MACHINE LEARNING MONDAY – Raspberry Pi + Teachable Machine = Teachable Pi @Adafruit @raspberry_pi #teachablemachine @tensorflow
In our previousdemos, we got Google’s Object Detection models running on a Raspberry Pi so that you could build your own smart camera! There’s just one thing–what if you want to recognize something else besides coffee cups and people? Until recently, this was challenging; either it required a complex Colaboratory notebook or a long series of local commands to set up a local TensorFlow environment.
Google recently released a tool called Teachable Machine that automates the whole process for you! You bring some example images, configure a few parameters on their web page, and voila! Google produces a custom model trained against your own objects.
This guide walks you through the process of configuring Teachable Machine, downloading the generated model to Raspberry Pi 4, and running the model on your Pi.

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.
