Google wants to add AI to gadgets made using Raspberry Pi

Agam Shah | Jan. 27, 2017
Google plans to bring open source machine-learning tools to board makers later this year

But boards don't have much processing power, so the tools could push back decision-making to Google's cloud, which has more powerful AI and data-analysis tools. For example, a robot may have limited image recognition technology and may instead consult the cloud when trying to identify an obstacle.

Some companies like Movidius -- which is a part of Intel -- have modified TensorFlow code to improve computer vision in robots and drones.

Google is also finalizing its IoT technology called Android Things, a lightweight version of the Android OS. The company hasn't talked about AI technologies available in Android Things.
