So one of the only plus points of not getting any sleep due to the effects of the extreme diet for this bodybuilding show is insomnia, my mind gets very creative and forces me to start kicking off new ideas, projects, missions et!
So, if you saw my last post, I said I was gonna finish Hack24, fix Burf.co and sort the garage! So far, Burf.co is back up, but about to completely change, the garage is nearly finished being geared up as a robotics lab and Hack24 has not moved. I do want to finish hack24 but I don’t want to rush it and I want to harness my energy on some crazy robotics ideas while my brain still works 🙂
So the plan v2! Warning it’s a little bonkers, even for me!
Build a backend set of machine learning API’s that Burf.co, mobile devices, and my robots use to send and retrieve data. The idea is I could send it a question, a command or an image and it does some magic and responds.
- So for mobile devices, they would send images and text to speech, it would return ImageNet classification or answers to questions.
- Burf.co would become more of a knowledge base system using NLP to feed into other systems.
- There would also be a public facing chatbot which would hopefully learn off of all of this. Planning a system POC using AIML to test the waters
- This would all somehow be also brought together to add some usefulness to my future robotics projects (image classification, knowledge base, etc)
I brought some odd bits of hardware, upgraded the Burf.co server, brought some domains, and started rewriting Burf.co in Java. I decided I want to try and use a common language and randomly Java seemed the best fit (client, server, mobile etc)
It’s gonna be a slow progress but I think its gonna be exciting.
