SkillsCast

Overview of the TJBot Raspberry-Pi project - cognitive computing made physical by Ross Cruickshank.

14th June 2017 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at A special hands-on workshop on IBM Bluemix, Node-Red and cognitive computing

SkillsCast coming soon.

This is a follow-up to the excellent presentation by Ross Cruickshank on artificial intelligence at March 2017’s Linuxing In London, this time also joined by Brian Innes from IBM. Check it out!

In this special hands-on workshop Ross Cruickshank and Brian Innes will show how to connect a Raspberry Pi IoT device to IBM's Bluemix using Node-RED how cognitive computing can be made physical.

Prerequisites:

A functioning laptop with SSH installed and a working Ethernet port, not a tablet but a full laptop with whatever operating system you are happy with.

[MacBook users will probably need an Ethernet adapter.]

A trial account on IBM Bluemix.

Agenda

A demonstration of the TJbot

Brief overview of Node-RED - visual programming environment for event processing

Hands-on workshop:
  • Installing and/or Upgrading Node-RED on the Pi

  • Creating Bluemix service instances for the Watson APIs

  • Connecting the Pi to Watson with Node-RED functions

    • Speech - NLP
    • Image - trainable classification
    • IOT - sensors and actuators over MQTT
    • Conversation - chatbotting for the lazy
There will be 30+ Raspberry Pi set-up for use during this special workshop, but attendees must fulfil the above prerequisites, a working laptop, an SSH client, a working Ethernet port and a trial IBM Bluemix account.

Brian Innes

Brian Innes is currently a developer advocate for Watson Internet of Things in IBM. Brian received his BSc degree from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Ross Cruickshank

Ross works with Independent Solution Vendors (ISVs), business partners, developers and startups to highlight the capabilities of the IBM Bluemix and Softlayer platforms as accelerators for product/offering development and delivery. He is building links between IBM, ISVs, Systems Integrators (SI) and Managed Service Providers (MSP) to expand the ecosystem that builds financially attractive line-of-business applications for our joint clients. Ross is currently recruiting partners to take offerings into the Energy and Utilities sector, around asset management, smart energy and water, and fieldforce enablement.
