Wow, attempting to add tables of contents and page numbers the way our professor specified for our final report assignment has shown me for the first time just how buggy and obtuse Word really is.

Indeed! I ended up creating an actual 2-by-entries table with bottom borders on each cell, then title in the left cell, left-aligned, and page number in the right cell, right aligned... Then just update everything manually lol

Photos I took with the new Google Camera app while on my nature walk of sorts around Lawrence Tech this morning. I played with lens blur a bit; I also took some HDR pictures, a photosphere, a panorama, and one picture of my ugly mug (lens blurred, no less) for good measure.

A few of these pictures might actually make for some decent wallpapers.

Over the Easter weekend I finally got around to implementing a first prototype of an idea I've had for a while, which aims to bring some state of the art computer vision techniques to mobile devices.

Deep Vision uses the implementation of convolutional neural networks provided by libccv to classify images. So it'll try to figure out whatever is the principal object in an image your provide it with.

At the moment it just has a sample classification database from the ImageNet project, containing 1000 assorted items, however in the future I'd like to see specific classifiers for different tasks (e.g. a classifier trained purely on different plants, so when you're out for a hike and you want to know what something is you can just point your phone at it and find out.)

Unlike something like Google Goggles it's doing all the classification on the phone itself without needing to upload the image to any external services.

The video below provides a quick demo of it in action and you can also grab a click package here to play with it yourself: http://mikeasoft.com/~mike/com.mikeasoft.deepvision_0.1.3_armhf.click

Source code can be found at: https://launchpad.net/deepvision 

It was just hacked together over the weekend, so it's still a little rough in places but all the core functionality should work reasonably well :).

It turns out that getting the dual-boot to work is quite easy
Testing Ubuntu for phones is now even simpler with an application that is capable of installing the new operating system from Canonical without having...

I got the ribs and was quite disappointed. They came out tough, dry and chewy, with a hard shell. They weren't very tasty, either. For $11 for a 1/3 slab, they were quite the letdown.

Very good food and service. In particular, I like the house dressing they use on their salads. Food is brought out quickly and hot.
