Machine Learning Monday! BrainCraft HAT for Raspberry Pi preview!

published 2 weeks ago by Adafruit Industries

The idea behind the BrainCraft board (stand-alone, and Pi “hat”) is that you’d be able to “craft brains” for Machine Learning on the EDGE, with Microcontrollers & Microcomputers. On ASK AN ENGINEER, our founder & engineer chatted with Pete Warden, the technical lead of the mobile, embedded TensorFlow Group on Google’s Brain team about what would be ideal for a board like this. And here’s a first look! We’ve started to design a BrainCraft HAT for Raspberry Pi and other linux computers. It has a 240×240 TFT display for inference output, slot for Camera connector cable for imaging projects, a 5 way joystick and button for UI input, left and right microphones, stereo headphone, stereo speaker out, three RGB dotstar LEDs, two 3 pin STEMMA connectors on PWM pins so they can drive NeoPixels or servos, and grove/stemma/qwiic I2C port. This should let people build a wide range of audio/video AI projects while also allowing easy plug in of sensors and robotics! Most importantly, there’s an On/Off switch that will disable the audio codec so that when its off there’s no way its listening to you! #machinelearning #tensorflow #raspberrypi Visit the Adafruit shop online - ----------------------------------------- LIVE CHAT IS HERE!
