T-rex’s tiny arms were ‘to grip dinosaur mate’ during prehistoric sex sessions 0 94

T-REX males used their tiny arms to grip their female dinosaur mates during sex, scientists now believe.

The way the bones join up in a newly found, near perfect skeleton prove the stunted limbs supported strong muscles.

It means the arms, which have mystified boffins for decades, had a purpose and did not shrink because they were useless.

A team came to the conclusion after studying the fossil of Meraxes gigas, a new species, which grew to 36ft and weighed four tons.

Like T-rex, it had a giant head. But it was also ­decorated with crests, bumps, furrows and small horns.

The experts say the two dinos can be compared as they were similarly shaped predators, although they evolved to have tiny arms independently.

The fossil was found in Patagonia in Argentina, and lived 90million years ago — around 20million before Tyrannosaurus rex evolved.

It showed complete regions of the skeleton never seen before, such as the arms and legs and, say the scientists, contains a lot of novel information.

Project leader Dr Juan Canale said: “The skeleton shows large muscle insertions . . . so the arm had strong muscles. I am convinced those proportionally tiny arms had a function.

“The harder question is what exactly the functions were.

“Sex and balance are most likely.”

Dr Canale, of Ernesto Bachmann Palaeontological Museum in Neuquen, Argentina, added: “They may have used the arms for reproductive behaviour such as holding the female during mating or to support themselves to stand back up after a fall.”

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 42

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
