Sebi came with a new project on his own, which I thought it is perfect – let’s use machine learning to guess how many candy are in the jar!
We’ve enjoyed MeetUp with Sebi a lot and had a good chat with guys from TLR afterwards (namely Billy was just awesome white-hat hacker).
We also caught up with Chris B. and while Sebi briefly introduced him to his new project idea, Chris instantly proposed to use today’s state-of-art machine learning computer – Jetson Nano for it!
You never heard of Jetson Nano? Jetson Nano is a small, powerful computer that lets you run multiple neural networks in parallel for applications like image classification, object detection, segmentation, and speech processing. All in an easy-to-use platform that runs in as little as 5 watts – all magic in size of a cigarette pack.
Well, Chris didn’t just told us about it, but instantly gave a call to Ben and asked him on our behalf if we can borrow one … and Ben agreed – apparently having one spare on his desk!
We had to visit JayCar next day as we haven’t had a power supply strong enough to feed this hungry beast, but Sebi ended up having it working in couple days. Now just to teach it to count lollies! 😀
Getting to the end of our post – allow me here to say huge thank you to Chris Bowen and Ben Duncan – your help allowed us to jump instantly forward a mile! It is awesome to have such a great support from you Noosa guys and always feels welcome for more then a decade!
Thank you all again!
