IoT is quickly evolving beyond being synonymous with sensor-driven data and becoming socially engaging. There is an overwhelming influx of human information generated in our daily lives that remain untapped and underutilized. Conversations that we have online and offline, pictures that we take, tweets that we post – this human information is often neglected due to the difficulty of understanding or harnessing it, yet it makes up the vast majority of all information that exists. Imagine a sound system that automatically plays music based on the mood conveyed in your tweets, or a Nerf gun that only targets people on your naughty list. Now you can automate extraction of human information and easily access functionalities such as OCR, speech-to-text, face recognition, sentiment analysis or categorization through a simple call of an API to unlock the full potential of the Internet of Things. Join us for this engaging session as we discuss the opportunities of leveraging APIs that can harness human information.
