Jump Start into Machine Learning

YouTube recording of a presentation I gave earlier this year (check previous post). In the session, I discussed my passion in the field of computers and showcased various machine learning techniques and applications using Google AIY using Raspberry Pi, Google Collab, and even a neural network on a Commodore 64.

Not just the world is round but the technology world is round as well

If the world is round then so as the technology world is round as well. In the late seventies and eighties, the BASIC language and Assembly Language were hot things at the time. After that, people took on new technologies with the Internet and jumped on languages such as HTML, C, C++, Perl, Python, and JavaScript. Systems moved […]

August 9, 1982

August 9, 1982 Commodore released the Commodore 64. It took me close to 5 years of wanting it, asking for it, dreaming of it and then eventually saving for it (you can ready me story at https://lnkd.in/de-XWks). It fueled my passion along every other 8-bit machine. At the end of the day, the c64 and […]

digging the past

Why it is important to dig the past of computers by reading, for example, early 1970s issues of Byte magazine? Going back to the roots of personal computers and living the technology footprint, the innovation and limitations at that time would give you, not only appreciation of where we are today and how far we […]

felt like yesterday

Earlier this year but it feels like yesterday when I presented on Do-It-Yourself AI. Great moments when you engage the audience with Google AIY tools, showing Commodore 64 machine learning code in Basic, and talking about burning 5 Raspberry PI Zeros while soldering 🙂 Link to the presentation on https://lnkd.in/exWiMmM hashtag#machinelearning hashtag#raspberrypi

good old note cards

No AI technology outperforms the simplicity of good ol’ faithful notecards for research writing. Pen & paper 4 ever rules!!

My hidden place

The place brings back memories of the eighties with its retro atmosphere including the music. Games include Galaga (ofcourse), Gauntlet, Dragon’s Lair, Bezerk, Defender, Mortal Kombat, and lots […]

Retro: Atari & Commodore days 1981-1990

This is how my life with computers first started. It all began in 1981 when I first saw my cousin in Beirut, Lebanon playing PacMan on the Atari 2600. The colors, the sounds, and the animation fascinated me. I was six years then and that’s when my passion first started to take shape. We travel to […]
