The meetup kick started at 10 AM with a “Host Talk” by Shravya Shridhar who plays the role of an architect at TechJini. TechJini also showcased the “Google Dev Agency Spotlight” video which gave more insight to the company’s work capabilities.
The first session was taken by Devavrata Sharma who gave a talk on “AndroidThings – IoT” and also did a demo using AndroidThings and Raspberry Pi. This was a healthy discussion which helped the audience to understand Google’s AndroidThings IoT platform. The attendees also got an idea on the scope of AndroidThings IoT with current and future dimension of technology along with knowledge on how to setup and configure it with Android Studio.
The meetup had a small tea break where the attendees interacted with each other. Post the break, Shweta Garg gave a hands on session on “Text Detection using Google Mobile Vision Api”. Shweta explained how Google has come up with few ML APIs; and Google mobile vision is one of that. This includes the ability to detect faces, scan barcodes, and recognize text. She also showed how Text recognition API can identify text in a static image. Using this API, one can automate data entry, generate text file etc. This works in real time as well as on static image.
The meetup ended with all the presenters being facilitated by TechJini and the Mobile App Developers Bangalore Meetup group for their contribution to the meetup.
