What Should Mixed Reality UI Look Like? [Concept] – ART + marketing

  • [Concept]While virtual and mixed reality experiences are trending right now (we’ve seen a lot of cool examples in movies), I feel that there’s a lack in convergence of practical interaction patterns.
  • We haven’t seen the iPhone of mixed reality yet, so I decided to explore the user experience and interface aesthetics of mixed reality and share my ideas with the community.
  • My goal is to encourage other designers to think and publish ideas on MR interfaces.As technology becomes invisible at all such levels, from a perceptual and cognitive point of view, interaction becomes completely natural and spontaneous.
  • And one of the attributes of good interaction design is allowing Natural User Interfaces: those which are invisible to the user, and remain invisible as we learn them.
  • Some examples of these interfaces are speech recognition, direct manipulation, and gestures.Apps as ObjectsI started by looking into an interaction that felt very natural: browsing records.I found this interaction interesting because of the following:Direct manipulation of the catalogPerception of progress while browsingFull visual of selected itemMinimal footprint of scrolled itemsI was thinking of a way to apply these principles to an interaction for browsing and launching apps in a mixed reality environment.In this case, the app cards are arranged in a stack and placed below the user’s point of view, at a comfortable reach distance.

While virtual and mixed reality experiences are trending right now (we’ve seen a lot of cool examples in movies), I feel that there’s a lack in convergence of practical interaction patterns. We haven…

Google announces RAISR, a method of upscaling images with machine learning

Google announces RAISR, a method of upscaling images with machine learning

  • Cold case files: Google Pixel case reviews (continuously updated)
  • It’s still all there – the problem is enlarging an image while adding or imagining extra detail.
  • [Lollipop Feature Lowlight] Google Has Removed Silent Mode, But Only From Phones [Update]
  • [Update: APK Added] Google Play Music is getting a smarter recommendation engine, new home screen, and automatic music caching for offline play [APK Download]
  • Most of the methods result in a blurry image that loses the fine details of the original image.

You probably know as well as I do that the internet is littered with low-resolution images, either a limitation of a device’s camera or purposely-downgrade… by Corbin Davenport in Google, News, Videos

Deep #ReinforcementLearning for #Keras: state-of-the art #DeepLearning in #Python

  • In a nutshell: keras-rl makes it really easy to run state-of-the-art deep reinforcement learning algorithms, uses Keras and Theano and TensorFlow and was built with OpenAI Gym in mind.
  • keras-rl implements some state-of-the art deep reinforcement learning algorithms in Python and seamlessly integrates with the deep learning library Keras .
  • You can extend keras-rl according to your own needs.
  • The repo provides some weights that were obtained by running (at least some) of the examples that are included in keras-rl .
  • Keras-rl works with OpenAI Gym out of the box.
