IoT Data Collection with the TICK Stack:
According to the NCTA, there will be 50 billion IoT devices by the year 2020; in our homes, in our cars, in the spaces we live, in power plants, and in factories, outputting data from sensor readings and about their own operational state. In this talk, we’ll go over some of the requirements and architectures for IoT data and how it is collected, stored, and analyzed.

The talk will conclude with a working example of an IoT collection and analysis pipeline using (mostly) open source tools.

Can my computer be creative?:

What can we learn from creative algorithms?

A shallow dive through some of the deep NLP techniques we use at SecondBrain.ai and how these techniques can inspire creative problem solving across domains with a focus on time series data
Bring as many guests as you want.

About the Speaker:

Steven Wilkinson is the Founder & CEO of SecondBrain.ai // RAPGOD.ai

Steven taught his computer to rap. He started leading large scale data science projects in the insurance industry in 2002. Since 2014 he's been singularly focused on building and sharing creative ai to empower human expression.

Steven Wilkinson is the Founder and CEO of SecondBrain.ai. SecondBrain builds intelligent language tools to improve human communication by letting people focus on what they want to say rather than how they need to say it. SecondBrain built RAPGOD.ai, an intelligent lyric writing partner, designed to showcase their approach to ai-driven language synthesis. SecondBrain graduated from Techstars Music in 2018.

Communication is hard. Your secondbrain can help.
