Google to develop smart tools for Raspberry Pi
25 January 2017
Google is asking for help from the maker community as it intends to bring AI and machine learning to the Raspberry Pi in 2017.
Google has already developed a range of tools around IoT, wearables, robotics and home automation. Its range of AI and machine learning technologies could enable Raspberry Pi users to build even more powerful projects.
Now, Google is asking makers to fill out a survey to help point them in the right direction. The Raspberry Pi blog is urging all members of its community to take the time to complete the form as Google has the capability to produce some series tools.
Its survey mentions face and emotion recognition, speech to text translation, natural language processing and sentiment analysis.
In a comment to the BBC, Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton said “it's fantastic to see Google getting closer to the maker community. I'm particularly excited about the prospect of connecting Raspberry Pi to some of the machine learning work coming out of Google DeepMind in London, allowing us to build smart devices that interact in the real world."
