Interfacing with the Raspberry Pi Coursera


About this course: The Raspberry Pi uses a variety of input/output devices based on protocols such as HDMI, USB, and Ethernet to communicate with the outside world. In this class you will learn how to use these protocols with other external devices (sensors, motors, GPS, orientation, LCD screens etc.) to get your IoT device to interact with the real world. Most physical devices use analog signals; however computer hardware is digital so in this class you will learn how these signals are converted back-and-forth and how this must be considered as you program your device. The basic design of a sensor-actuator system will also be covered. You will also learn how to build more sophisticated hardware systems using Raspberry Pi expansion boards to create fun and exciting IoT devices.

Santa Monica shoppers don't appear thrilled about a $999 iPhone

Los Angeles Times

Apple Inc. showcased its latest iPhones -- the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X -- on Tuesday in a much-hyped product unveiling held for the first time at the Steve Jobs Theater at its Cupertino, Calif., campus. An update of the company's signature gadget, now in its 10th year, was the most anticipated part of the keynote address, and it could have big ramifications for the smartphone industry as a whole. There was news about the Apple Watch and the Apple TV too. Santa Monica shoppers don't appear thrilled about a $999 iPhone Local university student Lyra Xu had been hearing rumors for months that the latest "would be the most expensive iPhone in history, so I wasn't shocked." Her fears were confirmed Tuesday morning at the Apple Store at the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica.

Introduction to Big Data Udemy


Big Data is not always about the volume of data, it is about the value that lies in that View of Data. Hence, big data is the amount of data which cannot be processed by the existing computational infrastructure. In much simpler terms, the amount of data which cannot fit into the RAM of your existing hardware for computational purposes, is referred to as big data for that hardware. The course gives basic understanding and jargons of the data science. The course will help you understand the basic concepts on identifying the right data and make sense of Big Data.

Start the Internet of Things (IoT) from scratch


Internet of Things (IoT) is the networking of physical devices or things using Wi-Fi or other networks. Things, can refer to a variety of physical devices or sensors such as bio sensors, actuators, home appliances, transponders, automobiles, farm sensors or other hardware. Now, IoT is changing the way we live. It helps us in daily live, i.e. collecting and processing huge amounts of data, interact with each other, and take advantage of cloud services and cloud storage.

In 2012, upon discovering that the number of students wanting to study IT at the University of Cambridge had dwindled dramatically, Eben Upton began brainstorming for a gimmick to increase the number of enrollees. So he came up with the Raspberry Pi. The $35-a-pop minicomputer became an instant hit, sold like hotcakes worldwide, and has prompted the rise of amateur inventors. Innovative projects like voice-activated coffee machines, bow-tie spy cams, and humanoid robots were all spawned by that tiny piece of machinery. And you, too, could get in on the game and start a slew of your own creative projects with the Raspberry Pi.
