Google AIY Raspberry Pi Python Basics Course

The course uses the Google AIY Project kit for teaching, allowing students to use the Google AIY Voice + Vision Kit kit to operate with the Raspberry Pi Linux environment, easily learn Linux commands and programming, and learn artificial intelligence technology. In the course, students will use Google AIY Voice Kit for voice commands, self-made music boxes and sound control home decoration and other smart products, use Google AIY Vision Kit, learn face recognition technology, recognize emotions through smiles, make artificial intelligence trash cans, Face tracking car and other smart products.

After completing the course, students can master:

  • Control Raspberry pi through basic Linux commands

  • Basic Python programming knowledge and operation

  • Know basic electronic parts

  • Artificial intelligence experience and operation

  • Receive commands via Google AIY

  • Respond to voice through Google AIY

  • Make simple device for voice control and intelligent response

  • Camera module: how to use the camera to shoot

  • Artificial intelligence: smile/face recognition technology

  • Artificial intelligence: object recognition technology

Course Features
  • Allows you to learn Linux commands and program with Python in 16 hours using the recently popular Google AIY artificial intelligence voice suite to master artificial intelligence technology. In the classroom, students aim at making inventions and applying them immediately after they learn the knowledge of artificial intelligence. Taking different STEM projects as the basis for learning and using more practical than theoretical, students will make different small projects/products in the classroom, so that they can remember and apply the learned knowledge vividly.
