Description

It's summer time and we will be taking our member meetup to Descendants!

Our popular Lightning Talks are the highlight and this lineup is sure to entertain, inform and inspire you. You'll hear about Machine Learning and the Arts from Alice Cecile, and an engaging mix of perspectives on digital literacy from local educator Carlo Fusco, and Brent Wettlaufer from The Underground Studio. Find out more...

There are still spots for two more speakers at 5 minutes each, just email us hello at hivewr.ca.

You'll find us in the meeting room around back of the bar area. We'll provide the snacks... please cover your own drinks. Descendants has a tasty beverage menu of locally crafted sodas and of course, very delicious beers. We can't wait to toast the summer with you! Please register now below.

Agenda:
6:30pm Registration
7:00pm Lightning Talks
7:30pm Meet and Mingle, plotting, light scheming...

Whether you prefer a cold soda or cold beer, please join us and meet a great group of people committed to digital literacy and helping kids and adults learn to code or use tech to enrich their lives and provide new opportunities.


Lightning Talks Speakers

Alice Cecile: Machine Learning and the Arts

Alice will share her work on applying machine learning to the development of a design or art project. See how using deep generative models for art work can expand the artist's ability to explore ideas.

Brent Wettlaufer: 300 Seconds

Brent Wettlaufer is the Underground Studio Coordinator at THEMUSEUM and has dealt with a problem over the past seven months: how does one spark further engagement with digital literacy topics if only given a five minute window? In this three hundred second interactive talk, he will cover Asimov’s Laws of Robotics, Object-Oriented Programming, the concept of the algorithm, advances in modern rapid prototyping, and maybe, just maybe, one of those things will stick. His guess will be the cardboard costume involved.

Carlo Fusco: Your Hidden Trail

Our digital footprint leaves a hidden trail online. Instead of being frightened by it, it is important to be proactive in controlling our personal narrative. Carlo will share his experience helping his teacher colleagues, students and parents get control of the trail they leave online.
