GPT-3 vs other AI powered assistants

I have been kicking the tires with Open AI’s #GPT-3 . Based on the screenshot below, it might be easy to think “oh boy does the model think highly of itself”, but as with most things in life - the devil is in the details.😃 The screenshot below was a forked version of davinci engine and follows the Q&A structure. GPT-3 vs other AI assistants Using OpenAI’s API is quite simple; perhaps too simple!...

WSL2 +Ubuntu on Window 10 (2004)

One of the key advances in the latest version of Windows 10 (2004) is WSL2 (Windows Subsystem for Linux v2) - and whilst a version bump, it offers so much more. This allows us to run with near-native performance linux binaries ( ELF64 ). Before we get into the steps outlined to install WSL2, I also recommend installing Windows Terminal , and winget . Although not required, it does make it simpler to use and a better (dev) experience - especially when setting up a new workstation....

Azure Cognitive Services in containers is the smart way to go

My Story Remix from Build 2017

Some of the things you saw at the keynote are not in the RS3 build I am running but interesting possibilities nevertheless. There should have been a video here but your browser does not seem to support it.

On Culture

I have said in the past, Culture eats strategy for breakfast. One cannot fix culture - but rather lead with example and have others follow. This article on how Satya at Microsoft is expecting a culture shock to drive growth at Microsoft is a great example of this. Quite exciting days for Microsoft ahead.

HoloLens - Spectator view - allowing others to see what you are seeing

Microsoft just announced an update around the HoloLens that allows you to share on what you are seeing (from a first-person perspective) with others to make to more interactive. This is a combination of MRC (Mixed Reality Capture) which already exists and some new updates that address some of the short coming of the MRC - especially when working with a audience. The main use case on the spectator view - as the name suggests is to allow those in the room not wearing a device to see the holograms but also the interactions that the folks wearing HoloLens with their mixed reality experience....

How I feel each time I wear the HoloLens?

Honestly, I don’t think even Tony Stark can explain - this sums it up quite nicely and the music is just the cherry on top. :)

Real-time performance capture - HoloPortation?

Some of the folks working on PPI and HoloPortation team from MSR left and went to setup a new company called PerceptiveIO . They have recently published a paper called Fusion4D: Real0time performance capture of challenging scenes.  In that they cover some of the work around multi-view performance capture, the raw depth acquisition and preprocessing that needs to be done around that. This interestingly also handles deformation changes (e....
