First steps with KERAS In reality, this post was intended for my DLAI course's students, although I think it may be of interest to other students. I am going to share in this blog the teaching material that I am going to generate for the part of DLAI course that will cover the basic principles of Deep Learning from a computational perspective. This post provides a fast-paced introduction to the KERAS API required to follow the DLAI Labs (Master Course at UPC - Autumn 2017). I will teach the part of DLAI course that will cover the basic principles of deep learning from computational perspectives. In this part we will review the basics of KERAS, a high-level neural networks API, written in Python and capable of running on top of [...]

How to Install a Temperature & Humidity Sensor on your Raspberry Pi – A Step by Step Guide

2017-08-09T12:39:05+00:00 January 10th, 2014|

During last Christmas Holidays I learned how to build from scratch a Temperature & Humidity Sensor based in a Raspberry Pi.  It was an important experience for me that give me the opportunity to complete my end-to-end view of the implementation of what we know as Internet of Services implemented in the project COMPOSE, one of our  European project that the Barcelona Supercomputing Center participates. COMPOSE will provide an open and scalable marketplace infrastructure, in which objects (like our sensor) are associated to services that can be combined, managed, and integrated in a standardised way to easily and quickly build innovative applications. Is an example of the convergence of the Internet of Services (IoS) with the Internet of Things (IoT). This step by step guide to install a temperature&Humidity sensor [...]

Python Quick Start

Python is a widely used programming language (source code is now available under the GNU General Public License - GPL) started by Guido van Rossum that supports multiple programming paradigms. With a gentle learning curve, Python is readable, writeable, and endlessly powerful. Its simplicity lets you become productive quickly. This hand-on will show some basic characteristics of Python to help to enter yourself in this great language. At the end of the page you will find very useful links to advance on your own and some tips that could help you.  Good luck! Installing Python Before you start, you will need Python on your computer, but you may not need to download it. Nowadays many Linux and UNIX distributions include a recent Python. Even some Windows computers [...]
