Design Artificial Intelligence Into Your DIY Projects
Google’s newly minted AIY Projects group has just unveiled their latest tool: The AIY Vision Kit. The kit essentially uses the same computer vision capabilities as self-driving cars and the Clips camera, but for DIY design projects. Connecting the Vision Kit with a Raspberry Pi and camera lets you (or your kids) run built-in neural network models, so the system can process live video. Which means it can do things like recognize your cat in the backyard, send an alert when your car leaves the driveway, or take a photo of the squirrel at your bird feeder.Learn more about the AIY Vision Kit on the Keyword.
