I recently got the opportunity to attend AWE ‘13 to demonstrate ARPool and give a talk. The conference was very cool, it was awesome to interact with people working on similar ideas and get inspired by their successes. I even got to try out Google Glass!
I am particularly excited about the “How To” applications of Augmented Reality, like one of the keynotes said we’re not quite at the matrix learn to fly this helicopter level but we are moving towards that direction.
ARPool was really popular and I had a great time sharing it with everyone, we also got a lot of nice press coverage - hopefully this helps us find a commercial partner!

I’ve been accepted to Google Summer of Code 2013! I’ll be working with the great group behind the Shogun Machine Learning Toolbox. I am going to be working on Approximate Joint Diagonalization (ADJ) of matrices for Independent Component Analysis (ICA) and Blind Source Separation (BSS) - think the cocktail party problem.
I’ll be posting about my progress here regularly so stay tuned!
