This week I was working with our software studio where they are developing a web application using Kendo React UI. Our discussion went into Material Design, a design language developed by Google in 2014. There is something new called Material You where the article on “Android’s underappreciated design revolution” goes into more detail. I like the idea of having a dynamic theme engine like this one.   

Why is there such a fuss with AI image generators like Stable Diffusion? Consider that any tool (Adobe Illustrator, etc.) can be used to create unethical and inappropriate images. 

The final article from the U.S. Space Force director of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance makes the case that the data is available, but the challenge remains to effectively use the data. The Pentagon has more than 685 AI projects?!

Autumn is here.  Make sure to enjoy the weather while it lasts!

  • This Uncensored AI Art Tool Can Generate Fantasies – and Nightmares. Open source project Stable Diffusion allows anyone to conjure images with algorithms, but some fear it will be used to create unethical horrors. (Wired)
  • Space Force’s Gagnon says analysis trumps data collection for intel. Successful military operations must move beyond data collection to focus on rapid and thorough analysis of information streams, according to the U.S. Space Force director of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance.
