Pretty foreign territory for me. I'm afraid I still don't quite undestand
exactly what the purpose would be in your case.
I will someday need to build some multidim arrays for an AI bot that helps
motor/speech/vision impaired users decide on controller and feedback
options, pick out words and phrases, guide them through developing skills in
music, art, and the written word (using ordinary inexpensive and refurbished
computers) from expandable libraries, by learning their abilities and
desires over time.
In fact, I'm thinking in terms of network sharing with this stuff in
realtime. There could be ways of sharing efforts among such people,
especially kids, where developing skills in one can replace deficits in
another and visa versa, until you have a connected group that can produce
plays, video, music, run automated T-shirt shops, signage...almost
Therefore, I _think_ I might be interested in what you're doing, albeit a
wee bit over my head right now ;-), so please stay in touch. Building
quickly and easily updatable and customizeable models in a venue like Rev
and Transcript could be a distinct advantage, but we definitely need to know
how to make arrays work efficiently.
