Our 4th year of Kranky Geek in San Francisco
Doors Open. Welcome to the 7th Kranky Geek event! The event will start promptly at 10:00 am.
Welcome and event overview from Kranky Geek!
Over 400 million people call or video chat one another through Facebook Messenger every month. Li-Tal Mashiach, Engineering Manager @ Facebook will discuss some of the challenges and opportunities that come with scale.
The ideal confluence of RTC and AI leads itself to several interesting trends to augment the communications experience through AI and ML techniques. Badri Rajasekar, CTO @ Tokbox will explore some of the trends with a few examples of how to leverage this trend.
Get a snack and network with hundreds of WebRTCers.
Speech analytics have been around for decades, but only recently has this technology become widely accessible. We will discuss the benefits and discoveries that have come from applying deep learning neural networks to speech recognition and Natural Language Processing (NLP) to deliver actionable intelligence from spoken information
How do you find ways to send more pixels and lose fewer packets in various network conditions? Emil Ivov from Atlassian will review his team’s efforts to continually optimize video quality using machine learning.
Scaling media servers in multiparty calling services is very different than scaling traditional web services. We discuss best practices for scaling server-side video media infrastructure.
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.
WebRTC is now on iOS and Safari. WebKit will discuss the details you need to effectively expand WebRTC to Safari and make it run in an iOS webview.
Connecting millions of video streams into a real time mesh network introduces some interesting scaling issues. Peer5 will explain how WebRTC’s data channel can create P2P networks to stream live video to large TV-sized audiences.
Get a snack and network with hundreds of WebRTCers. Important: Google facilities has a mandatory fire drill scheduled during this hour. All participants must leave the building via the stairs. We have allowed a longer break period subject to change.
How do you design and operate a service that runs group calls with over a million minutes a day? That’s exactly what Slack is going to share with us.
Enhance your WebRTC video streams with augmented reality (AR)! Twilio will review some of the techniques and methods you can use.
Speech-to-Text, Text Translators, and Text-to-Speech services are all becoming readily available both in the cloud or at the client. In this demo Frozen Mountain will mash them all together and mix in some WebRTC to create a real time translation web app for some special use cases.
Get some food, ask some questions, make some connections.
The Google product team will provide insights on what they have been working on and a roadmap of where they’re going.
Inappropriate video content can quickly attract unwanted attention to your growing video application. WebRTC top gun Philipp Hancke (Fippo) will show how to use recent advances in image processing technologies to quickly and easily keep your service “Safe for Work.”
