I think that it is safe to say that all of you reading this post have a little bit of techie and or spy in you! Perhaps you just watched a James Bond movie? I mean why else would you be here reading a post on how to make your own night vision camera? You are not planning anything shady I hope? Having just watched the film “The Kingsmen” myself, this little project is right up my alley at this point! So let’s get right to it then!

The guys from Nonbony make this process look very simple to do, and it seems to work really great. First, they disassemble the camera and remove the IR lens from the webcam. Next, they put it right back together and then attach some infrared diodes and a resistor. I’m not sure exactly how they made this part, this would be just a bit over my head. Soldering is not one of my strong points at all. I know how to solder conceptually, but actually putting it into practice I’ve not done very well. I actually ruined an XBOX trying to solder it, luckily one of my colleagues is an electrical genius and easily fixed what I fried on the box! Do note that you may need to solder just a little bit!

Once all that is done, these guys turn of the lights, and demonstrate how the camera can actually see pretty much perfectly in the dark! This extremely cool and I can see many practical uses for something like this! If any of you guys try this, please film it and share it on social media! We’d love to see more of this!

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
