Computer Vision with Google AIY Vision Kit and Raspberry Pi
For 9 - 15 years old
Computer vision is a field of artificial intelligence that trains computers to interpret and understand the visual world. By studying computer vision, we could get a glimpse of what artificial intelligence could do to our daily life and future.
In this course, the students will learn via Google AIY Vision Kit (which consists of Raspberry Pi zero, Pi Camera and vision bonnet) what computer vision is, and how to program the kit using Python to construct different artificial intelligence models.
