Flow-based programming and Artificial Intelligence 101

Mon, 18 Jun 2018 18:30 to 08:30

Add flow-based programming and artificial intelligence APIs to your skillset

In this workshop we'll be looking at building up two new skillsets. First, we'll get ourselves acquainted with the concepts and applications of flow-based programming (a way to create programs visually instead of writing code) using the open-source IDE Node-RED.

We'll cover
  • What is Node-RED?
  • What are nodes/flows?
And then we'll some simple applications.
  • A basic web server
  • A photo booth
Following that, we'll put together some additional flows to interact with artificial intelligence APIs.
  • Speech to text + Natural Language Understanding
  • Visual Recognition + Face analysis
