#Jigsaw (erede di Google Ideas) è una compagnia di Google dedicata a contrastare le minacce alle “società aperte”, combattendo “estremismo” e “disinformazione” online e proteggendo attivisti e media “indipendenti”.

Il progetto, ideato da Jared Cohen (ex responsabile del Dipartimento di Stato USA) in realtà favorisce la censura online in patria, mentre offre gli strumenti per evitarla (e sostenere gli oppositori) in paesi “ostili”.

#Subdivision schemes don't only help finite element methods. In a recent paper, we present a #mathart application of creating #weaving patterns from said schemes. Furthermore, we extent these patterns to create a #jigsaw puzzle. Here's a thread.🧵1/13 doi.org/10.1080/175134…
Computer simulations for, e.g., the weather, solve complex problems on a 2D domain. They mostly do so by splitting the domain into a finite set of smaller and simpler elements on which the simulation can be run fast and efficiently. This uses subdivision schemes. 2/13
If the output domain should be triangles, there is the Loop subdivision (see image from previous tweet), the butterfly🦋 scheme, or the √3 scheme. For output made of quadrilaterals, use mid-edge, Doo-Sabin, or Catmull-Clark. Irregular input gives irregular output, though. 3/13
Today I'd like to talk about the shader I made for The Adventures of Wolf and Hood. It's what gives the puzzle pieces their realistic look but it also allows for a cool visual effect when you complete a puzzle. 1/9 #screenshotsaturday #gamedev #indiedev #jigsaw #madewithunity
The shader is actually pretty simple, just a main texture plus a shadow and normal map derived from the shape of the puzzle pieces. The cool bit is how these are smoothed away around a position in space (the final mouse position) with the effect radius controlled by script. 2/9
I also add an expanding particle system to give it a bit more interest and to make it look like the particles are smoothing out the joins between the pieces. I use a sprite mask to keep the particles inside the puzzle frame. 3/9
This week we’ll take a ramble through our Beranger collection ... jump on board! #Beranger #Watercolours #IrishArt
Gabriel Beranger, Dutch-born artist, moved to Ireland in 1750 and ran a print shop and artist’s warehouse in Dublin. He spent much of his time sketching the antiquities of Ireland.
From 1779-83 he was one of the main artists employed by the Hibernian Antiquarian Society, a predecessor of the Royal Irish Academy, to draw the ancient monuments of Ireland.
#38 #TheFloridaProject 3,5/5 30 menit berlalu gue hanya melihat penggambaran kenakalan anak-anak, namun kebelakang makin intens menyentuh sisi lain kehidupan single parent, Ekonomi dan krama keluarga Amerika. Tapi best supporting role untuk Willem Dafoe kok agak berlebihan yah?
#39 #JusticeLeague 3/5 jadi ini cuman buat ngelawan Steppenwolf, Batman dkk bakar dupa dan melakukan ritual klenik untuk membangkitkan Superman dari kuburan? ..... hhhmmmm. Beklah.
#40 #TheSquare 3/5 Perwakilan Swedia untuk Oscar 2018 ini agak membosankan, 2 masalah utama disajikan, pekerjaan di museum seni dan hp yang hilang berbuntut masalah panjang, yg menarik tampilan Terry Notary sbg Apes di gala dinner dan anak kecil yg dituduh mencuri hp. Sisanya meh
