About this Event

This will be a light hands-on introduction to using a tensor flow model on a raspberry pi. The goal will be to use a model and classify an image. This will be a walkthrough and there will be no meaningful discussion of machine learning, computer vision, nor tensor flow. Even though the session will primarily be copy/paste with some light discussion around the steps, you should be familiar with navigating the command line on the Pi and understanding any contemporary programming would be helpful if you're evaluating this for your own projects.

You'll need:
A development laptop with an SSH client
A Raspberry Pi (3B worked in testing) with recent OS (recent Raspian worked in testing) with Python 3.5 or 3.7 ("python --version"), power, keyboard, networking, screen (most can be done in a shell) ie your home setup.

Optional: Bring a camera already configured with the Pi.

This will be similar to the event a few weeks ago.
