Streaming data of cows during Data Science Africa

Last month, Arm sponsored Data Science Africa 2017, a machine learning and data science conference held annually in East Africa. This year, the Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science and Technology in Arusha, Tanzania hosted the 300 attendees for five days of workshops, talks and interesting conversations. Arm hosted a two-day IoT workshop and a keynote, but the fun starts when you apply your acquired knowledge to a real-life scenario. Thus, on the Saturday after the conference, Jan Jongboom (Developer Evangelist), Damon Civin (Lead Data Scientist) and 15 conference attendees, headed to the outskirts of Arusha for some good, old-fashioned field work.

Built with mbed - Supply chain monitoring with Babbler

This is the third article in the 'built with mbed'-series. In the previous articles, we monitored snow and brewed beer.

Shipping bananas from Africa to Europe, sending flowers over the Pacific Ocean, importing electronics from Asia. Every year, there are almost 700 million container movements (data.worldbank.org/indicator/IS.SHP.GOOD.TU) around the world. The sheer volume of global shipments can pose some interesting challenges. How do you ensure that the temperature of your fruit has been consistent during the entire trip? How do you know that the container was not opened after loading, for example to smuggle drugs? And how do you communicate the data back to HQ in time to act on it? The Dutch company Itude Mobile has tackled all of these questions with Babbler, a small and tamper-proof seal that monitors how your cargo is treated. A fascinating product by itself, it’s even more interesting when you realize that it's the first hardware product the company has ever developed. Reason enough for Jan Jongboom (Developer Evangelist) and Danielle Irons (Content Specialist) to talk with Robin Puthli, CEO of Itude.

Guest Blog - The Power of Where: Location Context

This is the first blog in the "Power of Where" series, authored by Brian Salisbury, VP of Product Management at Comtech Telecommunications Corp.

Every day, an incredible amount of data is being created and captured by sensors. The number of these sensors that are connected to the Internet is also growing rapidly every day. One of the great promises of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that this data will be captured automatically by a broad range of smart “Things” that will be distributed everywhere. Machine learning and artificial intelligence platforms will then consume this data and take actions on our behalf, as well as create amazing insights to help us make the world a better place. But many of those actions and insights won’t be that useful without the context of location. This is what we mean by the “Power of Where.”
