Using IoT and AI to make museums better

This is one of my talks.

I can pretty much just turn up and deliver this with very little notice.

Talk Title

Using IoT and AI to make museums better

Talk Description

When was the last time to visited your local museum? …. Museums are under increasing pressure to become commercially viable whilst modernising themselves and appealing the insta-generation. This is the story of how Microsoft worked with Black Radley to create the ‘intelligent exhibit’ IoT device. This is a Raspberry Pi device which adds artificial intelligence to museum exhibits by tailoring the audio description to the age of the exhibit visitor. It does this whilst logging insightful analytics data on the back end which tracks visitors as they traverse the museum. This is a tale of IoT, cloud, cardboard and museum artefacts from the 1800’s.
