Are we dead yet?

I am quite frustrated with corona graphs in the news, since most reporters seem to have skipped math classes back then. For instance, just plotting the number of confirmed infections at the respective dates does not tell you anything due to the different time point of outbreak. So lets see whether I can do better:

With the site above, I tried to improve on a few things:

  • the Charts are live: they update themselves each time you load the site.
  • The curves are normalized by the time-point of outbreak so you can compare the course in different countries.
  • You can select the countries that you want to compare.
  • Different metrics are computed that allow comparing the corona countermeasures and impact across countries with different population size.

Need a fast way to tag faces in many images? Try Imaginario!

Today I've released Imaginario 0.9. The big feature coming with this new release is a face tagging flow which I believe will be the fastest and simplest you've ever used, despite it being all manual. I even sat down and spent some quality time with Blender to prepare a video to show it off:

While some people might actually think that I spent more time for making the video than for implementing the face tagging feature itself, this couldn't be farther from the truth: the face tagging branch has been being worked on for at least three months (of course, that's my spare time — so it's actually less than one hour per day) and consisted of more than 40 commits (after squashing all the fixups), whereas for the video I spent no more than a couple of hours.

I would appreciate if the curious could go and try it out, and let me know about any issues you should find: there are built packages for Linux (AppImage), macOS and Windows. I do also have an Ubuntu PPA where nightly images are built, but I'm not sure if I can recommend that one, since I've not been using it myself and have no idea whether those packages actually even start. But you are welcome to try :-)

Your feedback will help me do better, so please don't be shy!
