A Machine Learning Halloween at Nomad

It’s the Halloween season and Preface Hackathon is infested by a bunch of friendly ghosts! On last Sunday, The Nomad recruited teams of App Inventor and Scratch students to find these ghosts using machine learning.

Our App Inventor students built a smart app using image recognition for Halloween this year!

Building “Ghostbusters” with MIT App Inventor

This year many friendly ghosts hid inside QR codes. The mission of our ghostbusters (aka the App Inventor students) is to bust as many ghosts as possible – all done with a self-built app. Students learnt how to build a mobile app that makes use of QR code scanning and image recognition plugin to accomplish their mission in the Halloween-themed campus.

MIT Scratch – Digital Costume using Facial Recognition

Physical Halloween costumes are so predictable. This year our Scratch students created their very own digital costume using facial recognition technology. In this Hackathon, they learnt how to design and wear their own digital costumes using Scratch, and build interactive Halloween games using the facial recognition tech and motion sensors.

All our students are ready for Halloween with their own shiny apps this year, what about you?
