Sex, Circuits, and Deep House

    Bunnie Huang ( Sutajio Ko-Usagi PTE LTD)
    Talk of 20 minutes
Last year at Burning Man 2015, we demonstrated an open hardware & software, 900 MHz radio-connected platform based on our Orchard IoT platform in the form of a conference badge. The badges bore a circular set of LEDs which would flash in a pattern unique to that badge. Attendees with other badges customized their light patterns by finding badges with patterns they like and "having sex" with them. The description of the light patterns is based on a diploid genome, and the process of breeding lights is modeled after the biological process of having sex. The overall protocol to exchange light genomes was designed to require explicit consent of both parties, thus layering a social experiment on top of a hardware experiment. By requiring explicit consent, the badges also served as an icebreaker and a seed for many fun conversations.

    #NefertitiHack and Cultural Commons "The Other Nefertiti"

      Jan Nikolai Nelles ( Artist of "The Other Nefertiti")
      Talk of 20 minutes
    “The Other Nefertiti” is an artistic intervention by Jan Nikolai Nelles and Nora Al- Badri which went viral. “With the data leak as a part of this counter narrative within our investigative practice we want to activate the artefact, to inspire a critical re-assessment of today’s conditions and to overcome the colonial notion of possession in Germany's museums”. With regard to the notion of belonging and possession of material objects of other cultures, the artists intention is to make cultural objects publicly accessible and to promote a contemporary and critical approach on how the “Global North“ deals with heritage and the representation of “the Other”. “We should tell stories of entanglement and Nefertiti is a great case to start with to tell stories from very different angles and to see how they intertwine.“ At this link you will find a torrent to access the dataset under a public domain: http://nefertitihack.alloversky.com Here is the video showing the scanning process: https://vimeo.com/148156899 “The Other Nefertiti” is a conceptual art piece questioning singularity and originality as well as ownership of material objects of other cultures. Nora Al-Badri and Jan Nikolai Nelles went to the Neues Museum and scanned the iconic bust, but of course nobody knows if even this is the original bust. Through time and restoration there might not much genuine be left of the artifact itself. We give meaning to objects as well as we give meaning to data. Why worshipping the original, while we have all that beautiful remixes as of today? Maybe it was a server hack, a copy scan, an inside job, the cleaner, a hoax, but who cares, first of all it is an art piece. Of course a scan of the same thing looks the same, doesn't it? And tomorrow everybody with cameras or smartphones or Xbox will have the means and technique, where one can reclaim the interpretational sovereignty through scanning and sharing. What the artists strived to achieve is a vivid discussion about the notion of possession and belonging of history in our museums and our minds. A discussion on the originality and truth of data as well as material objects is necessary, because in the end one concludes, that the institutional practice of todays museums and collections all around the Western world are corrupted. Museums are telling fictional stories, their stories, just because they control the artifacts and the way of representation. The fetishization of sacred staged artifacts and the Disneyfication is producing capital value for illicit trading and looting artifacts. One can't find a reflection about violent entanglement of the museums and their inherent colonial patina themselves. But isn't representing “The Other” always violent? Art is about building new narratives, deconstructing power relations, not scanning techniques... .

      Legalese.io: smart contracts, dumb lawyers, and you

        Meng Weng Wong ( Legalese.io)
        Talk of 20 minutes
      Legalese helps entrepreneurs take the law into their own hands, by turning contracts into templates, configuration, and code – all on Github. Instead of paying lawyers for access to their proprietary precedents, founders and freelancers can use opensource tools to draft their own NDAs, ESOPs, and angel/seed investment agreements. After a short demo of the system we escalate quickly into a review of the 30-year history of legal informatics, deontic calculi, and programming language theory which Legalese is now productizing with its own DSL.

          Ring a decentralized and secure communication platform

            Alexandre Lision ( Ring developped by Savoir-faire Linux)
            Exhibition Area
          Ring, a project from Savoir-faire Linux, creators of SFLphone, uses a distributed hash table instead of a central SIP server to find other users. This peer-to-peer network is also accessible from other applications using the project's OpenDHT library. Signaling protocols, like SIP, XMPP and IAX, typically rely on central servers to help users locate each other and initiate sessions. Ring is an evolved version of the SFLphone SIP client adding support for true peer-to-peer calling without any central server. The peer-to-peer network transport is implemented using the OpenDHT library, making it a universal solution that can be used for any arbitrary real-time signalling requirement from any application.

                            Talk of 20 minutes
                          As the internet trickles through society it starts to transform the very places where people live. Some think it can change cities in this century as much as electricity did in the last one. The governments of the world, the weary giants of flesh and steel, also tap into this new home. This talk will step away from the computer screen to look at the design patterns of current toolchains for the so-called "smart city" and their implications. Is there a way the free/libre open (source software) spirit can be baked into the infrastructure that society runs on?

                            Talk of 20 minutes
                          Who controls the hardware own's the hardware! Vendors taking more and more power of our devices with no return for us - the end user. They want to decide what software it runs on the hardware they sell to us. Why? Because of security. Security means to prevent the user from owning the device and gives the vendor more power to feel good. This security also restricts the usage of hardware to a certain use case. The open source world has shown there are a lot more use cases than advertised with any given hardware. The talk also gives a short overview of coreboot and how coreboot can solve some problems.

                            Workshop of 1 hour
                          Organisational budgets are shrinking and stakeholders are putting increasing pressure on public sector organisations to be efficient without jeopardising service delivery. There is a multitude of ways to share and reuse software amongst organisations and the public sector employs (and has employed) a variety of different approaches. This session will specifically focus on open source software and the factors influencing the adoption of open source software within public sector organisations. The primary objective of the session is to explore open source software benefits for public sector organisations, discuss the current state of adoption, and review the motivators and a-motivators affecting adoption. A secondary objective of the session is to investigate where organisations are utilising open source software and whether organisations consider open source software as a means of achieving business goals.

                                  NVDIMM is very hot topic now a days. It has many fabulous features. One of them is namespaces. NVDIMM support block and persistent memory name spaces. Both has different advantages and use cases. Namespaces may have attributes unavailable through other means, like different block sizes for block devices, the choice of powerfail write atomicity, and the ability. Let’s understand block window, BTT, SPA and their challenges in this session. I will cover how NVDIMM is solving modern memory requirement. Based on its ability to fill the gap between cache memory and SSD. I will cover how Linux community is proceeding to solve namespaces in NVDIMM.

                                  The number of electronic devices we have around us is gigantic. We need a new interaction model to deal with all these devices, and having a separate native app for each device is impractical. The concept of the ‘Physical Web’ attempts to assign devices with their very own URL, which can be accessed by everyone using their web browser. This opens up a lot of possibilities for developers to create new and amazing applications, taking the user’s immediate physical presence into play. We’ll take a look at some use cases, including, but not limited to treasure hunts, contact sharing and indoor navigation. We’ll dive deep into how JavaScript can be used along with Bluetooth-LE and the Eddystone protocol to create great web apps, and understand the concepts at hand.

                                  Micro Bit (or micro:bit) is an ARM-based embedded system designed by the BBC for use in computer education in the UK. It will be given to every 11 year old student in UK. MicroPython is an "official" solution for the micro:bit. The Python Software Foundation are one of the partners in the project and the BBC asked us to provide such a solution (ntoll is leading the efforts from the PSF side of things). "Mu" is a community generated (i.e. from the Python community) editor that *initially* targets the micro:bit. In the wider Python context, there's been talk of a kid/teacher/beginner friendly editor that's recommended for Python "in general". Plans are afoot to make "mu" meet this requirement.

                                      Yaniv will present overview of oVirt, Foreman and Katello, then will dive into how oVirt integrates with Foreman and Katello to ease different flows in variant systems and data-centers. oVirt 3.5 integration with Foreman allows us to bring new bare-metal hardware to a fully operational hypervisor in one click. In oVirt 3.6 we introduce an integration with Katello to allow oVirt users to see available updates (ERRATA) on hosts and VMs that are managed by Foreman, and in addition on the oVirt engine machine itself. This gives oVirt users a wider view of the updates available for both the virtualized and infrastructure resources. The integration between the projects is still in progress and we plan add functionality to it for better management options for various entities in the data-center hardware - such as provision phase, package management, configurations control and upgrade flows.

                                      Containers and Docker are quite the rage, and people are comparing to the their lightweight approach compared with traditional virtualization (e.g. with KVM). This talk will dispel some myths, and introduce the concepts of hardware- and operating-system- level virtualization. Will also list pros and cons of both the approaches.

                                      Globalization is a collaborative work done by internationalizing, localizing your software. Most developers write software code but they used to forgot to internationalize their software. This talk will present what is mean by Globalization, why is it important. Then we will look at what Localization is and how to add internationalization in your code by showing some code examples. We will look into what translation platforms are available which is also important part of Globalization.

                                      Containers are a hot topic on Linux. In this talk I'd like to give a quick overview what systemd provides in the area of containers, how it integrates with the various container managers, and how to use systemd's own minimal container manager systemd-nspawn. I'd like to specifically focus on the more recent changes in the area, and how this functionality has been adopted by the rkt container runtime.

                                          Open Detection (OD) is a novel standalone open source project for object detection and recognition in images and 3D point clouds. Open Detection is released under the terms of the BSD license, and thus free for commercial and research use. The project was originated under Google Summer of Code 2015 with the aim of having a vision tool for robotics (in particular for Robocomp, an open source robotics framework). The library is built with a very specific goal - to answer the fundamental problem of Computer Vision - Object Recognition and Detection. We make available to everyone the existing solution in this direction in a common, intuitive and user-friendly APIs. Our simple and user-friendly APIs make this a great tool for Robotics Applications and robots and Computer Vision beginners and enthusiasts. And of course, the method dependent parameters to fine-tune detections to the limit, makes this a great tool for Computer Vision researchers and experts.

                                            I developed an extension - Collaborative Spelling Dictionary, during my intern with the Wikimedia Foundation under the Outreach program of Gnome. After my intern, I created issues in the same extension for newbies to fix and guided them constantly giving them an easy and smooth entry into the open source community. I also mentored the extension's issues in Google Code In this year and had several students submitting their patches for the same, successfully closing number of the open issues. I'll use the opportunity to explain and demonstrate this extension to the FOSSASIA attendees and talk about the step by step process involved in building an extension. This would particularly be useful for anyone aiming to work on and develop extensions to be used for any wiki-project (which are already quite popular these days). Moreover, the extension still has scope for further development. In order to be able to contribute to the extension, it is important to understand how the extension works currently, so I would like to explain about this project and its code architecture and also discuss the possible features and their implementations during my talk. I also plan on giving a demo of my work on my laptop (if time allows) so that the audience gets a better idea about the project.

                                                Deep Learning is a hot topic, but has a steep initial learning curve. To ease the pain, the second part of this workshop will *require* participants to have VirtualBox installed on their laptops. The workshop will start from the very basics (with a little mathematics), and quickly progress to getting hands-on with open source software including the training of a deep network on simple problems. This will be followed by a more in-depth portion : Using a pre-built VM, participants will experiment with a much larger pre-trained model, and get an understanding of application to both e-commerce and generative art.

                                                          As developers these days follow agile processes and hence want automation of repetitive tasks. This is an opportunity for them to leverage the power of IntelliJ IDEA SDK to build plugins for IntelliJ Idea and Android Studio in Java. This will be a hands on training session in which developers will : -> setup the dev environment for plugin development -> get an overview of plugin architecture, manifests etc. -> Write a couple of plugins and will be able to deploy them on their IDEs.

                                                            Functional programming provides a powerful set of tools for procedural generation of content for games, art and product design. In this workshop we will explore the use of the Clojure programming language to create a wide range of visual effects, from game textures to procedurally generated animations.

                                                              In this class, we are imagining that we have to build a new and fun product for our imaginary customer. It is supposed to be a gamification of the existing product. So we will learn how to attach an Espresso Lite board to an existing thing and turn it into an input or an output. We will show you how to network these things with each other, with a computer application (most likely a computer game), and your phone. Bring some random not too valuable things (from your used coke can to some dollar store items) which you are not too sad about if they might get altered in a way that they might be not useful for unknown people anymore. We will provide aluminum foil, card stock, scissors, and glue for your alterations. Besides this bring a laptop, your team spirit, and lots of creativity.

It is a text-editing device that lets the user do text editing by means of touch and hearing, without eyesight. It is an ongoing project and the goal of the project is to come up with an assistive device that enables the visually challenged to edit text effectively, and with open-source code + design files such that anyone interested can build one themselves.

This peer-to-peer network is also accessible from other applications using the project's OpenDHT library. Signaling protocols, like SIP, XMPP and IAX, typically rely on central servers to help users locate each other and initiate sessions. Ring is an evolved version of the SFLphone SIP client adding support for true peer-to-peer calling without any central server. The peer-to-peer network transport is implemented using the OpenDHT library, making it a universal solution that can be used for any arbitrary real-time signalling requirement from any application.

To everyone else: Online communication is an important part of our lives. Unlike physical communication, we cannot control who can reach our data when we send it through the "inter-tubes." Fortunately, there are techniques to prevent people from eavesdropping your online conversations. In this workshop, I will talk about easy-to-use security tools that you can use to keep your conversations private: how to encrypt emails and instant messaging. It will be a not-so-technical workshop aimed to include anybody who knows how to use email.

In this process coala makes research available for production immediately and combines rapid prototyping with instant usability. coala also facilitates people entering the world of open source by providing them valuable feedback on coding standards and formatting in one consistent way for all languages.

It also seeks to build on experiences targeting young women who are vastly underrepresented in this field. Finally it builds on the consideration that for millions of young people, the smartphone in their pocket is a very powerful computer, it will be their only computer, and they use it for nearly every aspect of their lives: communicating, learning, taking pictures, and playing games.

The experiential booth will have tools and materials for participants to stop by and create a personalized coaster or greeting. Each participant can stay up to 20 min, as to let other people have a chance at making.

                                                                        What if you could “file a bug on the internet” in a public space where developers, users and browser vendors could be made aware of compatibility issues? You can report issues to browser vendors today, through bug trackers or other feedback mechanisms, some public and some not. But frequently you cannot see the results of such a report—or see what related issues others have reported. It can feel like a black hole experience. This talk is about introduction to webcompat.com, where we provide simple, open interface to web compatibility issues that affect us all as users of the web, regardless of our browsers or devices of choice. Perhaps more importantly, we hope to foster and enable a community of people who are passionate about a web for everyone to help out.

                                                                            Is there any credible way to build a trustworthy communications platform without using free software? At FOSDEM 2013, leading developers of free real-time communications software dared to get up on stage and ask the question "Can we replace Skype, Viber, Twitter and Facebook?". Was this the right question and how does it relate to free software development today and in the future? Pocock talks about what has changed since then and where things are going in this domain in the year ahead, especially with the emergence of WebRTC and the ubiquity of browsers that support it and the opportunities this has created for the world of web development and interaction with other open systems.

Let's stop fighting about whether we should implement the strictest interpretation of REST or how pragmatic REST-ful design is the only way to go, or debate about what REST is or what it should be. A couple of demos (In Golang! Yay!) will be shown that are guaranteed to open up your eyes and see that the dawn of liberation for product developers is finally here. Background: GraphQL is a data query language and runtime designed and used at Facebook to request and deliver data to mobile and web apps since 2012. Hafiz Ismail (@sogko) is an active contributor to Go / Golang implementation of GraphQL server library (https://github.com/graphql-go/graphql) and is looking to encourage fellow developers to join in the collaborative effort.

I would want to introduce another approach to IoT, i.e, using the Firefox OS. Firefox OS is written using the web technologies only and the simple JavaScript API makes it very easy to interact with the sensors and hardware. This will be a beginners to intermediates work to learn what is IoT & how to get started with IoT using the Firefox OS.

Our main aim of this project is to give the total guidance for the blind.Have you all ever thought of the problems faced by the blind people? No will be the answer unless otherwise you are a blind.Even we didn't realise the problems before starting our project.First we started with listing down the problems faced by the blind people and then started finding the solutions for it. So we came up with the following problems. 1. Difficulty in finding the obstructions on their path. 2. Difficulty in reading the road signs and traffic signals.So they can't either drive or walk safely on the road. 3. Difficulty in reading the price tag.So sellers can cheat them. 4. Difficulty in reading books.Since all the books are not translated to Braille letters. 5. Can't watch TV. So we divided these problems into easy, advance and crazy to work on it.First we started working on the basic problems.The first solution we came up was using ultrasonic sensors to detect the obstructions.We created an app which is user friendly (blind person just have to tap) to give the voice output.So we just fixed 3 ultra sonic sensors( per shoe front,back,left/right) and depending on the sensor output the voice will be given as output.Still we have problem in detecting in hanging obstructions and pits.We are trying to replace something with shoe which can fulfil all the conditions.Within a span of two weeks we have completed this task.Further we are working with image processing, machine learning and artificial intelligence to find the solutions for reading road signs(Image processing) and traffic signals(Colour recognition), reading books(Text to speech conversion) and finally for watching TV. As an engineer I suggest others also to work on the projects which would help the highly needed people. Because we never know the problems faced by the poor people and differently-able people. And they don't have enough knowledge or capability to work on their own problems. ------------------------------------------ Problem Background: Corneal Blindness is one of the most common causes of blindness in India. India shoulders the largest burden of global blindness, about 3.5 million across the country with 30000 new cases being added each year. People who are visually impaired face no shortage of problems in India, where living with disabilities can be especially challenging. Pedestrians are often forced off of side walks that are cluttered with vendors, animals and other obstacles. And because of the difficulty of moving independently, accessing services is also difficult. Blind people typically use canes, of course, but the traditional cane can't detect objects higher than the waist. Problem Statement: The problem is now to provide them with an alternative guide to the cane, a guide with a more human like approach. Proposed Solution: Our proposed solution is to develop shoes starting from the most basic level to a highly advanced AI version of those shoes. The steps are as follows: ⦁ Develop a model of shoes with 4 sensors for 4 different directions. These sensors can be distance or IR Led ones. A microcontroller interface would be in place to transmit voice messages through a communications module to the headset of the person wearing the shoes. ⦁ In the intermediate stage the model would contain 4 cameras instead of sensors. The camera’s working on basic image processing would be able to make out textures, landscapes and obstructions to a degree as defined by the manufacturer. ⦁ The final stage would involve trying to get the shoes to define the situations it are placed in by themselves using image processing and machine learning. End users: The blind people around the world. Since our final product doesn't make use of smart/mobile phone, the person who can use it need not be aware of it. The output will be given as sound through headsets. Devices: Shoes, 4 cameras, 4 sensors, headset, a micro controller and other electronic components Platforms, Technologies to be used: Machine learning in Matlab using image processing, interfacing camera, sensor and headset Data set, tools, resources useful in developing solution: Can choose any image processing tools and other technologies.

I'm going to give details about the processes and the machines used to achieve production at that scale. I'll also discuss some popular case studies like Foxconn manufacturing line for Apple. It will be insightful for start-ups to understand the the ecosystem and challenges when you manufacture at scale and the challenges to bring a product from a prototype to production stage.

It can be achieved with handheld antennas but (a) this is more difficult than it needs to be and (b) this limits your ability to communicate in marginal conditions. Building a rotator/elevator that is capable of automatically tracking a satellite across the sky frees up one hand which simplifies the process and increases pointing precision, meaning that you're better able to communicate in marginal conditions than you would be with a handheld antenna. In this talk I'll describe my build of the "Tricked-Out WRAPS" system and, if we're really lucky, demonstrate it live.

                                                                                        Tizen is an open source operating system for consumer electronics such as Mobile, Wearables, TVs, Vehicles, Cameras, the world of IoT & much more. It is heavily supported and worked on today by Samsung Electronics and community. It has already shipped several million products and is expanding. The goal is for it to be a real community effort between OEMs and all other interested parties to have a truly free and open operating system that can be used to develop products without restrictions. This will introduce what Tizen is, some of its history and where it is going, but will try and aim to be more of an interactive session to answer questions and gather feedback. Bring your curiosity and positivity and perhaps we can all build a better future for our gadgets together.

                                                                                          Over the past one year, me and my teammate worked on developing a rapid prototyping framework for the Internet of Things. Repository can be found at: https://github.com/kres/zygote The idea was to make IoT development as simple as Lego, i.e. connecting blocks to build a system. In this case the system is made out of sensors, actuators and are connected to the cloud. The user visualizes all the sensor and actuator endpoints as simple building blocks on the browser. Interconnecting these blocks virtually on the browser creates a actual data flow in the real world (basically over the air configuration of all sensors and actuators). The user can then add triggers, events, timers, filters to the flow to create more complex IoT systems. The top three highlights of the framework: * Setting up the IoT application can be completely visual. i.e. no programming required. (But code can be added if the user wants to) * The system can work over any wired/wireless medium - like bluetooth, WiFi, Zigbee, etc. * The framework is platform neutral. Though it is been developed on the Beaglebone Black, it will run fine on Raspberry Pi, Cubie board, etc. Not limited by the hardware. During the proposed talk I will be talking about design and implementation of the project including the challenges we faced, sample application and future work. This work was presented at an International IEEE conference held in IIT Madras earlier this year.

                                                                                            Talk of 20 minutes
                                                                                          Recently the applications of radioactivity in the industry and medical fields are on the rise but the education in this area has not shown any progress. Nuclear physics experiments are included in undergraduate and graduate Physics syllabus of many Indian universities. However, the required facilities are scarce due to high cost of the equipment and difficulties in obtaining radioactive sources. To provide an effective solution to this problem Phoenix project of IUAC, New Delhi (www.iuac.res.in) has developed some open source set-ups for nuclear physics experiments. In this presentation we will be discussing about Alpha Spectrometer, Multi Channel Analyser Radiation Detection System and USB Geiger Müller Counter. All the development is open sourced and major part of the software is written in python.

The Raspberry Pi and circuit components are relatively inexpensive, making it a good project for students who want to learn more about hardware and circuitry, and see a physical manifestation of how software can interface with hardware. In the talk, we will go though both the hardware and software aspects of using GPIO, as well as how the project can be further enhanced for other practical IoT purposes.

                                                                                                                    It is possible to create and make your own PCB without the use of dangerous chemicals. Simply by using Vineger, Hydrogen Peroxide and Salt you are able to make fairly complex PCB boards. The process is simple and fast and gives you the flexibility to make 1 single board or multiple different prototype boards for testing. This workshop will introduce participants to the process of making PCB boards using a laser printer, transfer media paper and a heat press machine. Participants will get to make and assemble a working PCB board.

We have added many new sensors plug-ins to measure a variety of parameters like temperature, pressure, humidity, wind speed, acceleration, tilt angle, magnetic field etc. With this development we at FOSSASIA are aiming to provide low-cost, effective and open source laboratory equipment to students all over the world. I will also be talking about the low-cost weather data-acquisition system developed and interfacing Gas sensors with ExpEYES. A Poster covering details of GSoC work will also be displayed at the venue. In the end I will add little about my experience of GSoC journey with my mentors Mario Behling, Hong Phuc Dang and Andre Rebentisch, with some critical piece of knowledge or a new lesson to learn everyday…..this may encourage and help future GsoC students.

                                                                                                                    “The Other Nefertiti” is an artistic intervention by Jan Nikolai Nelles and Nora Al- Badri which went viral. “With the data leak as a part of this counter narrative within our investigative practice we want to activate the artefact, to inspire a critical re-assessment of today’s conditions and to overcome the colonial notion of possession in Germany's museums”. With regard to the notion of belonging and possession of material objects of other cultures, the artists intention is to make cultural objects publicly accessible and to promote a contemporary and critical approach on how the “Global North“ deals with heritage and the representation of “the Other”. “We should tell stories of entanglement and Nefertiti is a great case to start with to tell stories from very different angles and to see how they intertwine.“ At this link you will find a torrent to access the dataset under a public domain: http://nefertitihack.alloversky.com Here is the video showing the scanning process: https://vimeo.com/148156899 “The Other Nefertiti” is a conceptual art piece questioning singularity and originality as well as ownership of material objects of other cultures. Nora Al-Badri and Jan Nikolai Nelles went to the Neues Museum and scanned the iconic bust, but of course nobody knows if even this is the original bust. Through time and restoration there might not much genuine be left of the artifact itself. We give meaning to objects as well as we give meaning to data. Why worshipping the original, while we have all that beautiful remixes as of today? Maybe it was a server hack, a copy scan, an inside job, the cleaner, a hoax, but who cares, first of all it is an art piece. Of course a scan of the same thing looks the same, doesn't it? And tomorrow everybody with cameras or smartphones or Xbox will have the means and technique, where one can reclaim the interpretational sovereignty through scanning and sharing. What the artists strived to achieve is a vivid discussion about the notion of possession and belonging of history in our museums and our minds. A discussion on the originality and truth of data as well as material objects is necessary, because in the end one concludes, that the institutional practice of todays museums and collections all around the Western world are corrupted. Museums are telling fictional stories, their stories, just because they control the artifacts and the way of representation. The fetishization of sacred staged artifacts and the Disneyfication is producing capital value for illicit trading and looting artifacts. One can't find a reflection about violent entanglement of the museums and their inherent colonial patina themselves. But isn't representing “The Other” always violent? Art is about building new narratives, deconstructing power relations, not scanning techniques... .

We have added many new sensors plug-ins to measure a variety of parameters like temperature, pressure, humidity, wind speed, acceleration, tilt angle, magnetic field etc. With this development we at FOSSASIA are aiming to provide low-cost, effective and open source laboratory equipment to students all over the world. I will also be talking about the low-cost weather data-acquisition system developed and interfacing Gas sensors with ExpEYES. A Poster covering details of GSoC work will also be displayed at the venue. In the end I will add little about my experience of GSoC journey with my mentors Mario Behling, Hong Phuc Dang and Andre Rebentisch, with some critical piece of knowledge or a new lesson to learn everyday…..this may encourage and help future GsoC students.

With regard to the notion of belonging and possession of material objects of other cultures, the artists intention is to make cultural objects publicly accessible and to promote a contemporary and critical approach on how the “Global North“ deals with heritage and the representation of “the Other”. “We should tell stories of entanglement and Nefertiti is a great case to start with to tell stories from very different angles and to see how they intertwine.“ At this link you will find a torrent to access the dataset under a public domain: http://nefertitihack.alloversky.com Here is the video showing the scanning process: https://vimeo.com/148156899 “The Other Nefertiti” is a conceptual art piece questioning singularity and originality as well as ownership of material objects of other cultures. Nora Al-Badri and Jan Nikolai Nelles went to the Neues Museum and scanned the iconic bust, but of course nobody knows if even this is the original bust. Through time and restoration there might not much genuine be left of the artifact itself. We give meaning to objects as well as we give meaning to data. Why worshipping the original, while we have all that beautiful remixes as of today? Maybe it was a server hack, a copy scan, an inside job, the cleaner, a hoax, but who cares, first of all it is an art piece. Of course a scan of the same thing looks the same, doesn't it? And tomorrow everybody with cameras or smartphones or Xbox will have the means and technique, where one can reclaim the interpretational sovereignty through scanning and sharing. What the artists strived to achieve is a vivid discussion about the notion of possession and belonging of history in our museums and our minds. A discussion on the originality and truth of data as well as material objects is necessary, because in the end one concludes, that the institutional practice of todays museums and collections all around the Western world are corrupted. Museums are telling fictional stories, their stories, just because they control the artifacts and the way of representation. The fetishization of sacred staged artifacts and the Disneyfication is producing capital value for illicit trading and looting artifacts. One can't find a reflection about violent entanglement of the museums and their inherent colonial patina themselves. But isn't representing “The Other” always violent? Art is about building new narratives, deconstructing power relations, not scanning techniques... .

As a result, there is a emerging demand to migrate database systems to PostgreSQL from Oracle. In this presentation, we will report on the following two tools which greatly help our migration projects: * SQL Imcompatibility detection tool (db_syntax_diff) * Oracle emulating function libraries "orafce" and our enhancement We are working at the open source software center (OSS center) at NTT which is the largest telecommunications company group in Japan. For the purpose of software cost reduction, we have been carried out a lot of database migration projects so far. Most of our customers are preferring so called "DB migration project", in which only the middle-ware DBMS will be replaced and AP itself will be reused. This is because such projects are usually considered more effective in terms of development time and cost than the "rebuild" projects, in which the system will be build again from scratch. Nevertheless, the differences between old and new DBMSs often block the migration projects technically, and considerable number of projects may be giving up eventually. We found the major factors that make the migration difficult is following two: * Cost of the estimation work * Technical difficulty of the estimation work itself As a solution of these problems, we have developed a non-compatible SQL auto-detection tool named db_syntax_diff. This tool can extract PostgreSQL incompatible SQLs in AP for Oracle and append each of them a difficulty index for migration. We've performed more than 30 database migration projects using this tool. As another effort to solve migration problems, we are also working on function enhancement of orafce (Oracle emulation libraries). Based on the knowledge of frequently seen incompatibilities in the above estimations, we have added a large number of new entries to the orafce.

The data processing pipeline at Upwork consists of PG production DB, GPDB data warehouse, and multiple Vitesse DB data marts. I will detail the distinctive role of each system, and provide details on the setup of the pipeline, specifically how data flow from production to DW to data mart. If time permits, I will also give some examples of how the platform works for the data scientists at Upwork.

Simply switching your data warehouse or data mart from SQL Server or Oracle could save your organisation hundreds of thousands of dollars. In this session we will explore features that make PostgreSQL a great DW solution, with a mix of presentation and demonstration. By the time the session ends, you will understand the technical and business benefits of PostgreSQL, as well as some cool integration tips for your first project.

This ordering is the core of the dating app Tantan, which I will use to illustrate the talk. At Tantan we have more than one million users every day that look through 200 million potential matches each day, and we need to optimize what we show to maximize the potential chance for a match. We do that by ordering the potential matches based on a number of criteria, such as distance from you, recent activity and popularity.

Terraform can manage existing and popular service providers as well as custom in-house solutions. We can use it to build the infrastructure in many cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, Rackspace, DigitalOcean, GoogleCloud, Docker, OpenStack etc. Moreover it has an provisioners like chef, which we can use to automate for configuration Management. It can be seen as similar to cloud-formation from AWS. Within this short workshop with this tool I am creating a basic two-tier infrastructure stack in a single command. What I will do it in one stroke of command is Create a complete infrastructure in AWS VPC running an app server, What are the things happening in this one command: - Creating a VPC. - Creating a subnets one public and private. - Creating respective security groups and rules. - Creating a load balancer. - Creating a app server running an web server called nginx. - Attaching a server to ELB and giving us a public DNS by which we can access the app. - And it gives a simple sketch diagram of our infrastructure as well. Thus we have full fledged app running on Cloud in single Command. Links : https://www.terraform.io | https://github.com/hashicorp/terraform

This puts lot of pressure on developers and then scalability, higher throughput, UI etc becomes their focus points. At the same time DBA & Ops team too are accountable for robustness and performance. Both the teams approach same applications with different perspective and it creates some challenges. For example while DBA team is concerned about consistency of data, developers are more often concerned about ease of development. How do we address these challenges and work together. As a DB Architect for a solutions company I have been interacting with various customer’s development teams and getting to know their views on how they use databases. In the process, I have shared some inputs with them which they have found quite useful and in turn I have picked up a few tips from them. During my presentation I would like to share about 7 such important lessons that should be pinned to every developer’s and data architect’s desk while developing a web-scale app. These tips are about improvement in the application design and architecture but they come from a Database Architect’s perspective. To illustrate these tips I would be using popular features of an open source database – PostgreSQL.

It also provides a convenient user interface which takes away a lot of common tasks from the developer. In this process coala makes research available for production use. coala also facilitates people entering the world of open source by providing them valuable feedback on coding standards and formatting. This talk features a short introduction into the thoughts behind coala, its ability to speed up research as well as increase productivity and a demonstration of our command line and other interfaces.

In the session Yaniv will show how various management flows can be done easily with oVirt such as network configurations, new servers deployment, enhanced storage manipulations, enhanced live flows, QoS and many more. Yaniv will discuss what currently possible to do with oVirt, and what the oVirt road-map for future versions... and in addition how you, audience, can contribute to oVirt!

                                                                                                                                                                            Jenkins easily allows you to build and test your projects continuously. But creating similar Jenkins jobs could be mundane sometimes, how about automating that part with Jenkins Job Builder by writing JJB configuration files for creating a number of Jenkins Jobs at once. One can keep job descriptions in human readable text format in a version control system to make changes and auditing easier. Creating a bunch of similarly configured jobs is also easy with templating. In this workshop, I 'll start with a brief introduction to Jenkins (if required) and Jenkins Job Builder. We shall do a hands-on session with writing JJB configuration files and see how the jobs are created in jenkins, how can we create multiple jobs and manage them.

OSM is the Free Wiki World Map – an openly licensed map of the world being created by volunteers using local knowledge, GPS tracks and donated sources. One of the online tools developed by HOT to assist this effort is the Export Tool, which creates custom OSM downloads in a number of file formats for various regions around the world. The user can simply choose an area of geographic interest, select the OSM features they wish to export and specify a file format. This export can then be used on a variety of GIS tools such as ArcMap, QGIS, Google Earth, the OsmAnd mobile app and the Garmin GPS device. The ability to easily obtain updated OSM data can greatly contribute to relief efforts on the ground, as well as being used for personal interests, business ventures and research purposes. In the case of the devastating earthquake that shook Nepal in April 2015, post-disaster road and building data from OSM was used to manoeuvre people and supplies to where they were most needed.

The workshop will help participants install and setup the Loklak server on their systems. Once setup is complete, there will be a hands-on tutorial on how to consume the Loklak API to build client apps on various devices and languages. This will cover an overview and short tutorial of using the API wrappers and a thorough walk-through of the API methods. There will be demos of apps made for web, mobile and IOT. By the end of the workshop, participants will be ready with their own app consuming the Loklak API on a device and language of their choice. We can then have a short presentation session by the participants showcasing the apps they built during the workshop.

It combines the speed of search with power of analytics via a developer-friendly query language covering structured, unstructured, geo-spatial and time-series data. In this workshop, we introduce Elasticsearch and its ecosystem. We share how to get started utilizing Elasticsearch for search and analytics. We also share our experience in using Elasticsearch for research in Living Analytics Research Centre. At the end of the workshop, you will have basic understanding of Elasticsearch and immediately can start using Elasticsearch to power up your search and analytics.

Getting software requirement and intends right is a complex challenge. One approach to tackle the complexity is the discipline called 'Design Thinking' as promoted by IBM. The talk will introduce into 'Design Thinking', what it is, how it works, how it helps to create better software. Where does it fit into the greater scheme of things and how can it be adopted in your development.

It has over two million words in 150 languages, organized into concepts and linked in a semantic network. The data is downloadable and available as linked open data. Every year we add tens of thousands of new senses (concept-word pairs), and richer links between them. We will talk about how we organize the data, how we freed it and the Python API for accessing it.

In this report I’ve documented my research on anomaly detection in cloud computing architectures like OpenStack, Microsoft Azure & Amazon Web Services(AWS). Cloud computing systems create a big jungle of Logs and Metrics and these can provide a cloud operator tremendous insight into the systems and answer the most important questions about architecture’s health. My research shows that cloud computing architectures face completely different types of anomalies than discussed in other domains and these metrics are not very useful if used in single dimension but if we perform anomaly detection on multiple dimensions together and correlate thus generated insights with Logs we can increase our efficiency and decrease false positive cases by a huge margin. When dealing with this amount of logs and metrics we need to come up with novel distributed architectures. In this research I’ve focused on multiple dimensional anomaly detection on storm like distributed system using locality sensitive hashing and sequence mining. I hope that this research will provide us with a better understanding of different directions in which research and implementations have been done on the domain of anomaly detection, and how techniques which are proposed and implemented for a domain can be applied in different domains for which it was not initially intended to begin with.

Most conferences will allot a segment of roughly 30 to 90 minutes long to speakers. Talks are arranged one after the other during the sessions. The talks are usually given at conferences in order for the event to have many speakers discuss a multitude of topics. The conferences are held in order for individuals to be able to share their ideas and concepts to people who have experience in the specific field. Lightning talks are brief which requires the speaker to make his or her point clearly and rid the presentation of non-critical information. This causes the audience to be more attentive to the speaker and gain a broader array of knowledge from the presentations given.

Following that I will demonstrate the final result of integration between LabPlot and Cantor. I will demonstrate with the help of few python and maxima scripts what a user can do using the LabPlot. I will also give a brief about what will be its future, how this functionality will eventually help users and how can others start contributing to the code. I will then put some light on the other two projects. Firstly, Ming Ngo added visualization of 3D-data to LabPlot using the powerful VTK library. This helped data to be visualized as points in 3D-space, curves and surfaces. Another project by Ankit Wagarde, he added a very useful tool to LabPlot that allows users to extract data from images. After importing of an image and setting the reference points, the user starts to select the data points on the image that get automatically converted into numbers.

This covers problems like irrigation management, crop maintenance, soil fertility maintenance, crop yield improvement, pesticide management in compliance with good agricultural practices. 2 WORK FLOW ---------------------------- The innovation focuses on developing a smart centralized system to control different requirements for a farm per crop being grown. An IoT based system integrates the cloud AI services with that of the hardware and sensors in the farms / fields which constantly stream real-time information to the servers. Depending on various other parameters like humidity, temperature and other meteorological data, predictions of the requirements of the farm is calculated and the hardware device which automatically opens the valves for irrigation / warns the farmer about doing a scheduled check in the localized language is made via SMS. This provides a centralized GIS collection of the soil data allowing extensive research and work by the agricultural scientists to guide the farmers in a given area for the crop they're growing. Simultaneously it provides the data for governments to optimize on the water irrigation routes / canals so that other drought struck areas can ensure water in times of need. The hardware solution consists of various sensors connected to the GSM chip module on board which allows the farmers to irrigate the farms when needed or transmit data to the required scientists/soil experts in the area who could help. • It keeps updating the data base on parameters such as soil temperature, humidity, air temperature, determine frost and heat events, forecast harvest time. • It maps the fields from phone using GPS and input field sampling information. • This systems aims for mobile first and cloud first implementation. • It integrates pest management system by observing, inspecting, and identifying certain trends in the pests and pesticides. It keeps the track record. • Last but not the least, it proposes high yielding plans and best crop management plans even under disasters. 3 FIELDS ARE THE NEW OFFICES AND DATA IS DRIVING THE TRACTORS -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We are trying to use the emerging Cloud based technologies in AI, machine learning and big data to solve important problems as well as to get the problem notified to the related person in real time. This system allows farmers to monitor and maintain the quality of their farms by sitting at their home just using simple services like SMS in case there is no internet connectivity present in the area or by using the app built for android phones. The hardware is also sending data of the farm to the agricultural scientists who can use it to make data driven decisions. Integrations with the other meteorological information helps to offer the best advice for irrigation. This system can also be used to inform the farmers in a particular area in case of an agricultural outbreak risk in that area. The other solutions include animal breeding and maintaining the data informing the farmers about the required medication needed for the cattle.

In developing countries like India where the internet is still expensive. This is exactly where our IoT platform steps in, with a mission to build a scalable and extensible real time tracking system. We would be having a small IoT device installed in your vehicle which would able to transfer data back and forth to the server. It will help in tracking different vehicles in real time. It would be scalable to any possible vehicle runs on the road. For example, Truck owner would able to track his Trucks travelling in different part of the country, it will give him power to not only track his vehicles but also notifies him during vehicle accident. This technology is the future of the Shipping Industry, Land-Cargo Industry and also for personal use for tracking your vehicle or in the case of car-theft.

Lots of NodeJS developer use it as their main web application framework. They have their own coding-style for the application route and also its middleware. Now, imagine if there are several backend engineers, developing a big web application and they never write any code documentation, only in several function/method. If there's a new engineer join the development, he/she has been given tasks by their lead engineer to enhance several endpoints and they don't know the flow of the endpoint. Hence, it will consume more time for new engineer to read other engineers code. That's why PipaJS come to the rescue. PipaJS is a module for ExpressJS which will help developers to understand the flow of each route by just reading the route and its middleware flow.

Gas-o-Gauge is an IoT based application which uses a Load sensor and a GPRS module in an embedded system to track and poll level of fuel to a server on cloud. It enables users and vendors to track and decide gas cylinder stock in a smart way. With the increasing interconnection between people’s lives and the devices that they interact with in their daily lives, this IoT device is a scalable platform that allows users to integrate their daily kitchen needs and consumption to provide real time data for business intelligence to gas agencies and vendors as well as integrate daily requirements like ordering groceries, recipe trackers, restaurants listing during a low gas level as well as instructions and resources to drive/ride to the location. This prototype has been the runner up at the Indian School of Business, engineering design awards. Link for Opensource Repository: https://github.com/kranthikiran01/Gas-o-Gauge.git

In this talk i'd be talking about the architecture, the functionality and the features that loklak offers in comparison to the twitter API, At the same time I'd also be talking about the p2p functionality and the ability for building applications centered around the tweets obtained from twitter, specifically for customer services. At the same time i'd also be talking about the timeline search and navigation system in loklak.net and how the features offered in them would be game changers to the way conferences are held and allowing users to share maps.

This will take the audience through the advantages/disadvantages to pick up this language as well as what difficulties(technical) I faced while learning this in a short time. This talk will also target the functioning of sTeam and how these "enhancements" were done (code wise) and the strategies applied to get it to work. Lastly, it will also encourage students to take up GSoC and Google code-in to boost their knowledge domain and be a part of the open source community.

It natively supports the new ES2015 module loader. When compared to other package managers like Browserify and Webpack, JSPM shines by supporting all the existing module loading configuration like commonJS, AMD, ES2015. It also allows to bundle the package for production, hence doing away with grunt, gulp or any other task runner. Under the hood it is powered by SystemJS to load the packages. Inside, it is nothing but a polyfill for the proposed ES2015 module loader, to make good use of the future javascript today. JSPM is going to be at the forefront of package/dependency management in the long run as hacks like minification and bundling soon become unnecessary in an attempt to make our web applications faster.

A growing attention has been paid to spatial data mining and knowledge discovery (SDMKD). This paper presents the principles of SDMKD, proposes three new techniques, and gives their applicability and examples. First, the motivation of SDMKD is briefed. Second, the intension and extension of SDMKD concept are presented. Third, three new techniques are proposed in this section, i.e. SDMKD-based image classification that integrates spatial inductive learning from GIS database and Bayesian classification, cloud model that integrates randomness and fuzziness, data field that radiate the energy of observed data to the universe discourse. Fourth, applicability and examples are studied on three cases. The first is remote sensing classification, the second is landslide-monitoring data mining, and the third is uncertain reasoning. Finally, the whole paper is concluded and discussed.

It has new unique features (at rest encryption of the database, integrated Galera Cluster, GIS enhancements), performance enhancements (optimistic parallel replication, max statement timeouts, dump thread enhancements in replication), as well as better MySQL compatibility (temporal literals like 5.6). This talk will go over everything new that MariaDB 10.1 has to offer. It will describe all new features, both MySQL compatible, and MariaDB-only ones and show usage examples and practical use cases.
