When MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab researchers showed videos of a drumstick hitting and brushing through various objects, subjects were fooled into believing that the sounds they heard actually came from the objects and materials on screen. They did not. Instead, a computer programmed to analyze the video and apply the correct sounds from its own library of samples chose the audio clips for all the videos. And the subjects were none the wiser. The team’s work is described in a new paper released Monday and being presented next week at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference in Las Vegas. To be clear, there really isn’t any such thing as an…
