Custom Voice Actions launched with an initial set of Android app developers! Go to https://g.co/VoiceActionsForm if you have an app in Play Store and would like to share some grammar ideas with Google.

Custom Voice Actions

Looking for new, interesting ways for your users to engage with your app? Today, we launched our first set of partners for custom Google voice actions on Android. This feature will enable people to say things like “Ok Google, listen to NPR” or “Ok Google, show attractions near me on TripAdvisor.” We’re currently piloting custom voice actions with a select group of partners, but we plan to open it up more widely in the future — and we’d love to hear your ideas for actions you’d like to implement. If you have an app in the Google Play store, visit https://g.co/VoiceActionsForm to tell us your ideas.

You can also visit https://g.co/VoiceActions for information about voice actions that you can already implement today.

I can hardly wait to speak to my phone, "Show me recipes of Nasu-iri-natto-tororo-soba on COOKPAD" in my native language!

+Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have developed a probabilistic programming language, dubbed Picture, that can be used to infer the 3D shape of an object from 2D images with as little as 50 lines of code. Instead of requiring photo-realistic models which must be matched to input images, Picture can be used to compare hypothesized scenes to observations, using a hierarchy of more abstract image representations to determine the correct representation for an image.

This method of “inverse graphics”, deducing the likeliest 3D model from 2D visual information, incorporates previous machine learning research and readjusts probabilities based on available training data. The researchers believe that this method of probabilistic programming will alleviate the re-writing of code when tackling different computer-vision problems. Read the full paper at http://goo.gl/WKkXZ2
Probabilistic programming does in 50 lines of code what used to take thousands.

Henry Kissinger gave a talk at Google and we got an oppty to ask him questions. The first one +Eric Schmidt asked was mine, so there you have it, my claim to fame :) The question and answer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wooGL__-OvA#t=54m37s
I hope Kissinger will expand on the answer and write a book about it next. The "World Order" was truly an excellent reading. Would love a follow-up. 
 
Dr Kissinger talks about the new world order.  His answer on Iran is frightening starting at 31 minutes.

"The future of structured data isn't about understanding what a thing is, it’s about understanding what a thing can do"

So opines author +Craig Bradford is this great deck from SMX Munich.

Great because - as per the pull-quote above - Craig's focus is on the (still barely-discussed) realms of app deep linking, app indexing, cards (especially of the dynamic variety) and schema.org actions.

Craig Bradford, SMX Munich The future of structured data isn’t about understanding what a thing is, it’s about understanding what a thing can do. It is allowing us to move past "strings to things" and into actions and anticipatory search. In this presentation I cover: How structured data has changed (strings to things) How to get apps indexed by Google Using structured data to say what a thing can do (things to actions) Email markup for events an...

Google's Santa Tracker for Android is now open source on GitHub at https://github.com/google/santa-tracker-android. To help with user engagement, the app uses the App Indexing API (http://goo.gl/aZABr2) to enable autocomplete support for Santa Tracker games from Google Search. This is done using deep linking. In this video, +Jarek Wilkiewicz demonstrates how the feature works in Santa Tracker, and explains how you can implement it in your own Android app.

"Writing is nature’s way of letting you know how sloppy your thinking is."
 
"The further a language departs from simple math, the more it hinders the abstraction needed..." #readingToday  

The key to understanding complexity is abstraction, which means rising above the code level. The best language for being simple and precise is math — the kind taught in elementary math courses: sets, functions, and simple logic. To make it easier to build tools for checking specs, most formal specification languages add things that are not found in elementary math classes — for example, types. However, the further a language departs from simple math, the more it hinders the abstraction needed to help us understand a complex program or system.
Architects draw detailed plans before a brick is laid or a nail is hammered. But few programmers write even a rough sketch of what their programs will do before they start coding. Some may argue that the analogy between specifications and blueprints is flawed because programs aren’t like buildings: Tearing down walls is hard but changing code is easy. But changing code is hard — especially if we don’t want to introduce bugs.
