Presentations and Workshops

Air Force: Introduction and Background

Monika Eckold
Bob Lee
Matt Middendorf
Luis Pineiro

Air Force members will give the welcome and introduction with background on major issues facing today's Air Force, problems that the Air Force Research Laboratory works on every day and where the Air Force and American people could benefit from your help!

OpenBCI: An Open-Source Brain-Computer Interface

Chip Audette
Conor Russomanno
Joel Murphy

OpenBCI co-founders, Joel Murphy and Conor Russomanno, will be discussing the emergence of the real-world brain-computer interface (BCI). The presentation will address the state of the art with regards to low-cost electroencephalography (EEG) technology, current trends in BCI being transplanted from the laboratory and into the everyday life, and how the open-source community has a huge role to play in accelerating innovation in the field of brain science. The brain is one of the final frontiers of human discovery and expansion, and more people should be a part of the conversation. The presentation will be followed by a hands-on workshop on how to get up and running with the OpenBCI hardware. Sensor Data Visualization

Alex Vados

We'll stream sensor data from a Rasberry Pi or Arduino Yun to Plotly, then download and analyze that data in an interesting way using another Plotly API (MATLAB, Python, R, Julia, etc). For examples of Plotly sensor and telemetry projects, see Plotly's workshop page.

Github: The Github Flow

Ben Balter

In this session we will introduce the concepts behind the workflow that GitHub uses in order to ship high-quality software on a continuous basis using, git and various other open source tools. We'll talk about the philosophy behind the workflow and see simple examples of how you too can integrate GitHub Flow into your own process workflows to help you collaborate and ship software faster with greater confidence.

RedWall: Mobile device sensors - data mining and visualization implications

John Rosenstengel

Your mobile phone already knows where it is, how you're holding it, what you're saying to it and how fast you're moving. Temperature, humidity, and barometer sensors provide information about your environment. Future smart watch processors will add other sensors able to capture physiological signals like heart rate, temperature, perspiration, and skin conductance, making for a powerful technology to track your well-being. Now imagine storingmonths worth of this data on your phone. We could utilize data mining and visualization techniques for a seemingly endless number of useful applications. For example, we could track disease and health patterns more accurately across countries and continents. Air and water quality sensors could be used to give governments and health officials the opportunity to measure smog and dangerous chemicals across cities. We could take the collective stress pulse of the nation. Our presentation will discuss these topics as well as some of the security implications.

Tenet3: Conceptualizing Complexity with D3.js

Michael Clark
Jeff Scott

In this age, the complexity of our cyber-physical-social networks can overwhelm us. So we gather data to try to understand our world. There is no lack of interesting data available but we struggle making sense of it all. In this session, researchers at Tenet3 will help you understand your data using the open source JavaScript library D3.js. We'll describe our mission, then the philosophy behind D3, then we'll describe some of the core concepts D3 uses to produce elegant, interactive visualizations of your data. We'll end by walking through several visualizations we've found useful in our own work.

Strap: Why Analytics Matter

Patrick Henshaw
Marcelle Bonterre

We’ll discuss why Big Data combined with Analytics actually matters in the world we live in today. We’ll preview some of the key players and producers of big data in the world today as well as dive into how and what big data can be used for. This will then tie in to how organizations today use predictive analytics to make more informed decisions about the way that their application or businesses as a whole optimize and operate. We will close out the talk with a quick demo that will assist with the wearable hack challenge on how to use Strap Kit to build your next wearable application with the power of Strap Metrics built in.

Building Your First App: Introduction to MongoDB

John Santiago

Learn some of the basic things you need to know to get started building a MongoDB-based application.
