#EDIT19 Ljubljana, July 15 – 26 2019: #GoogleCloudPlatform #GoogleHome

Let’s touch the clouds

Nowadays personal assistants are no longer considered strange novelties. Technological advancement has allowed us to start enjoying these commodities in the comfort of our homes. They wake us up in the morning. They keep us informed about traffic conditions and can tell a rather unfortunate joke. In the evening, they play us our favorite music and switch off the lights.

But how many of us actually know what it takes to enable all of these possibilities? And how large and complex the supervising cloud is? We will address these and similar questions at EDIT Summer School in Ljubljana this year. You will also get insight into the operating principles of various cloud services.

Using Google Assistant, we will implement our own notification portal while familiarizing with and using various Google Cloud services. The resulting application will notify its users about chosen topics and will be manageable through the use of the Google Home technology.

If you wish to touch a cloud too, hurry up and apply for the EDIT Summer School. Creative fun is guaranteed! 😉

#EDIT19 Maribor, 15 – 26 July 2019: #data visualization #software interfaces #slot machines

Upgrading devices – Making old tech Smart

Older electromagnetic devices that still serve their original purpose perfectly well are often retired because of a single missing feature. As we become more dependent on collecting and processing data, we are gradually eliminating devices that are not capable of this. However, if we could use software to upgrade these devices and enable them to keep pace with progress, as well as integrate them with data visualization and omnipresent artificial intelligence, we could continue to use them.

This year, we’ll tackle this issue at EDIT summer school by working on legacy slot machines that are still used by numerous casinos. We will search for a solution that can be utilized on other electromagnetic devices as well.

During EDIT, we will design and implement a slot machine upgrade that makes regular slot machines smart. You will learn about the fundamentals of slot machines, data visualization, and software interface design. As we work, we will rely on our critical thinking skills and a number of technologies: REST/Websocket, user application technology, and data visualization.

Sign up for EDIT and accept this challenge!
