Updates from the Tinyverse - February 15, 2022
It has been a crazy time over at HOTG.AI with the recent launch of Hammer Forge Studio. The releases have been primarily focused on SDKs development! Feel free to share the signup link with your networks - https://studio.hotg.ai/ - it is free :)
Our team had a blast at QHacks! Not only did we partner with QHacks, but we also had a grand time hosting a workshop using Forge Studio. The HOT-G’s contestants came out flying to take home HOTG Forge API Prizes with incredible ideas!
Our 1st place winners created an amazing app to use a food model to recommend recipes for all those needing help deciding what’s for dinner! You know, one of those days…or every day! Keep it locked here for a follow-up post where the QHacks 1st place winners talk about showcasing their work in the coming weeks!
The first-place winners from Queens University are:
The 2nd place winner Benjamin Sun developed a proposal for project to detect neck pain using gesture recognition!
Lightbulb is an event held by students at Woodlands High School in Canada. A few months ago, we met the amazing hosts (Hi, Nathan & Justin!) at Hack the North (our first hackathon!) where they were the third-place winners of HOTG’s Rune API prizes. We kept in touch, and they asked if our CTO & Co-Founder, Kartik Thakore could make an appearance to discuss the future of computing and edgeML with students and teachers alike. The event was well structured in a Q&A format where students ask questions pertaining to burn out, entrepreneurship and even what kind of books Kartik was reading. Kartik had nothing but amazing things to say about the event. He loved talking to the students, especially about the importance of mental health and physical health, being a top priority for those who are looking to enter the entrepreneur startup world. Big shoutout to Woodlands High for following us onto discord! Our team love having you with us!
Rune SDK: Sprucing Up
In the last two weeks, we have made several improvements to support more platforms that coincide with the launch of Studio:
RuneSDK for web runtimes have gotten some simple fixes for certain versions of Safari that don’t support BigIntArray64.#411
We have also started to resolve MacOS builds for runecoral.
We have also started working on the ‘most asked’ for React Native bindings :)
Hammer Forge SDK:
Over on the ForgeSDKs there have been flurries of activities:
Support for Audio Capabilities is now added on the webSDK
Support for Flutter! You can now deploy Studio ML projects to Flutter for iOS/Android.
Support for DeviceGroups in deployments
Improving telemetry messages
Forge Runtime Examples
With the stable releases of Hammer Forge SDKs, we have put together examples that show how you can integrate in your deployments with your app!

Our goal is to continue to provide a blank canvas with all the ML tools for artists who want to build something amazing for the edge. Studio, SDK, and examples are just the start - we are shipping multiple times daily to continuously improve this experience.
