Google Revs Its DIY AI Projects

Google’s 2018 versions of the AIY Voice Kit and AIY Vision Kit Google’s 2018 versions of the AIY Voice Kit and AIY Vision Kit
Sandra Phillips | 18 April, 2018, 04:49

Both kits will now include a Raspberry Pi micro-computer, a USB connector cable and pre-provisioned SD card - all parts that were previously sold separately - and will come with "clearer" instructions to make setup easier for first-time builders. The projects help budding makers explore AI-based voice and vision capabilities inexpensively.

The previous AIY Kits, namely the Voice Kit and the Vision Kit, relied on the Raspberry Pi board for its brains. Google has earlier released the AIY projects for the developers and techy minds so that they can satisfy their AI hunger.

According to the search giant, since the launch of the kits, it has witnessed robust demand, mainly from the STEM audience "where parents and teachers alike have found the products to be great tools for the classroom".

Manchester United and Liverpool to play at Michigan Stadium this summer
Two of Europe's top professional soccer clubs will face off in Charlotte this summer as part of an global soccer tournament. This will be the third ICC game hosted at The Big House.

"The kits still work with monitor, keyboard and mouse as an alternate path and we're working on iOS and Chrome companions which will be coming soon", the firm said.

Although these kits are fully equipped, the devices still have to be assembled and to ease the process, Google has released a companion app for Android users that walks users through the wireless setup and configuration of the smart home gadgets. It also includes a new AIY Models area, with a collection of neural networks created to work with AIY kits. If you want to build your own smart home gear, Google's promising both will be available at Target stores and on Target's website this month. Though the new kits cost more, they are worth the price, as they come with all the needed items to do it yourself (DIY). Like the preceding VR viewers, the Voice device will be made from cardboard. The Vision Kit ($90) is new and helps you make your own smart camera that's capable of recognizing people, emotions, and objects, all through the magic of neural networks.

Head here for more details on what exactly the kits include. Users are already able to download pre-trained models for the AIY Vision Kit from the Google AIY Projects site.
