Proud sponsor of the Parkland school shooting hoax. Who knew it wasn’t just a word?
Simunition® is the pioneer and world leader in providing military, law enforcement and approved range members with the most realistic and non-lethal force-on-force, short range, simulation training system. For the past 15 years, military and police officers around the world have placed their trust in Simunition® to deliver realistic training. Professionals whose lives depend on the best training possible know that they can always count on Simunition® FX® marking cartridges and SecuriBlank® cartridges to provide them with the most effective close range, reality-based training system.
Simunition® has raised the bar again by introducing a completely non-toxic Toxfree® primer as an option to all its training rounds. The FX® system is comprised of FX® marking munitions, weapon conversion kits and personal protective equipment. All three essential components are supported by a comprehensive Simunition® Scenario and Safety Certification Training Course.
I’m not sure why they use fuzzy fake sims for hoax events, when clear, crisp sims are available at a mouse click.
I am certain it makes no sense at all to use real people.
The ability of AI to generate fake visuals is not yet mainstream knowledge, but a new website — ThisPersonDoesNotExist.com — offers a quick and persuasive education. The site is the creation of Philip Wang, a software engineer at Uber, and uses research released last year by chip designer Nvidia to create an endless stream of fake portraits. The algorithm behind it is trained on a huge dataset of real images, then uses a type of neural network known as a generative adversarial network (or GAN) to fabrica
The scene opened on a room with a red sofa, a potted plant and the kind of bland modern art you’d see on a therapist’s wall. In the room was Michelle Obama, or someone who looked exactly like her. Wearing a low-cut top with a black bra visible underneath, she writhed lustily for the camera and flashed her unmistakable smile.
No need to use real people as models and dress them up later to hide them. Just use NVIDIA’s latest software. (h/t Simon)
Imagine playing a game like Skyrim or a sports title where the characters you encounter look like real people or creatures, and not rendered graphics. If implemented correctly, it could add a new level of immersion to gaming. It may not be far off, either. NVIDIA released a paper over the weekend detailing a new training methodology for generating unique and realistic looking faces using a generative adversarial network (GAN).

Coincidentally, NVIDIA was recently mentioned for autonomous cars.
Simulation technology has been progressing over the last 16 years to the point where the threshold of the simulation has blurred. It is logical, therefore, to assume that major lighting and rendering issues on CGI bodies that appear in the media have also been reduced.
