Why I+V+I=M ?

Originally, it stood for Intelligent Vision Interfaces Machines. which I invented and helped to develop when I worked at the National Research Council of Canada, using my training in AI, Computer Vision and Machine Learning.

Then, it stood for Independently Verified Information Machines, which I started developing, using my new data science skills, to make better use of the growing amount of various Open Data.

Now, it simply stands for the visual illusion IVI = M, which I can rephrase as following: “Sometime what you see is different from what it actually is”.

Having close ties with friends and relatives on different sides of the growing divide -here in Canada (where I live and work now) as well as there in USSR, Ukraine, Russia (where I lived and studies before) - allows me to see the what’s going from different perspectives. What I’m trying to do is to create a place - this newsletter - where all such perspectives can be safely shared, so that we all can better understand each other, while promoting democracy, tolerance and critical thinking.

Don’t hesitate to share your comments/ideas - either publicly (in Comments) or privately (by contacting me at ‘dg AT ivim.ca’)
