Fascinations!

If I were to give you one word today, “fascinating” what is the first thing that comes to your mind.

Wonder, why all of a sudden am I talking about this 11 letter word? Wonder, what is it that has made me get into the things that have anything to do with the same.

For most of us, life has always been that one fascinating thing which has intrigued us, made us happy, made us sad, have been the cause of all sorts of emotions going in our minds.

And of the anatomical aspects, what has fascinated me the most is our ability to see and make sense out of things out there.

The process which starts from our retina going to the optical nerves to the brain, where we actually construct meaning from the things we see, has been well studied and documented.

Have always believed, that things we take for granted, as being coming naturally to us, have been the most difficult to comprehend.

And what better way to demonstrate the same, than by teaching an algorithm how to go about doing visual recognition.

Have you ever wondered, how a child would actually perceive things in his mind? If not, you will have to do so, in case you want to train your algorithm to do things similar to how a human brain does.

You will have to get to the very basics of the various wavelengths being detected by the receptors and being given a meaning through the very fundamentals of NLP.

Everything ranging from emotions to mindset, from perceptions to language, starts from the information we receive through our senses.

Be it love, hate, intelligence, the one thing that remains common in the development of all is how comprehensively we receive and perceive the information gained from our senses.

Which makes me believe the very essence of life is framed through the lenses of our receptors.

After all, it’s about making sense, which is immensely fascinating in itself. Isn’t it?
