Digital Twins; cities, neighbourhoods & Rail-infra

Featured image

This evening we will have three practical perspectives & applications of "digital twins":
- Tanguy Coenen from Imec will share their insights and best practises within the Digital Twin City of Antwerpen
- Marcel Gerrits & Paul Kootwijk on practical applications of IoT and AI to help ProRail manage themaintenance, safety & security of the railwail infrastructure
- Tom van Arman from CITYXL & TAPP on the digital twin of the Marineterrein

Sensemakers DIY Lab (IoT)

Featured image

Every first Wednesday of the month Sensemakers Amsterdam has a non-organized meetup in de Makerspace of OBA. During this evening you can start learning to work with Arduino, Raspberry or work on a prototype to 3Dprint etc.
Note that we don't provide a course, it is all about DIY, but there are always people you can collaborate with or you can find people to join your own projects! Currently we are collaborating in citizen science projects on Spacefarming and soundclassification.

Smart City Tech hypes in perspective

Featured image

Based on experiences in a great variety of projects in 77 countries around the world, Richard Budel, CIO - Smart Cities, and CTO - Government & Public Sector Western Europe at Huawei, will talk about how to create a hype independent framework for smart city (IoT) projects.
Using cities like Gelsenkirchen as an example, Richard will talk about how to implement policy rulings like banning the video-registration of faces (did you know that for 99% of the smart city applications you don’t even need cameras?), and how to avoid issues like the Law of Unintended Consequences, accidentally creating new social issues while using the benefits from smart cities to solve another.
He'll finish up by talking about his personal projects for the coming years, related to sustainability, safety and security.

Sensing nightlife for safety & Applied Machine Learning

Featured image

This evening we have:
- Tinus Kanters on Stratumseind, a street full of bars & restaurant in Eindhoven that’s also a Living Lab where sensing is tested to improve safety and livability.
- Linda Bergman Founder & Machine Learning Instructor at A.I. Cafe (www.aicafe.nl). When neural networks or deep learning come in the news, it is generally about applications that involve images or videos. However, we can also apply deep learning to time series, and this of course is ideal for IoT applications. In this short lecture we will give a high level overview of deep learning for time series. And we will apply this to two different applications. -Diagnosing heart conditions using a mobile phone -Use iPhone motion sensors to detect whether the user is walking, running or sitting.

And this evening we'll have our End-of-Year drinks + a raffle (e.g. a ticket for The Things Conference:-)

Sensemakers Talks: IoT Satellite services & Marine life monitoring

Featured image

This evening we have:
- Dr. Sophie M.J.M. Brasseur, Marine Mammalogist, about her project on monitoring seals with sensor(data), She will explain the challenges in collecting and communicating the data.
- Jasper Veen from the startup Hiber.global will share their experience with IoT-services from space. Only last week, after succesfully launching 2 satellites, they announced the start of their first IoT satellite trials! https://www.spaceitbridge.com/hiber-launches-commercial-iot-satellite-trials-worldwide.htm
Doors open at 18.30 at Codam College on the Marineterrein or networking & discussing projects.
