Watch AI Learn a game

So, they’ve taught (or AI has learned; semantics)  AI to do some pretty phenomenal things. Much more advanced than simply playing a shooting game. However, it’s very cool to be able to watch the actual progression of AI learning to do its thing. I’m really jazzed about what AI can bring us, especially what I can learn to do with AI. I already have my first project in mind. It’s simple, and basically a client of a text-based game, but you have to learn somewhere right? Enjoy the view!


Arduino Extension for Visual Studio

Sweet! I use Visual Studio for a lot of things in my life… C# development, Xamarin, Ionic / Angular (VS Code)… and I just accidentally happened across an extension that allows you to work with your arduino in Visual Studio via Visual Micro. I’m still playing with it, but from what I see there is a lot of support in the Arduino forums. Seems like it could be a very cool thing!

Head to Visual Studio. Open Tools -> Extensions and Updates. Search online for Arduino. The name of the extension is Arduino IDE for Visual Studio.


Ocarina Controlled Raspberry Pi

I’m not going to lie, I like this.  While I probably won’t include as many controllers, it would be a fun project. And this ocarina I have sitting next to me on my desk would become a handier device than, you know, an ocarina by itself!
