Developers, electronic enthusiasts and students wishing to know more about machine learning may be interested in a new tutorial published to the Adafruit learning resource this week direct from Lady Ada. Explaining how to get up to speed with your TensorFlow Lite kit. Check out the 10 minute tutorial video below or jump over to the official Adafruit online resource centre for more details.
The full kit is now available to purchase as previously announced from the Adafruit online store priced at just under $45 and includes :
– Adafruit PyBadge with SAMD51 Cortex M4F processor @ 120MHz, with display, speaker and buttons
– Electret Microphone Amplifier – MAX4466 with Adjustable Gain
– JST PH 3-Pin to Female Socket Cable – 200mm
– Lithium Ion Polymer Battery with Short Cable – 3.7V 350mAh
“The kit uses our PyBadge as your edge processor. It’s a compact board – it’s credit card sized. It’s powered by our favorite chip, the ATSAMD51, with 512KB of flash and 192KB of RAM. We add 2 MB of QSPI flash for file storage, handy for TensorFlow Lite files, images, fonts, sounds, or other assets.
You can plug in a microphone into the ports at the bottom, to add microphone input for micro speech recognition. Our Arduino library has some demos you can get started with to recognize various word pairs like “yes/no”, “up/down” and “cat/dog”. TensorFlow Lite for microcontrollers is very cutting-edge so expect to see a lot of development happening in this area, with lots of code and process changes.”
