you can see people moving from the white house (bottom) to the capitol (top), if you plot the video metadata with time on the x axis and longitude on the y axis. it looks like almost every second is covered from at least one angle. Image

in memory of one the most magical people i've met @jtnimoy JT was my earliest introduction to computer vision, via jmyron for @ProcessingOrg webcamxtra.sourceforge.net Image
from the little time we spent together, i felt that JT had a unique way of approaching the world that opened up the certainty of things into something more undefined, surreal, sublime.
(one of my favorite glimpses into her mind comes from the CLOUDS documentary cloudsdocumentary.com i highly recommend checking it out, it's poetry. she says she learned to code by “addicting” herself to it)

i’m helping to document “te lapa”, an unexplained luminous phenomena used for navigation by polynesian voyagers ⚡️⛵️ so excited to work with this team + support from @LACMA ❤️
the work to document and share voyaging knowledge from taumako started in 1993 when chief koloso kaveia recruited dr. marianne george. my contribution will be a small piece of something much larger, connecting beyond taumako to revivalist polynesian sailing. Image
te lapa is a faint flash of light that emanates from islands and reefs at night, visible more than 150 miles away. calling it "unexplained" is a simplification, because taumako folks have an explanation: it is a message from our ancestors (or, it is an ancestor). Image

at the “facial machines” seminar in aarhus, denmark for two days. i’ll be tracking some of the presentations in this thread.
denmark has had a face covering ban for only a few months. there are some practical exceptions: if it's really cold, if it's halloween, or if you are wearing the extremely badass traditional dress of people of fanø island.
off to a great start with some notes about physiognomy and the history of measuring faces. if this is the intro i’m psyched for the speakers 😳

thread: since moving to LA i've been sailing a lot. i took @memotv yesterday and his analytical approach reminded me what a multifaceted activity it can be. it spans a number of disciplines and traditions, from polynesian wayfinding to cutting edge engineering. ImageImage
polynesian sailors mastered the science of navigation. one of their traditional tools is based on swell interference patterns: they use the boat rocking to determine their position and orientation in known geography, or to estimate the location of unknown islands. ImageImage
those drawings are from this incredible paper that describes another polynesian piloting tool called "te lapa": flashes of light that radiate from land at distances of 2-200 miles (3-320km). no one knows what causes them. tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.275… Image

reading the wikipedia page for speech synthesis i fell into a rabbit hole following the history of "brazen heads": legendary bronze objects with supernatural foresight. i noticed a number of connections to contemporary issues in AI.
while golems and moving sculptures are typically mobile but speechless, brazen heads speak but are immobile. they don't follow the familiar plot of abusing their strength to run amok or destroy their creator.
one of the best known brazen heads was crafted by roger bacon in the 1200s, popularized in the 1500s. bacon wanted to protect england by surrounding it in a brass wall, and hoped to get advice from the head. mainlesson.com/display.php?au…
