Google already has its own artificial intelligence projects, and now the Big G wants you to develop your own. For this they have allied with Raspberry Pi, the company that produces those computers the size of a credit card with which you can do many projects.
This fact marks the first time that Google launches something like this for project developers, who with this project will be able to create their own version of personal personal assistants already in the market like Google Home or Amazon Echo. A few months ago Google announced its intentions to collaborate with Raspberry Pi, and they have finally done so.
The kit to manufacture the wizard is being distributed with The MagPi, a publication specializing in Raspberry Pi. For now, those responsible for the publication have published this video demonstrating (briefly) the capabilities of the device:
For now, no other distribution channels are known, or even if Google or the computer manufacturer are thinking of getting users to the device’s mounting kit in other ways.
What we do know is that they have enabled a web where users are offered assembly instructions and more, including downloads of the software image needed to install on the small computer and even a guide on how to use it to become the Ideal low cost personal assistant.
In addition to the microcomputer, the kit includes hardware accessories that are mounted on it. These accessories include a speaker, a board that mounts on top of the Raspberry Pi to which the speaker is connected, and everything you need to create this do it yourself household wizard. From the website of the device ensure that there are more projects on the way.
