The title is not a typo nor dyslexia. I will really talk about Lisp. In a previous post I explained my will to implement the dining of the philosophers with Linda in GO. The ultimate goal is to use a distributed and abstract language to go straight from the design to the runtime of an application. The problem I’ve faced I want to use a GO implementation for the Linda language because a go binary is a container by itself.

It’s been a while since I last posted something. I will fill the gap with a quick post about rekognition. rekognition is a service from AWS that is described as: Deep learning-based image recognition Search, verify, and organize millions of images In this light post, I will present a simple method to grab a picture from my webcam, send it to rekognition and display the result. The part of the result I will focus on is the emotion.
