Emerging Tech Trends: The Internet of Things

Emerging Tech Trends: The Internet of Things

Last week we talked about trends we were seeing unfold with artificial intelligence. Although still in its very early infancy, AI is the trend to watch in 2017 as businesses look to incorporate the technology into their operations. This week we’re turning our attention to an emerging technology that’s a little further along on its growth curve, the Internet of Things (IoT). Numerous companies are applying the tech to real business problems and are already receiving returns on their investment. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)is leading the way, but enterprise and consumer IoT products are catching up. In this post we will focus on enterprise and consumer IoT use cases.

Lab Notes: Rekognition Part II

Lab Notes: Rekognition Part II

We recently tested Rekognition’s image detection capabilities with photos from a cell phone camera, so next we decided to automate the process with photos from a Raspberry Pi camera module. We used a motion sensor we had set up in one of our previous projects to begin work on our desired motion-activated identity verification system. With that in mind, we set the Raspberry Pi and camera up on a desk in one of our office rooms, pointed it at the door, and got to work.

Q&A: Key Insights From SXSW 2017

It’s been a little over a week since the Mission Data team returned from SXSW, the annual mecca for innovators in tech, music, and film. We met with clients and partners, squeezed into capacity-crowd discussions, and drank spicy cocktails.

While some members of our team were attending the conference for the first time, it wasn’t the first rodeo for team members Cindi Ramm and Todd Budnikas. We asked them to fill us in on all the big ideas worth writing home about.

Impressions From My First SXSW: AI, AR/VR and Long Lines Everywhere

This was my first trip to the vaunted SXSW festival in Austin and my first impression was, omg, there are a ton of people here! And everyone spends most of their day in some sort of line. A line for the taxi stand, a line for the sessions, a line for drinks, for food, well, you get the idea.
