7. Oooh, subvocalization

Categories: None -- Permalink
From Slashdot:

alex_guy_CA writes "Yahoo News has a story about technology that comes close to reading thoughts not yet spoken, by analyzing nerve commands to the throat. 'A person using the subvocal system thinks of phrases and talks to himself so quietly it cannot be heard, but the tongue and vocal cords do receive speech signals from the brain,' said developer Chuck Jorgensen, of NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California. Jorgensen's team found that sensors under the chin and one each side of the Adam's apple pick up the brain's commands to the speech organs, allowing the subauditory, or 'silent speech' to be captured. The story indicates the method could be useful on space missions or other difficult working conditions."

5. New Muse keyword: :osuffix

Categories: MuseMode#3 -- Permalink
If you derive one file from another produced by Muse (ex: PDF from <nop>LaTeX from Muse), then use :suffix to specify the extension of the intermediate file (.tex in this example) and :osuffix to specify the output. See muse-derive-style for more details.


4. More thoughts about my research interest

I _would_ very much like a text-based interface that allowed me to easily navigate through all of the data in my personal store. Zoe (http://zoe.nu/) looks interesting, but it's outside the way I work.

I'm interested in the kind of massively hyperlinked personal information management that you describe in TODL. Text-based navigation through an automatically-extracted graph would be fantastic.

As for implicit linking, word vectors are often used to find similar documents. The Remembrance Agent developed at MIT displays a running list of N items relevant to the words around point. Time and location may also cue document retrieval.

It doesn't have to stop at personal information like TODOs or notes. Why not generate source code as well? With literate programming tools in the style implemented by Leo (http://leo.sourceforge.net). Leo is a tree-based organizer. Cloned nodes allow you to have arbitrary graphs and output is customizable. This is close to what you envisioned with TODL, although it seems to be a primarily graphical tool.

Your description of TODL mentioned the KM system developed by P. Clark and B. Porter, but it seems to require explicitly encoded facts and queries. I would like to do research on implicit linking and querying in semi-structured text. As a fresh BS graduate with some research experience (one published paper in a conference about distributed computing, a few programming competitions) and no formal background in text analysis, I really need an adviser interested in this field. Would you know anyone interested in this?

Funky hyperlinking in all files. See if I can steal ideas from this...

1. CompSAt meeting

Categories: None -- Permalink
IT Forum

- documentation of what happened - videos of all the sessions

- point person for IT forum - hosting third national e-learning conference

relatively small gathering, 150-200 people at Escaler, already reserved logistics (august)

- feedback. working relationship with MISA relatively good. few more problems with CompSAt. Surprised. Whoops. Check every week if there are new CompSAt things.

- one briefing first sem, one briefing second sem: what am I in CS for?

- representative from MISA and CompSAt; choose - speaker invitations might be too late
