Yesterday, Joshfire was hosting the 7th edition of Paris Hackers, a meetup we created to gather Hacker News readers in Paris and talk about technology and startups.
We first started with 3 selected speakers:
Clément Chastagnol talked about automatic emotional speech recognition. He gave advice on dataset use, provided insights on datamining algorithms, and explained how many and which features should be used in emotion recognition. His slides are not online yet but should be available by the end of the week.
Pierre Chapuis talked about the power and current usage of the Lua programming language: Fast, bindable to C, used in AAA games and popular software. You can find his slides here.
Christophe Duteil from ePawn presented us his startup and its technology. They will be launching a Kickstarter project to be able to produce a end-user product, the ePawn Arena.
As usual, we then had an open mic session where anyone was welcomed to share news about events in Paris and job opportunities.
And finally: pizzas, of course!
