Mark your calendars! Join Appsilon at the Why R? Conference on Thursday, November 12th @ 8PM UTC+1 / 2PM EST for two talks by Appsilonians. We will discuss wildlife preservation with computer vision and scaling Shiny apps on a budget. You can find the meetup link here and a direct link to the presentations on YouTube here.
Preserving Wildlife with Computer Vision
Appsilon Senior Data Scientist Jędrzej Świeżewski, PhD will discuss how Appsilon has managed to assist wildlife conservationists in their efforts in central Africa using computer vision. He will touch on the modeling, real-life implementation, and will also share a treat for R lovers. If you’re interested in the intersection of R and computer vision, see a previous talk by Jędrzej about how to make a computer vision model within an R environment here.
Scaling Shiny Dashboards on a Budget
Appsilon Infrastructure Engineer Damian Budelewski will show you how to prepare your Shiny dashboard for a high traffic load. He will also help you understand the costs and requirements of hosting Shiny apps in the cloud. He will illustrate by showing you an example of a Shiny app deployed on Shiny Server Open Source and hosted on AWS. To learn more about alternative approaches to scaling Shiny, go here.
