We regret to inform everyone that our previously scheduled IoT Hackday Project Track has been canceled. We will however continue as planned with the Learning Track. Please join the Zoom meeting on Oct 24th at 10:30 to participate in a 2-series workshop hands-on workshop.
-- Learning Track --
This track is for those who are new to hacking, or don’t have a project or are not in a team.
Because of COVID-19, it is not hard to imagine that some people will prefer wearing masks for the foreseeable future to protect themselves and others. Additionally, local governments are mandating mask wearing to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
In a 2-series workshop, we will explore TensorFlow and how it can be used to detect whether one is wearing a face mask.
We will set up TensorFlow and use a pre-trained model for image classification.
We will train our model to detect whether a person is wearing a face mask.
The instructor is Chris Black. Learn more about Chris at https://www.blackcj.com/blog/about/
For this exercise, you need the following tools:
* A laptop with a webcam
* A face mask that covers your nose and mouth
--Today - Sat, Oct 24th--
*Submit your project at https://iothackday2020.devpost.com/. See examples of 2019 IoT Hack Day project submissions at https://iothackday2019.devpost.com/project-gallery
*Refine your project and form/recruit your team. Or request to join a team.
*Sign-up for the Learning Track here https://iothackday2020.devpost.com/
*Take several masked & maskless photos for the pre-trained model. We will share a link to submit photos that the instructor will use to pre-train the model.
