Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great!

Posted in Conferences, Companies

Google Tech Talks January 25, 2007 ABSTRACT Project retrospectives help teams examine what went right and what went wrong on a project. But traditionally, retrospectives (also known as "post-mortems") are only performed at the end of the project -- too late to help. In organizations where teams develop using iterative, incremental methods, Agile retrospectives at the end of each itera...

Advanced Topics In Programming Languages: Closures For Java

Advanced Topics In Programming Languages: Closures For Java

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Development

Google Tech Talks January 17, 2007 ABSTRACT We propose to add Closures to the Java Programming Language. Closures simplify the use of APIs that rely on anonymous class instances, such as the concurrency APIs and callbacks. More importantly, closures support control abstractions, which are APIs that act as programmer-defined control constructs. This talk describes the proposed language extension...

It is commonplace to regard health crises, sickness, malnutrition, famine and natural resource collapse as overwhelming problems of our world, typically associated with poverty. Rather, they are symptoms of a more fundamental failing in how we deal with the world, and to whom we give the tools to engage. Four billion poor people are not just a problem, they are world's greatest resource for...

Motion Estimation from Image and Inertial Measurements

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

Google TechTalks February 24, 2006 Dennis Strelow Robust motion from monocular image measurements would be an enabling technology for Mars rover, micro air vehicle, and search and rescue robot navigation; and for modeling complex environments from video. While algorithms exist for estimating six degree of freedom motion from monocular image measurements, motion from image measurements suffers f...
