may 20 meeting! sensors give users super powers!
For our Monday, May 20th meet-up, Mike Massie will give an intro to Ambient Intelligence and discuss how sensors can give the user super powers.
As shrinking technology allows us to cheaply put hardware eyes, ears and touch sensors on everyday things, the data now readily available can offer a magnitude of information without the user even lifting a finger.
Some are calling 2013 the “Year of the sensor”, and it is giving passage to the Internet of Things and Big Data; aside from buzz terms we’ll talk about how these tools will offer the ability for more interactions to get out of the way.
A social hour will take place at Burnhearts (2599 S Logan Ave, in Bay View) immediately after the event. Burnhearts is right down the street from Makerspace!
