#Event – Let’s code a drone ✈ to follow faces 😀 with #AzureIoT (x2!) Supporting the #GlobalAI Bootcamp Singapore and Germany!

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

Let’s start the 2021 with some drones events supporting 2 Global AI Bootcamp events

Please each event location for specific details on time and streaming options.

Let’s code a drone to follow faces syncing everything with Azure IoT

You can control a drone using 20 lines of code. That’s the easy part. However, adding extra features like face or object detection and program the drone to follow and object or a face requires … another 20 lines of code! During this workshop we will review how to connect to a drone, how to send and receive commands from the drone, how to read the camera video feed and how to apply AI on top of the camera feed to recognize objects or faces. We will use a simple house drone ($100) and Python. And, when we review some enterprise scenarios, we will use Azure IoT to sync the drone information in IoT mode. Let’s build this!

For this session I’ll explain how to create a SDK from zero to control a DJI Tello drone, and the last past will include some examples on how to connect the drone reported information to Azure IoT.

And this is probably the last one my Microsoft MVP room-office (see below), there are some changes in the near future, so let’ rock these 2 sessions !

Happy coding!

Buy Me A Coffee

Buenas!

Todo empezó cuando al terminar de correr veo que #LicorcaConf era trending topic en España. Doy un par de likes en Twitter y 10 minutos después estoy en una sala virtual pasando un rato genial con los asistentes del evento. Obviamente, esto dio pie para que un par de días después nos juntáramos nuevamente para hablar de su experiencia.

1 hora después repasamos el escenario del 2020 al momento de adaptarse a la organización de eventos, lo grandes que son los patrocinadores, el compromiso de los ponentes, la agenda y mucho más!

Otro gran episodio con nuevos amigos!

#Event – Global AI Bootcamp Toronto on Dec 12 🤖🤖🤖 @GlobAICommunity

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

This started to be my annual tradition: Global AI Bootcamp is the last event of the year!
And this year, we had a set of amazing session planned with the following topics:

  • Introduction to AI and Cognitive Services for Developers and Information Workers
  • Understanding Autonomous systems, Machine Teaching and Bonsai Platform
  • Knowledge Mining and MLOps

We have speakers from all around Canada and a special guest from the South !

As usual the event is free, no food this year (sorry!), however you can spend a nice Saturday morning learning about AI in your chosen location !

Registration: https://www.meetup.com/metrotorontoug/events/267883977/

Full details here 👇👇👇

Intro and Welcome

Session. 10:00 – 10:10

Kick off of the amazing event

Introduction to AI and Cognitive Services for Developers and Information Workers

Session 1. 10:10 – 11:00

Speaker: Prashant G Bhoyar | Microsoft AI MVP

“Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are the new buzzwords in the industry. Microsoft’s vision is to make AI accessible to every enterprise, data scientist, developer, information worker, consumer and device everywhere in the world. AI has a big role to play in the enterprise space. The field of AI is progressing at a rapid pace. Without understanding the concepts behind these advanced technologies, developers and administrators will struggle to evaluate the potential impact of new tools and solutions. In this session, we will break down the concepts behind existing technologies, outline various tools available today, and discuss the direction of AI and ML for Developers. We will cover how developers, Power Users, and Information workers can take advantage of Microsoft’s AI and Cognitive Services offerings to build real-life enterprise solutions.

You will learn:
1) Overview of Microsoft AI Platform
2) What are the cognitive services?
3) What tools are available today?
4) How to use Cognitive Services to implement real-life business solutions?

Understanding Autonomous systems, Machine Teaching and Bonsai Platform

Session 2. 11:10 – 12:00

Speaker: Ivana Tilca | Microsoft AI MVP | 3XM Group Quality Manager

Innovations in AI are creating the next wave of disruption in industrial technology. Autonomous machines are more than an expansion of automated systems: They are an entirely new way to amplify human expertise. In this session you will take a look to how to speed the creation of AI-powered automation to improve production efficiency and reduce downtime – without requiring data scientists with Project Bonsai. We will also take a look at AirSim, a simulator for drones, cars and more, built on Unreal Engine. AirSim a platform for AI research to experiment with deep learning, computer vision and reinforcement learning algorithms for autonomous vehicles.

Knowledge Mining and MLOps

Session 3. 12:10 – 13:00

Speakers: Amol Mane, Meghana Madhusudhan and Niloofar Nayebi

Knowledge mining is an emerging discipline in artificial intelligence (AI) that uses a combination of intelligent services to quickly learn from vast amounts of information. It allows organizations to deeply understand and easily explore information, uncover hidden insights, and find relationships and patterns at scale. This platform allows to use machine learning model to address any specific business need. The life cycle of the models can be managed using MLOps. MLOps, or DevOps for machine learning, enables data science and IT teams to collaborate and increase the pace of model development and deployment via monitoring, validation, and governance of machine learning models. These two solutions combined can create a strong platform to extract, enrich, and expose any hidden data within any organization.
In this session you are going to learn about three main steps in KM platform:

– Ingestion

– Enrichment

– Exploration

And three main pipelines in MLOps:

– Continues Integration

– Continues Delivery

– Deployment

Let’s meet there !

Happy coding!

A very long list here…

Personal Note

It was a fast session, with over +100 viewers, and … so many topics to talk ! I prepared a full MLOps pipeline to show, I was planning to code from scratch a Jupyter Notebook, and more … we didn’t have time. This comment resume it all:
