Memo Akten’s Vimeo channel is full of fun visual experiments pushing the limits of deep learning and artificial intelligence, but his latest video, gloomy sunday, is an especially fascinating look at image processing and how an AI’s ability to see the world can be manipulated. The video features three examples of a trained deep neural network trying to understand images coming from a live webcam, based on what it’s seen before. Except that the ‘what it’s seen before’ part is limited to vast image collections of either ocean waves, fires, or flowers.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
