How Machine Learning Will Change Augmented Reality 101

An anonymous reader writes "Augmented reality is already adding digital information to the world around us — but the next step to making it truly useful will be when it starts to use elements of machine learning to understand the real world, Mike Lynch, boss of machine learning software specialist Autonomy told — also explaining machine learnings links with the theorems devised by 18th century cleric Thomas Bayes."

    This leads me to pimp my favorite new site/game/lesson... what is this? It's cool, that's all. Check out this neat implementation of a genetic algorithm to produce a cool demonstration computer-generated evolution: []

    If you can get a computer to do [those tasks] then that's a phenomenal saving, and it frees up the human to do something more interesting.

    Right. That's what's been happening. Humans have been freed up to do more interesting things, and for more pay, too. Uh huh.
    So, the more we make machines do more of the work people do, the more interesting work there is for the rest of us? Those of us who don't own the machines? Those of us who need to make a decent living? Does this guy live on planet earth? Can it be that in 2011 there are still people in decision-making positions who still believe that?

When you are working hard, get up and retch every so often.
