+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.

Probabilistic programming does in 50 lines of code what used to take thousands.

Update on the transition of +Freebase and the new Knowledge Graph API plans
 
As previously announced [1], Freebase will be going read-only next Tuesday, March 31st. This means that the website will no longer accept edits and the MQL write API will be retired. 

In that announcement we also promised updates on the Wikidata import review tool and transition plan for the Freebase Search API & Suggest Widget to a Knowledge Graph-based solution.

The Primary Sources tool will have two parts: a front end integrated into the Wikidata User Interface and a back end running on Wikimedia labs to provide data to the front end. Shortly after read-only, we will start with a small set of data in order to get feedback from the community and refine the tool.
- Screenshot and more info: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Primary_sources_tool 
- Code will be available by the end of the month here: https://github.com/google/primarysources
- FAQ by the Wikidata community: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Help:FAQ/Freebase 
- Discussion: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiProject_Freebase

The new Knowledge Graph API should be publicly available as a beta sometime during calendar Q2. We will ensure that there are at least three full months between the launch of that beta and the retirement of the current Freebase APIs, so this does mean the original June 30th retirement date will be pushed out. In the meantime, here are a few more details about the new API:
- Enables searching for Knowledge Graph entities by text or MID
- Returns name, subtitle, image, description and URL for candidate matches
- Results can also be restricted to a specific language or type
- Uses schema.org vocabulary in the JSON-LD format
- Companion Freebase Suggest-like Javascript library

Turns out the Support Library is very humbly named considering how much value it offers! Learn more from this overview by +Ian Lake 
 
Android Support Library: the Library, the Myth, the Legend

The Android Support Library (http://goo.gl/pZuTxg) has been around for a while, but does anyone know exactly what is actually in the Android Support Library? +Ian Lake gives you an overview of what is included in the Android Support Library and how it can help you build apps faster!

How about #voiceactions  ?

How the "There's an app for that" mentality leads to bad design:
Author and designer Golden Krishna believes that we’re quickly becoming a society that’s obsessed with our screens, and that the companies making and marketing apps aren’t doing us any favors.

"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.

I've been thinking lately how things related to the internet seem to move really, really slowly. People think of the internet as fast and progressive but I think many people will agree that ideas based on the internet can take many years to come to fruition, if ever.
