    ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 

    • Share your thoughts on the following questions:
      • Which topic/s in class made an impact to you? Why? Vectors (?) since they’re a pretty huge deal with 130 and you’d fail if you forget anything about it. :))
      • If you can summarize this course in one word or sentence, what would it be? Fun 🙂 I enjoyed learning about it since it was taught so well in class. I know it’s hard but I guess the class made it worth it.
      • What would be your parting message to the class? YAY THANK YOU. Seniors always told me this would be a tough class and us enjoying it already says a lot about how the class was handled. 🙂 Thank you po for making me meet new friends and letting me communicate with people even though I’m terribly bad at it. Definitely a highlight for this semester. ❤

    Fourier Transform in Photoshop 

    Usually referred to as “Fourier Filters”, Fast Fourier Transforms or FFT is a plugin used in Photoshop to remove paper texture when editing a scanned photo. It helps lessen the texture of repeating patterns in a photo without losing the details unlike other tools used in Photoshop.

    You basically split an image into frequency components. The filter can remove the “peaks” based on the frequencies that make up repeating patterns. Then an inverse FFt is done to transform the image back.

    Symmetry and Sunflowers 

    Sunflowers are my favorite flowers ever since I was a little. I just always thought that they were the advanced versions of daisies I drew way back in elementary school (huhu tanda ko na.) 

    Anyway, who knew I could apply this week’s topic to one of the most popular flowers in UP?


    Sunflowers boast radial symmetry and a numerical symmetry known as a Fibonacci sequence. If you guys have the time (and energy), count the seed spirals in a sunflower and the amount of spirals add up to a Fibonacci number. Yay! :))

    Vectors in Speech Recognition 

    Feature vectors are used in speech recognition to identify phonetic sounds between each other. Usually, each sound clip is divided into several short snippets. Features are then extracted from each of these snippets, which are then used to identify between different sounds between the audio snippets.
