Machine learning is pretty incredible, and sometimes seems like it belongs in sci-fi movies. We’re pretty excited about the seemingly endless possibilities that machine learning offers, which is why we’ve partnered with Hackster to launch a new contest: Machine Learning in the Real World.

We’re looking for the next great group of projects that help incorporate machine learning into everyday life. Projects will need to utilize our new RedBoard Artemis ATP, at least one Qwiic component, and machine learning (we recommend TensorFlow for that aspect).

Check out the Hackster Contest page!

Show us what you got!

Projects can be entered into one of the four categories below:

  • Business : Are you an inventor or entrepreneur with a great idea? Show us how you would use Artemis, Qwiic components and machine learning in a product.
  • Home: Any type of project that has something to do with solving everyday problems around the house - could be security related, help with meal planning, or add to backyard fun.
  • Nature: Any project that helps solve problems in nature, like helping folks explore outside or helping with wildlife conservation.
  • Wildcard: If your project doesn't quite fit any of the other categories, this is the place for it!

Important Dates:

  • Application for free hardware closes Oct. 17, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. PT
  • Recipients announced Oct. 24, 2019
  • Project submissions are due Jan. 26, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. PT

Free hardware info:

Forty participants will receive free hardware in the form of one of two kits. Applications will be accepted through the Hackster contest page until October 17, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. PT.
