Machine learning for the maker community

At Arduino Day, I talked about a project I and my collaborators have been working on to bring machine learning to the maker community. Machine learning is a technique for teaching software to recognize patterns using data, e.g. for recognizing spam emails or recommending related products. Our ESP (Example-based Sensor Predictions) software recognizes patterns in real-time sensor data, like gestures made with an accelerometer or sounds recorded by a microphone. The machine learning algorithms that power this pattern recognition are specified in Arduino-like code, while the recording and tuning of example sensor data is done in an interactive graphical interface. We’re working on building up a library of code examples for different applications so that Arduino users can easily apply machine learning to a broad range of problems.

The project is a part of my research at the University of California, Berkeley and is being done in collaboration with Ben Zhang, Audrey Leung, and my advisor Björn Hartmann. We’re building on the Gesture Recognition Toolkit (GRT) and openFrameworks. The software is still rough (and Mac only for now) but we’d welcome your feedback. Installations instructions are on our GitHub project page. Please report issues on GitHub. (more…)

Remix Domestic Appliances

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

[Elvia Vasconcelos] developed a very simple yet interesting installation based on PureData and Arduino. The main goal is change / remix (and therefore innovate) the approach toward domestic appliances:

To re-purpose an object is to manipulate its construction. I believe there is nothing natural about the way objects behave and therefore in their potential to be reinvented. It is in the artistic domain to liberate these objects from the settings in which they have become predictable and accepted. For this installation I am looking at objects from the Home. I present a fan, an extractor, a light bulb and a vacuum cleaner that are pretending to be toasters. They are controlled by the viewer via a telephone. My work is guided by a desire to hold onto things but not exactly to hold them in place.

[Spencer] built a controller sending serial data to Pure Data using Firmata Library. The data is processed and sent to Ableton Live via Midi:

It’s still unfinished here. It’s basically opening the communication between the arduino, scaling everything from 0-127 to be compatible with MIDI, then being routed through various CC’s to mac’s IAC driver, which passes the MIDI CC’s into Ableton Live.

So there you have it. A few things are missing, the LED’s still need to be added and tweaked, a problem with there not being enough power to illuminate the very demanding buttons, although I plan to resolve this with an external DC adapter though.
