Intel/Microsoft Hackathon @ IoT Solutions World Congress Barcelona
The Intel / Microsoft IoT Solutions World Congress Hackathon in Barcelona, Spain was my first hackathon, and ultimately lead to my joining the Intel Software Innovators Program.
At the hackathon we formed a team that called Random. We chose to build a computer vision project with the use case of monitoring dependant family members using facial recognition. Our use case was being able to detect if a dependent family member had left the building, and to raise an alarm to alert family members or carers of this fact.
Our project included a deep learning neural network on an Intel Joule and a smart home environment using Intel technologies such as the Intel NUC, and our team won the Intel Experts Award.
Joining The Intel Software Innovators Program
I had always been interested in joining the Intel® Software Innovators since I first began experimenting with the Internet of Things and the Intel® Galileo that I was awarded by Microsoft for my project idea for the Windows Development .
In January 2017, I was approached by Francesco Baldassarri, EMEA Manager of the Intel® Innovators Program and engaged with Intel® as an Intel® Software Innovator.
Within the program I work on projects that combine Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things to create intelligent smart environments.
Intel IoT Solutions Hackathon Furth Germany
In March 2017 I supported my first Intel® event as an Intel Software Innovator where I was part of the support team that assisted developers from around the globe in the Intel® IoT Solutions Hackathon in Furth Germany.
Over 50 people attended the event and some amazing projects were created using Intel® hardware and software.
It was an amazing experience to represent Intel and assist the teams with their projects. Intel staff were very welcoming and made my first event as an Intel Software Innovator one that I will never forget.
I was proud to demonstrate my Artificially Intelligent CCTV Network, TassAI, at the Intel Booth at Codemotion in May 2017 as part of my role as an Intel Software Innovator.
Codemotion is the biggest tech conference in Italy and one of the most important in Europe, with a network of more than 30k developers.
The event was the first real world demonstration of TassAI and I was able to identify areas that required improvement. During the event I demonstrated the project to many people and it was really amazing to see the interest in the project.
Following the success of debuing the A.I. E-commerce Store at Collision Conference in New Orleans in 2017, I was proud to take the Artificial Intelligence Assistants A.I E-Commerce Store and TassAI project to WebSummit 2017 in Lisbon.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in the Internet of Things
In 2017 I was a participant in the Intel IoT Dev Fest. My talk looked at the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in the Internet of Things. The goal was to show how intelligent cloud services are currently being used in the Internet of Things to analyse data and maximise the performance and efficiency of IoT networks, and also how A.I and Machine Learning can be used on devices and on the edge to create intelligent devices and networks that do not require cloud services.
In addition to data analysis, the talk covered the use of natural linguistics being used to manage and monitor IoT networks, and also how computer vision and facial recognition can help to massively enhance the Internet of Things, increasing automation and creating more efficient smart environments.
Evolution of IoT through A.I. & Biohacking GOA National Institute of Technology
In March 2017, I spoke as an Intel Software Innovator at the Internet of Things (IoT) for Home Automation Workshop held at the National Institute of Technology in GOA.
My talk was focused on the evolution of the Internet of Things through Artificial Intelligence & Biohacking.
