July Meeting: Mind Blowing Internet of Things Projects with Cognitive Services

Join Cardinal Solutions and us on Tuesday, July 25, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. We live in an exciting time where more and more everyday items “things” are becoming smart! See Dan’s latest IoT projects leveraging cloud services for machine learning. Dan is using Bluetooth Beacons and Azure Machine Learning to predict the health of his pets! Dan was awarded Microsoft Most Valuable Professional MVP for his engagement in the community around IoT and .NET. Also, Microsoft Channel 9 has featured Dan’s IoT projects eight times! Dan will also demonstrate how he developed Amazon Alexa skills to control his very own IoT, home automation system that he built that is controlling more than 30 different things with five different types of microcontrollers. This talk led to a civic hacking event where Dan’s Charlotte IoT user group built devices and cloud services to help enable Nick, a quadriplegic friend of the group, to be more self-sufficient. Nick can now use speech commands to do things like control the temperature of his jacket connected to his wheelchair batteries and regulate his temperature when he is in bed. Dan has published the code for many of his projects to be open source, and his articles and videos have over a million views.
