3D Video, Camera accelerometer gyro inertia, depth, all sky, global correlation networks

I am watching many live videos on the Internet.  It is an exploding social phenomena on the Internet.  I am interested in the machine vision, artificial intelligence, image processing, sensor correlation network sides of it as well. Here I am looking at a bridge over a river.  At the moment I happened to start, it

IMT is now Atomica – Please also try making gravitational sensors

IMT sent me a note about their name change. I wrote back to ask them to work harder on gravitational imaging sensors which can be adaptations of MEMS accelerometer technologies they are already familiar with. I am encouraging anyone who makes MEMS accelerometers and inertial sensors to at least try to prepare for gravitational sensor

Comment on Odaiba Tokyo Live Webcam – Standards for live Internet data streams and archives

Dear Reader, I am watching your live webcam at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVmEjdoD2x8 with the title レインボーブリッジと東京タワー 4Kライブカメラ、お台場東京、高層マンションからライブ配信。首都高速台場線、お天気カメラお台場東京。【ちんあなご】Livecamera RainbowBridge I was curious what kind of camera you are using, its lens and horizontal field of view.  There are thousands of live webcams on the Internet now, and no standards for documentation.  I personally think it would be good if

Using stars for reference and calibration, Global Education needs and opportunities

Mitchell, Thanks for your work on RGB and chromacity of stars. I was looking at these two live videos on YouTube for Maunakea,Hawaii live all sky camera and its associated, and fairly nicely synchronized, star chart Live All Sky: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPWz3mDvAuY Star Chart: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1xkCMa0uQE I think these would make good teaching aides for astronomy groups world-wide.

Improving the quality of online live video streams, super resolution methods for stars

Ben, I am still trying to track all online live videos, particularly those that can be used for education. This one, at the bottom of the description has a link to a Google app to set the clock.  I want to have time when you slide the slider, not hours from “now” which changes constantly.

Large computers hosting associated global communities of global projects

Bill, For the Internet Foundation, I am reviewing the role of large computers and computer arrays.  What started me on this slightly ahead of schedule was the ExaScale group at E4S-Project.github.io | GitHub website for E4S Project and then today looking at the Dark Energy Survey that leads back to NCSA. My outline for a

Visiting NSF NOIRLab for the first time – looking for pixels from telescopes

Hello, For the Internet Foundation, I am looking at many data and model sharing efforts on the Internet. To judge difficulty of use, gather notes on practices, policies, methods, content, groups, and links between efforts.  I am posting this note also to /?p=1230 so more people can see it. If you want me to change

Please correct an error on Sciencing.com, Physics of Plasma Globes

I happened on a nicely done study of the plasma ball.  The filaments are re-created every cycle.  They start as spherically symmetric (probably depending on the roughness of the sphere they use) and then extend outward at fast but finite speed. Each cycle, the tendrils (that is the most common name so far) follow the

Note to Astronomical League

https://www.astroleague.org/ I found a few YouTube live all sky cameras. They are for weather, weather research, astronomical viewing planning, a tiny bit of actual teaching of human astronomical methods, some moon and sun projects, some cosmic ray and lightning, some comet, some other things. I just wondered if your members and groups are doing this,
