ML and the IoT: Living on the Edge – Brandon Satrom (video) –
Machine Learning and the IoT are a match made in heaven. After all, IoT devices collect mountains of sensor data, what better way to uncover insights and actions than through sophisticated, modern computing methods like ML and AI?
The problem is, leveraging ML with IoT has historically meant backhauling all your sensor data to the Cloud. When the cloud is involved, security is a concern, and in the realm of IoT, security is often a dirty word.
But modern embedded systems, microcontrollers and single-board computers are getting more powerful, and more sophisticated, and its becoming increasingly possible to bring Machine Learning closer to sensors and IoT devices. “Edge ML” enables quicker insights, tighter security, and even true predictive action, and it’s going to become the norm in the IoT in the near future.
In this session, we’ll explore the state of the art in Edge ML and IoT, and talk about practical ways that developers can get started with both, today.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
