Join us Monday April 20 for the next installment of Internet of Things DC! We'll hear about the Intel Edison line of boards for building IoT applications, plus hear from three DC-area IoT startups who are bringing connected device products to market.

Topics and Speakers

Intel Edison for Building IoT Applications - Clarence Chio

Intel's release of the Edison has put more power into microcontroller development boards than ever before. How do the Intel boards compare with other boards on the market? What does it take to prototype an IoT project? You'll get an intro to all these and more. In addition, you'll get an intro to Chain-Check, one of the winning projects from Intel's IoT Hackathon in Mountain View, California last September, performing machine learning algorithms on the boards to predict when your bicycle will need a tuneup.

Clarence Chio is a software engineer who travels the country as an Intel community speaker. He has a BS and MS in Computer Science from Stanford, focusing in Information Analytics and Artificial Intelligence.
