What is the ‘Google Cloud Vision API’?

Google Cloud Vision API enables your robot to understand the content of an image by encapsulating powerful machine learning models in an easy to use REST API. It quickly classifies images into thousands of categories such as “robot”, “elephant”, “flower”. It detects individual objects and faces within images. It capable of finding and reading printed words contained within images, and even determines the language it is written in. You can use it to build metadata for your image collection, and can be used to moderate offensive content through image analysis.
The Vision API enables you to detect different types of inappropriate content from adult to violent content. It analyzes images uploaded by the request, or integrate with your image storage on Google Cloud Storage.

For my son Anthony’s 11 birthday, and I presented him with his very own LEGO Mindstorms EV3 set. Previously he was using one of Dad’s LEGO Mindstorms EV3 or LEGO Mindstorms NXT Kits. It was as an early birthday present by a few days, as he needed to practice for the Tasmanian FIRST LEGO League Competition in mid November.

A big part of using a Raspberry Pi is also using the terminal. The terminal is something that a lot of people try to avoid, because they feel like it is a bit hard to use. But it doesn’t need to be that that way, because in reality we can break it down to just a few basic commands that you need to know to do code, tty, and most everything else.

Who was Ada Lovelace?

By Sydney Padua, author of The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace & Babbage.

Ada Lovelace is widely held to have been the first computer programmer. Close friends with inventor Charles Babbage, Lovelace was intrigued by his Analytical Engine and in 1842, she translated a description of it by italian mathematician Luigi Menabrea. Babbage asked her to expand the article, “as she understood [it] so well”, and this was when she wrote several early ‘computer programs’. Ada Lovelace died of cancer at 36, her potential tragically unfulfilled.
