Read the Analog Inputs — MakingThings: "Autosend
First, choose whether you want the Make Controller to send messages to you over USB or Ethernet.  If you want Ethernet, send it the message
/system/autosend-udp 1
The board will send messages wherever it last received a message from.  If you want USB, send the message
/system/autosend-usb 1
Next, decide how often you want the Make Controller Kit to send you messages.  We'll have it look every 10 milliseconds, or 100 times a second.  To do this, send the message
/system/autosend-interval 10
Lastly, turn the analog inputs autosend on.  We'll turn on autosend for all 8 of the analogin channels by sending the message
/analogin/*/autosend 1
Now, anytime the value changes on one of your inputs, the Make Controller will send you a message.  Read on below to see how to deal with the incoming messages."

Demand for Android Skills Up 710% from Last Year: "According to a recent report from global hiring marketplace oDesk, demand for developers with Android skills is up 710% in October 2010 versus October 2009. The increased demand is not surprising, given the mobile operating system's rapid climb over the past 12+ months, now reaching its new status as the number one mobile OS in the United States and number two worldwide, as of Q3 2010."

lloyds mirror effect | Comp.DSP | DSPRelated.com

lloyds mirror effect | Comp.DSP | DSPRelated.com: "he basic effect is due to 2 signal paths of different lengths. When a broadband
(e.g. white noise) type signal is transmitted it produces a sinusoidal pattern
in the spectrogram or more usually for sonar Lofargram. When the source is
moving this causes the sinusoidal pattern to change over time.
By measuring the period of the sinusoidal pattern at the Closest Point of
Approach (CPA) , and by measuring the rate of change of the sinusoidal pattern
you can perform some target localization.

The basic effect is described in Richard Neilson's book 'Sonar Signal Processing'"

Benford's Law - Fabulous Adventures In Coding - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

Benford's Law - Fabulous Adventures In Coding - Site Home - MSDN Blogs: "If you just start grabbing thousands or millions of 'random' numbers from newspapers and magazines and books, you soon see that about 30% of the numbers begin with 1, and it falls off rapidly from there. About 18% begin with 2, all the way down to less than 5% for 9.

This oddity was discovered by Newcomb in 1881, and then rediscovered by Frank Benford, a physicist, in 1937. As often is the case, the fact became associated with the second discoverer and is now known as Benford's Law."
"TINY FONT
I wanted to design the smallest screen font that would actually be readable. My design assumes that screen pixels are horizontal striped as RGBRGB, as are most LCD screens these days.

My goal was to have something that is clearly readable, yet can fit an entire page of text onto a QVGA (320×240) screen (eg: an Apple iPod or T-Mobile SideKick).

In contrast, I've noticed that Microsoft's smallest screen fonts are unreadable, whereas their smallest readable screen fonts are way bigger than necessary.

To the right you can see what I've got so far: a QVGA screen in my font can comfortably fit the first 500 words of the American Declaration of Independence - about one page of text."

To code quickly, you must quit coding

To code quickly, you must quit coding: "Some of you may already know what it is. For the rest of you, its going to sound wacky.

I stopped working.

Or rather, I set a timer for 50 minutes, during which time I worked on only one task -- no emails, no IMs, no games, no distractions. At the end of the 50 minutes, I went for a walk.

It doubled my productivity, and as a side effect increased my happiness with my work."

The Prague Stringology Club

The Prague Stringology Club

The stringology is a science on algorithms on strings and sequences. It solves such problems like exact and approximate pattern matching, searching for repetitions in various texts,... etc. There are many areas that utilize the results of the stringology (information retrival, computer vision, computational biology, DNA processing,... etc.). The Prague Stringology Club uses finite automata approach to solve the problems in stringology. This theory has been developed and successfully used in the field of compiler construction and therefore it can be very useful in the field of stringology too.

Triangular Design Manifesto. — Conceptual Devices

Triangular Design Manifesto. — Conceptual Devices: "

00_ Design should not be based on formal principles – but always on an idea of society.
01_ Designed forms represent possible social orders and a lot of their contradictions.
02_ Design is everything. Anything could be designed. Everyone is a designer.
03_ Design allows social innovations. Often it is not made by designers.
04_ Design has not scale. It could be small and have great impact.
05_ Design is not an innocent practice. Designers are wicked.
06_ Design should engage people and interact with them.
07_ Design is an interdisciplinary applied science.
08_ Design produces visual consciousness.
09_ Design is a triangular manifesto.
10_ Design makes you smile.
11_ This is the top.

Question If Yes
Do you need low latency, such as in games or sound effects? Use SoundPool; if it’s not flexible enough, use AudioTrack
Do you need to play video that has an audio track? Use MediaPlayer
Do you have a set of short sounds that you expect to play many times? Use SoundPool
Do you need to stream audio from an external source, e.g. HTTP or TCP stream? Try using MediaPlayer; if it doesn’t support your case, use AudioTrack
Do you need to generate audio from scratch, such as by using math formulas / frequency modulation? Use AudioTrack
Do you need to play background music? Use MediaPlayer
Do you need to modify the audio on the fly? Use AudioTrack
This table is far from being complete, but hopefully it could help you choose the right API for your"

Bag of words model in computer vision - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bag of words model in computer vision - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The BoW in NLP is a popular method for representing documents, which ignores the word orders. For example, 'a good book' and 'book good a' are the same under this model. The BoW model allows a dictionary-based modeling, and each document looks like a 'bag' (thus the order is not considered), which contains some words from the dictionary. Computer vision researchers use a similar idea for image representation (Here an image may refer to a particular object, such as an image of a car). For example, an image can be treated as a document, and features extracted from the image are considered as the 'words' (Usually some manipulations are needed, which are described below). The BoW representation serves as the basic element for further processing, such as object categorization."

A. Vedaldi - Code - Bag of Features

Bag of features is a well established technique for the visual classification of objects, categories of objects and textures. This is an implementation of a simplified version of the method of [1], which is based on the concept of hierarchical K-means dictionary. This technique is appealing because of its simplicity and power. I also used suggestions from [2], namely the extraction of random features.

Google plugs your surf history into ad money machine • The Register

Google plugs your surf history into ad money machine • The Register: "Google has unleashed a new behavioral ad targeting scheme onto YouTube and partner sites in its AdSense advertising network - though it has carefully avoided the term behavioral ad targeting. Google prefers 'interest-based advertising.'

Whatever you call it, YouTube and AdSense sites are now showing ads to websurfers based on the (many) pages they've perused in the past. 'We think we can make online advertising even more relevant and useful by using additional information about the websites people visit,' Google VP Susan Wojcicki wrote this morning in a blog post entitled 'Making ads more interesting.'"

Even Google does behavioural advertising now, but it's very careful not to use the b-word."

Human-computer music performances use system that links music and musical gestures (w/ Video)

Human-computer music performances use system that links music and musical gestures (w/ Video)



Every musical sound comes from a specific way that an instrument is played. With modern technology such as sensors, signal processing, and sometimes machine learning algorithms, researchers can determine the precise musical gesture used to produce a particular sound on an instrument. The ability to recreate musical gestures from sounds can be used for interactive human-computer music performances, music transcription, and other innovative applications.

This is work that was done in my lab. How freaking cool is that?

The Art of Unix Programming

The Art of Unix Programming: "Rule of Modularity: Write simple parts connected by clean interfaces.
Rule of Clarity: Clarity is better than cleverness.
Rule of Composition: Design programs to be connected with other programs.
Rule of Separation: Separate policy from mechanism; separate interfaces from engines.
Rule of Simplicity: Design for simplicity; add complexity only where you must.
Rule of Parsimony: Write a big program only when it is clear by demonstration that nothing else will do.
Rule of Transparency: Design for visibility to make inspection and debugging easier.
Rule of Robustness: Robustness is the child of�transparency and simplicity.
Rule of Representation: Fold knowledge into data, so�program logic can be stupid and robust.
Rule of Least Surprise: In interface design, always do the�least surprising thing.
Rule of Silence: When a program has nothing surprising to say, it should say nothing.
Rule of Repair: Repair what you can — but when you must fail, fail noisily and as soon as possible.
Rule of Economy: Programmer time is expensive; conserve it in preference to machine time.
Rule of Generation: Avoid hand-hacking; write programs to write programs when you can.
Rule of Optimization: Prototype before polishing. Get it working before you optimize it.
Rule of Diversity: Distrust all claims for one true way.
Rule of Extensibility: Design for the future, because it will be here sooner than you think."
