I Can't Give You Water Because We Sell Water

Or, Adventures in Cincinnati Half-Priced Books I drove along small roads, because I couldn't figure out how to get onto and off of the major highways. Cincinnati's highways look like an overturned bowl of spaghetti. Look at your hand with your fingers spread out. That's what the end of I75 looks like, only, each finger has another hand coming off of it, some fingers merge back together, and there's no telling which ones go left or right around the bend. Driving the small roads was, aside from a lengthier drive, a tour of the underbelly of Cincinnati. It's not pretty, at least the part I drove on (mostly Rt 27). But I discovered a Half-Priced Books. I loved the Half-Priced Books in Dallas. This one was ok, but only a third of the size of the one in Dallas. I used to buy a lot of audio media: now I cycled through the records (my player doesn't work anymore), the cassett... (more)

Automated video image analysis will be the next big breakthrough

Remember Chance the Gardener character in Being There? “I like to watch tv” was his famous line. The problem with most business videos is that we produce a lot of unwatchable footage, especially those taken by security camera systems. And there aren’t any Chances around that want to watch them, either. The trouble is that trying to find the one or two actionable events in all of that footage isn’t easy. As an example, take the story in today’s NY Times that mentions how the military is being buried under a massive pile of video footage from its Predator drones that are flying over Pakistan and Afghanistan. The situation is only going to get worse, as newer drone models will be sending streams from dozens of cameras within a few years. The story has already been told about how the drones’ video feeds are available to anyone who has some minor software skills – the ac... (more)

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
