It starts going dog-shaped at around 1:45, and we're fully floating in a cosmic background radiation froth of doglizards by 3:45.
Flynn and co's new approach is to train a machine vision algorithm to work out what the new image should look like having been trained on a vast dataset of sequential images.
They trained their algorithm using "images of street scenes captured by a moving vehicle." Indeed, they use 100,000 of these sequences as a training data set.
They then tested it by removing one frame from a sequence of Street View images and asking it to reproduce it by looking only at the other images in the sequence. Finally, they compare the synthesized image with the one that was removed, giving them a kind of gold standard to contrast it with.
The results are impressive. "Overall, our model produces plausible outputs that are difficult to immediately distinguish from the original imagery," say Flynn and co.
It comes with a $75/month subscription fee, because their actual business model is "capture your customers' personal information so that they can turn your customers into their product."
Remember when companies used to try to make money by selling you things, instead of by selling you out?
The UK intentionally let exporters continue selling equipment for Saddam Hussein's poison gas factory in the 1980s.

We must set a goal of (roughly) zero greenhouse gas emissions, in a decade or two, not a century.
(I understand this as meaning zero net emissions, counting what the Earth can absorb in a steady state.)
Tunisia's terrorist threat comes from local jihadis who fought in other countries and then returned. Often they train in Libya.
Aerial attacks on PISSI in Syria can't do much good in the absence of a ground force that can fight PISSI in Syria.
