Manivannan Sadhasivam of Linaro shows the simple photobooth based on 96Boards CE. You can pose yourself in front of it and press Filter button to change the overlay filters and press Capture button to capture the image. The captured image will be stored in AWS S3 bucket with 96Boards watermark and the tinyurl/qrcode will be displayed finally.

DuerOS is Baidu's voice assistant. Since Baidu can leverage its expansive data set, its voice assistant called DuerOS has accumulated more conversation-based skill sets than Alexa, Siri or Cortana.
Interview with Laura Dekker (http://lauradekker.io @lauradekker_io) after her keynote which I live streamed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6mqgHjfEtY (Keynote: Laura Dekker – The Machine as Alien Ethnographer: Advanced Computation, Open Source Systems and Art)
Laura Dekker is a British artist whose work explores the reciprocal roles of technologies in how we experience, make sense of, and construct ourselves and our world.
Her interactive installations combine physical materials, layered video, audio, robotics and machine learning. She aims to engage the viewer-participant with a sensorially rich and provocative experience: virtual objects can intrude into the ‘actual’ world, or objects are activated with a kind of primitive consciousness. There is always a performative aspect - at the point of production, reception, or both.
Before becoming an artist, Laura worked for many years as a research scientist in 3D imaging and artificial intelligence.
Her work is shown internationally at festivals, museums, parkland, historical sites and urban public spaces. She was selected for the Lumen Prize world tour (2014-6), and invited to join pioneering digital women artists in 'Technology Is Not Neutral' (2016) and 'V&A Digital Futures' (2017).
Laura often works collaboratively with the London-based collective, XAP, a group of artists who combine performance, traditional art media, video and digital installation.
Ultra96 is an Arm-based, Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC development board based on the Linaro 96Boards specification, to help developers develop for the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC ZU3EG SBVA484 FPGA. Ultra96 boots from the provided Delkin 16 GB MicroSD card, pre-loaded with PetaLinux. Engineers have options of connecting to Ultra96 through a Webserver using integrated wireless access point capability or to use the provided PetaLinux desktop environment which can be viewed on the integrated Mini DisplayPort video output.
