South Florida Code Camp – Virtual Reality and IoT

Featured

March 2nd 2019, I will be presenting Virtual Reality and IoT – Interacting with the changing world at the South Florida Code Camp in Davie, FL. You can register here – and its FREE. Here is the synopsis of the presentation:

Abstract

Whether it’s called mixed reality, augmented reality, or virtual reality; changing the perceived reality of the user is here. This presentation will look at how to create IoT devices, pipe the data created by them through the cloud, and use that data to drive a virtual or mixed reality experience. Creating applications that interact with the data created by the user’s environment should become straightforward after this introduction.

 

 

CodeMash 2019 – Alternative Device Interfaces and Machine Learning

I was once again accepted to speak at CodeMash. This year I will be presenting – Alternative Device Interfaces and Machine Learning. If you would like to purchase tickets, they are for sell. Here is what is going to be covered:

Alternative Device Interfaces and Machine Learning

In this presentation, we will look at the how users interface with machines without the use of touch. These different types of interaction have their benefits and pitfalls. To showcase the power of these user interactions we will explore: Voice commands with mobile applications, Speech Recognition, and Computer Vision. After this presentation, attendees will have the knowledge to create applications that can utilize voice, video, and machine learning.

September 20th at Cobb Center in Detroit I will be presenting:

Alternative Device Interfaces and Machine Learning

Abstract

In this presentation, we will look at the how users interface with machines without the use of touch. These different types of interaction have their benefits and pitfalls. To showcase the power of these user interactions we will explore: Voice commands with mobile applications, Speech Recognition, and Computer Vision. After this presentation, attendees will have the knowledge to create applications that can utilize voice, video, and machine learning.

Description

Users use voice (Alexa, Cortana, Google Now) or video as a mode of interaction with applications. More than a fad, this is a natural interface for users and is becoming more and more common with the ever-decreasing size of hardware.

Different types of interaction have their benefits and pitfalls. To showcase the power of these user interactions we will explore: Voice commands with two app types: UWP and Xamarin Forms (iOS and Android). Speech Recognition with Cognitive Services: Verifying the speaker with Speaker Recognition API. Computer Vision with Cognitive Services: Verifying a user with Face API.

By utilizing UWP, Xamarin, and Cognitive services; a device with the ultimate in customization for user interactions will be created. Come and see how!
