element14 has recently started stocking a selection of complete AIY project kits and Coral USB accelerators from Google.
This allows engineers, designers, and manufacturers to easily build on-device Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) inferencing into projects and products and take application ideas from prototype to develop much faster.
Lee Turner, Global Head of Semiconductors and SBC at element14, said: “Many of our customers have expressed interest in integrating AI into their projects but often don’t know where to begin. To address this knowledge gap, we have invested in a selected range of AIY project kits and Coral USB accelerators from Google to enable students, professional engineers, makers, and manufacturers to easily develop intelligent devices that can solve real-world problems using AI and ML. Our customers can now use Google’s advanced technology to add speech and image recognition to their projects, bringing creative on-device local AI application ideas from prototype to develop much faster.”
These new Google products simplify the development of intelligent devices that are capable of neural network inferencing.
The entry-level local AI project kits for voice and vision provide simple ways for designers to experiment with machine learning and enable developers to harness the power of AI and on-device inferencing to build intelligent solutions that can benefit a wide range of industries, including the development of smart cities, manufacturing, automotive, healthcare and agriculture.
Users can also easily bring high-speed ML inferencing to a range of existing systems using Coral’s USB accelerators.
element14 stocks a broad range of Single Board Computers (SBC) and development boards for the Internet of Things (IoT) and is the longest standing licensee partner of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
Customers benefit from 24/5 technical support alongside free access to valuable online resources on the Farnell website, and engineering and maker community, element14.
