Knowledge Data visualization from Seaborn and Bokehjs
Machine Learning

presented by Championrunner

This will be a complete hands on demo , I will be showing and telling everything step by step . Introducation to Bokehjs and seaborn both in detail and how these can be implemented to the data we are working on and applying models too.

It will include how to judge a good data model and what if it fails , then you can train the model using another model and compare it with previous .

Wordbuilding And Fantasy Map Sketching
An Exercise in Imaginary Lands

presented by Joy Bhattacherjee

Worldbuilding is the process of building an imaginary constructed world with it's own creation myth or evolutionary process where the flora, fauna and entire civilizations spin up at the creator's whim.

In the process of this workshop we will try and create our own worlds either individually or in a group, and try and sketch parts of that world, whether continents, archipelagos or a peninsul...

Leveraging web application vulnerabilities to gather open source intelligence
This talk aims to introduce the audience to how web application vulnerabilities can be used for the purpose of building a self-sufficient open source intelligence arsenal.

presented by saini

The talk will primarily focus on the prevalence of the following types of flaws:

  1. overly permissive application programming interfaces
  2. business logic errors
  3. insecure direct object reference attacks
  4. use of insecure identifiers

Through providing real life examples of discovered issues, the talk will provide a starting point for where and how resourceful OSINT can be found and ...

PiFi
Setting Up Local Knowledge Sharing Systems Using Raspberry Pi

presented by Abrar Burk

Inspite of the JIO boom, in many parts of rural India, internet connectivity is still poor. In some cases non-existent. Folks living here, don't get to fully enjoy the perks of modern information sharing systems, like the internet. It was in this context, that some very experience folks working in the social sector, & I got talking.

What that resulted in, was an experiment, honestly, to see ...

Archaeology 101: Busting Myths

presented by Shobhna Iyer

I'm a PhD student in Archaeology, and the questions I get asked most often include: Do you work with dinosaurs? Which civilization do you work with? Are there any discoveries left to be made in India? Why are you always complaining about having no resources?!

This presentation is a small attempt at busting myths about the field of archaeology, while waxing poetic about everything that is a...

Designing objects for sparking public imagination
an introduction to discursive and speculative design (in a way..)

presented by pranoyguduru

"Designing objects for sparking public imagination” is (in a way) an introduction to discursive and speculative design.

The meaning intended with “sparking public imagination” is not of making something viral; But, of a collective coming together to discuss, debate and imagine ideas. The intention of the workshop is to build/imagine artefacts that are thought catalysts. When people intera...

WebComponents - Let's build em all!
For Microfrontends & Re-usable Components

presented by kaaro

Today, the Web is 30 years old. It's quater life crises are officialy over!

The journey thus far had not been easy, and without the tireless efforts of the Corporates, NGOs, Governments and the people, such a technological marvel could not have existed.

The specifications committees have a huge role in shaping the Web, and one such specification is Web Components. A specification to defin...

Living Audio Files: ListenTree @ Bir
Audio-Haptic display in the natural environment

presented by kaaro, rahul1996

Living Audio Files: ListenTree @ Bir

This is based on an MIT Media Lab project: ListenTree

Setup

The setup would require us to weatherproof a transducer exciter, connect it to an audio amplifier circuit and attach it to the root of the tree. We have been experimenting with a few different transducers that we were able to arrange from our local e...

The Compute theory
My personal perspective

presented by kaaro

Well, we could think of computes as the most fundamental observable unit in the physical world.

Over the last few decades, we have come to a conclusion that our universe, as we know it is "alterations" (there is a better word) in the fundamental fields, but when we try to observe these values as particles, we have limitations. I want to argue here that if instead of studying them as particl...

Project icestorm
Open source FPGA workflow

presented by Tavish Naruka

This will be short talk on project icestorm, which is an open source toolchain for FPGAs. This is the first such project which allows one to completely ditch vendor tools and use open source software to allow you to write verilog code for certain chips from Lattice Semiconductors. This will be an introductory talk explaining what FPGAs are, and how this project is useful.
