Closed-Loop Process

A closed-loop process is a type of sensory system used to give expert systems and other AIs a form of continuous feed of an outside environment. It is quite limited in functionality, but predictable with a known margin of error.

Closed loop processes work with a pre-defined system of variables. The system deals with sensor data on each of these variables and a known margin for error. It analyses the values of these variables from the most recent sensor gathering session, determines the optimal action to take, and takes it.

Undertaking this action then triggers the next sensor sweep, and so on. The problem comes with closed loop systems, when you introduce a new variable into the system. The loop cannot handle it, and so the variable gets ignored, with potentially disastrous consequences when used in embodied AIs.

AI Cars, Driving Like Hooligans
Stanford's Junior AI, on handbrake skid parking, without a human influence on the system, in dynamic environments, with only a two foot variance in position at 25mph. Or, the first baby steps towards dynamic switching between open and closed loop systems.

Large Image Display: The Stepford Wives: Stuck in a Loop
The uncanny valley is a fickle thing. Everything can be fine one moment, and the next, even a slight error in programming, or even a data processing error, triggers it, and you go from believably human to terrifyingly wrong, in a space of only a few seconds.

Understanding the Science of Running
Running is not as simple a process as it seems at first glance. The physics of this type of movement is very different to the physics of walking, and as a result the leg and body movements are radically different. If we wish to recreate realistic running in either embodied robotic form, or via sequences for VR, then we need to understand this process intimately.

The Silent Majority
A potent look at closed captioning systems in VR and in gameworlds, including the staggering capabilities possible, the incredible customer response when it does occur, and asks why more developers aren't considering sensory substitution in designing their worlds?

Large Image Display: Building a Dynamic Reality in the Matrix: Part 1
This is one of two such large images showing the process of building a Matrix Universe VR world via the process of animation, which makes it clearer to see what is going on and draw parallels to our own methods of building worlds.

Large Image Display: Building a Dynamic Reality in the Matrix: Part 2
This is the second of two such large images showing the process of building a Matrix Universe VR world via the process of animation, which makes it clearer to see what is going on and draw parallels to our own methods of building worlds.



This book is an animation expert's attempt to ?dump his kit? as the author puts it, and share with others the fundamentals of animation that are not generally taught outside of industry practice, and always were taught behind closed doors.

Offering The Independence of the Open Road to those to whom Driving is Closed
When questioned on the possibilities of AI controlled cars, a significant proportion of general public individuals have queried the need for them, stating such viewpoints as "driving is a right, not a privilege". How then, can we justify the pursuit of AI controlled vehicles?



This book is dedicated to both virtual reality and augmented reality, as in how both apply to the manufacturing process. Everything from 3D visualisation and pre-manufacture prototyping to 3D printers and revolutionising the manufacture process.

Wireless Sensor Detects Status of Window
German researchers have made advances in the sensor systems that detect if a window is open or closed, by using of all things, a heavily modified washing machine tumble sensor. It detects movement ofthe window flawlessly, by the exact same means.
