Raspberry Pi, a small single-board computer maker has now announced a new partnership with Google. The company with its monthly magazine, MagPi, is now offering users an AI kit, to let them build their own Google voice-powered projects. They are calling it AIY (Artificial Intelligence Yourself).
MagPi is now launching a new add-on board for the Raspberry Pi, Voice HAT ( Hardware Accessory on Top).
This will allow users to integrate AI and natural language processing into their projects. With the kit, developers will get access to the Google Assistant SDK as well as its Cloud Speech API, for recognizing and processing commands which can be used to control robots and various home automation functions.
Google Assistant can answer all the queries with the help of Voice HAT and Raspberry Pi. Not only the usual queries, it can also be used to add natural voice commands to other AIY projects.
Billy Rutledge, the director of AIY Projects at Google says, "Google wants to help makers familiarise themselves with voice interfaces, but we're also keen to tap into the creative prowess of the maker community. We want to learn what this community needs, and work with them to build the tools they want to encourage a new era of 'intelligent devices'."
