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.
The release of Windows Phone 8.1 brings with it many manageability and security enhancements that make it shine in enterprise scenarios. In this session we will explore some of these enhancements and how you can kickstart your managed, secure rollout of Windows Phone devices today. We will cover Mobile Device Management (MDM) with InTune as well as features such as VPN support and Company Portal. You'll see demonstrations of how to easily configure these, as well as the end user experience.
