Today’s blog post is the most fun I’ve EVER had writing a PyImageSearch tutorial.
It has everything we have been discussing the past few weeks, including:
3D Christmas trees
References to HBO’s Silicon Valley “Not Hotdog” detector
Me dressing up as Santa Clause!
In keeping with the Christmas and Holiday season, I’ll be demonstrating how to take a deep learning model (trained with Keras) and then deploy it to the Raspberry Pi.
But this isn’t any machine learning model…
This image classifier has been specifically trained to detect if Santa Claus is in our video stream.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
