TinyML aka Tiny Machine Learning has been proven as a revolution for this gigantic world. With the help of this technology, you can now run ML tasks on small and cheap devices consuming under 1mW. The support from Google's TensorFlow Lite Micro Team, Arm, Arduino even from startups such as Edge Impulse has been proven efficient to run ML, Computer Vision and Deep Learning tasks on these boards. In this session, I would share brighter info on what's TinyML and why, and how this is truly a revolution!
When collecting analytics to feed data pipelines that enable monitoring and alerts for your digital property, you are exposed to the risk of transmitting and storing sensitive data. Even more, if a user inputs data into a form, it's hard to detect if they submitted sensitive data.
Detecting and masking sensitive data before they leave a digital property minimizes the risk of data leaking and protects the identity of your customers.
During this talk, we will discuss how to implement a solution that leverages machine learning to protect customers' Personally Identifiable Information (PII) on Android/iOS (~97% detection accuracy). After an architecture overview and a discussion on the alternatives evaluated, we will dig into the platform-specific implementations to then discuss the drawbacks and opportunities to expand the solution.

During the pandemic we've all been feeling pretty isolated, and we've all been doing our best and wearing masks. But what if everyone wearing masks cuts off your ability to converse?
My dear mum relies on lip reading and clear sounds to understand what people are saying. But I, of course want her to stay safe. So the thought occurred. Can I make a live captioning display fit into a mask so that she can read what I'm saying as I'm speaking?
Live captioning of speech to text has so many useful applications and Cognitive Services makes it fast and easy to build captioning into your applications. Together with Ably Realtime, it is possible to make wearable devices which can display what you’re saying, in real time. Wearable Live Captions!
The blockchain space has been vastly dominated by other tools and technology, Flutter is still in its prime, and Flutter developers need to know how they can tap into this space using the tool they have. Hence, we can have more blockchain products and tools built with Flutter.
As web performance and user experience across both mobile and desktop devices continue to increase in importance, so do progressive web apps (PWAs). PWAs are becoming more popular because they have lots of enhancements that help your application perform better and they make apps accessible even to users with limited internet connection. In this talk, you are going to learn the advantages of using PWAs and how to turn your web application into a PWA.
