Learning at Superhuman Speed ​​/ Sudo Null IT News

Do you want to learn how to play a musical instrument? Or maybe dance? Easy! Wearables can help you with that by directly targeting muscle memory.

Look at this glove. Don't let its apparent simplicity fool you. This seemingly boring black leather fingerless glove that looks like any other from a sports store can speed up the process of learning, for example, a piano melody with micro-vibrations! nine0003

“I have a glove that can teach you how to play the piano,” Chad Starner tells me when I call him to talk about the future of wearable computing. Currently, he is a professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology and also the technical director of Google Glass. His introduction to wearables began as a student at MIT in the 1990s.
“While we were talking, you could already learn “Oh Grace” (Amazing Grace),” he adds at the end of our conversation. nine0009 "Truth? I don't believe him, "while we're talking?"
“Of course,” he says, and invites me to Atlanta so I can see for myself.

And now Caitlin Seim, a graduate student, puts the miracle glove on my hand. Each of the five finger holes contains a flat vibration motor. All five lie on the knuckles of my fingers and are connected to a micro-controller on the back of my hand. Seim programmed it so that it would start the motors on my fingers in a sequence that repeats the one with which my fingers should hit the piano keys. nine0003

But she doesn't tell me yet which tune I'm going to study. “You will just feel a little vibration,” she says, turning on the electronics. Right after that, Starner takes me to look around in his lab. He is involved in a myriad of different projects: a translator program for Google Glass, a magnetic language implant to issue silent commands to a computer, a smart vest that will help divers "communicate" with dolphins, "smart" toys for police dogs so that trainers can even better understand that what they are trying to show them and many other amazing gadgets. nine0003

Once a minute, for the next two hours, the motors in my glove come to life and I try to make out the sequence: zhzhzhzh... middle finger... zhzhzhzh. .. ring finger... zhzhzhzh... zhzhzhzh... ow... zhzhzhzh... uh... zhzhzhzh... zhzhzhzh... damn it! "Impossible," I write in my notebook.

Finally, Starner leads me to the piano. He plays the first part of the melody - 15 notes that the glove was supposed to teach me. I recognize the melody - it's Beethoven's "Ode to Joy". I take off my glove.

"Start from here," Starner says, tapping the first key with his finger. I put my fingers on the keys... Middle finger... middle... ring finger... "I don't know," I say, embarrassed.

"Don't you think about it," says Starner.

And I start over: Middle... middle... ring... little finger... little finger... nameless... middle... index... "Go crazy!" - I say, continuing, nevertheless, to play. I finish the first part, the second and start playing the third. nine0003

“Wait! interrupts Starner, “did you ever play that tune?”

“Never,” I answer him. And it's true, I never took piano lessons. He examines the glove in confusion and discovers that it has been programmed to "vibrate" all four parts - 61 notes instead of 15 as he thought. He explains that students usually teach one part at a time.

I go back to the piano. The first few attempts are still difficult. I have to learn the melody no matter what, but after a few minutes I can play the melody perfectly. I have a feeling that I have stumbled upon one of my undiscovered talents and this makes me feel pleasantly excited. nine0003

"You just know what you're supposed to do, don't you?" Simon remarks. She recently learned to play "Ode to Joy" while wearing a glove while preparing her application for a new research grant. “It’s like looking at someone else’s hand,” she teases me.

Starner and his colleagues believe that the repeated vibrations generated by the glove stimulate muscle memory, which in turn reduces the time it takes to rehearse. They also studied the effect of the glove on people with spinal injuries and found that it could help them regain some of the sensation in their hands. Now Starner's lab is trying to find a use for the glove in teaching ABC to the blind as well, which would show that the technology could help learn not just sequences, but also language. nine0003

“We don't know the limits of this technology ourselves,” says Starner. “Can we use these vibrations to teach people to dance? Or, for example, to teach baseball players to throw the ball better?

He also remembers the scene from The Matrix where Neo and Trinity get into the helicopter and when Neo asks if Trinity can fly it, she replies: "Not yet..." her head.

"Well, you can't do that," I say.

Starner answers me with a smirk: “Not yet….”

PS. Hi Habr! This is my first translation. The article just seemed very interesting and I thought that maybe someone else would consider it as such. I will be glad to constructive criticism in the messages or in the comments. Good luck to everyone for the rest of Friday.

Big Experiment #2: Year of the Five Arts

In 2014, I got bored as much as the mother of the cute and beloved baby Barbara can get bored. There was really no time for anything, including the “sleep” option, but I wanted to occupy my head. nine0003

This is how the Year of Five Languages ​​happened in my life: I just wrote down in a column all the languages ​​that I wanted to study at that moment, and started learning them, having a generous 30 minutes a day. What happened next, you can read here - I will not retell.

And as they say in books, “years passed” – many realizations and discoveries happened, and the baby Varvara turned into a beautiful and independent four-year-old. I got the long-awaited freedom and energy to pull off Big Experiment #2, which later turned into Arts&Languages, my third favorite child :)

2016-2017 became the Year of the Five Arts

It all started with the question: “Now, without hesitation, say the first thing that comes to your mind – what would you like to do?” The answer came instantly: "dance."

Ok, I said to myself.

The last time I took dance lessons was in the 7th grade. Then there were the years of martial arts, and at discos my friends and I stood in a circle and practiced punches (well, except for the slow kicks, of course, and nuffing els metters))

Zhenya and dancing were not a first-order association. OK Google, I said. Google turned up options nearby. nine0003

It would also be nice to learn how to sing (Zhenya and singing broke up after the third grade). The rational part of me at that time suggested: “maybe we’ll draw, you definitely succeeded in this.” Ok, I said Google!

Singing and dancing were found in the courses complete with acting skills. Ooook.

After starting vocals and learning music almost in my old age (to go to a music school after 30 – haha, who would have thought) I wanted to learn how to play the piano. Ok, my husband said and gave me a good synthesizer. nine0003

I wanted to try everything at once. was in the garden, and we studied the piano together).

I decided that this year I will try everything. I promised myself not to be upset if I didn’t dance like a prima, if I didn’t sing like an opera singer, and if I didn’t come home with my ear cut off like Comrade. Van Gogh. I'll just try. nine0003

I'm 13, I said to myself, I can't really do anything and I don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

Unlike the thirteen-year-old, I got a good armor, which is called “adequate perception”. Because it used to be oh so hard (here is my old, very honest and painful text on this subject) - I could abandon my favorite pastime after a single critical remark from my relatives. As a result, by my 20s, I became an absolutely “uncreative person”, unable to sing, constrained, not drawing, not writing, and so on. I was the best at boating, I had fun there, and creative people were something magical and unattainable for me :)

At thirty-one, I decided I didn't care anymore.

I will screw up as long as it takes to learn. I won't expect anything from myself other than what I get out of the program. I will listen to those who know better - but only if they are authorities. I will not compare myself with those who are engaged in parallel with me, especially if they have already studied before. And I also decided that I was thirteen, so everything is possible.

High? Kaif)

Lessons I learned from the Year of the Five Arts (with useful links :))

Creative people are made of flesh and blood, I would even say “poop too”.

Creativity is quite a job, work, skills, reflection, accumulation of emotional and cultural baggage. And already on the basis of skills and an active creative process, “insights” come.

No matter how brilliant you are, if you don't do a damn thing, you won't succeed. It turns out for those who invest and develop. nine0003

This discovery is perhaps the most important, because it gives a chance to all those who have "no talent", "no voice", "no ability" - everything can be developed if there is a desire.

Everything can be developed if there is a desire. If you don't believe me, read Van Gogh's diaries. He began to paint as an adult - and plowed, plowed so that he became one of the most recognizable artists in the world.

If you have wanted something for a long time, it's time to try it.

Ask yourself the question: “what would I like to do?”, listen to yourself. And start. nine0003

Read: Twyla Tharp's The Art Habit is an excellent practical guide that dispels any illusions :)

About Painting

Why, why aren't schoolchildren allowed to work with oils? Yes, I understand, it's expensive, the solvents are smelly, everything gets dirty - but this is a divine material. Oil is a thrill. Mix paints, achieve the desired shade - learn to do this without squeezing out half a tube, but carefully, feeling, almost meditating. Drawing helps to disconnect from any extraneous thoughts, concentrating on the process. nine0003

Oil work can be touched up, painted over. This is not a watercolor for you, where there is no room for error. Oil is wonderful.

To paint in oils, it would be nice to first understand the drawing and constructions. This helps, the drawing is needed so that later 10 times everything is not corrected.

A picture can come to life and take on a life of its own, the main thing is not to interfere and feel, sometimes even stop thinking and analyzing in time. Even the ugliest and crooked drawing can take on a life of its own and become special, but this is not about technique, but about what you are trying to invest. nine0003

Realism is cool, but go to a contemporary art exhibition** if you didn't get realistic cars or princesses in seventh grade, and that's when you decided you were mediocrity and decay :)

Dry technical drawing or thousandths interior roses can be boring and uninteresting to anyone, no matter how beautiful and polished they are, if they are soulless.

(** But it's important to keep in mind that the guys whose works hang at contemporary art exhibitions can draw well and beautifully - ed. )

Painting: 5 out of 5, my inner child rejoices and wants to continue .


Oh, how difficult everything is with this.

It's hard to imagine how many people's voices were taken away.

After all, as at first - the baby screams, resonates with everything that is possible - we grow up loud and sonorous, and this is precisely the basis of high-quality singing later.

And then “don't yell”, “don't cry”, “behave yourself”, etc. begins. etc. Boys whose voices break, and this coincides with the end of singing at school - "open your mouth, don't just sing." nine0003

Don't make noise, don't stick your head out, speak quietly.

And a generation of people with a clenched jaw is growing up, which at best is hoarse on vocal cords and believes that they shouldn't sing at all. (The people around will die - but in fact, “the people around me will think badly of me”). And from stress, the ligaments are clamped even more tightly, and instead of a strong beautiful sound, a hoarse moan comes out.

It's hard to start singing, especially when you were previously taught to sing in a demanding, peremptory form, indicating that everything is wrong (even with the best of intentions). nine0003

It was hard for me, and it remains not too easy, I am learning - I did not think that extracting a clear and powerful sound from myself is a job of such complexity. Once it worked, the second time it didn't.

And this difficulty comes from my head - when I am relaxed and in a safe environment, I enjoy how I sound. If the situation is stressful, I get lost, I switch to ligaments. It took about a year to agree with myself that I hit the notes, and not to panic when 10 people hear me alone. nine0003

Main vocal discovery: Lack of voice or hearing is a myth. The voice appears as soon as the brains are rebuilt, what needs to be relaxed relaxes, there is an understanding of how to breathe and how to make sounds. Hearing can also be developed.

(I state this with authority as a person “without hearing and voice”, who a year later sang a solo piece from the stage)

The speech apparatus can be developed, it can be trained, this requires regular classes and exercises. And you also need a good teacher who will help you believe in yourself and will kindly control and correct. nine0003

Another important thing is to sing what you like. If the song does not resonate with you, then this is just an exercise, “interior roses”, nothing more. If the song is about you, everything is completely different.

Life hack for beginners : go outside, find a place where not many people walk, but cars drive. Sing at the top of your voice and with all the nonsense - so you will understand what you are really capable of - because at home you will be embarrassed by relatives or neighbors, on the street - by passers-by. But walking on the sidewalk along the road with cars passing by is a great plan, you won't care if someone hears you. This is how I go to kindergarten for my daughter - I walk along the sidewalk between the road and the forest and sing :)

And after a while it won't bother you at all, and you'll get high.

Read : if you feel that your voice is tight, your jaw is tense, your mouth hardly moves (and this happens to almost everyone who did not sing as a child + has a set of cockroaches in his head), then read the book by Christine Linklater “ Liberation of the voice” – how, in principle, to learn to sound. The book is not about vocals, but about finding your true sound and voice (after these exercises, I began to speak lower!)

My inner child gives singing 4+ out of 5, and 4+ for the fact that I am still in search of my sound, I want to find it as soon as possible, master it, but this is not a quick process :)


There were no childhood injuries here - they simply did not send me to the music school. There were myths that crazy aunts from the music school would drop the piano lid on the fingers of the students, and also that you would not have any personal life at all, because. all the best years of walking with friends after school you will spend with a teacher and a threat hanging over your fingers. nine0003

That's why I like to play.

A year ago I knew that notes 7, doremifasolasi. So what is C - this is before (yazhlingvist). This was the end of my musical knowledge. Therefore, the study of notes pleased me, although without practice they easily disappear from the head.

Playing scales is boring (well, it's really useful, yes, of course, but the longing is green), so I slowly and sadly analyze Jan Tiersen's Atlantique Nord and One summer's day of my adored Joe Hisaishi myself. nine0003

This is the music of my soul, it should sound in my house.

Life hack №1: before playing, take at least a few lessons with a good teacher - you need to put your hand so that it does not pinch, and for beginners, the muscles will be very tense at first, and this will interfere in the future.

Life hack #2: watch the layout videos on YouTube even if you don't know the sheet music. You can simply write off which key to press in what order. nine0003

Life hack No. 3: try to understand the notes at least minimally so that you can play them later (well, or sign what you spied on YouTube)) (I'm afraid all piano teachers should hate me for this advice, sorry))

Life hack №4: The course in which you learn to play without knowledge of notes is in English, you quickly start playing simple popular melodies.

Read : Music theory for dummies.

Life hack #5: playing the piano helps with vocals, helps develop your ear and sing clearer.

And definitely try to play the music that moves you. Scales are very necessary, yes, but - also play what you love, otherwise what's the point in all this?

My inner kinder gives the piano 5 out of 5 and wants to play it more often than anything else. (and also sticks stickers on the keys when learning new elements, in general, behaves indecently and rejoices :))

Acting skills


On the one hand, I can depict something under given conditions. On the other hand, I don’t want to portray something that needs to be invented by myself (yes, with my #I came up with sketches, it’s hard to come up with, I can’t seriously allocate time for this).

Another bug of mine is that in order to play something, you have to identify yourself with it, and I am superstitious. If something positive, then everything is fine, hey, but if you need to depict a funeral, well, I don’t want to. But tasks for emancipation do not raise questions, run around the room, depicting something strange? Easy)

I'm quite reserved, but at the same time I admire professional actors and even want to be like them a little :) But to invest in all this one hundred percent - not yet ...

Life hack: go to the theater for some good performances, just choose really proven and high-quality ones, so as not to leave with an incomprehensible sediment in your soul. Watch the actors play, even a few classes in the theater studio allow you to begin to understand what exactly they are doing and why. The effect of the performance may not be so bright, but watching professionals is interesting + very inspiring for growth. nine0003

The inner kinder does not know what to put on acting - he is interested and curious, but more like a spectator or a director :) and coordination of movements. As you can guess, I didn’t have much ice either :)

Something left from the stretching from the time of going to taekwon before (they put us on a twine very hard there, according to the principle “if I yell loudly maybe someone will save me?!” But Graceful swan didn’t work out of me there.0003

To dance something, I need time: to understand how it is done.

Life hack #1: for older beginner ballerinas - feel free to slow down and ask questions.

In general, don't be shy - that's half the battle, don't slouch - that's half the battle. Be attentive, listen, don't get distracted, don't be stupid, concentrate, stretch, sweat, pump your arms, pump your abs and legs. Landing from a jump, try to remember that you are not moving away from the blow - muscle memory makes the legs tighten, the body - grouped. You are not a little fighter, you are a graceful swan (hello to everyone who watched Peppa :))

Stretching is needed, stamina is needed - and love is also needed. And you can train a monkey to do not the most complex movements.

Life hack #2: wanted to start dancing for a long time? Google! Google urgently and the nearest good school, right now. There is also a site, my Varka likes to practice it, I tried it - I don’t have enough space in the apartment :) There are good routines, if you have a free large room - take a look!

Dancing flies 5 out of 5, because I want to do it and in a few years I want to dance really cool. nine0003

There is great power in being able to use and be friends with my body, so I try to stretch regularly and work to the maximum, but I still feel like I'm not doing enough.

What's next?

Starting the academic year 2016-17, I thought, “well, I’ll try everything, I’ll choose one thing.” Yeah, I chose it, it's called)) Everything remains in the same composition, but at a more conscious level. Now I clearly understand what I want next, and what tasks I set for myself.

And it would be fine if I stopped there - but the other day I decided to ask myself a question again, though modified. “And if you could choose any skill right now and become a master at it effortlessly, what would you choose?” nine0003

The answer amused me once again - I would like to compose music like Joe. Yayayaya, who still doesn’t really know the notes, can’t play any instrument normally, doesn’t understand music, because. listens to the same thing for a hundred years, and considers people who write music to be celestials???

Put out the light, curtain. And no, Google, until it's ok, calm down and leave your retirement activities :)))

P.S. Dear Universe, thank you very much for not being a neurosurgeon.
