Flu from The Linux Pimp sent me this link to a story about Canesta, a company that has created a new 3-D computer vision system. The system uses infrared light to perform depth perception, contour recognition, and object tracking.
We've had a number of recent submissions with links to good books. I've added them all (with descriptions) to the book links section, but I'll list them here too for convenience:
Speech and Language Processing: An Introduction to Natural Language Processing (note: we had an article on this book October 3, 2001)
Thanks for the links!
