  • We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. – Plato

  • Either we conform our desires to the truth or we conform the truth to our desires. ― Os Guinness

  • Found this little jewel. The #Palm Pre with #WebOS was my goto phone for quite some time. Was about to just throw out, but got the urge to see it boot one last time. Glad I did.

  • Wow, totally forgot about a patent received for converting Microchip PIC assembly to Renesas R8C. Just found all sorts of design docs and the original patent description.

  • Came across a reference design we did back in 2008 for Arrow and Altera (now part of Intel) related to FPGAs and intelligent power management. Fun times…

  • Found my older BB devices while purging. Still miss the @Blackberry Hub on OS 10 :-(

  • Came across 200 pieces of Cinterion (now part of Thales) cellular modules based on Qualcomm’s chipset. Hate to throw these out. If anyone’s interested, contact me.

  • The Purge

    Over the past quarter century as an engineer, entrepreneur, business owner, and hoarder, I’ve accumulated a lot of stuff. In fact, there’s a whole room full of it I’m finally going to go through once and for all.

    While moving around boxes today, most of what I saw are just boring files, but I did stumble upon some vintage electronics and other (possibly) valuable or interesting artifacts. For the next few days (my wife has provided me with a totally unrealistic deadline), I’ll be consumed with this chore so figured to document some of the more interesting finds.

    Let the “fun” begin…

  • When gifts are replaced by rights, so is gratitude replaced by claims. And claims breed resentment. — Scruton

  • Everything that exists is hymn to God and we sing our harmonies to become part of the grand chorus of creation. - Rabbi Wolpe

  • When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost.- Billy Graham

  • When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world. — George Washington Carver

  • Deep Learning for NLP: An Overview of Recent Trends

    In a timely new paper, Young and colleagues discuss some of the recent trends in deep learning based natural language processing (NLP) systems and applications.

  • OpenCV People Counter

    In this tutorial you will learn how to build a “people counter” with OpenCV and Python. Using OpenCV, we’ll count the number of people who are heading “in” or “out” of a department store in real-time.

  • Text Classification is Your New Secret Weapon

    This article is part of an on-going series on NLP. You can also check out Part 1. In this series, we are learning how to write programs that can understand text written by humans.

  • Report on Text Classification using CNN, RNN & HAN

    Hello World!! I recently joined Jatana.ai as NLP Researcher (Intern ?) and I was asked to work on the text classification use cases using Deep learning models. In this article I will share my experiences and learnings while experimenting with various neural networks architectures.

  • Amazon acquires virtual pharmacy PillPack

    This morning Amazon broke the news that it is acquiring virtual pharmacy PillPack. With this, the online retail giant that has made itself famous for “one-click shopping” for consumer goods is positioning to expand its services to include prescription medication. 

  • Miniaturizing Wireless Medical Wearables

    Traditionally, small chip antennas used in RF-enabled medical devices have required a designated ground “keep out” area to minimize interference from other components and ensure the ideal radiation pattern for wireless signals.

  • Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you rather would have talked. - Mark Twain

  • Simple blockchain in Ada

    Everyone talks about blockchain these days. Everyone tries to apply the technology everywhere, even when it does’t make sense. So let’s learn by doing and try to implement the simple blockchain from scratch. And let’s do this in Ada!

  • Convolutional Neural Networks from the ground up

    When Yann LeCun published his work on the development of a new kind of neural network architecture [1], the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), his work went largely unnoticed.

  • These Smart Socks Could Kick Diabetic Foot Ulcers to the Curb

    A new digital health company wants to has a new wearable technology that could knock the socks off of patients with diabetes.
