I’m in a wonderful position to write this blog post. I’m fresh out of writing my second technical book for a publisher. My first book was published in 2014 with Packt, and now my second book is coming out with O'Reilly Media here in 2021. It’s fair to say I have an in-depth perspective on the whole book process, and I’d love to share that wisdom with you because you might need it one day.
You don’t want to hear this, but you’ll probably rewrite your entire first chapter once you’ve finished the book. That might scare you but it…
In this article, we’ll attempt to train a browser to identify Star Trek insignias from drawings on an HTML canvas. You’ll learn how to utilize best practices and frameworks to hopefully solve this problem.
Web developers are surrounded by amazing feats of AI. The big hurdle that keeps most ideas from being born is a lack of data. Popular training sets include thousands upon thousands of images, and who has time for that? That’s why the method explained in this post is your friend. We’ll cover “transfer learning” with the following:
Idea: The user draws an animal & gets sorted into their Hogwarts house.
The four Hogwarts houses each have an animal associated with them. So when the user draws an animal, the AI becomes a sorting hat.
I don’t need the data to be perfect. Part of the fun of getting sorted in Harry Potter is the occasional surprise. However, it’s boring — if not useless — to deal…
Machine Learning needs more fun around those crazy vocabulary words. Here are some rebuses (images of words) puzzles I made for my newsletter AI-FYI.com and wanted to share the fun.
If you’re new to Machine Learning, this is a great way to learn about and memorize these new terms, and if you’re a pro, this should be quite the brain tease. These images represent common machine learning, data science, and AI terms that you should be familiar with.
As with the last time I did a post like this, I will not be including the answers. That’s what the comments…
Last year I made it a goal to capture one awesome thing a month. Something that was creative and inspirational that speaks to my inner creative. I had no idea that a pandemic would hit and that I would almost abandon this adventure, but now that the year is over, I realize it was essential that this list lived. I’m happy to share my “creative thing a month” list.
I’ve been busy with 2021 so this is a little delayed, but here’s my awesome findings from 2020.
There’s something fundamentally rewarding about taking the necessary and making it extraordinary. January…
Have you ever seen those “Countdown” or “Days ’til Christmas” dice that people use as decoration? I don’t know when they got popular, but I’ve been seeing them more and more. Finally, one landed in my house with a bunch of decorations in November. It’s a cute couple of cubes with numbers on them for counting down the last 25 days until Xmas.
We folks at Infinite Red are pretty darn good. I’d say we’re one of the best React Native shops, if not the best in the world. But our strength comes from our willingness to grow, experiment, and communicate. Let me give you an example.
I was chatting with the epic michael chan from the React Podcast, and we laughed that we sometimes join meetings and then check our appearance. I’m guilty of fixing my hair quickly as soon as I see myself 😅 . Michael said that he knows someone who has an app that is basically a mirror. So…
On my daughter’s 1st birthday she got a cute dinosaur that ate circular discs with different fruit printed on them and sang a song for each one. Someone asked, “how does it know one piece of plastic from another?” and that question secretly sent me into a nerd adventure.
This is the story of the Binary Dino; “my daughter’s toy” and a fun puzzle.
If you want the TL:DR; you can just watch this video from my chat with TensorFlow on their YouTube channel.
I love speaking at conferences, and most of all connecting with people!
