It is truly amazing what developers all over the world are managing to come up with in the field of perceptual computing. Perceptual computing is something that Intel® is putting a lot of time, energy, and resources into, as seen in the recently finished Ultimate Coder: Going Perceptual competition and the ongoing Intel® Perceptual Computing Challenge, which is about to kick off into its second phase on May 6th.
Our sense of touch is vitally important. It’s involved in literally every interaction we have. When it comes to human-computer interaction, touch is especially important, especially as touch-enabled input controls and interactive experiences make our computing experiences ever more tactile. As more and more devices are adapting touch-enabled features, controls, and form inputs to satisfy consumers’ ever-growing appetite for tactile input, we’re seeing new advances from a wide variety of fields.
For 7 weeks we've seen 7 teams hack, code, build, and rebuild apps to leverage the Intel Perceptual Computing SDK using a convertible Ultrabook™. Our judges have taken time to review the work, have tested each and scored each of our Challenger teams. The ink is dry, scores added, and the results are final. The Ultimate Coder awards are as follows.
Last week, our Challengers submitted the final version of their perceptual computing apps to the judges, and this week, it was testing time. Our judges took on the task of putting each project through its paces, and wrote up their first thoughts on each and every one – in addition to general thoughts on the Challenge and the future of perceptual computing. Are there clear winners for our judges? Not quite yet, and the final verdict won’t be in until next week when we announce the winners on April 24. Here’s what our judges had to say after their initial testing periods:
Intel Perceptual Computing SDK est maintenant disponible en téléchargement gratuit. Les développeurs peuvent ajouter des usages informatiques de perception pour créer immersive applications logicielles qui intègrent la main en gros et au suivi de doigt, l'analyse faciale, la reconnaissance vocale et le suivi d'objets 2D/3D sur 2ème et 3ème génération Intel dispositifs ® Core ™ alimenté par Ultrabook ™ et PC. Le SDK inclut des API pour aider à réduire le temps pour le développement.
Wir hatten am Dienstag unseren ersten offiziellen Intel Developer Zone MeetUp in München und dank tatkräftiger Unterstützung von BeMyApp Germany eine bunte Mischung aus interessierten Entwicklern, die herausfinden wollten, was wir eigentlich in Sachen Software so alles anstellen.Nach einem kleinen Intro und etwas Marketing Lala meinerseits hat dann der technische Part mit Sulamita angefangen (ach ja, wir haben spontan auf Englisch umgestellt und meines Wissen war es das erste mal, dass ich mit deutschen Fo
This was the last week for our Challengers in the Ultimate Coder Contest: Going Perceptual to work on their apps and write up their last blog posting. The work for judges is only just beginning, as they receive the finished apps this week and begin the job of determining which app is the Ultimate in displaying perceptual computing technology. Here’s a recap of what our challengers and judges have been up to in Week 7:
