Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Join Microsoft for their first event Monday, September 24th in their suite 1100 - 1111 West Georgia office for a half-day hackathon.
During this hackathon you will be working on building a Raspberry PI home surveillance system!
A Raspberry PI is a small, affordable computer that can be used for programming and fun projects. For Microsoft Canada’s first AI Hackathon, this submission presents a simple Raspberry PI Home Surveillance System that leverages Microsoft’s Cognitive Services for face recognition; and outlines a set of features on the roadmap.
Microsoft’s Cognitive Services leverage the latest advances in AI and deep learning technologies and provide exceptional capabilities to bring intelligence into applications. Particularly, the Face API, part of Cognitive Services, enables applications to have immediate face detection and recognition abilities. For this submission, the Face API is integrated within a Python-based home detection system powered by a Raspberry PI along with a camera.
We will divide attendees into teams and provide them with a high-level architecture, suggested programming libraries, and template code to work with. Participants will need to fill in the remaining gaps with the overall goal of building the surveillance system (hardware and on Azure).
This event will be such that people without programming background can certainly participate, by reading hints and seeing sample code.
We look forward to seeing you there!
