The British Computer Society [BCS] has been my club in town, ever since a professor of the London Metropolitan Uni introduced me to it. This week we held our first event that I contributed to:
Very good not only to meet Prof. David Ormerod QC but also the President of the BCS Ray Long. We now have a single page of Points for further discussion and we’re planning the follow-up meeting soon!
The previous consultation was on Misconduct in Public Office with Police Corruption as an offence.
Meeting LSE Prof Emeritus and ‘cultural maverick’ Aladin Aladin at a NESTA event on innovation inspired me to describe a conceptual art installation and I looked for famous paintings as input to our Smart Knowledge Engine.
- Here’s a video I put together about Mona Lisa, as I’m gathering screenshots for our Gallery on a Smart Knowledge Space as a new website.
And then there was my hyper-frustration with innovateUK where you can not submit a video for a grant application, let along a link to Software As A Service… pdf is the only format they are willing to look at.
What chance do I have to make that ‘quantum leap’ from paper-based thinking to ‘digitally yours’?
I have had to discover that:
- Screenshots tell 1,000 words;
- Videos tell 1,000,000 tales;
- But our Smart Knowledge Engine makes you go WOW. AMAZING.
- first, when you SEE a 2D image in ‘True Colour 3D’ – the larger the screen the more dramatic!
- then, when you tilt and move, rotate and zoom, change lighting and colour, attenuate and invert, i.e. discover depth, detail, structure and tell new stories about the light and colour that can now be revealed in every image.
It’s just not ready for being driven by ‘anybody’ yet.
I don’t want to risk messing up first impressions, unless you INSIST!… Email sabine at domain 3d-metrics.com if you want the link to our engine as ‘work in progress’.
