    Do any members of this group specialize in machine vision / optical character recognition? We are interested in software technology we can connect to ubiquitous cameras to "read" information (hazardous materials placards, container codes, motor carrier registration numbers etc.) on commercial vehicles operating within commercial vehicle inspection zones and facilities.

      Talk to the Scio Systems folks in Ann Arbor - they provide the OCR systems for USPS mail routing. Pretty advanced stuff. There is a long history of computer vision companies here in Ann Arbor - Eric Siezcka is a more recent serial entrepreneur in the space, but there were some big exits in the late 80's (e.g. Applied Intelligent Systems), etc.

    What does it mean when everything you do and everything in your life is connected to the net and is measured?

    • Larry J.

      Personal privacy breaks down verymquickly.The Net becomes a public space like a street and everyone who uses it loses all expectation that their location, actions, personal and business relationships etc., are include any privacy protection.

    I suggest the Bar at 327 Braun Court, our neighborhood bar down the street, to close out the night. It's barely marked, just says "BAR" on the door... http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-bar-at-327-braun-court-ann-arbor
