Artificial Intelligence Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Machine Learning Mixed Reality Microsoft MVP

Let’s code a drone 🚁 to detect objects and have fun with Azure IoT

You can control a drone using 20 lines of code. That’s the easy part. However, adding extra features like face or object detection and program the drone to follow and object or a face requires … another 20 lines of code!
During this workshop we will review how to connect to a drone, how to send and receive commands from the drone, how to read the camera video feed and how to apply AI on top of the camera feed to recognize objects or faces. We will use a simple house drone ($100) and Python. And, when we review some enterprise scenarios, we will use Azure IoT to sync the drone information in IoT mode.
Let’s build this!

Sr Cloud Advocate 🥑 @Microsoft

💬 On 2021 I joined Microsoft as Senior Cloud Advocate 🥑. Before this I was a Microsoft MVP for 14 years, since 2008. The past 4 years I was awarded in the Artificial Intelligence category.

🌱 Previous to Microsoft, I was leading the Innovation Team for Avanade Canada, which means I spent much part of my time trying to figure our the best way to connect real Business with cool technologies, and engage my colleagues to perform smart and fun activities like participate in hackathons, coordinate hackathons and Innovation Contests, support tech meetings, and more!

🤖 Bruno also like to hack new technologies, play the guitar and run. Run a lot, which suddenly started after becoming the dad of the 2 best sons ever.
