July 15th – 2018 – Cliffs AR Resources

While this list isn’t a bunch of stuff that is the hottest, greatest or even newest, it is what I’ve been looking at. If you want the latest resource then keep on moving because this is my resource list. I’m giving you the look into what I’ve been looking at, watching, reading and everything outside the actual programming aspect of it all. This could mean links to articles I’ve read, books I’ve read, books I want to read, online deals for resources, tutorials and everything. Not everything on this list is free, but it’s worth checking out!

Books:

Common Sense, the Turing Test, and the Quest for Real AI (MIT Press) 1st Edition by Hector J. Levesque (Author)
This book has been intersting just learning more about everything the title is. Common Sense, The Turing Test and the Quest for Real AI. I’m nearly done, but it does bring up interesting studies that were done to try to create AI as well how scientists are trying.

Online Udemy Courses

Introduction to Unity for Absolute Beginners 2018

If you’ve seen my last posts, then you’ve seen some things I been creating. I did those through a free Udemy course by Diego Herrera. I was unsure of where to go for AR and Unity stuff and I saw him but I wasn’t sure of his teaching style. There’s a ton of cool Udemy courses out there showing cool things, but I’ve purchased those courses and the teaching style just seemed out of place and hacked together. He offered the course for free so I gave it a shot. I absolutely loved his tone and teaching style that when I went looking for more, I went and made a purchase for his latest course.

Discover Voice Controlled AR Apps | Unity & A Cloud Based AI

Just by watching the preview for it, it seems like something I can’t wait to dig into after writing this article. Expect more of my next blog posts to be focused around what I create in that course.

That’s all I have for today. Short and simple and of course I came up with it in the past 6 hours cause I was so excited to share with what I’ve been checking out today. I look forward to bringing you more info on what I was able to find out on my journey!
