There’s good reason for excitement — these models are technically impressive, and they can certainly help us accomplish certain tasks more easily.

Demonstranti v Hongkongu matou kamery. Obličej si halí svou vlastní tváří -

Roušky, potápěčské brýle i masky připomínající vlastní obličej. Demonstranti v Hongkongu se čím dál víc snaží vyzrát na policejní kamery.
