Farnell expands AI products and resources
As artificial intelligence (AI) grows, Farnell and elemen14, an Avnet community, are expanding the AI products and resources available to engineers. This includes availability of the BeagleBone AI single board computer (SBC) and online resources to help overcome the complexity, cost and power challenges of developing for AI.
The BeagleBone AI, one of the newest AI products available from Farnell. The SBC allows developers to have their automation for industrial, commercial and home applications designs up and running within five minutes.
element14 community members can learn the fundamentals of AI in a free online course. The AI Essentials Course covers algorithms, the Bayes Theorem, machine and deep learning and typical AI applications and gives makers and engineers the tools they need to further incorporate AI into designs.
There is also an interactive tool, the AI Configurator, which enables engineers to quickly determine the most appropriate products and solutions for AI projects. New products such as the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Computer, Ultra96 V2 development board and BeagleBone AI are incorporated into the tool. The AI Configurator is part of Farnell’s AI Resource Page.
The new element14 Artificial Intelligence page features all of the latest element14 AI content including a range of member projects, Tech Spotlights, blogs and products. This area will also feature the element14 Presents weekly video series, with videos focusing on the new BeagleBone AI.
