About this event

Join us virtually:

Hi everyone, we're excited to invite back Siamak Ashrafi as our speaker for our upcoming December meetup to round our 2020 year.

About the talk:

Please join us for a fun / festive GDG!

Let's end this crazy year with an entertaining & educational discussion about the power of today's smartphones. We will look at cool projects being done in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented reality (AR) with a review of the technology that makes them work.

ARCore is Real to the Core!

We start with what is Augmented Reality and why it's considered the next big thing in tech by exploring the history (Historic Tango Development), followed up by some mind-bending demos, and a reviewing the latest camera advancements (Samsung TOF [Time Of Flight] & iPhone LiDAR). After building a solid understanding of the what and why we look into the how of building a native Android AR app using Android Studio with Sceneform / Kotlin.

AI with Pixel 4’s “Neural Core” Edge TPU & TFLite

Wait ... What ??? Google used an Android phone to build a self-driving car! Yes, in this section we will review how Google used a Pixel phone to build a "smartphone car" that can drive completely autonomously by using its camera/sensors to detect and understand signals from the world around it (sense lanes, avoid collisions, and read road traffic signs).

We will review the core concepts that were instrumental in building this amazing demo.

This talk will be for anyone interested in AR/AI tech and not just mobile developers.
