Vault-OS : ThinkBoy recognizes me on camera!

Using example code as a guide, I got motion tracking for video from any input source running last year in C#. I have been using this as my basis for platform orientation and IF laser pointer spotting in the experimental setup in my study.

Last night I was able to stream the genetic memory of Thinkboy to a 4GB compact flash card set up as the second IDE controller between runs of the system and Thinkboy is able to distinguish my face from my wife and children easily. If you read the documentation for the AForge AI open source library you will find ample support for serialization to any storage medium. I was having to train Thinkboy each and every time I booted it up to recognize my face, so it wasn't much use to me until I got it's brain onto an archive device. I have nicknamed the general AI system for Thinkboy (which is really nothing more than the applied code I leeched from AForge AI) as "Integrity" to describe the serialized brain on disk. So if you want to support "Integrity" in your version of Vault-OS you'd do well to set up a separate, atomic instance of a storage device to maintain it so you don't have to share this kind of data with your base cut of the code on your boot flash.

The real frontier for me is gesture recognition and I have been reading the docs of AForge to try to figure it out. I'm starting to get it and I have confidence now that training in gesture recognition won't just be an interesting exercise as a novelty now that I have figured out how to serialize Thinkboy's AForge brain to storage between runs. I have been running the image recognition routines in a separate worker thread and this seems to operate perfectly with the MS SAPI (Speech API library) without a single hinch in performance. My bottleneck in the past was running the COM port control of I2C together with SAPI and getting hideous degradations in performance with more than 1 i2C device online being polled. I seem to have this problem licked now, too, although I have yet to package it all in my little orange box and run it concurrently - I2C network, Speech Control, Visual recognition. That's a big milestone in and of itself. Previous tests were on my P3 board at 233 mhz .NET 1.1, Thinkboy's current board is now a VIA-GPC running at 1 Ghz, which should produce some nice results. I am offshoring the actual monitoring of the CCD cameras to another device with an IP server so this should allow ThinkBoy to concentrate on what it is supposed to do best - THINK and direct everything else in the Vault-OS system.

My baby is going to be uber-win when it is ready for primetime. It's going to be the OStest with the Mostest.

The Apocalypse Trifecta

That's what we called it ten years ago.

The media is screeching. "Hey! Like ... there's like a lot of bad stuff ... like ... happening at the same time! It's like ... a lot of trouble all at once! It's like ... we hit the apocalypse trifecta or something! Whoodathunkit?" This proves they are edjumifacated. They get paid to write down the blatantly obvious years after it is public knowledge everywhere else but the media.

Boneheads, you'd have to be legally blind not to have seen this pileup coming a long time ago. Once we realized there was another Ice Age coming way back in 1998, that clinched it for us. Too many troubles at once for a feeble, senile multikult like the West to possibly cope with.

Stay alert. Something is up. This is too coincidental. Seriously consider protection against exposure to this bug. It looks to be a biowarfare three-way join between the avian, swine and human flu which just appeared out of nowhere.

UPDATES Sunday, April 26, 2009:

Fears of a global epidemic

Mexico cancels public events of any kind! TSHTF! Martial law coming for Mexico?

Is "Captain Trips" out of the bag?

World Reeling From Financial Depression Cannot Take Another Shock

This thing was made in a lab!

These dopey media people could not predict sunset with an almanac at dawn... but they've been beating this drum again for a couple of months. Who gave them the heads up?

Is it time to BUGOUT/BUGDOWN yet?


Something wicked this way comes

Appeared to have started in Mexico same week as Navy epidemiological "drills and tests"

Mexico never had an epidemic in recent memory

Again, the strange oddities around the time of this outbreak are too numerous

Kills people in their prime, quite rapidly

Quarantine in the works? Something worse?

The CDC is saying it is too late to control and too late to contain.

Person-to-person aerosolized and seems to infect host rapidly

Your family's contribution to the environment will be to die.

.. and somebody has decided the time has come for sacrifice ...

FLASHBACK : Did these men die in order to protect this new bug from identification as a manufactured product?

Sociopaths are Infectious Carriers of Havoc that Transmit Their Disease Both Genetically and Through Social Vectors

The DSM-IV-TR, a widely used manual for diagnosing mental disorders, defines anti-social personality disorder as a pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others occurring since age 15 years, as indicated by three (or more) of the following:

  1. Failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest
  2. Deceitfulness, as indicated by repeated lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure
  3. Impulsivity or failure to plan ahead
  4. Aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults
  5. Reckless disregard for safety of self or others
  6. Consistent irresponsibility
  7. Lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another

The tragedy of the super predator class embedded in mankind's genes is that once they occupy the institutions they will force everybody else to behave as a sociopath or die wherever they can. This is why decline in a civilization is always irreversible. Chances are the people asking how we can solve this problem in public will simply be sociopaths trying to engineer more chaos and destruction, by constantly switching roles from laughing hyena to defender of the good. In time they come to play all the roles of society and all of them as dramatic theatre.

It may sound off-topic but in fact, this is why World War Three is an absolute lock.

SOCIOPATHY (Notice Wikipedia has no actual entry for this condition? That's because Wikipedia is run by sociopaths!!! Even their page for Sociopath is actually edited from the DSM-IV-TR version to describe "antisocial" behaviour instead!!!! {Not listening with proper attention to sociopaths, in other words})

The Anti-Federalists Were Right 200 Years Ago

Centralized government invariably becomes corrupt and grows to oppress the people unfortunate to live under it because of the basic nature of mankind. There is no way to change this, no communism or socialism or marxism that can ever circumvent this fact, no matter how solipsist the arguments put forward for it's virtues. Nationalism that is not simply an extension of a Federal Union with power entrusted in the States will always decline into tyranny.

By the way, read the letters written by common men two centuries ago to get a good idea of what incredible morons that modern "people" are in comparison. It's purely a gesture of generosity to describe moderns as "human," because most of them lack nearly all the key markers that differentiate men from beasts. They can't read, write, speak or think ... don't we have some sort of cut-off score where we have to reclassify them as something else? You could just call them Kwanzanians the way I do. I'm working on species nomenclature for the other fallen four : Canada, Australia, Europe and Iceland. How about "Hosanimals" for the Canadian breed, "Snowboons" for Iceland, "Yobatangs" for Australians and "Pommachimps" for Europe? This would allow naturalists in coming years to assign them to species divisions to distinguish them from the old world monkey family and Homo Sapiens in an authentic final solution for the missing link in man's evolution.

Vault-OS : Hoo-Haw!!! Coming along nicely!

That's all I'm going to say about that for now.

Hope I have time to take some screenshots and show it working inside of the shelter soon, possibly at end of the month. Got lots of stuff working together now in one seamless integrated package. I have I2C, NuDAM DAC and RS-485 all humming together under Windows NT on Thinkboy consolidating a lot of different I/O into one global pool for control and monitoring. The big breakthrough was discovering that shared memory mapping scheme I linked to previously. That code proved invaluable.

I also made substantial improvements in my natural language speech parsing for voice control with the MS Speech API. Response is getting better all the time. Thinkboy is starting to seem pretty clever, except for his synthesized voice which is still the crappy "Microsoft Mike" package that comes with the SAPI. I'm looking for a truly HE-MAN "Robby" style voice package with the comic-book retro feel if you know where to buy one. I will buy a Cepstral voice if it is all I can find but they are not all that close to what I want.

Russia Says Itz Coming

Provocation - The 'Kwa wants World War III to take the focus off their problems.

The Kwanzanians believe a good swift nuclear war might restore their fortunes.

Missile defense is a greased sluice into thermonuclear war.

The End of the 'Kwa Is Closer Than You Think

Most of the sheeple only know about the economy because that is what the media has put on the radar. Very few of them have any facility at all for thinking about the implications of things that might seem unrelated to people with weak minds. In fact, these subjects are vital associations they would need to make in order to go on living. The assumption of certain guarantees in their surroundings, like the current agricultural yields, are going to collapse quite suddenly as the climate cools for the next Ice Age. That's the tip of the iceberg (literally) in the store of problems that they do not perceive at present.

Nature herself seems to be in revolt against the Western world.

I see fissures forming at critical points all over this edifice and I forecast a very rapid collapse in the near future. Very, very rapid.

Terminators For World War III Nearly Ready To Go Into Production

Do you know what Vault-Co was telling you back in 2003? Well, mainstream media is announcing it in 2009 like it's news.

UPDATE : The Media Pretends To Get It, Long After It's Old News On Vault-Co
There are probably scarier ways to die. Being tracked and exterminated by a machine sent from a nation far across the sea would have to be up there in the top ten, however. Remember, it will be easier to program them to kill anybody than to kill only certain somebodies. You think human troops commit atrocities, wait until you see what these machines do in WW3. They'll be dropped in quadrants and told to eliminate anything inside that grid square. Those will be their only standing orders.
