MerioSRabbelier: ping :)09:14
SRabbelierMerio: pong!09:14
MerioAfter hours and hours of train I'm here again :) Any news?09:15
SRabbelierMerio: hehee, how'd it go?09:16
MerioSRabbelier: great as the other two times, even if fewer talks this time09:16
SRabbelierMerio: awesome :), did you learn much?09:17
MerioSRabbelier: I've got in touch with a framework for web apps called Seaside, but it uses some smalltalk language which I'm not confident with, but many ideas seemed interesting to me09:18
SRabbelierMerio: cool :), learning about new stuff is always exciting :D09:18
MerioSRabbelier: than an app for build panoramic photos, an opensource webcam and a derivative of JUnit (called JExample) that seems to be more manageable09:19
SRabbelierMerio: an opensource webcam? that's awesome!09:19
SRabbelierMerio: where can I buy one? :D09:20
SRabbelierMerio: JExample? Sounds cute09:20
MerioSRabbelier: found an OSM contributor too (OpenStreetMap is the community which I joined through GSoC)09:20
SRabbelierMerio: cool, did you two talk? :)09:21
MerioSRabbelier: it costs about 200 euros, can't remember the URL, let me find it :) No, I did my talk in July for GSoC, then went there just for listening :)09:22
SRabbelierMerio: holy cow, 200 euros? :|09:23
SRabbelierMerio: I can get a regular cam for 20 bucks09:23
MerioSRabbelier: yes IIRC it comes with 64 Mb of RAM and is very extensible via software (it has an SSH server inside)09:24
SRabbelierMerio: it's a webcam...?09:24
SRabbelierMerio: why didn't they add the kitchen sink while at it? :P09:25
MerioSRabbelier: To be fair I didn't understand if it was 200 euros or 200 swiss francs, sometimes they talked in German and I lost some part of the discussion :P09:25
SRabbelierMerio: 200 Swiss francs = 134.895016 Euros09:26
SRabbelierstill a shittonna money though09:26
MerioSRabbelier: actually it's built for example to have some custom image processing inside, so you can do everything you want with that :)09:26
SRabbelierMerio: heeheh, ok :)09:26
MerioSRabbelier: yes I know, everyone was a little bit wondered about the costs09:27
SRabbelierMerio: maybe it'll go down?09:27
MerioSRabbelier: hope to, I think their main aim in this very moment is to find some companies which want them to build custom things around this thing, or perhaps some other customized components09:28
Lennie|GoneImage processing is cool ^_^10:01
Lennie|GoneBuilt a lego robot that could navigate through a course of objects like oranges, candles, cups in the given order in MATLAB10:02
Lennie|Goneand Sverre and I both built a seperate system for Relevance Feedback Image Finding ^_ ^10:03
SRabbelier(which sucked rather badly :P)10:04
MerioLennie|Gone, SRabbelier: cool :)10:08
Lennie|GoneSRabbelier: My application did not :D10:09
Lennie|GoneIt could even use images from google :P10:09
SRabbelierLennie|Gone: it still took way too many iterations10:09
SRabbelierLennie|Gone: on any large size dataset it'd be useless :P10:10
Lennie|Goneit didnt perform too bad on all the sets combined though10:10
Lennie|Gonebut on the real datasets they use in research it would certainly die :P\10:10
SRabbelierLennie|Gone: that's not a large size dataset :D10:10
SRabbelierexactl ^_^10:10
Lennie|Gone<- Is gonna continue his rampage on 2nd year students that fail their algorithmic excersises :)10:12
Lennie|Gone(which means back to work)10:13
SRabbelierLennie|Gone: enjoy ;)10:13
Lennie|Goneyou wouldnt believe the crap they write in Java :D10:13
Lennie|GoneI praise the one student who made their solution multi-threaded and gave him bonus points :D10:13
SRabbelierLennie|Gone: lol, awesome10:15
