The World Famous AI Smart Coffee at CLEUR 19

Using a combination of Cisco Webex Teams, Google Cloud Vision, Kubernetes ,IFTT and some creativity, we analysed 837 faces, served 837 custom cups of coffee, and met 837 happy customers.

The Cisco Google ML Fatigue Analytical IoT Coffee App with Milk no Sugar

You wake up on a Tuesday Morning. Bed hair and eyes still slightly out of focus.
