home - Objectives: The h-node project aims at the construction of a hardware database in order to identify what devices work with a fully free operating system. The website is structured like a wiki in which all the users can modify or insert new contents. The h-node project is developed in collaboration and as an activity of the FSF. Contribute: You can contribute by creating an account at and editing its user-generated contents. Free software: In order to add a device to the h-node database, you must verify that it works using only free software. 1) A GNU/Linux distribution that is on the FSF's list of endorsed distributions 2) Debian GNU/Linux, with only the main archive area enabled. h-node lists only hardware that works with free drivers and without non-free firmware.

How to Build a Wireless Pi Camera Pan and Tilt Platform - Tuts+ Computer Skills Tutorial With the release of the Raspberry Pi camera module, taking high quality pictures, or video, with the Pi has become very simple. In this tutorial, I will show you how to attach the Pi camera module to your Pi and wirelessly control a pan tilt platform. In the process, I will cover topics that include attaching the Pi camera module, connecting and controlling servos with your Pi, command line control of the camera, and some low level video streaming commands. Set up and assemble the basic Pi components with the following steps. Burn the latest Raspbian image to the SD card following instructions in the tutorial How to Flash an SD Card for Raspberry PiPlug in the USB mouse/keyboard into the bottom USB portPlug in the USB Wifi adapter into the to USB port. Upon boot, the Pi will run through the first boot setup of raspi-config. After the Pi reboots to a desktop follow these instructions on how to use the GUI tool to configure your wifi network. Taking pictures with the Pi is very simple.

Transcripts Episode #32 PyPy.js - PyPy Python in Your Browser - [Talk Python To Me Podcast] Imagine a future where you are building that rich, client-side web app. You start by creating some backend services in Flask or Node, an HTML page, throw in a few divs and uls, and then you type <script src="" language="Python">. That future might just be possible, for the right types of applications, with Ryan Kelly's pypy.js project. This is Talk Python To Me with guest Ryan Kelly, show number 32, recorded Wednesday, September 30th 2015. [music intro] Welcome to Talk Python to Me. Sponsors This episode is brought to you by Hired and Codeship. Hey everyone. 1:51 Ryan, welcome to the show. 1:53 Thanks for having me. 1:54 I'm super excited that you are here today, we are going to talk about Python but in a place you typically do not find it- int he browser, right? 2:01 Yep. 2:02 Yeah there is a lot of cool projects out there, and I'm a huge fan of the one that you've been working on. 3:18 Yeah. 3:28 Yeah, sure. 5:00 That's right. 6:11 Right. 6:21 Sure. 7:11 Yeah, that's great. 7:53 Sure.

OpenStreetMap : pourquoi vous devriez l'utiliser OpenStreetMap (OSM), souvent appelé « la Wikipédia des cartes », gagnerait à être plus connu parmi les libristes. Je suis moi-même un contributeur récent, puisque j'ai appris à contribuer à OpenStreetMap grâce à une sympathique personne qui animait le stand OSM au FOSDEM 2013… et je suis devenu, depuis cette date, un contributeur assidu. Nous vous laissons découvrir ce retour d'expérience dans la suite de la dépêche. NdM : merci à Alexis de Lattre pour son journal. Base de données et moteurs de rendu Tout d'abord, il faut bien comprendre qu'OpenStreetMap en lui-même n'est que la base de données d'informations géographique (330 Gio sans compression et 20 Gio avec une compression PBF) et non un moteur de rendu ou de navigation. OpenStreetMap, l'Île de Mann OpenPisteMap, Chamonix OpenCycleMap, La Haie Hors ligne et points d'intérêt la possibilité de télécharger la carte en local sur son téléphone au format vectoriel et de pouvoir l'utiliser hors ligne.

The creation of the modern laptop The world's first commercial laptop—though that is certainly stretching the term—was the Osborne 1. When released in 1981, it cost $1,795, weighed 10.7kg (23.5lbs), and ran an operating system called CP/M. The 1983 Compaq Portable, which ran MS-DOS, was even larger (13kg) and cost $3,590. Neither had a battery, though an aftermarket battery for the Osborne 1 lasted an hour. At the time, neither of these computers was actually called a "laptop;" they were portables that, in a pinch, could be lugged around. We've come a long way since then. Pick up your laptop. Okay, you can put your laptop back down. All of that, though, is nothing without a battery. Don't stick a fork in me or I'll explode Originally commercialised by Sony in 1991, lithium-ion batteries now power just about every consumer-oriented portable device. "Lithium-ion was the driving force that launched microelectronic portable devices," Peter H.L. Solid-state batteries

Algorithms of the Mind — Deep Learning 101 “Science often follows technology, because inventions give us new ways to think about the world and new phenomena in need of explanation.” Or so Aram Harrow, an MIT physics professor, counter-intuitively argues in “Why now is the right time to study quantum computing”. He suggests that the scientific idea of entropy could not really be conceived until steam engine technology necessitated understanding of thermodynamics. Quantum computing similarly arose from attempts to simulate quantum mechanics on ordinary computers. So what does all this have to do with machine learning? Much like steam engines, machine learning is a technology intended to solve specific classes of problems. Not Computer Vision, But Computer Imagination Five years ago, deep learning pioneer Geoff Hinton (then at the University of Toronto, now at Google) published the following demo. Hinton had trained a five-layer neural network to recognize handwritten digits when given their bitmapped images. On Concepts and Intuitions
