Day 26 - Halloween

20th February 2023 | Tags: Technology, Deepfake, AI

As usual, this morning we met at 8:30 a.m. with Tamara and Robin in the Airbnb and headed to the office in Chinatown. We computer sciences worked on the project for the start-up and the mediamatics continued editing the video for the Swiss embassy.
Afterwards we went to an Asian restaurant for lunch, the food was very good and as always plentiful. In the afternoon we continued working while Tamara and Nick went to get costumes for the Halloween parade, we had two ideas, the first was to dress up as Top Gun Maverick, the second as prisoners, fortunately they found the Top Gun costumes. Around 4:30 p.m. we left the office and split up, Chiara and Noemi went to buy glasses and Florin, Sven and I (Simon) went to Target to buy water. Once home Tamara and Nick joined us to give us our costumes and we got ready for the parade.

Around 6 o’clock Robin and Philippe joined us and we went to catch the subway, walking down the street we had already seen many people in costume. In the parade we saw all possible kinds of costumes, for example: zombies, ghosts, witches, skeletons, Mexican costumes Star Wars and Marvel characters etc.
Unfortunately at the beginning of the parade we couldn’t find places where we could see well as there were so many people but during the parade it started to rain lightly and people started to leave and by the end of the parade we were in the front line. I found the atmosphere of the parade was very nice and fun, and I really liked the fact that we all dressed up as Top Gun. After the parade was over we went to eat at Shake Shack, unfortunately there was a bit of a column because of the parade but the food as always was great.
