Adafruit Holiday Gift Guide: Machine Learning

What’s that? A new Adafruit gift guide?? YAHOO!

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.

Don’t miss the guide!

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
