Just a quick update that I added blink/eyebrow idle options.  Also hooked it up to a API.AI here (my first experience with bot programming): https://talkrapp.com/gifdemo/bot/index.html

The demo works best on Windows/MAC using Chrome so you can use the speech recognition.  It also works on Android, but I could only get one English voice to work on my samsung galaxy tab.  (If anyone has an Android, especially non-samsung to try, I'd be interested to know what happens when you say "change voice".  Does the english voice change?)

Try these commands:

"Change avatar"
"Learn new response"
"Ask me about the presidents"
"Give me a word problem"
"Yes or no, will I become president one day?"

Pros
  • ConvNetSharp comes with a few working low scale examples
  • It has a GPU example for the MNIST data set
  • In comparison to other C# alternatives it has more features (e.g. convolutional layer, CUDA, like Encog does not feature that)
  • The author responds to issues/questions weekly and actually tries to help here and there

Cons
  • Lack of documentation
  • Lack of commented code
  • Struggling with exceptions concerning GPU and Volume usage
  • Tough to understand the code behind ConvNetSharp due to poor variable names
  • Single threaded CPU usage

Hi,
You did the pros & cons of implementing NN yourself, which I understand. But what are the pros of sticking with ConvNetSharp? (I mean, since it doesn't work nicely)

Progress is still sparse. I still didn't get a good result for the slot machine so I switched to the Apples&Poison Demo. Well, this revealed a huge lack in performance, because ConvNetSharp seems to be single threaded (no imports for using threads). The old port of ConvNetJS, which comes with the Apples&Poison Demo is running much faster, but is single threaded as well.

As ConvNetSharp features CUDA, I wanted to overcome this problem for now by letting the GPU do the job, but from that point on I'm pushed from one exception to another one. The first one was about setting the project to 64bit only and now I'm stuck on a CUDA exception concerning memory allocation.

ConvNetSharp does not come with any documentation or some comments in the code. What do you think? Should I stick with ConvNetSharp? The alternative would be to build an interface to Python or to implement neural networks myself. Of course the implementation takes much more effort, but has educational advantages. And I'd approach it using compute shaders in Unity that wouldn't limit the usage to nvidia GPUs.

In order to solve this problem , I've failed many times
all I had to do was to add my microsoft account as a user, login once, and re-enter the Windows 10 . Windows 10 accepted the serial on the first try, and I have again a fully licensed Windows version.

That looks the safest one so far  ;D

I did wonder about flying over water, but did not mention it. One for the lifeguards maybe ?

No, not the one from the Wright Brothers. This one is somewhat smaller and way cooler!

If you consider that those four circular units each house 19 motors and propellers!

I think I saw four blocks of 20 LiPo batteries (possibly more). While extremely smooth and maneuverable I think it only has about 10-15 minutes of flight time. Then there's the issue of safety. Sure it could go way higher but would you want to, without some sort of safety option?

Still, it's very cool when some people can create unusual and creative things.
