It is the generation and accuracy of the ground truth corpus and annotation that has a lot of my attention. Once you have ground truth, you can erode and dilate until you find a match, or use heuristics or other segmentation methods.
But it’s the “what you are attempting to conform to?” which grabs my fascination, not just with computer vision but with concepts, metaphors, any kinds of matching.
I didn’t even know it was called “ground truth” until yesterday but as soon as I saw it in the middle of a paper on spectral morphology, I was like OMG THAT’S THE THING…
That’s how I use these things as well. All this learning brings forth practical and tangible metaphors that can cross fields.
Long story short: How do you know what you’re looking for without knowing what you’re looking for?
That’s the essence
That’s it right there! And – what I’m hoping to do is to find it BEFORE I know I’m looking for it. Marketers know how to do this just fine.But why should they have all the fun?
I did sentiment analysis back in 01-ish in Microsoft Excel, although it didn’t have a name that I knew of.I was just given a hush-hush (stolen) CD-ROM with 80 char or less customer responses and I had to figure out how to classify their moods.It was challenging but a fun challenge and I did it.
It had about 100,000 which was a lot for me, as Excel only could handle I think 65,000 rows at the time.But thankfully I knew enough visual basic for applications to get by and used excel as holding pen for a “sentiment database” I made and was able to process through them quickly once it was set up.Very satisfying.
I would love to be involved with that stuff.I had biofeedback as a kid, where I could control a computer with my “feelings” which is probably why I always felt a close connection to computers.Watching a screen, changing moods, making video game things move and lines go up and down. It was cool and still is
holy crap that OpenBCI is just like that biofeedback stuff I had as a kid. It wasn’t a handy cap though but gooey sticky pads, and there were other connection spots like heart and finger, but it’s the same notion.Ok, I’m just gong to be satisfying that “It Exists” and watch others do it. Otherwise, I’ll be sinking $$$ Thank you – this is nice to see.
TMS though I probably wouldn’t mess with that myself. I’ll gladly monitor but fields are tricky things. I’ll watch others do it but I don’t want to invoke what I can’t banish.
auditory hemisynch wouldn’t work with me as I’m profoundly deaf in my left ear and limited hearing in my “good ear”.I use a lot of imagination to simulate a working left ear, as well as filling in notes > 5000hz (which is my hearing mechanism’s cut-off, but my imagination can go much higher via octaves
My senses are all out of whack through being a premie.So, I use my sensory inputs as “inspiration” for my imagination rather than as anything solid or concrete.
For me, it’s “my normal”. Others may have extra powers than I do, but I maximize my own as much as I can.
I’m a HUGE fan of WordNet, as messy as it is, so anything using it grabs my interest.
