With the success I’ve had with the open-source libraries I found for speech recognition and synthesis I’ve decided that that plan is outdated. With a little hacking I was able to glue two systems together with using Python and produce an extremely rudimentary ‘artificially intelligent’ in the manner of two days. This gives me quite a bit of hope.
These data structures allow you to define parent and child relationships using a set of vertex information and classes. These are best suited to dealing with a tree of nodes, a common data structure encountered by optimization and artificial intelligence.
Actually, I usually gain a desire for anything once I start doing it. I have to make myself actually start doing something, whether I dread it or not, before I start feeling like I actually want to do it. I call it momentum. Getting there is unfortunately a lot harder than it sounds.
I used to obsess over these kinds of movies when I was younger. I didn’t own any copies of my own, so much like Howard the Duck, Labyrinth, All Dogs Go To Heaven, and others, I had to wait until some circumstance in my life allowed me to see it again (it was usually called cable). I loved those movies.
So where does this leave the blog? Well, I hope to take the blog up again like I was doing before. It’s a positive influence in my life, and I think that I have interesting and fun things to share. It also helps exercise my brain because I have to remember things, write them down, organize graphics, and such. It also encourages me to do things, more things than just lay on the couch and feel bad, because writing about that obviously is a wonderful idea.
I told Hurricane that she had a love-child with Maus, which made my newest niece make a funny face. It was funny. I told her that their child Audrey looked like a little old lady, but more fascinating was that I set her to travel abroad across and out to other DS systems in other Tomodachi islands. Their legacy lives on!
It’s still winter in Kadaria, but the fruit still grows on the trees. The (second-to-) last time I visited there were a lot of dead flowers. More than usual, but I don’t expect much when the temperature outside is -20 degrees. That’s how cold it was in Handyville, so I imagined it was the same in Kadaria.
Maus and I went out to Starbucks. Oh my god, really? While we went to Starbucks we observed the fresh snow falling and took a few pictures, and a video (below). That day we were hoping to go see the Christmas lights at the light garden off in some other part of Fort Collins. I guess it’s sponsored by something or other, I never really paid attention. I mean, how could you, there’s so many shinies! One of the cool things we saw was lights under the snow. These are lights covered up by perfectly pristine snow. The effect is cool!
