The Vision AI DevKit (https://aka.ms/iotshow/visionaidevkit) is a smart camera device powered by Azure IoT Edge. Equiped with a camera and microphones, it allows developing proof of concept (or even actual) projects implementing advanced image and sound analytics directly on the device.In a previous episode (https://aka.ms/iotshow/185), Mahesh Yadav showed us the unboxing and first time experience with the device.

In this new episode, Mahesh is back to show us how you can train and deploy new AI models on the device in a matter of minutes.

Azure Maps Mobility Services make the life of an IoT developer easier and they contribute towards a great end user experience.

Watch this episode to see Outi Nyman, Senior Program Manager, Azure Maps, step through the APIs for these services.

Designed to support developers creating smart city applications that move people and things from one place to another, they help create applications that decrease traffic congestion and increase air quality.

The Mobility Service APIs for Azure Maps are brought to life in partnership with Moovit, Inc. Moovit combines information from public transit operators and authorities with live information from its user community to offer a real-time picture of public transit services, including stops, route information, and travel time estimations.

In this fascinating episode, watch how Ofir Barzilay, Principal Engineering Manager for IoT Security, demonstrates a brute force attack (https://aka.ms/iotshow/ascforiot) on a Raspberry Pi IoT device connected to Azure IoT Hub. You will see how Ofir attacks the device to discover its password.

Watch how he downloads a payload and infects the device. You will see him gain control over the device, connecting it to his command and control server to fully own it, showing how he can exploit it for crypto mining, DDOS and more.

At the end of the demo, Ofir demonstrates how Azure Security Center for IoT has monitored, detected, and reported on the entire attack. He also shows how Azure Security Center for IoT leverages Microsoft Threat Intelligence to flag suspicious devices. Solution builders using Azure IoT security will sleep better after watching this show.

Krysta Svore, principal researcher at Microsoft, demonstrates the new Microsoft Quantum Development Kit.

The Quantum Development Kit makes it easy for you to start experimenting with quantum computing now and includes: · A native, quantum-focused programming language called Q# · Local and Azure-hosted simulators for you to test your Q# solution · And sample Q# code and libraries to help you get started

In this demo, she walks through a few code examples and explains where quantum principles like superposition and entanglement apply. She explains how quantum communication works using teleportation as your first “Hello World” inspired program. And keep watching to see more complex computations with molecular hydrogen.  

Learn how VISEO (https://aka.ms/iotshow/viseo) is analyzing large amounts of data (1 GB to 1 TB) collected from drones and other vehicles flying over 32,000 km of railway tracks in France for Altametris, a subsidiary of SNCF Réseau.

VISEO’s Vincent Thavonekham, Head of Smart Factory, and Igor Leontiev, Chief Cloud Solution Architect, show three demos in this amazing episode. Vincent and Igor demonstrate how VISEO processes 42 billion laser dots and other data collected from 450 km of railroad tracks from Paris to Lyon.

Using VISEO’s custom data model and Azure IoT Edge, data at the edge is now prepared for upload to the Cloud in days instead of weeks. From the Cloud, Altametris analyzes the data to track and maintain its railroad assets remotely reducing expenses and increasing safety.

An Ugly Sweaters are a great tradition but how can we make them even better (https://aka.ms/IoTShow/UglySweater) is an IoT-enabled Ugly Sweater.

In this episode of the IoT Show, Olivier Bloch is joined by Jim Bennett, a Senior Cloud Advocate at Microsoft. Jim has built an Ugly Sweater using Azure IoT Central, Microsoft’s IoT app platform, and a Raspberry Pi Zero. Dive into Jim’s Python code and learn how Azure IoT Central is able to connect IoT devices to the cloud faster than any other platform. See how Jim uses IoT Central’s extensibility APIs to control his Ugly Sweater via Twitter. This code is on GitHub for you to play with and extend. Get started today!

Learn how Microsoft is simplifying IoT with the evolution of Azure IoT Central.

Step through a live demo of the new IoT Central retail application template with Avneet Singh, Senior Program Manager, IoT Solutions team.

Learn how this IoT app platform keeps devices connected with built-in device management.

Understand IoT Central makes it easy to integrate into business applications to deliver insights to business decision makers.

Jamie Paik explores more creative forms of robots.

From the video description:

Taking design cues from origami, robotician Jamie Paik and her team created “robogamis”: folding robots made out super-thin materials that can reshape and transform themselves. In this talk and tech demo, Paik shows how robogamis could adapt to achieve a variety of tasks on earth (or in space) and demonstrates how they roll, jump, catapult like a slingshot and even pulse like a beating heart.

Siraj Raval explores generative modeling technology.

This innovation is changing the face of the Internet as you read this. It’s now possible to design automated systems that can write novels, act as talking heads in videos, and compose music.

In this episode, Siraj explains how generative modeling works by demoing 3 examples that you can try yourself in your web browser.
