Sean Ewington
Technical Writer CodeProject
Canada Canada
Sean Ewington is the Content Manager for CodeProject.

His background in programming is primarily C++ and HTML, but has experience in other, "unsavoury" languages.

He loves movies, and likes to say inconceivable often, even if it does not mean what he thinks it means.
David Cunningham
Founder CodeProject
Canada Canada
I started photo-etching circuit boards when I was 8, and at 11 was haunting the halls and computer science labs at the local university so much that I was invited by Professor Wayne Ayott to audit his software and hardware design courses.

Over my career I have used C# , C++, Win32, MFC, Assembler, Basic, and Clipper, on applications for the military, commercial ventures, medical research and the labour movement. Through my medical informatics work I came to know what real-time and mission-critical really mean… just try being part of the critical path when a woman goes into labor.

I have been honoured to receive many business, industry and leadership awards including being named an Exceptional Young Entrepreneur (Profit Magazine) and to the list of Who's Who in Canadian Business. The companies I started have been recognized as the Fastest Growing companies in Canada (Profit Magazine), as the Fastest Growing North American Technology Companies (Deloitte & Touché) and named as a Top 100 Innovator and Leader by SDTimes 6 years in a row.

Here's my professional profile on LinkedIn:

In 2007 Microsoft acquired technology from one of my companies, Dundas Data Visualization, for inclusion in SQL Server.

I live in Toronto and enjoy photography, scuba, food, and motorcycle riding.
Chris Maunder
Founder CodeProject
Canada Canada
Current passion project: CodeProject SenseAI. Please join in!

Chris is the Co-founder of the popular code-sharing site, the digital advertising agency and the content marketing agency ContentLab.IO.

He's been programming way too long and has been, in various guides, an astrophysicist, mechanic, mathematician, physicist, breeder of carnivorous plants, hydrologist, geomorphologist, defence intelligence researcher and then, when all that got a bit rough on the nerves, a serial entrepreneur.

Chris has programmed everything from FORTRAN on a CRAY to Python on a Pi, but generally leans on TypeScript, C#, and SQL for the front, middle and back bits of his applications. His current focus is on ensuring developers know enough about Artificial Intelligence to be dangerous.

This is way overdue, but we've released CodeProject SenseAI Server.[^], Beta 1. Beta 2 is coming any day now, depending on Matthew's swearing and the amount of sleep I can get.

To back up a little:

At CodeProject we've been forever fascinated with the possibilities of AI. Dave has forever been the type of guy who will build, regardless of the technical obstacles, solutions that will make his life better. Matthew is up for anything as long as it involves learning and sharp, bleeding edges, and I'm addicted to data processing. Ryan (who is now Senior Content Strategist at ContentLab has a rich history in AI development and spent forever trying to get us up to speed with the latest trends and technologies in AI.

And we all found it insanely frustrating that at every step it was a mess of Terminal windows, hunting installers, reading the fine print, tweaking config files, ensuring you had just the right version of Python, except when you needed the other version of Python, and don't even get me started on library dependencies.

It often ended poorly so and we decided enough was enough and we would commit to creating a system that would allow the average developer - the one who's way too busy, with way too many things on their plate - to explore and have fun with and integrate AI into their programming life with zero fuss.

et voila.

SenseAI is a standalone server you can install anywhere. (caveat: "anywhere" currently means a Windows machine, but with Release 1, due in a week or so, it'll be Windows, Linux, macOS, and anything that will take our Docker image). The code is all there for you to grab and dig through, and will build and run under VS Code.

How it works is you install it on your machine, start it up, and you have a simple little AI server that will happily run analysis on any image you throw at it using a simple REST API. We've included a very simple HTML page that demo's the current features. Face detection and recognition, scene detection and object detection are the current capabilities, but we'll be continually adding new features as we find them.

And "find" is the important point here. Our goal isn't to write AI modules from scratch. There are way too many people far smarter than us who are very good at that stuff. Our goal is to aggregate the best open source projects, wrap it all up in a safe, tested, consistent, not-breaking-because-you-forgot-an-environment-variable, documented and supported service with a single API.

The architecture is simple: There's a front end server that handles the API calls. This is a lightweight .NET app. The backend is made up of a collection of independent modules. These modules typically handle one AI task (eg object detection, sound analysis, etc). When you send a request to the server that request finds it way to the correct module, which processes it, and sends the result back to the server, and from there back to the caller of the Server's API. Each module is totally independent, can be written in any language that can run in the environment, and can use it's own AI models. As the system evolves and we come across modules that are better, faster, smaller, or more accurate, we'll swap out the previous modules for the updated modules with no change in the API. You'll just see a little notification on your server's dashboard letting you know there is new goodness to be downloaded.

We'll be publishing examples of modules we've built and added to demonstrate how we'll be including new modules, and we'll also be providing a developer SDK in multiple languages to make communication between the included modules and the server simple.

We're starting small, we have lots of rough edges, but we're committed to building something awesome here. We hope you can join us and help out.
