Today, media contents are ubiquitous, increasingly richer and expected to have a higher degree of immersion. To meet this last goal there’s a need for new media contents and strategies for interaction. In this workshop, we will tackle the consumption of, and interaction with, omnidirectional media contents using computer vision to drive the navigation in, and interaction with, 360 movies and immersive audio.
Wireless Flying Networks
In this workshop, participants will become familiar with wireless mesh networks, especially when these networks are used to provide communications in extreme scenarios, such as remote ocean areas and coverage of crowded areas. This workshop will cover both theoretical concepts on computer networks and wireless networks, and a hands-on component, where participantes will configure and deploy a wireless multi-hop network made by flying access points installed in a drone and in a helium baloon, together with fixed access points among DEEC building.
Wireless Phone Charger
Neste workshop é pretendido que os participantes tomem contacto com o processo de recarga sem fios, por indução magnética, de dispositivos móveis. Será requisitado aos intervenientes no workshop que efetuem as medidas de indutores previamente selecionados, coloquem os mesmos em ressonância à frequência desejada, rectifiquem o sinal proveniente do transmissor, e por fim condicionem o sinal retificado para recarregar o seu smartphone.
Learning From data
Computers that learn without explicitly programming them? Machine learning achieves that by creating models that are learnt from available data. Join us in this workshop, where we will use many tools already available for the Python programming language to create systems that can identify patterns and make predictions.
