Microsoft and Team Gleason, the nonprofit organization founded by NFL player Steve Gleason, today launched Project Insight to create an open dataset of facial imagery of people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The organizations hope to foster innovation in computer vision and broaden the potential for connectivity and communication for people with accessibility challenges.

Microsoft and Team Gleason assert that existing machine learning datasets don’t represent the diversity of people with ALS, a condition that affects as many as 30,000 people in the U.S. This results in issues accurately identifying people, due to breathing masks, droopy eyelids, watery eyes, and dry eyes from medications that control excessive saliva.

Project Insight will investigate how to use data and AI with the front-facing camera already present in many assistive devices to predict where a person is looking on a screen. Team Gleason will work with Microsoft’s Health Next Enable team to gather

More and more development teams are turning toward an Agile approach and for a good reason. Recent studies suggest that organizations adopting an Agile approach experienced a 71% increase in project cost reduction. Development teams are finding they can speed up software development without sacrificing quality.

The Agile approach is thought to have started in the mid-90s. Software developers mixed old ideas with inventive, new ideas and combined them into new methodologies. They found the new methodologies to be impactful, so they created a framework to spread their ideas to other teams. Their frameworks—Scrum, Extreme Programming, Feature-Driven Development (FDD), and the Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM)—began to appear. From there, teams all over started to tweak this approach to fit their unique needs.

The Agile approach can help software development teams embrace the power of collaboration and self-organization. In this post, we’ll explain how it can benefit distributed teams, in
