Doors Open. Welcome to the 9th Kranky Geek event! The event will start promptly at 10:00 am.
Welcome and event overview from Kranky Geek!
How to leverage Web Assembly with WebRTC for improved code mobility.
Natalie will review Project Zero’s work finding WebRTC vulnerabilities and what you can do to secure your implementation.
“WebRTC leaks my private IP” has been an ongoing concern since 2015. Why is this a problem, how much of it is FUD and how can the problem be solved using mDNS to obfuscate host candidates.
A one of a kind session. All browser vendors will be sitting with us at the same time discussing their plans and the work they are doing with WebRTC. Find out the latest and what’s next with all the major browsers in this interaction session.
Breakfast, lunch, snacks, and coffee/tea/water will be served during the event. Vegetarian, gluten free, and vegan meals will be served. You are also welcome to bring your own food, if you’d like.
Kranky Geek is proud to sponsor Girl Develop It! Lets give them a moment to explain their mission.
How to effectively add the latest transcription, speech synthesis, natural language understanding, and bot technology to your RTC application.
Ramping up your typical WebRTC service up to 4K while maintaining consistent, high quality introduces many unique challenges.
Understanding and transcribing speech in a real-world, noisy meeting environment is no simple task. We will cover the latest in speech transcription and natural language understanding technology and the specifics of how they apply to interactive RTC streams.
Our ears are naturally tuned to work in unison, making sense of differences each ear hears and determining direction. This talk will examine spatial audio and other techniques for providing a high quality communications experience.
Get some food, ask some questions, make some connections.
The Google WebRTC team will return for their annual update and review.
WebRTC support for H.264 is limited, especially in the native implementation. The lack of tight coupling of the encoder with WebRTC’s congestion control engine makes it hard to maintain QoS especially for use cases with highly variable network conditions, such as teleoperation. The major challenge is translating WebRTC’s bitrate requests into the proper commands for the encoder, as simply setting bitrate cap doesn’t lead to satisfactory results.
We conducted a massive grid search of H.264 parameters including quantization, bitrate, resolution and other to find profiles that yield the best quality for a given required bitrate which dramatically improved the performance for teleoperation in challenging network environment.
Till will show how to run WebRTC on Google’s Coral Edge TPU Development Board mounted on a small robot.
He’ll describe the realtime control path from the camera/H.264 via WebRTC to a browser and back (via the data channel)
to the motors. We will use WebRTC to drive the robot and collect training data for the AI, then build a Tensor Flow model.
Finally (hopefully) we will demo it driving itself around a track whilst we all watch through the on board camera.
