AI Speaks: Giving Large Language Models a Voice with Alexa

Presented by: Craig Walls
Time: Thursday 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM

Large Language Models (LLM) have been quite the buzz lately, offering one of the first tangible applications of artificial intelligence for the masses. Despite quirks and "hallucinations", LLMs show real promise of being a valuable component in the future of thinking machines. Meanwhile, for a few...

Building a Pan/Tilt/Zoom Live Streaming Camera Rig

Presented by: Todd Sharp
Time: Thursday 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

In this session, you'll see how I used an XBox controller, Arduino, a few servo motors and some HTML and JavaScript APIs to build the whole assembly. Even if you don't need your own PTZ rig, you'll still learn about some really cool JavaScript APIs like Web Serial, and the Gamepad API that you may...

Automating your smarthome without the cloud

Presented by: Seth Petry-Johnson
Time: Thursday 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM

Modern "smart" homes are dumb; your lights shouldn't stop working because your Internet is down, and your new doorbell shouldn't compromise your network security.

What's that smell? Monitoring air quality with Python, Raspberry Pi, and Redis

Presented by: Justin Castilla
Time: Friday 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

With a little wiring and a few lines of code, one can create your own hyper-local air sensor system to send alerts, activate smart-windows, and gather data. A sensor measures air particulate density and sends the values to a Raspberry Pi compute unit. The Raspberry Pi then sends the data along with...
