Not sure how to start after a break this long. I usually mention how long of a break it was and then try to divert attention immediately. Also look how cute this dog is getting his haircut.
Now lemme tell you about my REU project. Our group did a lot of backtracking then progress repeatedly to finally figure out a reasonable way to run our experiment. Just a brief description of what we’re doing now; we recorded video from multiple drones in the sheriffs office with hostiles (people with fake guns) randomly in rooms. We’re then showing police recorded video and seeing if they can find the hostile.
Some of our experimental variables is sometimes there are threats, sometime there arn’t. Also we have trials with one drone scanning the building on its own, and some with three drones scanning the building. In the three drone case we have two interfaces that we randomly assigned to participants. One with a single monitor and one with three separate monitors. Here’s a couple examples of what the video looks like.
We got to run half the people yesterday until 3am and we’ll be running some more through it later today not until 3am. Were looking for accuracy, mental workload and trust in the robotic. Its fun stuff, evaluating the data might be less fun.
Amazon Prime day just passed. I bought things I didn’t know I needed until Amazon showed me that I needed them. If my mothers reading this, expect a few random packages coming to the house in a couple weeks.
I saw this neat bookbag with a laptop compartment and usb charger and got it because mine currently had a hole in it. I saw these drinks and bought it because its like 60 cents a can vs the $1.25 I would normally spend back at school. I got a 360 piece plastic cutlery set… cause… it was only $15 I guess, also that’s alot of cutlery. Then I got this oil diffuser thing so I can make stuff smell good… I guess. Almost sprung for the DNA Test but was convinced that I spent enough money by the multitude notifications on my banking app. Maybe my buying habits are a problem, but I can’t wait for that satisfaction when I open all those crisp cardboard boxes. I didn’t even mention the drone I bought.
So yup fun stuff. New month new me, so I’m gonna have new memes. A presequel meme for all of you Star Wars fans out there.
