"We're All Mad Here…."
The media are filled with reports that MIT technology might be used to help in the search for BigFoot, the name given to an ape-like creature that some believe can be found in the forests of the Pacific northwest. Bigfoot research, if that’s the right term, is stalled. Matt Knapp, who runs a major Bigfoot web site told Boston Magazine’s Steve Annear that “[t]he facts are that in terms of progress, the Bigfoot research community has ultimately made none. We are no closer now to proving these creatures exist than we were 40 years ago.” Some might take that as suggesting the creatures don’t exist. Instead, Knapp believes that “Eurlarian Video Magnification”, technology invented by MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, could help the analysis purported Bigfoot videos.
