Recap of IoT RetailRecap of the First Intel IoT Retail Workshop

Intel® Black Belt Software Developer Abhishek Nandy recaps the first IoT Retail Workshop held in Bangalore in early June. Raghavendra Ural led the event with support from Abhishek and Intel Software Innovators Sourav Lahoti and Pooja Baraskar. Representatives from several start-up companies attended the workshop, which highlighted how to use Intel® architecture in IoT retail.

Car Racing SimExperience Car Racing from the Safety of a Simulator

After getting a client's request to create a car-racing game with a motion simulator, Intel® Software Innovator Firmansyah Saftari had to do some research and learn new skills. He started with a 3-D printed scaled model prototype, designed and configured everything, and then built it from scratch in two months. The final result is a virtual reality motion simulator that looks very fun to test drive.

Deep LearningThe Anatomy of Deep Learning Frameworks

Intel Software Innovator Gokula Krishnan Santhanam explains everything you want to know about deep learning frameworks. A part of the Indian Deep Learning Initiative Webinar Series, this session walks you through various frameworks, explaining how to create your own.

AI to Control WeedsUse AI to Control Weeds

Ngesa Marvin’s project collects images from the Google Earth* mapping service and wind data, and then uses AI to predict the location of water hyacinth, an invasive weed. He plans to use the technology to eradicate the weed from Kenya’s Lake Victoria—one of many strategies he has for helping his community and its environment.
