Building a Home Security System with Elixir and Nerves

Arto Bendiken

Nerves is a framework for crafting bulletproof embedded software written in Elixir and deployed onto the rock-solid, nine-nines Erlang/OTP platform running directly on top of the Linux kernel.
Arto will show how to get started with Nerves with the motivating example of a home security system running on a Raspberry Pi. To disarm the security system, you need to step in front of the camera and give a big smile.
In addition to Nerves and Elixir, we will use deep learning with TensorFlow for face recognition.
