Google is surveying the community of Raspberry Pi users to gauge demand for bringing sentiment analysis technology to the popular mini-PC platform
The Raspberry Pi foundation revealed Google’s plans to bring a range of tools available for its platform this year, including AI capabilities, according to an article in ZDNet.
“Google’s range of AI and machine learning technology could enable makers to build even more powerful projects,” the Foundation said.
To gain an understanding of which AI capabilities the Raspberry Pi community would like, Google is surveying users of the device. The survey presents a range of AI options, including sentiment analysis.
The addition of Google AI applications programming interfaces (APIs) to the Raspberry Pi platform could help popularize sentiment-analysis technology.
The Raspberry Pi was originally intended to be a low-cost, low-volume platform designed to spur young students’ interest in computer science. However, the credit-card-sized computer system has achieved much wider appeal than anyone expected, with more than 10 million units sold. Adult hobbyists have embraced the platform and startups are even using the credit-card sized platform to build prototype versions of new products.
In addition to sentiment analysis, Google surveyed Raspberry Pi users about other AI options, including face- and emotion-recognition, speech-to-text translation and natural-language processing.
