“when I’m on staff there’s this feeling of being trapped but when I’m freelance it’s this obligation to always hustle.”

In which I attempt to explain quantum computing in 3 minutes—using chalkboard doodles.

Just launched! Another collaboration with Microsoft—this time to attempt to explain quantum computing. Come for the video, stay for the parallax.

Realized (at midnight) that I love seeing other peoples workspaces, but I never share mine. So I snapped a photo. And here we are.

Microsoft has been doing all kinds of research into creating “deep learning” systems—computer networks that mimic the way the neurons in our brain work—specifically for image recognition tasks. I was asked to create an animation to bring this research to life for a wider audience, in preparation for an academic summit today in Redmond.

My takeaway?

Computers are learning how to see the world around us—so we can spend more time looking at our computers.

The animation also got hung on the end of a much more in-depth analysis of the deep learning industry from Wired magazine.

A little animation I did to explain Microsoft’s new artificial intelligence system just popped up on Engadget today.
