Robot Operating System (ROS) Development - Overview Intel’s RealSense Depth Sensors
Axiom Electronics

Dave Shinsel will provide an overview of available depth sensors, and a deep-dive on Intel’s RealSense depth sensors, including a new sensor that adds visual SLAM capability. He will discuss how these sensors work in conjunction with Computer Vision technologies for various robotics applications, including object avoidance, person interaction, object recognition and localization, and SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping). Further the talk will cover how to access these capabilities via their ROS wrappers.

Dave Shinsel is the Lead Robotics Architect in Intel’s Perceptual Computing Group. He has an extensive background in all levels of robotics, with particular focus on vision and sensing technologies. Prior to this role, Dave was the Director of the Intel® RealSense SDK, created and led the Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers, and led development of the graphics drivers for the Apple MacBook* Air. In his “spare time,” Dave has been building robots for fifteen years. He has received a "Backyard Genius Award" from Popular Mechanics magazine, won a number of robot competitions, and competed on TV in the Syfy Channel’s Robot Combat League, where he and his daughter (also an engineer at Intel) won the $100,000 grand prize with their 7 foot, 9 inches tall, fighting robot, "Crash." Dave is well known in the Maker community for his sophisticated 4 foot tall humanoid robot, Loki.

This meeting will have two parts:

1) Informal meet and greet (food and beverages provided by New Relic)

2) A talk by New Relic's Andrew Ettinger: “Why estimate? Practical “No Estimates” project management in a dynamic environment.”

Abstract: No Estimates sounds crazy, but the reality actually isn’t so bad. My team at New Relic has been practicing a version of “No Estimates” alongside a variety of Agile techniques for about 8 months, and we’ve developed a solid track record of software delivery using it. We’ll take a look at how No Estimates works in an estimated world, how you really can track progress and commitments, and what that means to your team, your stakeholders, and your product delivery process. We’ll also take a look at projects that fit this model well, ones that don’t, and potential pitfalls we’ve encountered so far.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Description:
What happens to our brains when we’re rejected in social situations or made to feel less than? Surprisingly, the neuroscience behind these reactions is similar to that of our early ancestors - but their survival was at stake. Most of the threats that our brains now face involve inclusion ( or lack of) in our workplace. In this talk I will address diversity and inclusion, with a focus on inclusivity and the neuroscience behind it.
