Halo Debuts New 'World Of Halo' Stop-Motion Video Series, Episode 1 Available Now

While we continue to wait for a Halo Infinite release date other than the anticipated November 2021 window, the team over at 343 Industries has a different sort of Master Chief-inspired project to share. Using the Jazwares action figure line, the stop-motion series called World of Halo just debuted its first episode. You can watch it below. Spoiler alert: it's pretty awesome. The Jazwares line is surprisingly detailed for being a mere four inches tall and seeing them in action in this format is kind of cool to see as a Halo fan myself. From a fight to death with the iconic energy sword to seeing some of the most recognizable enemies in the Halo-verse, the first episode of this series has us pretty jazzed to see what's next. Especially being a massive collector.  [embedded content] Master Chief's badassery, glowing energy swords, grunts screaming in panic - what more could you want? Other than a Halo Infinite gameplay trailer, but don't worry about that. 343 Industries has recently confirmed that a new gameplay reveal is coming this Summer to show off what the team has been working on since criticism hit about its next-gen graphics.  In other Halo news, 343 recently shared off a new screenshot from the main campaign, which you can see here, detailing the various PC-specific settings for resolution. The team also confirmed that Halo Infinite will include cross-progression and crossplay between Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC, so that anyone can enjoy the latest game without worried about being tied to one specific platform.  To learn more about Halo Infinite before the gameplay trailer drops in the coming months, you can scope out our dedicated game hub.

    Has twitter more analysis to do after algorithm shows possible racial bias

    Twitter is learning first-hand concerning the challenges of eliminating racial bias in algorithms. The social network’s Liz Kelley said the business had “more analysis” to accomplish after cryptographic engineer Tony Arcieri conducted an experiment suggesting Twitter’s algorithm was biased in prioritizing photos. When attaching photos of Barack Mitch and Obama McConnell to tweets, Twitter appeared to exclusively highlight McConnell’s face – Obama only popped up when Arcieri inverted the colors, making pores and skin a non-issue.

    Others tried reversing name and photo orders to no avail. A higher-contrast smile did work, Intertheory’s Kim Sherrell found. Scientist Matt Blaze, meanwhile, pointed out that the priority appeared to vary according to the official Twitter app used. Tweetdeck was more neutral, for example.

    Kelley said that Twitter had checked for bias before utilizing the current algorithm, but “didn’t find evidence” at that time. She added that Twitter would open source its algorithm studies to greatly help others “review and replicate.”

    There’s no guarantee that may correct this Twitter. However, the experiment does show the real dangers of algorithmic bias irrespective of intent. It might shove people from the limelight, even though they’re central to a social media marketing post or linked news article. You might have to wait an extended while before issues such as this are exceptionally rare.
