The T. Rex probably couldn’t run, according to this AI-driven model

The University of Manchester used 3D modelling and machine learning to determine the top speed of the legendary Tyrannosaurus Rex — and it’s a bit of a let-down. The researchers built an algorithm that moves an accurate 3D model of the T. Rex from one point to another as fast as possible — and let’s just say the poor thing didn’t show a lot of get-up-and-go. Due to its massive size and weight, the T. Rex wasn’t really capable of running, and might not have been able to chase prey in the manner we were shown in Jurassic Park. The research…
