Advanced Scientific Concepts
A Live Motion Portable 3D Video Camera
on: Google TechTalks
Advanced Scientific Concepts has developed a 3D camera unlike any other in existence. At video frame rates (30Hz) their solid-state flash LADAR system is able to simultaneously measure the distance to every point in the scene by recording the time-of-flight of a laser pulse. At full speed the camera collects 500,000 range points per second using a 1.57um eye-safe laser that has been successfully tested at distances greater than 5km.The entire system is the size of a shoebox and weighs only 12 pounds.

Privacy Preserving DataMining
on: Google TechTalks
The rapid growth of the Internet over the last decade has been startling. However, efforts to track its growth have often fallen afoul of bad data --- for instance, how much traffic does the Internet now carry? The problem is not that the data is technically hard to obtain, or that it does not exist, but rather that the data is not shared.

Richard F. Lyon

Pixels and Me
on:
Computers have revolutionized image media. Richard Lyon, one of the current pioneers of digital cameras, has found that several generations of pioneers in this field have been entangled with the terms picture element and pixel and that studying the history of the terminology is a fruitful approach to the history of the people and technology. Vladimir Zworykin's television research group at RCA popularized the term picture element in the 1930s, while the TV researchers at Bell Labs ignored that term, preferring image element. Fred Billingsley and others at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory developed computerized image processing and propagated the term pixel in the 1960s, while image processing researchers at Bell Labs ignored that term, preferring pel. In the early 1970s, pixel was spread through computer image processing publications from NASA, USC, IBM, Stanford, University of Missouri, and other places, eventually coming to be applied to elements of image sensor hardware, such as Lyon's optical mouse in 1980 and digital camera sensors more recently. Many of the people involved in this complex history have provided their personal recollections and documents to help piece the story together, and more such inputs will be solicited from the Computer History Museum audience.

Chris Anderson
Editor of WIRED
Technology's Long Tail
on: TedTalks
Chris Anderson, the editor of WIRED (not to be confused with the curator of TED, who has the same name), explores the four key stages of any viable technology: setting the right price, gaining market share, displacing an established technology and, finally, becoming ubiquitous. To demonstrate this trajectory, Anderson explores the evolution of the DVD player as it passes through each of these four tipping points, then offers specific examples of current trends in technology -- ranging from DNA sequencing to the hybrid -- to illustrate each stage of the game.
