Andy: NiFi, MiNiFi fundamentals (technical intro) - Intelligently Collecting Data from Edge to Core with Apache NiFi and MiNiFi

Discover Apache NiFi and MiNiFi from a core contributor. Whether you are new to the concept of data flow, or want details about how to route, transform, and process millions of events per second, this session will bring new information in an understandable format. Become familiar with the concepts and tools available to simplify, strengthen, and secure your flow. Learn about the new NiFi Registry to ease flow versioning, deployment, and promotion between environments. And get a first look at future enhancements and feature roadmaps for upcoming releases.

Tim: Ingesting Real-time Camera Images and Sensor Data with MiniFi and Apache NiFi.
I will run through a live example of using MiniFi to orchestrate, control and capture sensor data from a Raspberry Pi device. We will also ingest live webcam images. This device has a neural compute stick for enhanced VPU to run multiple deep learning algorithms on live captured webcam images. The MiniFi agent will then stream the data securely to an HDF 3.1 cluster running Apache NiFi 1.5. We will use Apache NiFi to parse, filter, join, transform, fork, analyze, query, sort, dissect and enrich the data using open source tools including Apache OpenNLP, Apache Tika and Apache MXNet.
