Friday Link Pack

AUGUST 4, 2017

Link Pack1 is a set of recommendations that you, as I did, might enjoy or find interesting. This week, some content relates to what I've been exploring on the field of machine intelligence. First, a video of Augmented Reality's "Aha Moment" by Trixi Studios which uses ARKit and real-time image processing2.

  • A great site I came across recently: Unsplash. High-quality photography for free. No attribution required.
  • A quote: "The effort to save effort is an effort." —Ortega y Gasset
  • Hidden Folks. A beautiful, hand-drawn, animated game for iOS and Mac.
  • My latest stuff on Dribbble.
  • Interested in Machine Learning? Keras is "a high-level neural network API, written in Python and capable of running on top of TensorFlow [Google], CNTK [Microsoft], and Theano [Université de Montréal]."
  • Three days ago, Netflix open-sourced vectorflow — a minimalist neural network library optimized for sparse data and single machine environments. (See on Github.)
  • Other resources to learn about Machine Learning (recommended by @jongold) are FloydHub and Deep Learning with Python by Francois Chollet.
  • Mac keyboard shortcuts
  • Psst! I also write on Getting Simple. Subscribe here to support and join my journey to simplicity.

Have a great weekend!

  2. In their own words: "We are giant fans of the original video by Aha and director Steve Barron, and especially the legendary animators Michael Patterson and Candace Reckinger who came up with the beautiful technique and style we were trying to emulate. This work was made very quickly and just for fun, there is a lot of room for improvement. We inspired by the intersection of emerging mass technology like ARKit and visual effects that traditionally have been difficult to recreate. Everything is live in camera and works as shown."
