SparkFun has launched a new bundled designed to help people break into machine learning and artificial intelligence projects, using Arducam’s Pico4ML Raspberry Pi RP2040-powered tinyML board as the basis.”The Machine Learning and AI Concept Kit is a starting place for working with predictive algorithms trained from historical data and inputs,” explains SparkFun’s Chris McCarty. “With the Machine Learning and AI Concept Kit, you’ll be offered an open-ended approach to machine learning and artificial intelligence, giving you countless options to make more project ideas come to life and enable you to process incoming data against ML-trained datasets.”SparkFun’s new “Concept Kit” aims to teach tinyML and AI using the Arducam Pico4ML.

Finally, the bundle includes SparkFun’s pan/tilt kit with bracket, servos, and fixings for two-axes control.The bundle is available on the SparkFun store now, priced at $89.95 before volume discounts; to help people get started, meanwhile, the company is pointing developers towards the Edge Impulse Studio platform, which includes full Pico4ML support.
