How computers learn to recognize objects instantly | Joseph Redmon

Pinterest Board CommanderTen years ago, researchers thought that getting a computer to tell the difference between a cat and a dog would be almost impossible. Today, computer vision systems do it with greater than 99 percent accuracy. How? Joseph Redmon works on the YOLO (You Only Look Once) system, an open-source method of object detection that can identify objects in images and video -- from zebras to stop signs -- with lightning-quick speed. In a remarkable live demo, Redmon shows off this important step forward for applications like self-driving cars, robotics and even cancer detection. The TED Talks channel features the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and more.

This dating app will let you video chat with matches before you waste your time IRL

The Creator It's a Logo Maker    If you thought FaceTiming with your family was awkward, just wait. Badoo, the international dating app that boasts somewhere north of 330 million users, today introduced the option to video chat with someone before you commit to meeting up IRL.  This comes on the heels of many of the other major players in the dating app space adding some form of video. Earlier this summer, Hinge added video clips to profiles. Bumble announced a video feature earlier in the year (though it’s not yet available), and Match recently launched their own video product Stories.   But Badoo’s version sets itself apart by being a real-time way to actually interact with someone, as opposed to just let them see a recorded version of yourself. You have to send at least one text message with a match before you can move into video chat.  Read more...More about Dating Apps, Video Chat, Culture, and Sex Relationships [Read More ...] Instant Content For A WP Site...

Moonhack breaks a world record for kids coding, again

The Creator A Character Mascot Generator   On Tuesday, 28,575 kids around Australia broke a world record by coding on the same day.  It was all for Moonhack, an event for ages 8 to 18 set up by Code Clubs Australia, a network of 1,950 volunteer-led, after-school coding clubs for children.  This year was the first time the event officially expanded internationally from its native Australia, due in part to a strange occurrence which happened after the first Moonhack last year. SEE ALSO: Tech toys are helping kids learn to code at an early age "We finished off the night, and midnight had ticked over, so we all went to bed," Code Club Australia General Manager Kelly Tagalan explained before the event.

‘Pivot to video’ is not the death of words

The Creator It's a Logo Maker    The "pivot to video" is not the death of words.  It's not the death of journalism or a sign that people are abandoning everything that is right and good in the world. What it is, however, isn't much better. SEE ALSO: Facebook is turning up the heat on media companies yet again The "pivot to video" is the product of an internet that is run by Google, Facebook, and an advertising market with little regard for anything that isn't video. They're setting the rules, and media companies—especially startups—have to play the game. News broke on Thursday that Mic laid off 25 staffers and will turn its resources to producing more video. This has become a common move in the past couple years as digital media startups have found that pageviews just don't translate into very much money (Mashable made just such a move in April 2016).  Read more...More about Digital Media, Business, and Media Industry [Read More ...] Instant Content For A WP Site...

Facebook is finally purging annoying fake videos from your News Feed

The Creator A Character Mascot Generator   Say goodbye to annoying fake Facebook videos. The social network is tweaking its algorithm so you'll see static memes disguised as videos and images with fake play buttons way less often.  Spammers have been flooding the site with these trick formats to take advantage of Facebook's fanatical focus on promoting video above other types of content. Uploading single images as videos can earn the poster advertising money, and photos made to look like videos can lead users to sketchy sites with malicious ads.
