Hello peeps and evil robots
« on: January 04, 2018, 08:42:40 pm »
Hello!

I'm not one for general self promotion so I will make this short!

Developer of 20+ years working on (and more recently running) some very big enterprise development projects for some very large corporations.  Have worked in most languages over the years.  I also enjoy hardware hacking and it doesn't take me long after purchasing something before I take a soldering iron to it.

Did cybernetics at university and have never lost the AI fever.  Although most of my day to day roles have been in more traditional systems, I have spent the last 15 years building my own forex trading robots and various other fun projects (when I started those I had to build my NN libraries from scratch!)

Thought I'd just drop by and start getting more involved in the community.  Had some time over christmas to whip together a fun AI project and that inspired me to get more involved.

James.

Id like to hear more about your projects, if u dont mind - it would be good.

Im working on gpu accellerated pattern matching, which i use for video based systems.   like tracking and 3d depth generation from 2d videos.

Id like to get a really good video editing program going which makes making movies allot easier.  which is what i think is going to be getting better and better as the years go by, especially with machine learning techniques in the program.

But recently, my biggest problem is my cigarette intake, and its slowing me down heaps, i HAVE to quit, or its not going to happen for me.

Ranch said, "Id like to get a really good video editing program going which makes making movies allot easier. "
I think there are really good video editing programs in Linux to make movies easier, that often run in Windows too.

Welcome James.   What hardware do you enjoy the most?

Thanks guys.

Went offline for a few weeks as my psu died!

@8pla.net, I'm a linux boy myself.  With a couple of watercooled gtx1080 to play with :)  I also like fiddling with fpga's but I don't have a working board at the moment

@ranch my cigarette intake at the moment is also too much!

those nice gpus you have are good for running squares,  (a neural network is basicly the input squared)  even just raw, and itll match beautifully, i remember ages ago i had one running on my gpu (a gtx 980 i think) and i got to a 64x64 screen running back and forth at random after i jogged some video into it - and playing it back after adding noise to the screen, and it picked the closest frame out of backwards and forwards.   showing the content based random access nature of neural networks.

that was amazing for me to see, but after the initial fun you have you have to eventually optimize it and then i basicly was just at the same brick wall till today. :)   no near matching speed, its too hard to get.   

An fpga might beat a video card, but i have my suspicions about the hardware industry tapering the speeds of their hardware, because it should be alot better than a video card, but maybe it is, but i havent tried it,  and with fpgas im not sure how they price them.
