React Native at a Glance

I’ve been looking at React Native as a tool for cross-platform mobile app development.


Reactive Native is supported by Facebook. It’s written in Objective-C from Apple.  You code RN in Javascript and JSX. The cool thing about RN is that your Apps are true Native, not web apps or hybrids. It compiles to Native code on both IOS and Android.

My conclusion is that React Native is a pretty good way to have one UI of views and elements that work the same on both IOS and Android. If your App is limited to basic functionality and you have RN components that do what you want, then RN is a good solution. And if your App uses APIs that build server-side content, then take a serious look at RN because it is strong on HTTP and Javascript CRUD.

Let’s dig a little deeper. I’m working at an App that does image AI recognition and style transfers. React Native does not have support for these new technologies on either the Android or IOS side.

But it is possible to build your own Swift and Java Components for React Native. Here's the gotcha. The Swift component will not run on Android, and the Java component will not run on IOS. So you are back to platform-dependent development where RN is lacking.

It is also possible to integrate RN modules into existing Swift and Java Native Apps. That's correct. You can add common RN Views to your existing IOS and Android Apps.

So when deciding on React Native, you need to ask yourself these questions:

1) Should my App start as a React Native App or a Native App?
2) Is React a good time saver for the common UI that I need?
3) How much platform-dependent module code do I need to write for IOS and equivalent Android?

Conclusion:

If you are writing an App without too much high tech platform dependencies, then React Native should work. Or if your App uses a lot of back-end APIs that do most of the work, then RN could be a great solution. But if you have a complex App that uses a ton of non-RN supported code, then you are probably better off building two versions of your App, IOS and Android Native.

Making Stuff

While working at Los Alamos on the secret Manhattan Project, Richard Feynman was earning just $380 a month. This was half what he needed to cover his living expenses and his wife’s medical needs. On weekends, Feynman drove to Albuquerque to see his ailing wife in a car borrowed from his friend Klaus Fuchs. 


When asked who at Los Alamos was most likely to be a spy, Fuchs speculated that Feynman, with his safe cracking and frequent trips to Albuquerque, was the culprit. Fuchs later confessed to being a spy for the Soviet Union in 1950. Some speculate that Feynman caught him. I agree. 

But many in the FBI kept records on Feynman. They believed he was a communist spy. 

Feynman could explain complex issues with the gift of metaphors. He eventually became a teacher.  Perhaps the best physics teacher ever. 

On politics Feynman once wrote to his wife “Nobody has ever figured out the cause of government stupidity—and until they do (and find the cure), all ideal plans will fall into quicksand.

As American politicians turn back toward fossil fuels and away from solar, I’m pretty sure I know what Richard Feynman would think. “It isn’t the stuff, but the power to make the stuff, that is important. But I realize now that these people were not in science; they didn’t understand it. They didn’t understand technology."

Here's a good read recommended by Best Camera

Inherit the Wind


So you think the Earth is real? The real question is which of us are players, and which of us is code? This is an excellent video if you dare watch. If you want to inherit the wind.

We finally have the theory of everything. There is no Fermi Paradox if we live in a world of alien creation, but what if we are living in an ancestral simulation created by our future selves?

With billions or unknown numbers of simulations, a sci-fi novel about a real base civilization would require imagination. How did they survive? What is their physics? I’m writing about a base as a sequel to Rainhut. Rainhut was about us living in a simulation. I believe a base must have created a form of quantum computer and then hit singularity before destroying themselves. I'm curious to know where the first came from and how they did it, how they built the first simulation.

Are there endless worlds for the makers to explore? Is there a Gateless Gate, a Mumonkan? 

Is it possible that Simulation Theory will someday be taught in school like evolution is today?

Entirely New Art Form

The picture on the right was hanging on my wall. I trained it as a style transfer model and then applied the model to the picture of my daughter on the left. The model was built with TuriCreate and I wrote the software in Swift with CoreML.



Best Camera has asked me to review several Apps that use machine learning and style transfers for this new art form. Some are very creative.

Here is a link to an article I wrote for Apple about TuriCreate.

AI Creative

So you think Artificial Intelligence is incapable of creativity and that it will destroy the Earth? Well, at least we won't be destroyed creatively. On the other hand, what if AI understood the futility of Nuclear Weapons and helped humans evolve? What if it helped us to fly beyond our small rock?



At IBM they are on a quest for AI Creativity.

Marco Polo

My daughter introduced me to the Marco Polo video walkie talkie App. It’s hillarious. This is a non-interactive video messaging solution.



Marco Polo makes it easy to send selfie video messages. Use it anytime. Make a quick video short. Your recipient contact receives a notification once you’ve started recording your message, They are able to watch you live or watch later.

The App has video filters to make you look cool and voice alteration for funny voice response. I find myself using the helium voice because it makes my kids laugh. To change the video filter, swipe left and right on the screen.

I find this App more convenient than FaceTime. You don’t need direct contact and if you don’t like your message, just redo it. And sometimes it’s easier and faster to send a quick video instead of typing on your mobile. 

Best Camera recommends trying this App

Apple's New AR Measure Tool

If you write a generic App, you run the risk of Apple or Google competing with you. But if you can take your App and include unique features, you might be Ok. Camera Apps are a good example. Apple and Google have their own default Camera Apps. But there are many Camera Apps that are both better and different. Apple did take the flashlight App idea, and they took the Bump phones together for file sharing idea. Those Apps are now toast.

So the trick is to create an App that is both universal and also unique enough that it would make no sense for Apple or Google to compete with you. These giants will not change their entire business model to compete with a unique App that is not a common tool. Famous last words.

Let's look at Augmented Reality. Currently, 7% of all AR Apps are length measuring Apps. This is according to Sensor Tower, an analytics outfit. We have all these measuring Apps because every tutorial on AR coding includes a measuring example. There's over 2 million downloads of 80 or so measuring Apps.

This brings us to Apple Measure, the new standard in AR measuring. There are competitors like AR MeasureKit. But those could soon become obsolete. So what is so great about Apple Measure? It helps you accurately measure objects or walls and it is free. But it's not available until IOS 12.

Tesla the Radio Astronomer

The greatest human inventor in the history of the Earth believed that humans would someday make contact with other worlds. Tesla did not believe that we are alone in the universe. His answer to the Fermi Paradox would have been that we simply have not found them yet. We need better instruments.

He believed that his radio cameras might have picked up signals from other worlds.



If true, Tesla wins the award for the Best Camera App ever. 

Imagine Earth without Tesla’s inventions. His alternating current. Even today, as we move away from burning fossil fuels, our entire future depends on Tesla. Was he in contact Aliens. Did we receive a gift from the stars?

MondlyAR


MondlyAR is a fascinating new language learning App that uses speech recognition with AR. It’s designed to supplement your learning experience with interaction from a virtual learning assistant. 




The VR assistant is a character named Mondly, a virtual teacher. She will show you objects, characters, dogs, cats and even planets in your real world. Mondly is an advanced sci-fi language learning experience.

Computerized AR components help you learn words and phrases. It’s remarkable. You get personal conversation and interaction with Mondly, and she has her own speech recognition technology.

Imagine your own AI tutor magically conjuring a bulldog on the street as you walk. Then it teaches you how to pronounce bouledogue in French. It’s fun and it works. A retention guru.








AR Reviews - HP Reveal (formerly Aurasma)


Augmented Reality has endless possibilities. This technology is no longer just for movies. So here at Best Camera, we will spend the next month reviewing the Best AR Apps for 2018.

HP Reveal lets you interact with the world in AR ways, but it also lets you share your Augmented Reality experience. Reveal lets you animate and use interactive digital content on images and videos in physical locations. 

It’s addictive. Switch between reality and the animated world. There’s a step by step wizard to help you create what the developers call Auras for sharing.



Record yourself a video or edit a photo. But then with HP Reveal add 3D characters. Have fun sharing your own creations. And now with HP behind the App, you can print photos, posters, birthday cards and more.


The Reveal mobile app is available on iOS and Android.

Not From Earth

Where Is Everbody?


Most people are familiar with Fermi's Paradox. As the story goes, Italian physicist Enrico Fermi, famous for creating the first nuclear reactor, asked a simple question at a casual lunch in 1950. "Where's Everybody?" That simple question has had extraterrestrial researchers scratching their heads in the decades since.

The numbers don't lie. We are alone in the universe, and yet that is impossible. So let's play a game. Pretend that we are not alone, but compared to most advanced civilizations, we are far behind, millions of years behind. And the reason we can't see all the action is that we are isolated. There is a veil surrounding the Earth. The galaxy wants us to catch up, become civilized and then we are welcome. 

If this is true, then there is a good chance that aliens walk among us. Perhaps there are hybrid humans as well. They could be our guides or simply observers. 

Now let's suppose Artificial Intelligence was able to unmask the veil, or at least help us spot those Aliens among us with advanced machine learning and image recognition. 

This brings us to the Not From Earth mobile App. This App works with Watson and the latest Apple technologies such as CoreML to let us spot those outsiders with our cell phone cameras. Just point and click, and artificial intelligence provides a probability of the subject being Human or Alien. 

Behind the scenes, this App is complicated. But the result is fascinating. It uses Watson, CoreML, Augmented Reality, Visual Recognition, Machine Learning and more. 

We have an advance beta copy of the App. It is scheduled for release in Aug 2018

Here are some of the features we have identified:

1. Use your Camera or Photo Gallary to hunt for aliens. 
2. The App does a pretty good job of identifying all objects, such as Labrador retrievers. So something pretty heavy is going on with this App.  
3. The App only accepts individual profiles. If two people are in the image, it tells you it needs one face only. 
4. It thinks Octopus are a form of alien visitors. Not sure why, but hundreds of scientists believe this could be true based on DNA testing. 
5. There is a video mode that uses augmented reality. You move the camera around and if it spots a face, it will categorize the person as human or alien. 
6. There is an exposure feature that attempts to unmask the Alien with trained style transfer effects. 
7. There is a share feature for posting the results to Facebook or Twitter or just Messaging or emailing the results. 

Does Best Camera believe there are Aliens on Earth? We just review Apps and technology. But the App is kind of addicting and fun. It's a game. Some people are calling it a Pick-Up App because it's so easy to get people's attention. "Are you from Earth?" That alone is a conversation starter and you follow up with the App. 

Follow Best Camera for immediate notification when Not From Earth is available.

Prisma Style Transfers



According to their website, the Prisma App has been installed over 100 million times. This App converts your photos into artwork using styles of famous artists like Van Gogh, Picasso, Levitan, as well as world famous ornaments and patterns. 

They use neural networks and artificial intelligence for creating timeless art from your own photos. I must admit that's pretty cool. But how do they do it? How do they create and release these image effects? And how do they make them work with any image?

My first hint was when they said they use artificial intelligence. Apple loves Prisma. They named Prisma the iPhone 2016 App of the year. And now Apple has released CoreML technology for working for both image recognition as well as image style transfers. CoreML uses this same kind of trained models for image recognition and image to art.  They call this machine learning. 

So where do these models come from? They have to be trained. You can just buy Prisma, but if you are into coding, you need to get your hands on transfer style models. There are technologies like Tensor Flow that can help. There's been a lot of progress in this area lately thanks to graphics processing units (GPUs). This has led to Deep Learning and the complex multi-level neural networks for creating models.

But there are two kinds of models. Those for image recognition and those for image style transfers. It is the style transfers that are used by Apps like Prisma. In order to create style transfer model, an artist or developer needs a style image and a content image. An example of a style image is the famous painting by Vincent van Gogh shown below. A content image is any image you want to start with. Once the model is created, users can transfer the style of any other image, not just the content image.



If you are working with IOS, you will need to convert the model to CoreML. There are various tools for doing this. The bottom line is that creative artists are able to use tools and existing art to create transfer models that are able to change the style of images into a form of art. The new art is similar to the style image used to create the model. What fun! 

I will be reviewing other Apps using AI models for image recognition and style transfer in future reviews. In the mean time, grab Prisma and have some fun.

If it works, it works

The funny thing about programming is that if it works, it works and the debate is over. It doesn't matter how smart they are when they tell you it won't work. If it works, it works. But then they will ask if it's scaleable.

No nonsense Free Audio Playback of any Kindle or IBook



"I recently purchased a Kindle book and noticed that Audible offered a free audio version. But eventually I discovered it was not free and they had me signed up for a subscription. You know, those sneaky little leaks that gradually drain your bank account when you are not watching. Buyer Beware!"

I hijacked this article from here: Free Audio Playback of any Kindle or iBook

Here's a quick guide to enabling free, no subscription playback with page turning.

Open Settings and General->Accessibility->Speech->Speak Screen  then Enable Speak Screen. Below on the same screen, you are able to select from voices.  Then use a two finger swipe down from the top within your Kindle or iBook App.

IBM Watson Loves Apple to the CoreML

ET vs AI
We would love to review this App on Best Camera. 

Here is a good article for anyone interested in Artificial Intelligence, Aliens from other worlds, and fast Image Recognition. Will they provide the code for this App? I read in the article that they are planning to make the entire project open source on GitHub. That would be a great learning tool. And if they submit to the App Store, a good way to get a bunch of installs.

Here is a link for Part 2 of the Article. It looks like there are three parts.

Part 2 - Coding with Watson SDK and CoreML

There's kind of TOC in each article. I would recommend starting with Part 1, or just jump right to he coding with part 2.

Part 1 — Setting up Image Recognition Models in Watson Studio

What's great about this article is the in depth description of how to use some cool technology created with by an IBM/Apple partnership. This is a good read.

Quoting from the article:
The engineers at IBM and Apple have formed an exciting AI joint venture. This article will explain how these two giants have made your life, as a developer, easier and more productive.
The combo of Watson and CoreML has everything from friendly online model training tools to fast onboard image classification. It’s got the stuff we want.

Don't fall through App Store Subscription hole

Please check this article to View, Change or Cancel your mobile device subscriptions. Yes, there are subscriptions from the Apple App Store. There should be a way to disable subscriptions all together on your device, but I could not find it.

So if you are evaluating an App, it's easy to get sucked into an unwanted subscription. You need to stay on top of those Apps that let you evaluate and then after a time charge you for a subscription. It's a bit tricky to find the cancel subscription setting so follow the link above to see a page like this. It has good instructions.


Fortunately, Apple is pretty good at refunding if you contact them early. Here's a chat response I finally got after cancelling the subscription and asking for a refund. So be sure to ask for a refund if you do not want the App subscription. Apparently takes a while for the refund but at least you can recover.

Why Did Space Oddity Go Viral?

What makes an App or a video go viral?

The answer is Arousal. And what are the most powerful emotions?

- Awe

- Anger

- Amusement
I'm working with some actors on a video commercial for a mobile App and it is hilarious. I'll post it here when done. 


Positive emotions out poll Negative emotions. People like positive emotion stories.

And here is the first ever music video from space. It's awe inspiring.





The Metaphor and Richard Feynman


How could such a brilliant nobel-prize winning scientist find ways to teach normal people about his subjects? He was a master at metaphors.  Here he explains fire using a metaphor. 




If you think about it, the world of computer programming is filled with metaphors.

Bus: Bits commute each day on a data bus. Data is a group of objects.
Window: Opening a new window lets more enlightening in! A program exists in an outside space.
Frame: Frames compartmentalize screen space. An overlap of space is an (undesirable) overlap of concept.
Desktop: My desktop is cluttered with icons. A visual surface is a physical surface.
Open/Close: Windows, programs and ports may be opened or closed. To open is to start, and to be open is to be susceptible to change.
File: A corrupt file wreaks havoc on the computer. Data is physical and discrete, occupying space.
Folder: A folder may have any number of files within. Files are objects that can be grouped.
Space: I've not much space left on my hard drive. Data takes up finite physical space.
Port: A port is a transfer point for shipping data. Data transfers on a liquid.
Tools: A program's tools never need sharpening! Data is physically altered by a program.
Cut: I cut out part of a speech by Mayor Nagin. Data on the screen is as if on paper.
Clipboard: The excerpt sat on my clipboard awaiting pasting. Data may be physically picked up and held.

Yikes! Here come the mind police.



Big Brother has come to local news. Sinclair wants a monopoly and will appease the state, the mind police, to get it. 

Is blogging a rare form of independent journalism? I suppose some bloggers that rely on sponsors might fear the fight against big brother, but not many. This is why net neutrality is under assault. The free flow of information is a dangerous thing for the State. 

The great thing about Camera Apps is that the cameras are pointing in the other direction.

Writing Tip for April


If the road to hell is paved with adverbs, then once you get there you will find yourself surrounded by Tautology

Tautology - the saying of the same thing twice in different words, generally considered to be a fault of style (e.g., they arrived one after the other in succession ).

Examples: 
  • I went to see him personally.
  • He is always making predictions about the future.
  • She was a dark-haired brunette.

    But then there are the funny examples, some intentional and some not.
  • "It's deja vu all over again." - Yogi Berra
  • “Our nation must come together to unite.” - George W. Bush

Apple and IBM are colluding on a Childhood's End vision!


Apple is banking on the future of Core ML (machine learning) and ARKit (augmented reality) working together. It's a grand vision. But there is another player sneaking into the mix and that is IBM Watson.

Apple's machine learning framework for IOS has extensive features for deep learning with over 30 layer types: face tracking, speech, bar code detection and so on.

Then with ARKit and the new A9/10/11 processors, it's possible to create vast VR experiences of any physical world on mobile devices.  Combining ML and AR has crazy potential.

But then consider the problem you have with a mobile device implementing Artificial Intelligence. There is no access to big data, the true driving force of real artificial intelligence. The place where the singularity will emerge.

So now consider the subtle partnership between IBM Watson and Apple Core ML and AR. What these two giants are up to is fascinating. Take the simple task of image recognition. With Core ML, you have a limited model that has learned image recognition. But to update that model, it gets tricky. So along comes IBM Watson and you are able to upload your photos to the cloud with big data and constantly learning models.

But what these two giants decided to do was use the A11 processor on the mobile devices and when connected to the internet, update their Core ML models from Watson in the cloud. That's right. No need to upload the photos for image recognition, ever! It's like some creature from another world tapping into our power source getting smarter and smarter!

Now consider all three in combination; Machine Learning, Augmented Reality and Big Data AI kindly making the mobile device smarter when convenient with it's yummy power. Now that is thinking outside of the box. There are some smart people at Apple and IBM colluding on a Childhood's End vision. And this same idea can apply to drones or humanoid robots. Welcome to the future.

Watson-coreML Coupling in New App



There is new App being developed right now using the Watson-coreML Combo. This team understands the value here and their App, though playful, could be addictive and viral. It’s fast smart and will keep getting smarter without the need to update the App in the App Store. It’s taking advantage of the speed of local native and the power of enterprise server side.

But what is important is that new Apps, using this friendly combo of Watson server side and Apple coreML native device side, will bring great value to users in a wide range of industries.

Here are the steps taken by developers in merging these two AI technologies from two industry giants. First a developer signs up on the IBM Cloud. Then they use the new Watson Studio tool to train and deploy a coreML model to the IOS App. Then they run the App on the IOS device to classify images using CoreML. Finally, they get feedback from the users and send the feedback to Watson in the cloud for more training.

I will keep you posted on the progress of this App. It's out of this world. I so want to tell you what the App does. Just need permission first.

The Current Problem with Facebook

Never install Facebook Apps or login to anything with your Facebook account. Also disable Facebook facial recognition from your settings. Third party developers are not properly controlled by Facebook because Facebook wants their retargeted Ad money. Apple, on the other hand, has strict developer guidelines so far and could serve as an example for Facebook. 
Only 270,000 people installed the Cambridge Analytica App that provided Trump and Heritage with illegal data from 50 million users (friends of the 270). Russia used a similar scheme; a hackers playbook, and Facebook didn’t care. Cambridge created a Facebook App called "thisisyourdigitallife" that had you sign in with your Facebook account and take a survey.


Can we handle the truth?

Steve Jobs was a believer in computers for good. A tool to help us be more cognitive and creative. A dreamer. This was what I liked about him. I was never  interested in writing software for the military or for targeted advertising. Its obvious that computers can be used for great good or great evil. But when computers exceed human intelligence, will logic finally prevail over human irrational tendencies?
