Into the 3rd day of our European visit we toured Budapest by bus. We had a local guide who spoke reasonable English. Our tour director spoke English, German and Czech. Touring a city by bus (Inside the bus) has advantages as you cover many places. The downside is you miss 'your feet on the ground' and the opportunity to look at things from a couple of directions. If you are some what hard of hearing and the sound system is less than adequate, you miss a awful lot of information the guide is giving. Here is a short list of things you see in a day tour House of Parliament The Chain Bridge St. Stephan's Basilica National Opera House The Central Market Fisherman's Bastion The river Danube Holy Trinity Square Here is a slide show video of our tour: ...

Deep learning AI with Caffe2GO

You create a video and you want it the way Picasso or Monet would have visualized it. Can it be done? The answers appears to be answered by Facebook's Caffe2Go. It was easy with stills as many programs do it, but with a video it is another thing. Caffe2Go is supposed to be third iteration of AI, the deep learning. This was possible earlier with big machines and lots of computing power, since the program has to learn the myrid images that these great artists envisioned it could not have been done otherwise.

Danube river cruise and the Melk Abbey

We went from Vienna to Dürnstein, after about an hour or more of bus ride. We did some sightseeing of this town with the fabled blue church over the hill and 16th century residences. It was typically a town for tourists with lots of shops, restaurants, wine shops etc. on both sides of narrow, cobbled streets. We then boarded the boat at Dürnstein pier at the foot of the hill around 10:00 AM. The ride was for about 3 hours or more and the boat had an on-board restaurant. At a distance, you can see the castle now in ruins that had held Richard the Lionheart captive. Later we visite... (more)
