Best of SXSW 2017 – HyperTrypsy Rewind! 

South by South West (SXSW) is an annual conference that aims at bringing the best of technology, music, travel, art and business in the city of Austin! This was my third SXSW since I moved to Austin in 2014 and here is a list of my favorite events at SXSW this year! 

1. Augmented Reality by IBM:  Being a data science enthusiast, I was amused by this technology demonstration by IBM, where they showed the used of augmented reality in analyzing data through various visual perspectives! 

2. Autonomous Electric Cars By NIO: NIO announced the next generation autonomous electric cars in 2020 and demonstrated a concept car! The company has already broken quite a few records and is all set to redefine the car experience! Check it out: 

3. Amazon Tech Talks: Amazon hosted tech talks on the topic of Amazon Business and also showcased their drone which will be used for delivery in the near furure! 

4. Kuri Robot: The Kuri robot was in town! Kuri is a cute robot for home automation tasks and it is now available in the market! The robot learns from your habits and tries to fit in with your family! 

5. YouTube Corner: YouTube showcased a few videos from some of their top content creators and also displayed some insights on what makes for a viral video! 

6. Intel AI Lounge: Intel has recently launched their AI division and there were some interested talks hosted on the topic of applications of artificial intelligence, such as finding missing children! 

7. Mailchimp: mailchimp, a wordpress plugin, was in the town, marketing some of their newly launched features and also,hiring for their team!
