Nvidia releases one-of-a-kind AI tool



Nvidia has made another attempt to give flat images more depth. The company has shifted its focus to editing after transforming 2D photographs into 3D scenes, models, and films.

The approach, dubbed 3D MoMa, could provide game developers with an easy way to change pictures and scenes. Photogrammetry, which captures measurements from images, is commonly used for this.

Through inverse rendering, 3D MoMa speeds up the process. By analyzing still photographs, this method employs AI to estimate a scene’s physical properties, such as geometry and illumination. After that, the images are reassembled in a realistic 3D format.

“The NVIDIA 3D MoMa rendering pipeline uses the machinery of modern AI and the raw computational horsepower of NVIDIA GPUs to quickly produce 3D objects that creators can import, edit, and extend without limitation in existing tools by formulating every piece of the inverse rendering problem as a GPU-accelerated differentiable component,” Lubeke said.

3D MoMa creates items as triangle meshes, a format that’s easy to alter using common software. On a single NVIDIA Tensor Core GPU, the models are built in under an hour

The Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference (CVPR) in New Orleans this week featured 3D MoMa. Nvidia engineers utilized the method to graphically represent jazz in honor to the musical genre’s roots. Hundreds of photographs of trumpets, trombones, saxophones, drums, and clarinets were originally gathered. The photos were then rebuilt into 3D representations via 3D MoMa. After that, the instruments were reworked and given new materials. For example, a cheap plastic trumpet was converted into a magnificent gold trumpet. From the brass instruments reflecting brightly to the drum skins absorbing light, the company claims that all of the instruments reacted to light like they would in the real world. Finally, an animated scene was created using the 3D objects.

Although 3D MoMa is still in the works, Nvidia believes it will allow game developers and other designers to swiftly change 3D objects and then place them in any virtual setting.

Artsies Collective is a beautiful NFT project



Two sisters, Juju and Natacha, who are respectively a visual artist and a life coach, co-founded and produced the arts, fashion, and events non-profit organization known as Artsies Collective.

“Our first collection of 5,555 Fine Art digital collectibles can now be found on the ETH blockchain.”

These collectibles were made using 301+ hand drawn traits and 55 original pictures created by the artist Juju. Artsies are people who are influenced by things such as liberation, pop art, fashion, fluidity, gaming, anime, and popular culture, all of which are merged into a whimsical, hybrid-utopian realm.

An Artsy membership grants the holder access to an online art hub, educational mentorships, and exclusive worldwide extraordinary art, fashion, and music events both in real life and on the web

‍ “Our goal is to provide mentorship in the areas of art, mental health, and the web, as well as opportunities for up-and-coming artists to display their work in an online gallery. This will allow us to empower creatives from the inside out. Priority consideration for exhibiting in our online gallery is given to holders. Collectors are given exclusive and early access to performances by these up-and-coming artists.”

The 5,555 NFTs are the product of an automatic computer generation based on more than 150 hand-drawn originals. In the year 2017, Juju launched the very first Artsy, and three years later, in 2021, they offered Artsy to the digital globe.

“You can boost your chances of being added to our Whitelist by taking part in our games, challenges, and artistic competitions that are hosted on Discord. Whitelist statuses are bestowed manually upon deserving individuals who are active participants in the ARTSIES COLLECTIVE community and who make significant contributions to the expansion of our initiative. In addition to that, those members of our community who demonstrate the most originality will be rewarded.”

TerraZero announces metaverse collaboration



TerraZero Technologies Inc., a Metaverse technology company and interactive experience studio, worked with Atlantic Records and Jason Derulo for an immersive activation in Decentraland.

The Metaverse is flooded with various brands. Despite the fact that there is a limitless supply of creative alternatives, very few people engage with their audiences in ways that go beyond ordinary marketing efforts. Very few famous people actively interact with their fans in the digital space without any boundaries.

TerraZero Technologies, a Metaverse and technology startup, teamed with Atlantic Records to spread the label’s activations across different Metaverse worlds. Atlantic and TerraZero teamed with Jason Derulo on unique Metaverse activations.

Recreate Jason Derulo’s music video for “Slidin'” in Decentraland as an experience produced by TerraZero, premiere the video, give fans a chance to style the environment themselves, and give away an exclusive Metaverse pool party to one lucky fan and their friends.

Decentraland hosts the event and music video debut on June 29

Jason Derulo: “I would’ve done anything for this kind of relationship with my idols.” “The Metaverse and how people can come together… TerraZero and what we developed together are the Internet’s future. I’ve always been a gamer, which has influenced my music and profession. Being an avatar in the Metaverse and communicating with others directly shows who I am beyond the screen and speakers. It’s unreal but real.”

Jason will attend the premiere as his TerraZero-created avatar, making this activation unique. Jason’s avatar will appear at Decentraland Metaverse places leading up to the premiere, which TerraZero will capture in “limitless worlds”

The concept, created by TerraZero’s Chief Metaverse Officer Ryan Kieffer and Chief Experience Officer Brandon F. Johnson, merges real-world individuals like Jason Derulo with eternally open-ended stories and moments that would never be feasible, let alone interactive and social, in any other media.
