Contet-Aware Image Resizing

A new way to resize images based on the content, while maintaining the way “important areas” appear.

Watch the YouTube demonstration.

Cool Computer Science Stuff!

First, the simpler one. A really cool algorithm that finds holes of any shape in a given image, and “patches” them from an exiting bank of other images. This might be similar technology to Photosynth.

Second, a historical moment for Computer Science. It appears the first NP-Complete problem has been solved in polynomial time. They use some sort of “optical solution” and not a Turing machine, and the number of photons used is proportional to N^N. I don’t know if this will have deep theoretical implecations (haven’t read the article yet), but it’s interesting (to C.S geeks).
