Yesterday I was fiddling with colours, toying with stylesheets and thinking to myself how much easier it is to refurbish a blog than to, say, paint my kitchen. Then I started counting the hours I’ve spent learning MoveableType, adapting templates, rebuilding stylesheets, dabbling with colours. It adds up to at least the 3-4 hours a day for five days it took me to paint the kitchen. At least I don’t have to put up with the smell of drying paint. And I can use the kitchen.

Amazingly the blog refurbishing (still, incidentally, transitional) has coincided with a burst of writing on my thesis. Which I’ve promised myself will be absolutely utterly done by the end of April. Yup.

    Nice layout, though I do miss the “Let’s blog it!” icon. 😉 BTW: the fonts on the page don’t look very nice on Linux machines without Truetype fonts – you might want to tweak the CSS template a bit to accomodate these users as well.

    And I know, the let’s blog it icon’s good. Perhaps I can fit it in again…

Four visual registers for imaginaries of machine vision

I’m thrilled to announce another publication from our European Research Council (ERC)-funded research project on Machine Vision: Gabriele de Setaand Anya Shchetvina‘s paper analysing how Chinese AI companies visually present machine vision technologies. They find that the Chinese machine vision imaginary is global, blue and competitive.  […]
