The position for curriculum designer required a Masters or PhD with deep knowledge in Machine Vision and Ai to ride around an autonomous vehicle teaching men and women to be “Elevator Attendants.”
Which job is worse: the trainer that rides around backwards all day, or the guy who gets to be the “attendant” in a self driving golf cart? Is this the best we can do in Detroit today: create jobs that were boring a hundred years ago?
The Teddy Bears Picnic is a demonstration project that we use in our Microsoft PowerPoint certification training. This is the first time that I completed the project with all of the animations and sound: PowerPoint to the Max! Enjoy! Elizabeth
“Teddy Bears’ Picnic” is a song by American composer John Walter Bratton, written in 1907, and lyrics added by Irish songwriter Jimmy Kennedy in 1932. It remains popular as a children’s song, having been recorded by numerous artists over the decades.
Video Summary: “Now it’s easier than ever to create rapid, interactive designs with Autodesk’s 3D tools and Unity’s real-time platform.”
UNITY and Autodesk: UNITY is the tool for creating immersive Virtual and Augmented Realities. The car has already been designed to the nuts and bolts digitally. This video shows one option for working with those automotive assets.
“You don’t even have to paint the walls! Just get a bigger monitor.”
For Developers, Educators and Writers: The articles on screen time need to separate constructive vs destructive use of screens. Are these screens building someone up ? OK, I’m good with that. Everybody wins.
For me, the Computer Mama, teaching someone a skill is the best use of my time, talent and energy. That takes about four screens, 60-70 hours a week, to manage an online business, not counting thestupid phone.
WRLD is a 3D Mapping program that allows developers
to design and integrate feature-rich, dynamic maps for indoor and
outdoor use. The applications of such mapping include real-time
monitoring, navigation, and positioning.
Mapping, such as with WRLD has uses in the Internet of Things, Smart Cities, VR/ AR, and Connected Lifestyles. It can also be used for service, commerce, and advertising.
I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Don Burnett, Microsoft MVP. Don Burnet enjoyed designing lessons for our Connected Car Advanced Transportation courses. He shared his knowledge generously with both hands.
The list of programs and architecture that Don mastered in his 20+ years experience is dazzling. I added up all of the lessons I would have to take to learn and calculated that I would need two or three lifetimes to catch up with Don Burnett!
One of the new toys in Windows 10 is the Mixed Reality software. Here is the Computer Mama, swimming with the fishes. This image reminds me of the original screen saver on the MAC Plus. Except in this animation the bigger fish don’t eat the little ones.
