Great Google AI Platform: TensorFlow.org – Machine Intelligence
Also look at: Google Cloud Machine Intelligence and Google Cloud Machine Learning

Some AI platforms:

A Tour of Machine Learning Algorithms

Most platforms seem to use python programming language (or c++) for the interface.

Some Terms

  • Data Analysis, Data Mining, Machine Learning and Mathematical Modeling are tools.
  • Artificial Intelligence — automatic ways of reasoning.
  • Machine Learning — turning data in to information and making decisions.
  • Data Mining — extracting information from lots of data
  • Artificial neural network (ANN)
  • Pattern recognition

 

 

Creativity Thoughts from my Tweets

Creativity thoughts from my tweets

Creativity starts with having fun trying to meet a real need.

Thinking of others improves creativity since usually it benefits others or society.

Creativity peaks in the morning when fresh, in the shower, out for a run or a walk in a new place. Complaining keeps us from moving forward, but Use adversity to stimulate creativity.

Creative people guard their time, sometimes say no to new projects.

Seeing patterns and making connections lead to insights and ideas.

Negative thoughts impair creativity, but sometimes the negative tension can urge us on to a new creative solution.

Creativity is thinking up new things.

Interface Technology for the Brain

Today people are developing technology to interface directly with the brain. One of the more safe ones (besides just a keyboard and mouse) is EEG (ElectroEncephaloGram). With EEG electrical probes are attached to the head on the surface. These connections are wired to a pre-amplifier or instrument amplifier, digitized and feed into a PC or Mac computer for analysis.

Several very low frequency brain waves have been discovered. The waves are actually radio waves (electro-magnetic) but the magnetic component is so small that just the electrical component is picked up.

Here is a few great articles:

People Purchase on Emotion

Feelings speak loader than thoughts and reasonings….so its not the product that is better, but the one that feels the best. Even comparison charts help in sales, but understand then the user pulls out the credit card for a purchase, it was most of the time where the emotions have dictated.

Ham Radio Receiver, Radio Astronomy – build your own

Look at this Ham Radio: Gqrx is a software defined radio receiver powered by the GNU Radio SDR framework and the Qt graphical toolkit.

Look at this Ham Radio: receiver.

Consider a SDR (software designed radio) on this site, let your PC control the Radio parameters.

Consider GNU Radio as a great software option for Ham Radio.

Consider Amateur Radio Astronomy, also this site, and this NASA site.
