Recreating photos in the style of famous artists

In another example of how Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) can be used to create interesting works of art, a group of German researchers have released the paper, A Neural Algorithm of Artistic Style (http://goo.gl/HsFR0C), that introduces a system that renders an input photo in the artistic style of a given piece of art while preserving its overall content.

In their paper, the authors describe how the representations of content and style in their Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) are separable, making it possible to use neural representations to separate and recombine content and style of arbitrary input images. To learn more, read the full paper. For access to their algorithm, visit http://goo.gl/jB7ovU

Monumental piece of writing. 
The world belongs to people who code. Those who don’t understand will be left behind.

Android Design Support Library: bringing material design to life
The Design library brings a number of important material design components to all Android 2.1 or higher devices (http://goo.gl/KZBhH2). You’ll find a navigation drawer view, a floating label TextInputLayout, a floating action button, snackbar, tabs, and a motion and scroll framework to tie them together.

You’ll be able to build your navigation drawer’s items using a menu resource file and connect a TabLayout with a ViewPager with just a single call to setupWithViewPager().

AppBarLayout lets you set scroll flags to control how views such as your Toolbar scroll on and off the screen or extend it farther with CollapsingToolbarLayout to resize title text size, pin views as the app bar collapses, and add parallax effects - again just a few lines of XML.

With components that match the material design spec out of the box and the tools you need to provide rich behavior between views via the new CoordinatorLayout, the Design library gives you the building blocks needed to build a modern, great looking Android app without building everything from scratch.

MOVI is a Kickstarter project for an speech recognition hardware device, in the form of an Arduino shield, that can enable voice commands to be incorporated into any Arduino project, works entirely offline and requires no cloud, no data mining, etc, and has a 2 GB English dictionary.
Audeme is raising funds for MOVI, a standalone speech recognizer shield for Arduino on Kickstarter! MOVI is an offline speech recognizer and voice synthesizer that adds voice control functionality to any Arduino project

Google Developers originally shared to I/O 15:
 
We've made the Google I/O 2015 codelabs app publicly available for all #io15 participants in person, and attendees worldwide.

Codelabs provide a hands-on, guided tutorial experience illustrating how to build modern mobile and web applications using the latest Google APIs, tools and developer technologies. If you're here at Moscone, we're excited for you to try this out after the keynote on level 2.
Google Codelabs for developers staying on the cutting edge.

This was a fun codelabs to build. So much potential for this API.
 
Yes, your app can now talk back! The new Android M Voice Interaction API codelab by +Shawn Simisterhttps://g.co/dev/codelab-voice-interaction

#io15   #AndroidM   #VoiceActions  
In this codelab, you'll learn how to add voice interactions to your app with the Voice Interaction API. The Voice Interaction API allows users of your app to confirm actions and select from a list of options using only their voice.

Some of the best cocktails in SF. My favorites are the Mt. Tam (Gin, Gran Classico, Kina l’Avion, Sweet Vermouth) and Double Date (Date-infused Rye, Whisky, Sweet Vermouth, Amaro, Cinnamon Bitters). I don't like sweet cocktails so I was skeptical about the date-infused rye but it was amazingly well-balanced with just the right amount of cinnamon bitters. The jerky is really good too. I liked the pineapple/jalapeno jerky and the Jamaican jerk spice jerky even though it could have been a bit spicier.
