Well, this is the first week of coding for the Perceptual Computing challenge, and I thought it might be interesting for you to know how I'm approaching developing the application, what I see the challenges as being, and any roadblocks that I hit on the way. I must say, up front, that this is going to be a long post precisely because there's so much to put in here. I'll be rambling on about decisions I make, and I'll even post some code in for you to have a look at if you're interested.
So what does Lee have in store for you this week? You may wonder, and you won't have to wonder for long as I have provided a nice big video for those who don't have the stomach for the reams of text to follow.
Week 1 of Ultimate Coder is behind us and it’s been another exciting start to the Ultimate Coder Challenge. Challengers, for the first time, exposed their ideas and approaches to building futuristic applications where the mere waving of hands, tracking of eyes, or speaking out loud control the app experience.
We are thrilled to have been invited to participate in Intel’s Going Perceptual: Ultimate Coder Challenge! What an amazing opportunity to work and collaborate with such talented groups, and with such cutting-edge technology. We are very eager to see what all of these talented teams can create.
Hello all and welcome to our very first Ultimate Coder: Going Perceptual blogpost!
I thought we'd use this opportunity to introduce ourselves and tell you about what we will be doing with the Perceptual Computing platform and where we're coming from with our ideas:
Who are Simian Squared?
Welcome to the start of another exciting adventure into the weird and wonderful world of cutting edge software development. Beyond these walls lurk strange unfathomable creatures with unusual names, ready to tear the limbs of any unsuspecting coder careless enough to stay on the path.
The bell has rung and Code-Monkeys is ready to let loose its collective intellect to throw down the competition. We just narrowly missed the crown last round, grabbing second place with Wind Up Football. The sting still lingers, yet the drive has been renewed. Code-Monkeys will be coming to the Perceptual Computing Challenge with guns blazing.
