Awesome Falsehoods, Neural Network Vision, Toy and Family Robots, and Over-Engineered Software
- Awesome Falsehoods — great collections of lies that we programmers tell ourselves about such things as what email addresses are, what networks do, and (my favourite) time zones.
- How Do Neural Networks See The World (YouTube) — short and interesting video explainer.
- Anki Cozmo — toy robot, compare to NXROBO’s BIG-i the first personalized family robot. BIG-i is a natural-interaction robot with mobility, 3D vision, voice programming, and active perception. It can manage smart appliances to suit your needs.
- Ten Modern Software Over-Engineering Mistakes — 3. Everything is Generic is my current jam^w nightmare as I write some software to support research. “Should it X or Y?” “Yes, we don’t know yet, so both” is always the answer!
