The temptation was to write this blog post mostly in pictures since it’s about visual representations of things, based sometimes on a combination of objects that were understood using object recognition, and virtual semantic images superimposed on those learned of from a knowledge base.
 In another aspect, a method of recognizing objects is disclosed. The method comprises capturing an image of a field of view of a user, extracting a set of map points based on the captured image, recognizing an object based on the extracted set of map points, retrieving semantic data associated with the recognized objects and attaching the semantic data to data associated with the recognized object and inserting the recognized object data attached with the semantic data to a virtual world model such that virtual content is placed in relation to the recognized object.
I sometimes like to start looking through the documents I see listed as citations or footnotes in a paper I find interesting, As I started looking at the documents in that paper, I found many of them to be very interesting.
The patent doesn’t tell us about how such natural language featured Snippets are chosen by the search engine, but the following document, which shares the same authors as the inventors of the patent, and which was filed by them as a provisional patent, does give us some ideas on how those are found on the web.
We know that Google is looking for responses from pages that they consider to be “authoritative” pages.
I am on the first week of my move from Northern Virginia to Carlsbad California, and I got to witness a historical local event last night. A sign was installed along a highway that goes along the Pacific Coast and through towns as it winds through the way. It’s something of a replica of a sign naming the Village of Carlsbad that was around approximately 100 years ago.
Last night, the town celebrated the lighting of the new sign, for the first time.
Seeing all the people who showed up for the lighting of the sign was my first chance to see the local community in action, and they were a lot of fun, with the whimsy of this new sign taking center stage.
