Kernow DAT @ Heartlands
Thursday September 20 @ 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Kernow DAT is a friendly gathering of Digital Creatives from across the county. Each event brings together developers, designers, and artists who utilise digital technologies in their work.
Tickets available via kernowdat.co.uk.
This outing has two performances:
Hyde & Seek: A prototypal performance – Flat Packed Theatre
Flat Packed Theatre will be showcasing a sneak peak at their new internet of things (IoT) powered performance. Not only will the Kernow DAT audience be the first to experience the new show, but we’ll open up a discussion with the team about how the immersive effects were achieved through a mix of common software technologies and industry standard theatre equipment.
In a long-abandoned theatre languishing in one of the seedier corners of Victorian London an enigmatic stage-doorman weaves a grisly tale of the further misdeeds of Mr Hyde and his… ‘acquaintance’, the tormented genius Dr. Jekyll. Continue Reading.
Beats, Rhymes & Unit Tests – Tony Edwards
Speech recognition is all around us. From the smartphones in our pockets to the devices at the heart of our digital homes, we’re never far from speech recognition technology. Not only does it enable new ways of interacting with computers, it’s also set to reshape Human Computer Interaction for people requiring assistive technologies.
The humble web browser is no exception. The speechRecognitionAPI enables developers to incorporate advanced speech interactions into today’s web applications. But is it any good? Combining two of his passions, Tony sets out to discover if the speechRecognitionAPI can be used as an aid in transcribing hip-hop lyrics during the writing process.
After an introduction to the broader technology, a mix of audio, video and live performance tells the tale of creating an MVP transcription application to aid in the writing of new songs. As a development project, each iteration of the app is accompanied by a set of unit tests. The final unit test is executed live, resulting in a crescendo you won’t want to miss.
