Yesterday I attended the inauguration of the Democratizing Technology exhibit @ Museo della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci, easily the coolest museum in Italy from a geek’s point of view. The exhibit is sponsored by Ford and aims to show how the new car embedded “intelligent systems” work; I was responsible to create 2 interactive softwares to demonstrate traffic sign recognition and voice recognition.
The sign recognition turned out really nice: kids can draw their own traffic signs, give them a name, train the software and easily visualize how recognition happens. In order to let also grown-up, nerdy kids have some fun, I’ll post the source code on my portfolio site.
The other software focuses mainly on sound visualization and comparison.
If you are in Milan during the next couple of months, be sure to visit the museum, have a coffee in the beautiful S.Ambrogio area and, of course, play with my interactives🙂
