Today, Manca, Luka and I presented the Compositional hierarchical model at the Music of Science session at Music Tech Fest in Ljubljana. As a part of his undergraduate degree, Luka built an awesome transcription editor which uses the CHM as classifier. It will probably never reach version 1.0 since the “ideas” stack grows exponentially. However, we are planning on providing a freeware version shortly.
Manca showed how the CHM can be used for music generation – aka. how to build a hammond we can’t afford :)
It’s the sixth time in a row this year – and it was great! with 22 elementary school students, we created 11 different AppInventor projects. And as every year so far, the first three groups got special prizes from SiMobil! Here are some screenshots (literally screenshots of the screen) of this year’s projects. For more hi-res images of the FRI Summer school 2015, visit this link.
Here are the screenshots
An AppInventor History Quiz
A pong variation of the game
Mario game – something which is really difficult to make with AppInventor
Mario died :(
Air hockey – Andorid version
The final level of the Maze – almost impossible to complete. Almost = 1 hour of trying
This is a new one. It reminds me of an old game called Bumpy! Nostalgia moment coming in 3, .. 2, .. 1 …
Follow the line – AppInventor style!
that’s all about the last week. This week, we are organising CREA summer academy where we form new startups and discuss innovative ideas for the cities of the future! See more here: https://www.facebook.com/creasummeracademy. More description with pics is coming soon.
Although Quora mostly seems to be yet another forum/FB style platform, it sometimes provides interesting “facts” or random stuff to read about. I gave up on actually getting any answer by Quora since 1) people are biased in the same way as on any other communication platform and 2) it’s slower than most of forums. Still, i get an email every day and sometimes browse top stories.
Today was one of those days. I read the story about google history and proceeded to the given link. No surprise about the top 5 pages, but still, I did not expect msdn website to be in my top five.
My google history so far
It also seems I google less and less throughout the week – on Sunday I know everything (or just don’t use the computer as much as on other days) and forget everything on Monday. :)
So, what’s the point? It seems Google wants to make a statement regarding the transparency. Still, they want to show what kind of information they store and work with. On the other hand, we know Google knows everything, we just don’t care as much as we used to.
In the end, I just wanted to see some shiny graphs and I got them :) Good job, Google!
