Friday Links!

From Wally, and this is really quite wonderful: An AI invented a bunch of new paint colors that are hilariously wrong. Next, and these are beautiful, it's These rare color photos of Paris were shot 100 years ago, and they’re amazing. This is very impressive: Image-to-Image Demo.

From C. Lee, and this sounds very promising: Hitachi’s breast cancer screening method promises less pain. Now, a slew of links:
“I misspoke”, a weaselly phrase
Dangerous shortage of essential antibiotics is all about $$
The animals that look helpless but are secretly fearsome

Also from C. Lee, and it's widespread (I think George may have this, actually): The Mystery of the Wasting Housecats.

From Lummox JR, and this is a fascinating story: The Lost Typefaces of W.A. Dwiggins.

From Chris Meadowcraft, and I think Eli is going to try this: Watch a boxer beat up a tennis ball hanging from his hat. Also, and this is utterly fascinating, it's The colors of Mister Rogers’ cardigan sweaters, 1979-2001.

From Steven Davis, and this is very fun: Makin’ Moves: A Wild Animated Dance Short by Kouhei Nakama.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and this is a happy update to a sad story: Whatever happened to Star Wars Kid? The sad but inspiring story behind one of the first victims of cyberbullying.
