Jens “Google Plus Yoda” Graikowski578,452HANGOUT FOR THE FIRST F1 GRAND PRIX OF THE SEASON Last year we did several "Formula 1 Race hangouts" and though I'd have wished attendance to have been a bit higher, we had great fun with the few who did come. This year (after G+ has settled down a bit) I hope that we get a few more peeps to watch the races together with us. Here is how it works: ➢ We all watch the race on our own individual TV sets. There is not going to be a race broadcast in the hangout for several reasons. ▸ A broadcast would take over the hangouts audio and would make it impossible for us to talk. ▸ It means, we can all watch the race in the language we prefer (in my case it's German). ▸ The broadcast would take up a hangout spot. I'd rather have one of you guys there. ➢ I'll invite participants in two steps. ▸ About an hour before the race starts (find out here, when exactly that will be in your time zone: http://bit.ly/Ynm5nT) I will invite all of those of the "Google+ Paddock Club".  ▸ Just before the race I will invite my Formula 1 circle. GET YOU GOOGLE+ PADDOCK CLUB PASS! So if you want to make sure, that you get a spot, join the "G+PC"! To join the club you can either click on "Going" at this event or +1 the second comment at this post: http://bit.ly/ZfYUhL. Either way you'll be added to the "G+PC" circle. I'd also like your ideas on how to make the Formula 1 Race Hangout more interesting.Formula 1 Race Hangout - Melbourne/Australia2013-03-17 07:00:0048  
Tim Utzig15,137Thought it might be fun to post a pic of your country, city or state this week, now through Wednesday - as many or as few as you'd like. Just thought it would be a fun way to share a little bit about your country, experiences and some of your favorite destinations and maybe meet a new person. Just take a pic and post it here. Open to invite friends as well.  #YourFavoritePlace  Your Favorite Place2012-11-17 18:00:00188

Twenty years ago this day, one of the random generators in life put me on a plane to Switzerland with a one way ticket and all my possessions in a backpack. I was supposed to be here one year only, but life knows better than that. Plus, once you have tasted the chocolate there is no going back.
Of course, I'm proud of my Mexican roots, and thankful for my friends in the US and in Europe. But for now, this is the place I call home. Therefore, today I celebrate the day with the best chocolate cake there is.

Talkwalker case study on Euro 2016 sponsorship. An interesting comparison on Visual Ranking versus Text Ranking.
The study shows a drinks company with a high visual ranking (number of times that the brand is shown on social media images) but a low number of mentions. On the other hand, a sports articles company is almost not visible but highly mentioned in social media, despite the fact that they are not official sponsors of the event.

And a large fast food sponsor is neither visually seen nor mentioned. Did their investment paid of?

At Weavr we are developing a Virtual Reality application. And while Unity takes you a long way developing for multiple platforms, you still need to do some special coding for every Headset since they have different user interfaces. With limited resources we need to prioritize our work to have the maximum impact. We turned to Talkwalker and social media to help us understand which of the Headset apps we should push out first.

A nice example of a real world Virtual reality application.

How a Big Box Store Changed My Attitude about Virtual Reality

Because I'm in +martin shervington's Plus Your Business Academy and he's tracking and experimenting witVR and 360-degree photography, I've been more aware of what's happening with virtual reality than I otherwise would.

I admit to only a modicum of personal interest, a smidge more professionally -- and I'd be remiss if I didn't confess to some nose-wrinkling now and then.

That changed a bit with a post awhile back by +Miguel Rodriguez, and I experienced a bigger shift today when I saw this article.

A month publishing Facebook Instant Articles
It has been a bit over a month that Facebook opened up publishing Instant Articles to everyone. We jumped in early and after a few days had added the capability of publishing stories as Instant Articles to our Weave my story platform.
Try it here: http://www.weavemystory.com/instantarticlesintro.aspx

According to Facebook, Instant Articles receive 20% more clicks, have a 30% higher sharing rate and users are 70% more likely to read until the end. To you as a content publisher this means increase in viewership and higher circulation of existing content by just wrapping the media that you are already generating in a smarter way.

A glimpse inside the mind of a machine learning algorithm

Every day we are reading the minds of others around us. The more you know somebody the more you understand how they tick, how they think. How will they react if we throw a new idea their way. Have you ever wondered how it would feel to understand how a machine thinks the same as you do with fellow humans?

At Weavr we have found a way to take a peek inside the mind of the machine. And by machine I mean a deep learning image captioning algorithm. We created an interface where you can upload one image of your choice. This image is then presented to a set of image recognition and captioning algorithms which return words of what they “see”. We then use these words to look for public available content to present it along the seed image.
For example, uploading a coffee art image results in the system creating a storyaro... more »

At Weavr we have found a way to take a peek inside the mind of the machine. And by machine I mean a deep learning image captioning algorithm. We created an interface where you can upload one image of your choice. This image is then presented to a set of image recognition and captioning algorithms which return words of what they “see”. We then use these words to look for public available content to present it along the seed image.
For example, uploading a coffee art image results in the system creating a story around coffee, with espresso bar and coffee maker included.

The system also has the capability of selecting a given image to add more content to the initial collection of images. And here is where things start to get interesting.

Basically we started getting a feeling at how the model understands the world. We throw in a bridge and it comes back with bridges, water, forests. We pick another bridge with more water and it comes back with lakeside views and sunsets. It feels like chatting with a friend about a topic and letting the conversation wander off.

We also see how the system is trying to make sense of the world when it fails. We tried with a picture of someone holding the phone to take a selfie in front of a group of friend. The system thought it was folks playing volleyball. There is indeed a similarity between someone with a hand up holding a phone in front of a group of friends and someone serving a ball in a volleyball match.

The model identifies a girl taking a selfie of a group as someone serving the ball in a Volleyball match
Psychologists call our ability to get in the shoes of other people having a “theory of mind”. By playing with the system in this way we get a feeling of how the system “sees the world”. It’s like listening to a kid explain something that they have seen for the first time. They try to relate to things by explaining them using concepts that they know.

Energy saving in smart homes based on consumer behavior data
Our paper "Energy saving in smart homes based on consumer behavior data" was accepted at the IEEE International Smart Cities conference.  We have pre published it in arXiv under: http://arxiv.org/abs/1509.05722

This paper presents a case study of a recommender system that can be used to save energy in smart homes without lowering the comfort of the inhabitants. We developed an algorithm that uses consumer behavior data and machine learning to suggest actions for inhabitants to reduce the energy consumption of their homes. The system mines for frequent and periodic patterns in the event data provided by the Digitalstrom home automation system. These patterns are converted into association rules, prioritized and compared with the current behavior of the inhabitants. If the system detects an opportunities to save... more »

Energy saving in smart homes based on consumer behavior data
Our paper "Energy saving in smart homes based on consumer behavior data" was accepted at the IEEE International Smart Cities conference.  We have pre published it in arXiv under: http://arxiv.org/abs/1509.05722

This paper presents a case study of a recommender system that can be used to save energy in smart homes without lowering the comfort of the inhabitants. We developed an algorithm that uses consumer behavior data and machine learning to suggest actions for inhabitants to reduce the energy consumption of their homes. The system mines for frequent and periodic patterns in the event data provided by the Digitalstrom home automation system. These patterns are converted into association rules, prioritized and compared with the current behavior of the inhabitants. If the system detects an opportunities to save energy without decreasing the comfort level it sends a recommendation to the residents.

The system was implemented and deployed to a set of test installations.  The test participants were able to rate the impact of the recommendations on their comfort. We used this feedback to adjust the system parameters and make it more accurate during a second test phase.  The system produced 160 recommendations on the first phase and 120 on the second phase.  We found out that a recommender system that uses an algorithm that mines patterns with high confidence, independent of their frequency and periodicity, might achieve better results and a higher acceptance by users.  

The system was developed by two master students from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland FHNW under the supervision of Prof. Holger Wache.___

Twenty years ago this day, one of the random generators in life put me on a plane to Switzerland with a one way ticket and all my possessions in a backpack. I was supposed to be here one year only, but life knows better than that. Plus, once you have tasted the chocolate there is no going back.
Of course, I'm proud of my Mexican roots, and thankful for my friends in the US and in Europe. But for now, this is the place I call home. Therefore, today I celebrate the day with the best chocolate cake there is.
