Mario AI Competition 2009
This competition is about learning, or otherwise developing, the best controller (agent) for a version of Super Mario Bros.

The controller's job is to win as many levels (of increasing difficulty) as possible. Each time step (24 per second in simualated time) the controller has to decide what action to take (left, right, jump etc) in response to the environment around Mario.

We are basing the competition on a heavily modified version of the Infinite Mario Bros game by Markus Persson. That game is an all-Java tribute to the Nintendo's seminal Super Mario Bros game, with the added benefit of endless random level generation. We believe that playing this game well is a challenge worthy of the best players, the best programmers and the best learning algorithms alike.

MonaTweeta II on Flickr - Photo Sharing!
Ok, this is mega awesome.
"Preliminary result of a little competition with the goal to write an image encoder/decoder that allows to send an image in a tweet. The image on the left is what I currently manage to send in 140 characters via twitter.

This is the tweet for the image:

I am using chinese characters here since in UTF-8 encoding they allow me to send 210 bytes of data in 140 chars. In theory I could use the whole character code range from 0x0000-0xffff, but there are several control chars among them which probably could not be sent properly. With some tweaking and testing it would be possible to use at least 1 or 2 more bits which would allow to sneak 17 or 35 more bytes into a tweet, but the whole encoding would be way more nasty and the tweets would contain chars that have no font representation."

MSAFluid for processing |
This is a library for solving real-time fluid dynamics simulations based on Navier-Stokes equations and Jos Stam's paper on Real-Time Fluid Dynamics for Games. While I wrote the library primarily for processing it has no dependency on processing libraries and the source can be used with any Java application.

C++ version for openFrameworks can be found here.

hatful of hollow - Visualising Sorting Algorithms
I dislike animated sorting algorithm visualisations - there's too much of an air of hocus-pocus about them. Something impressive and complicated happens on screen, but more often than not the audience is left mystified. I think their creators must also know that they have precious little explanatory value, because the better ones are sexed up with play-by-play doodles, added, one feels, as an apologetic afterthought by some particularly dorky sportscaster. Nevertheless I've been unable to find a single attempt to visualise a sorting algorithm statically (if you know of any, please drop me a line).

Functional Javascript
Functional is a library for functional programming in JavaScript. It defines the standard higher-order functions such as map, reduce (aka foldl), and select (aka filter). It also defines functions such as curry, rcurry, and partial for partial function application; and compose, guard, and until for function-level programming. And all these functions accept strings, such as 'x -> x+1', 'x+1', or '+1' as synonyms for the more verbose function(x) {return x+1}.

Processing library for feature detection and tracking « codeanticode
The KLT (Kanade-Lucas-Tomasi) is an algorithm for computer vision that tracks points in a sequence of images (a video for example). Points are selected by being at the corner pixels of the image (pixels where edges intersect). Depending on how an image in the sequence distorts into the next, the algorithm computes an optical flow that allows to track the detected points in time, until the disappear from the image and are replaced by new ones

From ActionScript to iPhone | BIT-101 Blog
A couple of weeks ago I was looking at the vast list of unfinished projects and random ideas i’ve accumulated over the last year or so and decided I needed to choose one and finish it. That’s when I decided to concentrate on my next game, Gravity Pods 2. As soon as I started on that, I had the epiphany that it would make a great game for the iPhone.

So, while I’ve been cranking on the Flash version of the game, I started to look into learning Objective C 2.0 and iPhone development. The transition is not an easy one. ActionScript, JavaScript, Java, C, C#, C++, PHP, etc. are all pretty similar in terms of basic syntax. Even Python is not that foreign.

Pie In The Sky « Not The User’s Fault
The reason why pie menus are good has to do with Fitts’ Law, one of the most reliable theories in all of HCI, which has been empirically verified time and time again. Sadly, a lot of people who do UI design, even professionals, don’t know about this simple and useful formula. (Formula shown as an image...woot)

Software Studies: Software Takes Command (a new book by Lev Manovich)
In his introduction to 2006 Rotterdam workshop
Fuller writes that “software can be seen as an object
of study and an area of practice for art and design
theory and the humanities, for cultural studies and
science and technology studies and for an emerging
reflexive strand of computer science.” Given that a
new academic discipline can be defined either
through a unique object of study, a new research
method, or a combination of the two, how shall we
think of software studies?
