Large meets Small @Google: 5 min vs 30 second pitching #SmartKnowledgeEngine #TrueColour3D

At Google Campus I said it within the time limit of 30 seconds. On this video I was less militant to commemorate the representatives of:

  • IBM with suit and without slides;
  • Fujitsu with slides;
  • Oracle with suit and a paper notebook;
  • Microsoft in jeans and with slides!

I had laminated pages to introduce our Smart Knowledge Engine:

Comparing the 5 minute with the 30 seconds time limits, we have to ask ourselves whether Time is really Money when the difference is between well paid staff and entrepreneurs, inventors and start-ups who struggle getting money from anywhere.

What is Innovative about Measuring in Digital Colour Brightness? Let us count the ways! @nanowerk #nanotechnology

Our Smart Knowledge Engine is a New Software Instrument
for Digital Image Investigations and ‘Smart Monitoring’

The re-visualisation of 2D images in ‘True Colour 3D’ is a basis for automation, as ‘domain experts’ who are familiar with their images, have the opportunity for adding ‘metric limits’. ‘Smart Monitoring‘ then means flagging ‘off limits’ events.

It ain’t easy to convey innovation or creativity. It’s easier to criticise than to create. For the viewer has preconceived ideas and notions and may be shocked by seeing something new, without being able to make sense. Our Smart Knowledge Space tries this.

Our Smart Knowledge Engine produces ‘newness’ with every re-visualisation. Neither I nor the developer can anticipate the look and feel. Who would have thought that Mona Lisa starts out with closed eyes and then opens them, as you move the object!

Our engine is ‘work in progress’ – not open for business yet. But here is a 3-page document to take it to the next level:

    As a taster of
‘True Colour 3D’, here is
Mona Lisa who can be moved around when driving our Smart Knowledge Engine[1] and you watch her eyes open before you.
    This re-visualisation is a movable object to investigate structure and new measurements – as in this cryo microscopy image on the Wellcome site[2]
    From The Institute of Making[3] at UCL: a Quantum Tunnelling Cord[4]. Its re-visualisation shows ‘Digital Colour Brightness’ in every original image pixel.
      This ball[5] made from polystyrene foam is coated with graphite. Our software shows details of the coating with ‘pixel accuracy’ and in different light and colour.

Progress in Smart Knowledge Space: Re-Visualising Images as a Basis for Automation and ‘Smart Monitoring’

The latest banner is a little taster of what our Smart Knowledge Engine can produce:

17 03 12 Banner grey 940 198

Blood cells and 3D Graphene at ‘digital nanoscale’, the Mona Lisa painting that gets her to open her eyes before yours, when you tilt the image as a movable object, Antarctica from a satellite image and the sun from a video of the Starshot project: our Smart Knowledge Engine deals with any technology, at any scale, in any ‘domain’ – for detailed investigation with a kind of ‘software lens’ or ‘image filter’.

Re-visualisations serve the purpose of setting boundaries for automating the processing of images: Continue reading

Flood maps in #TrueColour3D reveal new depths and heights @OpenDefra @DefraGovUK @MrMikeRose @jaCattell

These maps are available on

DEFRA the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Areas has been participating in the government’s Open Data initiative with Open Defra and Defra Digital.

Re-visualising them with our Smart Knowledge Engine as a 3D object reveals remarkable depths and heights in the ‘pixel accuracy’ that we deliver. After all, imaging technologies flatten both earth and waters.

The question is whether flood experts are happy with what they are used to seeing or whether they’d be interested in exploring more depths and investigating more heights?

A conference will be held by Flood & Coast in Telford on 28 -30 March.

Everything is #Number. And #Light. And #Colour. Reference Images in ‘True Colour 3D’ reveal Black and White, Depths and Heights. @NanoTechnology

This video shows four ‘reference images’ and how their ‘digital building blocks’ reveal the differences between

  • height and depth or mountains and valleys
  • inherent colour and ‘calculated’ or ‘attributed’ colour
  • lighting as an external source for creating visual effects.

ENJOY and let me know if you’d like to upload your own files to our ‘work in progress’!

‘Digital Colour Brightness’ – a new Visual Common Denominator to Measure Contents of Images @Nanowerk @Nanotechnology @Nanomagazine

‘Digital Colour Brightness’ in ‘True Colour 3D‘ is the output of our ‘Smart Knowledge Engine’, here demonstrated on a small reference image of a colour spectrum:

‘Digital Colour Brightness’ is the ‘fundamental measuring unit’ that we visualise with our ‘Smart Knowledge Engine’.

‘Digital Colour Brightness’ is the result of

  • the digitisation process of the imaging technology plus
  • the innovative numerical representation of matrices on screen and
  • the creative usage of the Graphical Processing Unit [GPU] in modern computers.
  1. Input DATA

Our ‘Smart Knowledge Engine’ accepts as input data any image produced by any imaging technology. This includes stills taken from videos. Continue reading

‘True Colour 3D’ for Visual and Metric analysis: Reference Images from @NPL and @StemCells re-visualised

These Reference Images were synthetically created by NPL, the National Physics Laboratory. Ages ago I re-visualised them with my offline prototype as one of my attempts to convince people that I understand Number in a way that offers a new approach to image analysis.

Now Neil Lowden has taken my concepts and brought my prototype up to the state of the art of 3D graphics. As a result, we now turn 2D images into movable objects – in ‘True Colour 3D’ – a new kind of 3D with visual and metric qualities.

The question is: what do you want to see more of at nanoscale – in True Colour 3D? Stem cells as below?

Do get in touch with Sabine @ domain name if you want to see more depth, detail and structure and soon MEASURE this and if you want to try for yourself!
