Constructing Modern Knowledge returned to Manchester, New Hampshire this summer and it was awesome! I posted a Twitter thread but Gary badgered me to expand upon it, so here we are!
It is always a pleasure to work with the faculty that Gary and Sylvia assemble! Rather than teaching assembled groups of people, our jobs are to ask questions; provide prompts that help people get over, around, or under obstacles; provide technical support on a variety of hardware and software platforms; goof off; dine; and befriend participants.
They showed a demonstration of a Smart Hat that interfaced with a website to train AI models on movement, for example, nodding yes or shaking your head no, and then having the AI predict what you were doing once the model was fleshed out a bit with examples. It was pretty cool to see in action.
