Google AIY Course(Module 2: Google AIY Vision)

The course uses the Google AIY Project kit for teaching, allowing students to use the Google AIY Vision Kit to operate with the Raspberry Pi Linux environment and easily learn Linux commands, programming, and artificial intelligence. In the course, students will use the Google AIY Vision Kit to learn face recognition technology, recognize emotions through smiles, and make smart products such as artificial intelligence trash cans and face tracking cars.

After completing the course, students can master:

  • Basic programming and basic knowledge of artificial intelligence

  • 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 use Python for programming in 16 hours with the recently popular Google AIY artificial intelligence 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.
