Finite state machines (FSM) are a common technique for recognizing patterns over streams of data. However basic FSM cannot easily handle noisy data such as sensor data from a wearable device that is generated using human limb movement. This session presents a novel variation of FSM using techniques from functional programming to construct 'functional' state machines (FnSM).
In this talk, you'll see real-world application of - an Android smartwatch app that recognizes gestures performed using wrist and forearm movements. I will also describe how we used evolutionary computing algorithms to optimize the performance of the FnSM by selecting better parameter values for the various state-transition decisions.
Nirmal Mehta, Chief Technologist at Booz Allen Hamilton, details how organizations can embrace Infrastructure as Code to achieve compliance and vulnerability remediation without slowing down the DevOps process. He discusses the impact of culture, process, and products in transforming software delivery and outlines the tools which enable organizations of all sizes to take advantage of Infrastructure as Code and accelerate compliance and security processes.
As the reach and capabilities of cloud computing continue to expand, so too does its potential to better serve the people and organisations working to address vital issues facing our planet and communities. More and more, we are seeing non-profit organisations utilize the fuller capabilities of the cloud to pursue their missions. The cloud is unlocking benefits such as insight, agility and operational efficiency that are enhancing non-profits’ ability to help those who need it most. In this session, we will share details of our $1 billion commitment to ensure that our cloud serves the public good. We will help you understand the suite of cloud offers available to the non-profit organisations you are working with.
In this session the speaker will go through the various uses of Windows Azure for dev and test scenarios. The content wil call out common current day flaws in testing, such as don't test at all, poor/incomplete hardware, out of date builds in QA, can't test to scale, and several other scenarios. The demo in this session will include building/deploying a simple ASP.Net MVC4 app for testing.
