Google Uses AI to Recreate Lost Klimt Painting. But Should They?

The latest painting to receive the reconstructed-by-AI treatment is Gustav Klimt's 1900 painting "Philosophy". The Washington Post reports: For decades, only black-and-white photographs of "Philosophy" existed. Now, thanks to artificial intelligence, we can see the work in full color. But does the re-creation really look like the original? Does it even look like a Klimt?

NBC: 'You Probably Don't Need to Rely on a VPN Anymore'

NBC News writes: VPNs, or virtual private networks, continue to be used by millions of people as a way of masking their internet activity by encrypting their location and web traffic. But on the modern internet, most people can safely ditch them, thanks to the widespread use of encryption that has made public internet connections far less of a security threat, cybersecurity experts say. "Most commercial VPNs are snake oil from a security standpoint," said Nicholas Weaver, a cybersecurity lecture...
