Microsoft and Adafruit machine learning kit with BrainCraft, Raspberry Pi, and Lobe @lobe_ai
Adafruit is launching a machine learning kit with Lobe!
Machine learning is a transformative tool that’s redefining how we build software—but up until now, it was only accessible to a small group of experts. At Adafruit, we think machine learning should be accessible to everyone, that’s why today we are partnering with Lobe to bring you an easy to use machine learning kit, so you can bring your machine learning ideas to life.
We’ve always believed that the ‘aha’ moment of machine learning is the first time you see your custom model accurately making live predictions. That’s when you start to understand the potential of machines making smart predictions about things they are seeing or detecting.
This machine learning kit, built in partnership with Adafruit, provides you everything needed to build a machine learning model that can be deployed to a device to make live predictions.
Specifically, the kit includes a Raspberry Pi and a camera module to capture images that will later be used to both train your model and make live predictions. The kit also includes all the other components needed for those two devices to get up and running.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
