I've been using www.hemingwayapp.com, it seems similar to this.

Nice looking #smartwatch wish I could get some hands-on with all the competing wearable...
 
Landing on wrists from November 17th, Huawei is taking on Apple Watch with a surprisingly nice #AndroidWear  smartwatch.

I went to have a play with the final design - full pricing in the post.

#Android   #Huawei   #HuaweiWatch   #smartwatch   #IFA   #IFA2015  
Huawei is going all-out with the Huawei Watch, aiming to raise the Android Wear bar as well as directly take on the Apple Watch in pricing. The new wearable goes up for preorder today, kicking off ...

Honestly, I think #moto360 is better looking than the #applewatch
 
As long as the Moto 360 has the latest version of Android Wear, it just works.
Today, Google revealed that its Android Wear platform will now work with the iPhone, a big step for the nascent wearables world. However, that step doesn't come without a few caveats, namely that...

#Mycroft   #AI  is written in  #python  
 
Mycroft is pretty much completely written in Python. I'm eager to share the code with everyone. :)
Joshua Montgomery is raising funds for Mycroft: An Open Source Artificial Intelligence For Everyone on Kickstarter! Uses natural language to control Internet of Things. Built on Raspberry Pi this whole home A.I. plays media, controls lights & more.

What this IBM employee does with his spare time
Lighting systems may be low voltage DC instead of higher voltage AC.
"Zero Energy Home TeK ( TeK-THink )- Imagine a new home designed in such a way as to require no power from the grid. Everything you need to live is still available such as heating,cooling,hot-water, power for your big screen tv ,2 door refrigerator, huge chest freezer, large double wall oven with microwave and cook-top. All of the lighting in the house is placed such that lighting levels are optimum for all normal activities while still requiring no external power."  http://tek-think.com/2014/07/19/ibm-researcher-shows-zero-energy-home/
Lighting systems may be low voltage DC instead of higher voltage AC. A ground loop geothermal system boosts the room specific room specific heating. A passive solar design moves warm air from the ceiling outside and cool air from the basement up to main living area.

#tesla  breaking Consumer Reports scoring system (scoring 103 out of a 100)
 
Tesla's new Model S P85D is so good it broke Consumer Reports' scoring system. Consumer Reports rates vehicles on a zero-to-100 scale, but Tesla's high-performance, all-wheel-drive car scored 103. "Consumer Reports had to make changes to its scoring methodology to account for the car's exceptionally strong performance," the magazine said in a statement. #Tesla   #ModelS   #ConsumerReports    http://cnnmon.ie/1U80TVP

Rule #1: There is always a way to get media for free.
Rule #2: Only resort to paying for media if all options for rule #1 have been exhausted and you still really want it.
Rule #3: Never buy new, promo, premier, or pre-order.
Rule #4: If you enjoyed it for free, you should buy it to promote it.
Rule #5: If you did not enjoy it for free, toss it into the abyss. You have suffered no loss.

Introduction
I am a scientist doing research on Computational Cognitive Modeling. My work falls under Artificial Intelligence and Psychology domains. I study human/animal learning and decision mechanisms, and develop computational agents based on these mechanisms (links: 1 2 3). 

I also spend a good deal of time on cognitive robotics (interfacing robots with cognitive systems link), on virtual world simulations (interfacing Second Life with cognitive systems link), on semantic models (getting computers to learn word meaning by reading link), and cognitive engineering (a sub-field of human-computer interaction), and I have taught courses on all of these topics at Rensselaer (i♥rpi).
