Adafruit Holiday Gift Guide: Machine Learning #adafruitgiftguides
Machine learning has come to the ‘edge’, but you don’t need super complex hardware to start developing your own TensorFlow models! We’ve curated a shopping guide to dip your toes into machine learning waters.
We’ve got a range of Machine Learning boards. From the advanced Coral Dev Board single-board computer that’s ideal when you need to perform fast machine learning (ML) inferencing in a small form factor, to small microcontrollers like the EdgeBadge that can run a very miniature version of TensorFlow Lite to do ML computations.
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.
