As the flight continued and the batteries on my laptop had died, I pulled my book out to read again. Marilyn read over my shoulder for about half an hour, snickering and laughing at many pages, but at others saying "That's true Sam, you should do that! So we put everything away, and watched out the window as we came in. Marilyn: I think that Sam could use some of the of the tips from the womanizing book but somehow I don't think that the book can turn him into an asshole. Maybe he needs to read a book on How nice guys pick up chicks instead, don't you agree? Just some remnants from rennovations that hadn't yet been cleared away. Somehow, I don't think that Sam should try this at home but if he does he is well equipped with a fire extinguisher that I made him buy at Home Depot. I guess we were in or near the Magic Reservoir at the time.
But still, it wasn't the most comforting thing to see right after getting off the plane! Sam forgot to mention that the Chef saved a piece of shrimp for his last trick. By the third or forth time she called, she had woken Chad up too. I got up and showered quickly and got dressed and headed up to Marilyn's room while Chad followed and got ready. When we got into Hailey, we saw this teenage girl tooling around on an actual Segway!
But face recognition is really a series of several related problems: Let’s tackle this problem one step at a time.
For each step, we’ll learn about a different machine learning algorithm.
Have you noticed that Facebook has developed an uncanny ability to recognize your friends in your photographs?
In the old days, Facebook used to make you to tag your friends in photos by clicking on them and typing in their name.
If you want to skip my How to Figure Out Web RTC Camera Resolutions post from last October, then here is a quick summary: Now that we are done with that history, let’s walk through my latest tests.
I rewrote my original code (see the next section) and conducted new full resolution scans of every 4:3 and 16:9 resolution combination between 2160 vertical pixels and 1.
Surprisingly I found the resolutions that were returned were sometimes different than what you ask for, even if you make your constraints mandatory.
Firefox didn’t support programmable video resolution constraints at all.
It’s pretty amazing technology — Facebook can recognize faces with 98% accuracy which is pretty much as good as humans can do! But just recognizing your friends would be too easy.
