Four short links: 30 November 2017
Object Models, Open Source Voice Recognition, IoT OS, and High-Speed Robot Wars
- Object Models — a (very) brief run through the inner workings of objects in four very dynamic languages. Readable and informative. (via Simon Willison)
- Mozilla Releases Open Source Voice Recognition and Voice Data Set — we have included pre-built packages for Python, NodeJS, and a command-line binary that developers can use right away to experiment with speech recognition. Data set features samples from more than 20,000 people, reflecting a diversity of voices globally.
- FreeRTOS — Amazon adds sync and promises OTA updates. Very clever from Amazon: this is foundational software for IoT.
- Japanese Sumo Robots (YouTube) — omg, the speed of these robots. (via BoingBoing)
