Hi, Curt here from Charleston, SC, USA
I'm Curt. I live in Charleston, SC, USA. I'm 53, I've been writing software since I was 14. I'm just now focusing in on electronics.
I found Bill's videos and just by watching a few I was able to create some neat devices to help alleviate some of the manual labor of making chocolate (another hobby of mine).
I want to make some more complex bots with Arduinos, ESP32s, Rasberry Pis and what ever else is available.
I do a lot of work in Azure and I'm starting to explore things in AI. Looking into Tensor Flow for a chocolate project that will investigate chocolate beans and determine which ones are good / bad and sort them. I want to use maybe the ESP32 cams to take pictures, feed that to a larger controller and feed that into a larger application in the cloud that's doing the harder AI . . . who knows? . . . we'll see . . . maybe I'll just keep making chocolate and playing . . .
Happy to be hear with some of the coolest people on the planet having the most fun I've had in a really, long time . . . reach out if you have software questions and I'll do my best to help.
Welcome from Canada! I'd be interested to hear more about your projects. Intrigued. Most of my past with AI-ish stuff was in GA algorithms, but the onboard edge vision processing stuff available looks shiny.
Strikes me the challenge with machine learning apps is in constructing a the training data.
Good community here - enjoy 🙂
