Google is planning to make a variety of smart tools available in 2017. The Raspberry Pi Foundation announced that the tech giant aims to bring AI and machine learning tools to Raspberry Pi this year.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation announced that Google has “exciting plans for the maker community.” They explained that the tech giant is planning to “make a range of smart tools available this year. Google’s range of AI and machine learning technology could enable makers to build even more powerful projects.”

Google has invited all Raspberry Pi fans to fill out a survey which will help the tech titan understand what tools should be made available. Here’s what Google has to say:

Hi, makers! Thank you for taking the time to take our survey. We at Google are interested in creating smart tools for makers, and want to hear from you about what would be most helpful.  As a thank you, we will share our findings with the community so that you can learn more about makers around the world.

What’s in it for makers

Google’s survey “mentions face- and emotion-recognition and speech-to-text translation, to natural language processing and sentiment analysis.” The company has developed a lot of technology in the fields of machine learning and AI and provides powerful technology for navigation, bots, and predictive analytics.

Makers can decide what tools they need and Google will take their suggestions into consideration. “The company can produce some serious tools for the maker community, so make sure you have your say to get the tools you need. The survey will help them get a feel for the Raspberry Pi community, but it’ll also help us get the kinds of services we need.” The Raspberry Pi Foundation concluded.
