Rafael Lozano-Hemmer - Projects "Pan-Anthem" is an interactive sound installation where the national anthem of every country in the World plays back on a movable speaker that is magnetically attached to a large wall. The speakers are precisely arranged to visualize national statistics: population, GDP, area, number of women in parliament, GINI, year of independence, HDI and so on. For example, when the work is configured to show military spending per capita, on the far left of the wall the public can hear the anthems of countries without military forces like Costa Rica, Iceland and Andorra while at the far right they can hear Saudi Arabia, Israel and the United States, which spend more than $2,000 per person per year. If no one is in the exhibition room all the speakers are silent, but as a visitor approaches a particular set of speakers these start playing automatically, creating a positional panoramic playback of anthems associated to similar statistics View Details.

We've all met great people on social media sites. And there is usually some singular trait that drew you to interact with these great people. However, as you get to know them, watch their Twitter stream and see who else they interact with, you probably get to know more interesting things about them.

In 1987, the biggest neck beards in tech held a conference on the Future of Hypertext and there were two camps, “Card Sharks” and “Holy Scrollers”. Machine Learning in Games Development In this article, I shall outline the current perceptions of 'Machine Learning' in the games industry, some of the techniques and implementations used in current and future games, and then explain how to go about designing your very own 'Learning Agent'. The Games Industry Machine Learning has been greeted with a certain amount of caution by games developers, and until recently, has not been used in any major games releases.
