Social media plays a significant role in our communication, which can be especially crucial during times of disaster. Every word, photo, video, & follower on Twitter can provide useful data & insight. However, historically, it has been difficult for computers to make sense of unstructured data contained within a social media feed. But with Watson & AI, we can start to make sense of this incredibly useful information.

In this workshop, we will use Node-RED & Watson APIs to do AI analysis of raw unstructured data in the hopes of gaining useful insight. Node-RED is very easy to get started with & is a great open-source tool for beginners who want to write & understand programming flow. We will use services such as sentiment analysis, tone analyzer, text to speech, language translator & visual recognition to gain meaningful information. We will also have an open discussion on how we can use this type of technology to benefit us during times of disaster & recovery.

By the end of this talk, you should be able to walk away with:

Overall understanding of Node-RED
Creating flows in Node-RED
Analyzing Tweets with Sentiment Analysis, Tone Analysis, Language Translator & Image Analysis
Deploying, Importing & Exporting flows


630pm - doors open, pizza, drinks, & networking
7-830pm - Workshop[masked]pm - additional Q&A & networking
845pm - venue closes

Who is this event for?

This workshop is for both beginners, experienced developers, makers, tech enthusiasts, entrepreneurs & anyone who is interested in rapid prototyping or is just curious about flow-based programming.
