Virtual reality could be used to assess sex offenders

Pedophilia affects up to 5 percent of men, but has been difficult to study, as it is deemed unethical to use real images of children to measure arousal. Now, experts have developed a technique that harnesses that power of virtual reality to present subjects with 3D animations of nude minors in order to monitor their behavior. Patients are strapped with a device that measures blood flow to the penis, while they wear stereoscopic glasses that project digital images on a wall - allowing experts to determine if the individual has pedophilia tendencies. Experts used virtual reality to present subjects with 3D animations of nude children to monitor their behavior. Patients wear a plethysmography, or PPG, which is a cuff-shaped sensor that measures changes in the circumference of the penis based on blood flow.

HP's Sprout Pro may finally find its home in augmented and virtual reality


HP's Sprout Pro is here to remind us that Microsoft's Surface Studio is not the original creativity-oriented PC, let alone the most creative. Two years ago, the original Sprout debuted with integrated cameras that could turn 3D objects into 2D or 3D digital images, and a projector that worked with a unique touch-sensitive workspace to manipulate those objects. But two years ago, the world wasn't AR- and VR-crazed yet--and we were all still suffering under Windows 8. Now, the Sprout Pro brings an upgraded set of talents to a market that may finally be ready for it. Announced Tuesday at CES in Las Vegas, the upgraded Sprout Pro will have Intel's 7th-generation Kaby Lake desktop CPU, specifically the quad-core 2.9GHz Core i7-7700T with integrated Intel HD Graphics 630. The vertical display is a generously sized 23.8-inch Full HD (1920x1080) with 10-point touch.

Today's Venture Opportunities in Data Science


Summary: If you want to capitalize on all the amazing advancements in data science through your own venture-funded start up, where are the best opportunities? With all our recent talk about Convolutional Neural Nets (CNNs) and Recurrent Neural Nets (RNNs), innovations in text, speech, and image processing and now third generation Spiking Neural Nets you probably share my feeling that these new cutting edge data science technologies are huge opportunities waiting to be exploited. Perhaps you are thinking like an entrepreneur and wondering how you can capitalize on this in a venture-funded company. It's an interesting question and quite different from deciding to use these technologies to the benefit of your current employer or client. To be VC funded in anything, including a data science based opportunity there are many criteria, not the least of which is to be out in front of everyone else.
