L. A. Noire - The Technology Behind Performance

Here's a short technology preview of an upcoming video game, L.A. Noir, which is currently in production by Rockstar  Games.

I find this video exciting because it takes the concept of "interactive fiction" to a whole new level. Furthermore, it seems to be somewhat redefining (or at least refining) the computer's ability to communicate to us; in this case, subtle non-verbal cues typically associated with human face-to-face interaction.

The sophisticated clean-room atmosphere used for the facial tracking system may seem complex and a bit daunting now, but give the system development a few iterations over a few years and it will be streamlined and, well...magic.

For a much more in depth dialog regarding this technology, I wholeheartedly recommend reading:
The Diamond Age: or A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer

In particular, pay attention to the character, Miranda, and the description of her career (as a real-time actor, "ractor", in interactive video games) and her relationship to her clients.  Note, this is a less prominent theme within the book, which focuses on nanotech, or rather the political ramifications of a commonplace decentralized manufacturing resulting from nanotech-as-a-utility.

I've found this a thoroughly engaging and entertaining read for many reasons, but I've always remembered Miranda and her career.  This idea Neal Stephenson laid out has stuck with me for, well, 15 years now.

Artificial Sweeteners: Outwitting the Wisdom of the Body?

This seems to be some preliminary findings on some ongoing research. Research, I suspect, that is long overdue.
I've never trusted artificial sweeteners, and have instinctively shied away from them as a rule.

I'm looking forward to more conclusive results.

May 21st, 2008 - PART 2

After striking camp I changed my shirt and socks and we headed to the cafeteria in Market Square for breakfast. I had a big bowl of oatmeal, coffee, and a big sugary cinnamon roll. After we finished we headed to the main visitor's center to figure out which trail to take for our hike. We decided on the South Kaibob Trail as we figured that we could plan on hiking to Skeleton Point and maybe even further to the river at the bottom if we felt up to it. We went back to the car and loaded up our day packs. I filled my pack's 2 liter bladder and added a couple bottles of Gatorade along with a couple apples, a Zone bar, and a Power bar for high energy snacks. Additionally, I had a small first aid kit in the pack and my pocket knife. Because a huge cold front had moved across the country, the weather was overcast, still amazingly windy, and unusually cold. In fact, I wore a t-shirt, a zip up sweater, and my wind breaker just to keep warm. I also wore my new hat as it was sunny, at least for now. I had to tighten the chin strap to ensure that it wouldn't blow off.

Our preparations finished, we went and waited for the green shuttle bus that would take us to the trail head. The ride was short. On the way we talked with a couple of other passengers and S. joked with Charlie the bus driver.

We arrived, disembarked, and put on our packs. Walking up to the trail, I looked down into the canyon. "Wow", I thought, "we're really high up." After looking over just for a second or two, with no formality we simply started down the first of the switchbacks.

The grade was steep but the trail cut into the canyon was well made. We descended at a good clip, pausing only briefly now and again to admire the view and snap a picture or two. Often, I would look back and marvel at how far we had dropped. The first 10 or so minutes hiking were in the shade but after the trail reached a ridge we moved further in to the canyon and into sunlight. I took off my windbreaker shell at the end of the ridge where the trail returned to the increasingly familiar switchbacks.

The sky was full of clouds and the strong cold wind seemed to be bringing more clouds rather than dispersing the ones already present. From the look of things, the forecast of only a 20% chance of rain seemed overly optimistic.

As we descended, Scott's knees started to bother him. I could tell from his occasional comments that he was debating with himself as to whether or not he could hike all the way to the river and out; and that he certainly wanted to try. I myself wondered how well I would perform after only 3 hours of sleep and 6 or 7 miles of night hiking. I resolved to keep this concern to myself since the whole reason we were here was to hike the canyon.

We continued our brisk descent slowing briefly to gingerly work our way around a ranger led tour group that kept stopping for lectures.

Besides the tour group, there were quite a few people on the trail already, even though it wasn't yet 8am. I don't recall seeing more than 2 or 3 solo hikers. There were a good number of couples hiking and then there were also a few groups - often of teenagers chaperoned by adults.

We reached the first scenic area listed on the trail map as a destination for a shorter hike in record time. I was glad to see they had toilets as I needed to use the facilities. The area was on top of a wide peninsula that jutted out into the canyon. This peninsula was bare exposed rock and it ended in what appeared to be a cliff. I headed out to the overlook to see the view and snap a couple photos but stopped about 3/4 out because of the ferocious wind. While the wind was fairly concerning while hiking, out on this exposed finger of rock it had become quite alarming. As I stood there and debated whether I wanted to continue, S. caught up with me and kept walking. I followed after. The view was extraordinary. We had descended far enough that we could now make out more detail of the canyon floor - which is to say that we could now distinguish trees from grass from rocks. The constant driving wind actually made talking rather difficult. I didn't feel safe as I figured if the wind gusted stronger it could really cause a problem. As we headed back off the finger I felt it necessary to hold onto the top of my hat as I thought that even with the chin strap it could be ripped off. Just as we were nearly off the peninsula we spotted a big ranger led tour group and so rushed to get on the trail ahead of them.

We continued our descent. There is a lot of variety to the trail, actually. In some places it is just dirt sloping downward - these sections are too short and far between. Much of the trail is steps of one kind or another. Some steps are formed from chiseled rock - there is a lot of difference in these as the rock is often irregular and difficult to walk on or over. A lot of stairs are formed from a log set crosswise across the trail and then backfilled with dirt and rocks - a lot of these were fine to walk down, but often we did so knowing that they'd be hard to walk up as the rise was so great.

As we continued down we couldn't help but notice the black clouds piling up to the west and upwind of us. They were low and brooding and ominous. We were moving down the trail at a fast pace as we began to feel that the weather wouldn't hold indefinitely. I paused only long enough to shed another layer of clothing, down to my short sleeved sport shirt.

Winded from a prolonged stretch of fast paced hiking, we pulled off in a big open area next to the trail. IT was located about 1 or 2 hundred yards uphill of Skeleton Point and looked to be used for tying up mules. S. ate a Zone bar and I ate an apple while we discussed what to do. S. was even more worried about his knees as they were hurting pretty bad. My right knee had started to hurt as well, in the back. I hadn't had that problem in years. I was more concerned about the weather, however, as the sky looked like it was preparing to dump and I could feel the barometric pressure changing.

S. said he really wanted to hike all the way to the bottom but didn't think his knees would be able to do it. I could tell he was a little frustrated. I took a moment before I replied and then said that it sure looked like a big storm was coming and I that I'd hate to get caught out in it. I continued, saying that if it were just our knees I'd try for the canyon floor but that since the weather seemed to be against us I figured we should turn back. I think maybe he had hoped I would urge him onward but agreed that turning back was the prudent course of action. THat decided, we finished eating in silence.

Zipping our trash into our packs, we stood up and put them on and started our trek uphill back the way we came. After about 10 minutes, I asked S. about his knees nad he reported that they felt much better. I was glad to hear it as I'd forgotten his knees more going downhill than uphill. On the other hand, my right knee was starting to hurt sharply.

S. had set his runner's watch at the beginning of our hike and it had taken us 1 hour fifteen minutes to get down to Skeleton Point at which point he set the lap timer when we headed back up. He wanted to beat or equal our downhill time with our uphill time. I called him a "crazy runner person". However, we hiked at a fast pace, him because he wanted to beat his time, me because I wanted to beat the rain.

About 20 or 30 minutes into our upward hike I really started to struggle. I couldn't keep up with S.'s faster pace and the pain in my knee was quite bad. S. would stop and wait for me now and again and when I would catch up he would be rested and so would take off up the hill. For quite a while I attempted to forgo rest stops in an effort to try and keep up with him. Then for a while I got pretty annoyed, which while perhaps somewhat understandable wasn't really useful.

By the time we reached the big area with the bathroom facilities I was moving pretty slowly. S. went to use the facilities and I pulled a Gatorade out of my pack and chugged most of it. We started out again and I resolved to myself to hike faster. This lasted quite awhile but I still could not match S.'s pace. In the end, I realized that skipping rest stops wasn't practical. I also realized that if S. wanted to hike out together then he would have to slow his pace as it was impossible for me to increase mine without causing myself problems. I remembered my hiking from Boy Scouts and that it is the faster hiker's job to keep the group together. Rather than get mad for some silly reason, I decided that if S. wanted to hike out by himself more quickly, then I'd just let him. Instead of hurting myself by trying to keep up with him I resolved to hike at a more natural pace and take care of myself.

It was interesting to see that there were a lot of people on the trail still down into the canyon. It was still early, maybe 9:30 and so the people heading down trail were hikers who got a later start that we. The trail was actually starting to get crowded. S. and I were both surprised at how many people were hiking without any water, especially since all the rangers and information at the visitor's center specify anywhere from 1 to 3 liters of water (and snacks) per person depending on which trail point you hiked to.

I shortened my stride to alleviate the pressure on the back of my knee and it helped. I concentrated on walking more softly. That worked for awhile until, well, I was pretty tired and wasn't concentrating very well. Many of the stairs were rough or had a large rise and were hard on the legs. After a few minutes of struggling with trying to walk gently on the uneven terrain and slowing my pace way down I got frustrated with my progress and just started pumping my arms and hauling ass. I decided to just ignore the pain. I still couldn't catch S. but I didn't really care if I did. At that point I just wanted to finish. I figured it wouldn't have been so difficult a hike for me if I'd had a good night of sleep and at least hadn't hiked all night. "Regardless of the cause of the situation", I thought to myself, "let's just push through and resolve it."

I still had to stop occasionally to catch my breath, but I didn't stay stopped for long. Sometimes I'd snap a picture of the dark clouds rolling in. I was amazed people were still descending and started to wonder if they knew more about the weather than I did. Sometimes I found myself clenching my fists and would have to consciously release them.

At one point I saw a ranger up ahead who was talking to all the hikers coming down the trail. When I finally caught up with him it turned out that he was telling people that there was actually a 20% chance of snow! Amazing.

At another point the trail up rounded a point and the wind which had been blowing us safely towards the cliff face now was at our backs. I spread my arms wide and let it mostly push me up that section. It felt refreshing and exhilarating. A couple of turns later and we were hiking into a headwind.

The last 15 minutes or so of hiking out were the hardest due to my left leg cramping up. By that time, however, I didn't really care as I knew I was nearly done. I just kept slogging through until I reached the top just a couple minutes behind S. It turns out that we hiked out in 1 hour flat which makes our round trip to Skeleton Point 2 1/4 hours. The visitor's center estimates the average time for that 6 mile round trip to be 4-6 hours. When S. found that tidbit out he seemed to feel pretty proud. I guess I did too, though it took me about 10 or 15 minutes before I caught my breath and started to feel better.

S. was eating an apple when the shuttle bus pulled up. The door opened and it was the same driver, Charlie, that S. had joked with on the way over. Charlie told S. he couldn't eat food on the bus but that he could hold the half eaten apple in his hand. S. tried to finish the apple before the bus was ready to go but couldn't. Charlie started to give S. a countdown from 10 which caused S. to quit eating and hop aboard, laughing all the way to his seat.

After I had sat on the bus a few minutes my legs felt much better - so did my feet. My knee was stiff and a little sore but not like when I was climbing stairs. Maybe the lesson is that immediate pain isn't as important as we think it is. Or maybe I need to reflect on my ready willingness to push myself to pain and bodily harm in an effort to accomplish something quickly that could better be done more quietly and in its own time. Perhaps there is something to both those thoughts.

Back at the car, we tucked our packs in the trunk and headed for the showers. When we got there, the change clerk was absent and several people said they had been waiting for 15 or more minutes. We were anxious to get clean since we hadn't showered since yesterday - before we hiked twice in Sedona. We hopped back in the car and went down the road 2 minutes to the bank and got a couple rolls of quarters.

Once back, the showers were uneventful yet luxuriously hot. It really is a delight how much a hot shower and a shave can lighten one's mood.

That done, we took a minute to repack and reorganize the car and we were off - way back south to highway 40 West to Kingman where we turned North to see Hoover Dam. It was a beautiful sunny drive and we had a lot of fun talking and joking and looking at stuff out the window as we sped through the desert. Our spirits were high after the big hike.

Hoover Dam is magnificent. Normally, S. and I would go through the museum and watch the film when we go to an attraction, but we just didn't feel like it this time. Instead, we just walked out over and across the dam and I took a few pictures and S. told me what he remembered from when he took the tour a few years ago.

Afterwards, we drove on. S. asked if I wanted to go into Las Vegas and I said no. Instead, I replied, that I'd prefer to make more time driving towards California. That seemed reasonable so we went South on highway 15 all the way to Barstow, CA which is pretty much in the center of Southern California. We didn't really intend to go that far but since we didn't think it through that's the way it worked out. We checked in an inexpensive motel around 8:30 and then went down the road a couple blocks for dinner. We were really tired and ended up snipping at each other a little just out of shear exhaustion. Back at the motel we hauled our duffels into the room and just watched t.v. for a few minutes before going to sleep.

May 21st, 2008 - PART 1

S. got up to use the bathroom around 1:30am and woke me up as we were in a very small tent. 15 or 20 minutes later, I realized I was wide awake. So I dressed, grabbed my flashlight, left the tent and stopped at the car to exchange my boots for sandals as I figured they were easier to store in the tent and went to the restroom to take a leak. While there I realized that I didn't feel remotely sleepy and had the idea that I might wander a bit until I felt drowsy again.

Heading back the short distance to the campsite, I grabbed my light waterproof windbreaker and started walking.

Wow, it's Tuesday already.

S. got up at 6 this morning to go fro a run. I had woke up a couple of times during the night so decided to get up myself. I took a couple of minutes to rub the sleep from my eyes and then showered and got dressed and packed. S. returned when I was done and while he cleaned up I typed yesterdays events into my livejournal blog to share with my friends.

I think the 2 hour time difference messed with us a bit but we got ready, had a nice breakfast downstairs, and drove to REI (a camping store) by 8:40am or so. REI wasn't open yet so we swung in to a nearby Target store to kill a little time. On S.'s recommendation I picked up some athletic shirts that were designed to be light and wick away moisture and keep you dry; they are quasi-futuristic looking. After a bit we headed over to REI to look around. We weren't really awake yet and had forgot the primary reason we were there - to find camping hats! We headed down the street a ways to a hiking/camping outfitter and S. bought an LED headlamp and I bought a wide brimmed hiking hat with a drapey covering in the back that shields the neck. S. thinks it looks ridiculous and claimed I was silly. I thought for a moment and admitted that it's a bit like wearing an umbrella. Smiling, we headed out. Later in the car, he admitted to owning a similar hat that he no longer uses.

Roswell, NM is a nice little town. There isn't as much kitschy-alien-goodness as I expected, but there's enough. It's about 800 miles to Roswell from KC, which isn't bad.

The weather is sunny and warm. The people are friendly and laid back. Good times.

Since we arrived around 10:30 last night, we didn't go walking around, but we did drive up and down the strip. They have old fashioned oval street lights, to which they've added black oblong alien eyes...fun! The McDonald's has been build to look like a UFO. Aaaand...there's a few t-shirt and souvenir shops. Lastly, there is a Roswell UFO Museum and Research Center. $5 gets you in the door. It's an interesting mix of serious and silly. There are lots of blown up photocopies of newspaper articles, official statements, and photographs. There are also a number of odd little dioramas made from plastic model parts and railroad set terrain. They have a prop alien corpse from a made for t.v. movie that they've used in a lifesize diorama of an alien autopsy. They also have a stage with a lot of chairs for guest speakers. Of course, they also have a gift shop. Additionally, they have a research library. It's amazing. I suspect they have at least one of any book ever written on UFOs, aliens, or anything related. They also have a lot of videos. They also have what appears to be an extensive collection of periodicals and other materials. Everything is painstakingly labeled and cross indexed and organized. There are 3 or 4 rooms of this stuff. They have staff to help you find what you're looking for.

Amazing.

Looking at the library, I got a chill from the revelation that probably 10s of thousands of man hours were spent building it.

Wow. That seems like an awful lot of time.

We left Roswell in the morning and drove to the White Sands National Park. $3 gets you in the park entrance behind the visitors center. The fine white sand is luxurious on the toes. The enormity of the desert area is amazing. People bring sleds and slide down the dunes. It's startling how much life is present amongst such an arid and alkali environment. This was a big highpoint, well worth the time.

We made one small unplanned stop after White Sands at a place that grew pistachio nuts and grapes and made their own wine, and roasted and flavored their own nuts. They also made lots of different kinds of candy. The lady who ran the retail store was super nice. We tried free samples of red chili pistachios, green chili pistachios, garlic pistachios, cinnamon pistachios, the whole gamut really. I tasted some of their wine. It was good, in particular, the pomogranet wine was light and refreshing. We bought some pistachios and candy and headed back on the road. Later, we ate some pistachios - wow, they are fresh and delishious!

We continued on to Tucson, AZ, which is about 8 hours from Roswell. I had been to Tucson 20 years ago. Either we didn't go to the same parts that I had been to or else the city has grown enormously...horrendously since I was there. Also, there exists the possibilities that we didn't go to where I had been or I had been to some sort of suburb.

Anyway, it was a bit of a disappointment. I've got memories in Tucson from 20 years ago, and I suppose it's time to leave them behind me on the dusty open road.

We ended up going on to Scottsdale, AZ. We arrived around 8:30 and were fairly tired. We checked in to a motel and then walked over to eat dinner at a Mexican restaurant.

Tomorrow we plan on goofing off in Scottsdale/Phoenix a bit (REI) and then heading up to Sedona where we plan on some hiking and some camping. Next after Sedona will be the Grand Canyon.

More adventures to follow.

New Source for Biofuels Discovered by Researchers At The University of Texas at Austin


April 23, 2008

AUSTIN, Texas - A newly created microbe produces cellulose that can be turned into ethanol and other biofuels, report scientists from The University of Texas at Austin who say the microbe could provide a significant portion of the nation's transportation fuel if production can be scaled up.

Along with cellulose, the cyanobacteria developed by Professor R. Malcolm Brown Jr. and Dr. David Nobles Jr. secrete glucose and sucrose. These simple sugars are the major sources used to produce ethanol.

"The cyanobacterium is potentially a very inexpensive source for sugars to use for ethanol and designer fuels," says Nobles, a research associate in the Section of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology.

Brown and Nobles say their cyanobacteria can be grown in production facilities on non-agricultural lands using salty water unsuitable for human consumption or crops.

Other key findings include:

  • The new cyanobacteria use sunlight as an energy source to produce and excrete sugars and cellulose

  • Glucose, cellulose and sucrose can be continually harvested without harming or destroying the cyanobacteria (harvesting cellulose and sugars from true algae or crops, like corn and sugarcane, requires killing the organisms and using enzymes and mechanical methods to extract the sugars)

  • Cyanobacteria that can fix atmospheric nitrogen can be grown without petroleum-based fertilizer input


  • They recently published their research in the journal, 'Cellulose'.

    Nobles made the new cyanobacteria (also known as blue-green algae) by giving them a set of cellulose-making genes from a non-photosynthetic "vinegar" bacterium, Acetobacter xylinum, well known as a prolific cellulose producer.

    The new cyanobacteria produce a relatively pure, gel-like form of cellulose that can be broken down easily into glucose.

    "The problem with cellulose harvested from plants is that it's difficult to break down because it's highly crystalline and mixed with lignins [for structure] and other compounds," Nobles says.

    He was surprised to discover that the cyanobacteria also secrete large amounts of glucose or sucrose, sugars that can be directly harvested from the organisms.

    "The huge expense in making cellulosic ethanol and biofuels is in using enzymes and mechanical methods to break cellulose down," says Nobles. "Using the cyanobacteria escapes these expensive processes."

    Sources being used or considered for ethanol production in the United States include switchgrass and wood (cellulose), corn (glucose) and sugarcane (sucrose). True algae are also being developed for biodiesel production.

    Brown sees a major benefit in using cyanobacteria to produce ethanol is a reduction in the amount of arable land turned over to fuel production and decreased pressure on forests.

    "The pressure is on all these corn farmers to produce corn for non-food sources," says Brown, the Johnson & Johnson Centennial Chair in Plant Cell Biology. "That same demand, for sucrose, is now being put on Brazil to open up more of the Amazon rainforest to produce more sugarcane for our growing energy needs. We don't want to do that. You'll never get the forests back."

    Brown and Nobles calculate that the approximate area needed to produce ethanol with corn to fuel all U.S. transportation needs is around 820,000 square miles, an area almost the size of the entire Midwest.

    They hypothesize they could produce an equal amount of ethanol using an area half that size with the cyanobacteria based on current levels of productivity in the lab, but they caution that there is a lot of work ahead before cyanobacteria can provide such fuel in the field. Work with laboratory scale photobioreactors has shown the potential for a 17-fold increase in productivity. If this can be achieved in the field and on a large scale, only 3.5 percent of the area growing corn could be used for cyanobacterial biofuels.

    Cyanobacteria are just one of many potential solutions for renewable energy, says Brown.

    "There will be many avenues to become completely energy independent, and we want to be part of the overall effort," Brown says. "Petroleum is a precious commodity. We should be using it to make useful products, not just burning it and turning it into carbon dioxide."

    Brown and Nobles are now researching the best methods to scale up efficient and cost-effective production of cyanobacteria. Two patent applications, 20080085520 and 20080085536, were recently published in the United States Patent and Trade Office.
