Multi-task learning: Solving different computer vision problems with a single model
12 November, 2020
In the last few years, significant improvements in computer vision were made, making it possible to obtain important information from images. Some of the challenges for a better understanding of a scene are the detection of people and the recognition of the activities they are performing. In this post, I'm going to show a method that I proposed to do a single end-to-end model able to detect people, estimate their pose, and recognize each one of their activities by their pose.

Are you ready for your Neuralink Brain Implant?
30 October, 2020
Human brain consumes incredibly low amounts of energy, has great longevity, and requires little maintenance. No man-made computing hardware comes even close to a human brain in these qualities. Right now, the brain is mostly a black box to us. We know verry little about how it works. As of yet, scientists have had a limited toolset to study the inner workings of a human brain. Devices that interface with the brain could help us better understand it, repair, and possibly improve it. The most pr

Blockchain became a buzz word by 2017, made famous by the single-use case that for many people seemed almost synonymous with Blockchain –Bitcoin. The question on people's minds was: "What is blockchain, and how can I make money with it?" What really drew attention was the valuation of a single Bitcoin hitting an astonishing $20,000 in December 2017, a peak that it has not been able to climb again after rolling back down to $3,000 within a year. But the blockchain rush was on. Investors were fr
