  • I See What You Mean - two ways vision helps us understand speech

    Gordon McLeod & Ben Hopson of Cirrus Logic (www.cirrus.com)

    Speaker identification technology is increasingly common on mobile devices. The virtual assistant becomes more compelling when it knows who you are and, in some use cases, voice ID is a more convenient way of unlocking than by face or fingerprint.
    Incoming audio is first processed into features which are stable, distinctive and hard to imitate – ideally capturing unique aspects of the speaker's vocal tract. Several different visualisations are required to select features and confirm that feature extraction works consistently over a large number of speakers and environmental conditions.
    Features are then fed into a classifier which compares the extracted features to enrolled users to determine if the audio is recognised. Training, tuning testing and debugging this system brings with it many of the challenges of machine learning. There is a need to visualise data...

  • Wisdom and wealth, are bitcoin newcomers doomed? - Max Sherwood - www.linkedin.com After mining bitcoin in 2013 and witnessing the technology firsthand, Max began investing and proceeded to learn many lessons the hard way. Five years later, his failures led to eventual success, but he wondered what it would take for new crypto investors to avoid these painful experiences and make the right moves from Day 1. In 2019, Max launched an online course for beginner bitcoin investors, pointing to the lack of high-quality investment information as a major hurdle to bitcoin’s adoption.

  • Queer Code Scotland is a new meetup bringing together LGBTQ+ people with an interest in technology.

    Speaker: Alison Aird

    "The Raspberry Pi is a small single-board computer for students, hobbyists, artists and hackers.

    In this talk, I will show how you can download the latest version of the Raspbian operating system, and get started with the Raspberry Pi. I will show how it is very easy to set up interactive projects, even with no prior electronics knowledge, using an add-on "Sense" board that can be programmed with Python.

    I will demo a number of projects using the Raspberry Pi, including a retro gaming system, a web server, a time-lapse video camera, a Pi-powered Amazon Alexa speaker, and a robot. We’ll then aim to have a hands-on session, where people can get into small groups, view the demos in more detail, and optionally, try some simple programming on a Raspberry Pi."

  • Refreshments and networking from 6:00 pm.

    This event is free of charge and open to all.

    Synopsis
    Recent innovations in tooling for operations has been driven by by the last ten years of growing DevOps adoption. DevOps speeds up feedback loops, delivers value faster, and shortens time to validate before release while simultaneously tricking us into thinking we still can test everything in a CD pipeline.

    Observability had emerged as a technique to handle the reality of real customer use cases like global traffic or malformed historical data that will always uncover new understanding about our systems in production. This talk is Abby's journey into experiencing the sometimes academic sounding definition of an observable system.

    About the speaker

    Abby Bangser is a software tester with a keen interest in working on products where fellow engineers are the users. Abby brings the techniques of analysing and testing customer facing products to tools like delivery pipelines a...

  • In 2013, Edward Snowden revealed the scale of surveillance by corporate and government bodies on the data we generate online every time we simply browse, post on social media, buy things, talk to family and friends, publish and research. What that might say about our patterns of behaviour, personality, beliefs and ideas are of great interest to many who might seek to make predictions and influence. How does this level of actual or perceived digital surveillance affect behaviour? Have writers now become less willing to research and discuss certain topics?

    In 2018, Scottish PEN in collaboration with the University of Strathclyde, published a report, Scottish Chilling: Impact of Government and Corporate Surveillance on Writers, which sought to address this question. Based on a survey of 118 writers in Scotland, this ground-breaking study looked at the question of self-censorship among writers and what limitations that placed on their work. This not only affects their own freedom of enqui...

    www.linkedin.com
