the project online and was unable to fund any dedicated staff to maintain Arkive, let alone future-proof it, for over half a decade. Despite appeals for support, just 85 of our 5.6 million users in 2018 made a donation.

As a small
