Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I am wondering at what point should we expect human androids to become mainstreamed within various industries of our society.  This question stems from the following link https://www.facebook.com/cnbcinternational/videos/749203651847444/  which is very thought provoking.  I am figuring we can not expect to see such an integration within our lifetime.

With Lilypad e-textiles do you have to pair an Arduino board (nano or uno) with it or are these programmable themselves with Arduino software.  I have multiple LilyPad Arduino Simple Snaps and would like to program them to allow a student to push a button and have led lights go off in succession.
We are attempting to make interactive maps like what you would see in a museum.  Button goes off and the lights light up an army path or the outline of a state.

BACKGROUND
I want to install a virtual machine that will run Ubuntu Linux efficiently on top of Windows 7.
I will then install ROS on top of Linux in order to use Gazebo to simulate robots.
I may need to run two virtual machines in order to simulate two robots, but I'm not sure if that is required.
I may be able to simulate the two robots, including inter-robot communications, using only one VM.

QUESTION
Please recommend what Virtual Machine would be best for my purposes.
Hopefully, there is a free version.
I already own a VMware workstation paid license, but it is several years old, 2013, version 10. Maybe I should use that. Please let me know.

Have too many poorly organized bookmarks.

Don't want to upload them to any platforms to organize.

Was wondering if there's any software that's sort of AI-ish which could comb through them and attempt to apply tags to them.  Detecting some pattern or patterns among them.

Hello experts,

I have the following flat file attached (Input Sheet).
I am trying to build a vba procedure that covers the following requirements:
1-Check if Output sheet if so delete and create a new blank
2-Transfer the various unique values in column H, J and AI
3-Consolidate the sum values for the various month from AJ to BV split by column AI

I attached dummy file with expected Output sheet.

I think that we can proceed steps by steps, such as copy unique values related to H & J.
For this we can use the following procedure:

Sub CopyRangeUniqueValues(FromWSheet As String, FromRange As String, ToWSheet As String, ToRange As String)
'Sub treats first cell in FromRange as a header label, and will copy it to ToRange even if it is duplicated in the list
Dim celHome As Range, rgDest As Range, rgSource As Range
Dim n As Long
Set celHome = ActiveCell
Set rgDest = Worksheets(ToWSheet).Range(ToRange)
Range(rgDest, rgDest.End(xlDown)).ClearContents

With Worksheets(FromWSheet)
    n = .UsedRange.Row + .UsedRange.Rows.Count - 1
    Set rgSource = .Range(FromRange & n)
End With

rgDest.Worksheet.Activate
rgSource.AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, CopyToRange:=rgDest, Unique:=True
Application.GoTo celHome

Open in new window


Concerning the consolidated sum we can also go ahead with a formula reported in macro:

Sub LoopFormula2(strwsName, strColflag, strCol As String, strColName As String, formula As String)

'Call LoopFormula2("ImportCC", "1", "D", "Test", "=clean(sheet1!G2*sheet1!I2)") 'example of formula
    Dim ws As Worksheet
    Set ws = Worksheets(strwsName)
    ws.Activate
     '==>Clear Destination Column
    Range(strCol & ":" & strCol).Clear
    UsedRows = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.count + ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows(1).Row - 1
    If strColflag = 1 Then
        Range(strCol & 1).Value = strColName
    End If
    '==>Clear Destination Column
    RightFormula = Replace(formula, "1048576", UsedRows)
    '==>ApplyFormula
    Range(Cells(2, strCol), Cells(UsedRows, strCol)).formula = RightFormula
    Range(Cells(2, strCol), Cells(UsedRows, strCol)).Value = Range(Cells(2, strCol), Cells(UsedRows, strCol)).Value
End Sub

Open in new window


Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi
My Python chess project new approach is tripping up.
I think it might be to do with Thread entanglement.
My engine instantiates a white and a black player, which are each abc's for their AI, random movers for now.

Then I start a game_loop() to handle the game play.

Does Thread "entanglement" ever happen? I cant see any reason for my Threads to unravel
I suspect this, because I have a thread counting the seconds going by on the console
( will help with clock)
But, when I instantiate my board window, the board window appears, but the counting thread disappears. (take away the # comment in ChessEngine.py to reinstate the board creation
Have they become entangled?

My
ChessEngine.py has the call to init the board commented out, so you can see the seconds being counted out.
as soon as the # is taken away and the board instantiates, the first Thread ceases to count.
It only counts the seconds when there is no board

Are Python Threads delicate and tough to combine?
Something in the board class is locking it all up
Code attached
What could it be?

Thanks

I want to buy a speaker to connect it to the Arduino and play some music. I've done some research and noticed that all speakers operate at least 2 W.

The Arduino offers a 5V voltage differential and 0.25 milliAmperes so machines work between 1,5*10^-4 W.

Which speakers do I have to use?

I have connected 2 cables (->one from port 9 to vid cable with a 1000 Ω resistor between and second for port 7 to vid cable with a 400 Ω resistor between) and the ground pin with my rca connector's ground and I have connected my vid cable to my rca connector.

Here's the code:
#include <TVout.h>


TVout TV;


void setup() {
  // put your setup code here, to run once:
TV.start_render();


}

void loop() {
  // put your main code here, to run repeatedly:
TV.clear_screen();

TV.print_str(30,30,"Hello world");





}

Open in new window





my screen doesn't show the message "Hello World". Am I missing something?

Well my dad has recently bought our Arduino. Yesterday I was exploring the environment I found how to save , open and open the serial monitor.

My problem is that every time I try to upload a project, an exception occurs "programmer didn't respond the command"
I've tried this for about 100-150 times but it doesn't get any better. What should I do?

windows 10 laptop
I have a quick wifi connection. I do not want to plug into the router.

Sometimes google hangouts / google voice has low call quality.
instead of hearing a word. I can not understand one word in every sentence because there is a robot noise

I looked up downloading hangouts for windows 10 but can not find

Is there any way to increase call quality or is that server side (google)?

Hi

I finished our colossal collaboration of a network game with a central server, a while ago. I will convert it to python now that I'm shifting to it as well. Is that unadvisable - python might not be optimal for a game server?

I know that MIT had an RTS AI coding contest, before.
There's also ORTS, open rts
There seem to be many similar links on Google.
The MIT contest was geared to a confusing, un-watchable mess of a game, in my opinion.

Do these types of contests have any traction? now? Any of them non-college?
I have many ideas, some non 3D war.
Thanks

I'm interested in using Visual Studio in the field of BIG data and artificial intelligence.

At the moment the latest version of Visual Studio is 2017.
When is the next version due out?
What spec machine is needed for it to run smoothly in terms of processor, RAM and diskspace (and anything else that is relevant).
I found that with the Express edition, I could not use the Streamwriter.  Is this expected?

The Robotic Process Automation are fast approaching RPA , any idea how our MS access developed application will be affected ? The RPA will replace many of the jobs that are currently done by human through automation , does it mean that our applications will be redundant if they cannot link with robots?

How should you communicate with robots?

Also with access control don't worry about it right guys?

I downloaded an .AI image from Adobe Stock. But I don't own Adobe Illustrator, so I can't convert it to JPG or PNG to use in PowerPoint. It won't load in Inkscape, either. Is there a free, or at least inexpensive way to convert it?

I have used Python, Natural Language Processing and web scraping technology to do some deep mining of Google's vast warehouses of articles on the web.

Is what I described considered artificial intelligence?

Or, in order to satisfy the requirement of AI must that model also automatically adjust it's algorithms based on the results of the searches? In my case, the adjustments were manual.

Curious.

Thanks.

We currently have an application called "Support" for mobile devices (runs on iOS/Android). The end user types their issue into the a form and it goes off to the helpdesk, who log a ticket.

To me, this seems somewhat pre-historic.

I was thinking of utilising bots, so that the user could interface with some level of AI which would then at least be able to present solutions

Is this possible? Are chatbots available to understand that the user has written and then point them to a Knowledge Base?

Any way to make this even better?

Hi,
I got a Cozmo robot recently and I'm trying to write some code for it, it has a python API.

I am new to python and I'm first trying to understand the sample code they gave.
Here is one example:


-----------------
import cozmo
from cozmo.util import distance_mm, speed_mmps

def cozmo_program(robot: cozmo.robot.Robot):
  robot.drive_straight(distance_mm(150), speed_mmps(50)).wait_for_completed()

cozmo.run_program(cozmo_program)
------------------------
The line I am curious about is "cozmo_program(robot: cozmo.robot.Robot):"
So, it's a function call. But what is with the Colon ':' in the param?  " robot: cozmo.robot.Robot".  Does it mean that 'robot' is an instance of cozmo.robot.Robot?

In fact I'm also unclear what cozmo.robot.Robot means. Can someone break down that line and explain please?

Thanks!

Let's say you comes up with a great new web app but you are unable to host it yourself. So you do what everyone else is doing these days, you put it on the cloud. Is there a way to guarantee that no one at your hosting company peeks at your files?

My Concerns
It seems to me all forms of third party hosting, I.e. traditional web hosting, cloud hosting may not be a good idea for business who want to keep their information secure. If we place all our data on servers controlled by other companies and those companies create AI programmes dedicated to finding useful bits of information; we may soon find ourselves living in a world where before we are able to execute our ideas, some AI programme has already stolen our ideas and those of 10 other persons from the cloud and converted it into the 2045 equivalent of what cell phones are today. We continue to toil at our 9 to 9 jobs (not a typo)

Has anyone seen any solutions to address those concerns?

I have some other questions about AI but perhaps another time.

Hello experts,

I have a Raspberry Pi 3B running with a Pi No IR Camera(with two infrared light sources as comes in the No IR Camera package), and a handful of sensors working on the GPIO Pins. The setup is to be mounted on a base provided with four wheels and two DC motors.. As of now, the Pi and its attachments run from the power socket. However, once it is mounted on the robot base, I will need some kind of portable power source.. Please suggest something that can run the setup for 12 hours at a stretch at least.

I know the question might be vague, please ask for the details that will be needed, and I will provide them..

Thanks in advance..
