Combining Computer Vision with Human vision

August 1, 2006

Researchers at Columbia University are combining the processing power of the human brain with computer vision to develop a novel device that will allow people to search through images ten times faster than they can on their own.
The system harnesses the brain’s wel known ability to recognize an image much faster than the person can identify it.

Here is the link

PS :: As someone ,whose toughest question at job interviews was “why did you take Computer Vision ” and / or “why did you not follow it up with other related subjects ?” and / or “What IS computer Vision” , will tell you ( and as will I ) .. Computer Vision @ IIIT places you amongst the non-bald eggheads of the class , if not the entire computer savvy community.
With my limited knowledge / understanding / accumen of the matter, I found the link above very very interesting. Probably the non-bald eggheads would explain it a lot better (better .. ehh .. actually .. they are the ones who would explain it .. I am too lazy and ill-informed and bored to write anything else about it).

Google Calendar *.*’s Wishlist

April 21, 2006

Google Calendar has worked for me. I was not a Gmail user, but Google calender has forced me to shift to Gmail. The following are a few of my wishes of features in Google Calendar. (But i know Google people dont listen to me. Like in 'Mark All Read' feature of Google Reader. )

* Configurable duration of the day (eg. show only 7am to 10pm). This will fit the full calendar in my screen (no scrolling needed.)

* A public/shared view of the calendar. Will help me publish my busy/non busy hours.

* Previous 2 days and next 4 days view [ numbers should be configurable ]

* Integrate with Gmail/GTalk/GToolbar more closely

– from calendar give links to associated mail

– from gmail show calendar agenda in sidebar

* To-Do lists

* Set to-date equal to from-date by default if not available (eg. while adding event from mail)

* New entry / edit event details should also be popup ( like the event info popup )

* Multiple days (but not full day) event should be shown like single day event streteched across multiple days. (The current way of showing it in full day events is stupid.)

* Upload a file associated with an event

* Cell phone notification service in india and should be synced with a cell phones calendar 🙂 (like Active Sync in Outlook)

* Should avoid being classified as "web based email" in websense!
