  • Memories With Maya

    • CreateSpace(2013), Penguin (2015)
    • February 28, 2013
    Authors: Clyde DeSouza

    "EMOTIONS ARE LIKE A VIRUS, a common cold...disrupting the flow of logic in the mind." Daniel reminds himself.

    Dan's work involves creating commercially viable AR solutions. The recession and an explosion of data-cops is drying out his streams of income.
    He turns to close friend, Krish, a researcher in Artificial Intelligence, in the hope that they can come up with ideas for the Military and the Entertainment market.

    Krish gets a job at the prestigious A.I.R.I. Using AIRI's lab, Krish and Dan, create an advanced visor with Augmented Intelligence built in.
    They dub it "Wizer".
    A Board member at AIRI sees potential in the Wizer other than what Dan and Krish have in mind.

    At a test in a nightclub, things go wrong...

    Can the Wizer "insure memories" and be a catalyst to accelerate the journey toward eventual Singularity?

    "He pulls an epic amount of research into his storyline on augmented eyeglass technology and visorwear. --:: Ann Reynolds, The Huffington Post.

    In Memories with Maya, human sexuality gets an upgrade... --:: i09.com

    "If your body died, but you had a mindclone, you would not feel that you personally died..." I think it would be very cool to combine this concept with the advanced augmented-reality technology described in the novel. --:: Giulio Prisco, Futurist, Transhumanism editor, Kurzweil AI

    AI and Augmented Reality add to the transhuman mix. The concept is fascinating and imminently credible.--:: John Havens, Mashable.

    :: Editorial Reviews ::

    "Though we're still figuring out what "thinking in 3D" really means in terms of artistic practice, Dsouza is asking many of the right questions about this essential issue." - Ray Zone 3D, Film Historian, Author.

    "Got it, Agree with it". - Demetri Portelli - Stereographer - "HUGO" / "47 RONIN."

    "There have been many books written about stereoscopic 3D, far more than most people realize. Yet, very few, less than a half dozen, would I recommend as "must reads" for professionals...
    This book is absolutely among the top half dozen that do qualify. The points discussed in it may well determine the future of the industry. Anyone who wants to call themselves a stereographer must read this." -- John Rupkalvis, Stereoscope. (Terminator 3D @Universal Studios)

    "It is not so much a "How To" tech manual, as it is a guide to help the reader ponder the aesthetics of 3D in order to better understand how to effectively use it." -- James Mathers, Digital Cinema Society

    "Desouza approaches the subject with a tone and gravity that allows those with an understanding of filmmaking or indeed stereo, easy access, bypassing the mathematical and scientific approach in favour of a more emotional and artistic angle." -- Marcus Alexander, Stereographer, 3D Producer ( Wrath of the Titans, Seventh Son)

Clyde DeSouza's Projects

  • User Experience Room

    • July 2008 to December 2010
    Team Members: Clyde DeSouza

    Experiential Marketing is the art of creating an experience where the hoped-for result is an emotional connection to a person, brand, product or idea. It is a form of marketing or advertising based on the principle of marketing a product or brand through an experience rather than the placement of advertisements.

    While an experience can be had in many ways, for example a wine tasting to promote a new brand of wine or champagne, to a virtual golf simulator to promote the sport, in the year 2009 and entering 2010, what would be considered ground breaking or a next-gen way of providing an experience to an audience or consumer? This was the challenge Real Vision was faced with when appointed to brain storm and create a solution for the sales center for an ambitious "city" township coming being constructed...
