Updated with Google’s TensorFlow: Artificial Intelligence, Neural Networks, and Deep Learning

**Note: there are links all over this post. Every link is unique, even if it has the same words as the link. So, click away for some awesome additional information! Some are amazingly informative!** **Note #2: This is a work in progress. The amount of time this article took led me to simply provide links near the end rather than explaining what the links basically "said". I'm going to fine-tune this over time. This could actually become a book; I'd love to do it!** Artificial Intelligence (AI), Neural Networks and Deep Learning are fascinating topics to be sure. More interesting to me, however, answers the question "How did we get where we are today, and, where 'are we' today?" This post is about all 3 technologies, the pioneers that led to where we are today with these technologies, where we "are" today with these technologies; along with some correlations to one of my other favorite technologies, Augmented Reality. The most inspiring and persistent AI revolutionaries is a … [Read more...]

Top 10 Augmented Reality Trends for 2014

Me inside the DAQRI Virtual Flight Attendant AR 4D Experience

Augmented Reality to me means uber-cool, helping industries in amazing ways, and although it's not expected to really be mass adopted until 2020, whoever isn't following this mind-blowing technology isn't looking toward the future. The image above is of me at the Augmented World Expo 2014 #awe2014 in DAQRI's large exhibition hall booth. In one section they had this Virtual Human (to quote DAQRI) "takes 4D to the next level, bringing full-sized photorealistic people to life and providing the ultimate storytelling experience. Virtual Humans pairs intelligent 360-degree image capture technology with 4D, opening the door for truly engaging storytelling and life-size gaming opportunities where virtual characters are as real as the audience." So on to the topic of the Top 10 AR Trends for 2014. First of all, let me start by saying that the AR market in 2014 is predicted to grow rapidly. Revenues are expected to hit $5.2 billion by 2017. Trends: Wearable Technology: Wonder why I … [Read more...]
