Title: Step-up your Firebase App game

Did you know that you can easily add machine learning to your app to do object detection, sentiment analysis, speech recognition, and computer vision, all of this without overcharging your main app? Yes, you can super charge your Firebase Apps with Machine Learning Skills using Cloud Functions.

During this talk we will explore together how you can best use Cloud Functions to access Firebase events and do some magic around that. live-code an interactive app using several of the ML APIs.


Oussama is Google Student Ambassador Lauréat, Front End mentor, currently working as a Software Engineer at Klarna. If he's not coding or giving a Talk. Then you'll find him skydiving.

19:00 - 20:00 Machine Learning Workshop by Débora Myoupo
Title: Who's that mannequin?

Mannequin is a machine learning workshop to detect and classify mannequins poses.

A recurring challenge at Looklet is correctly detecting which, out of a range of different mannequins and poses, is being photographed.
In this workshop, we will explore some of the most commonly used Machine Learning algorithms and their application for classification of objects.
Illustrated by concrete example, we'll see how the choice of data and method impacts the decision results.

Debora Myoupo is an experienced Research Engineer at Looklet, with over eight years experience with image-processing, machine learning and computer vision technologies. She has collaborated with companies such as Matrox, Sagem and a selection of startups.
At Looklet, through experimentation, evaluation, and combination of the various fields, she puts the theoretical solutions to the ultimate test by applying them to Looklets real-world challenges.
