I haven’t been sleeping much the last few months. Now, the last week making this much interactive progress I’m sleeping less. Imagine spending the last 17 years working on pieces of a project that were slowly coming along in multiple programming languages and had kind of worked, but now all coming together much better than before. I have 82 tabs open on my iPhone from laying in bed reading. The topics are items I need to fix in the current implementation to research items like “Tensorflow.js vs Tensorflow” or OpenFace, my bookmarks from years ago on gesture libraries, active gaze, multiple webcam detections in opencv4nodejs where I know how to do it in Python, and much, much… well 76 more tabs.
When I read articles that someone has written about some OpenCV work they’ve done or some other framework they’ve tried and they’re excited about the work I usually read the context of “I wanted to see if I could do this and, well, yeah I could and here’s how.” I rarely find articles or works that are passionate about something someone is working on. Me, I’ve been dreaming of this work for 32 years. I’ve spent the last 17 working on various libraries around it in games, game GUIs, OpenCV, Tesseract, translations, internationalization, gesture work, and more. And I’ve spent the last 2 years working on modules, designs, outlines, architectures, and more for this project… alone.
So, I’ve been awake since 2am and it’s 4 now researching the next steps so I can move my thoughts along on this project for what I’d like to do next.
Right now, I’m going to take the articles I’ve been reading and translate those into notes so I can add more functionality and modules to this project.
