Intel Perceptual Computing Challenge

Intel® RealSense™ Blog Series: Smart Robots and More with Developer Yuanbo She

Intel® RealSense™ technology makes it possible for our digital worlds to interact with our physical, organic worlds in meaningful ways. Many of the projects that developers are creating step across boundaries that just a few years ago would have been impossible to imagine.

Intel® RealSense™ Blog Series: Interview with Gerry Mukti, CMO of Nightspade Games

The RealSense™ App Challenge 2014 is an exciting competition meant to spur developers from all over the world to forge new ground in the field of perceptual computing. Voice control, gesture recognition, facial analysis, and augmented reality are just some of the ideations we’re looking forward to in this challenge.

向大家分享两段来自Intel YouTube 频道的视频,都是关于英特尔实感技术(英文名为RealSense,曾用名为感知计算)。两段视频摄录于GDC(游戏开发者大会)期间,介绍了实感技术在2014年的新功能,以及带来的创新应用。

在这第一个视频里,Meghana Rao简单介绍了实感SDK的相关功能。在演示中,3D相机实时跟踪Meghana的手指移动,她随着音乐节拍摆弄双手,籍此进行音乐创作和视觉渲染。请看视频:

The hierarchy of developer motivation

A recent survey on developer economics put together by analytics firm VisionMobile polled 6000 respondents from 115 different countries on their motivations, challenges, and future plans for app development. The results give some intriguing insights into what are the prime motivating factors behind what developers do; namely, a sense of achievement and not money is the main motivating factor in software development (of course, a paycheck is always appreciated).

The Next Wave of Computing is Perceptual

Perceptual computing seems to be on a lot of people’s minds lately. From a quest to find the Ultimate Coder to the worldwide Intel Perceptual Computing Challenge to a free Perceptual Computing SDK, there are plenty of opportunities for developers to get involved in this cutting-edge exploration of how humans interact with computers.

Perceptual Computing Support from the Intel Capital Fund

It’s an exciting time to be a developer, especially if you’re interested in perceptual computing. At Computex last week, Intel announced that Intel Capital will be creating a $100 million Intel Capital Experiences and Perceptual Computing Fund over the next two to three years in order to support developments in this rapidly moving field:
