Poor Lunch , Great company

The food for Wednesdays evening meal was not the best, however the company was very interesting. I talked with Paul Rhodes and Peter Cowling from the University of Bradford and Peter Drayton who is on the Rotor team.


Machine Learning

I have just attended a very interesting talk by Christopher Bishop (MSR Cambridge ) about Machine Learning. He covered “Super-resolution enhancement of pictures” which is adding information to an image using an offset image or human determined perspective. Intelligent Edit and Removal of information from pictures and face tracking. I highly recommend attending a presentation by him. The features discussed will be present in a soon to be released Microsoft product.
