Mark Miller and Seth Juarez Go Mad with Kinect!
Carl and Richard talk to Mark Miller and Seth Juarez about their crazy experiments with Kinect. The boys discuss how they are building an interface with Kinect to do programming with Visual Studio 2010. A large part of this conversation ends up diving deep into the relative merits of machine learning in systems. Are we crossing the streams? You bet!
