    CORRECTION: I said in ad portion of the video that my data could be stolen on unprotected WiFi. This is true but in the example I gave with RUclip which uses HTTPS it’s already encrypted. Sorry. Didn’t know that’s how it worked. I will correct that in any future ads with Nord.

    Summary: I wanted to see if I could make an app that could decode baseball signs. Turns out we could and it was a great opportunity for me to learn more about Machine Learning and neural networks and artificial intelligence from my friend Jabril.

      Hello! I am starting to find my interest for engineering from you. I've been told I have an amazing work ethic and I was wondering what it takes to become an engineer. Obviously, you are very successful as one. Thanks! (If you see this)

                Ive played against coaches who attempt to steal signs. you can easily change your signs every inning with your players. It could be as easy as changing the queue signal. Sometimes they could say only pay attention to the sign if i touch my belt. Or they could make it so only the first sign matters. Or they could have conditions for signs like if your up by 5 runs or more ignore all steals signs.

                  Seems like a regular expression would decode that complicated sign, too.

                        When he has you try to guess which one it’s not that hard. I play high school baseball and knew that hat was the indicator and ear or nose was the sign then on the third that he says was a steal you can tell it’s the ear. After you’ve been playing the game for 13 years it gets easier to tell but no one listens cause often the people that figure it out are considered nerds and not really welcome on the field

                                                          Would this work if you used the signals like numbers and each move was a different number? Say left ear was one and nose was add and mouth was two and that would make 3 which would be steal.
