As a tailor-made solution for AI education, the software and machine learning components of the VIA Pixetto vision sensor are just as important as its hardware. We are excited, therefore, to announce our brand new website www.pixetto.ai which makes it easy for students, teachers, and makers to get the most out of the device.
The website reflects our vision of an inclusive learning and teaching experience. In addition to hosting our Machine Learning Accelerator and VIA Pixetto Studio – our respective online and offline integrated programming platforms for VIA Pixetto – the site is home to detailed instruction accessible via our Blog and Tutorials pages. Blog post articles feature current events and the latest developments on VIA Pixetto, and our tutorials provide step-by-step guidance on a variety of AI and coding projects created using VIA Pixetto and its integrated platforms. The tutorials range from “Easy” to “Advanced” to maximize accessibility for Pixetto users of all backgrounds.
Pixetto.ai’s sleek and streamlined layout is further reflected in our three-pronged content approach to our target audience. Teachers are given access to personalized AI curriculum development advice in tandem with web-accessible and downloadable written tutorials. For students, we offer platforms ranging from Blocks and Pixetto Junior to our VIA Pixetto Library for Arduino – all of which allow them to experience and learn AI at their own pace. Further educational resources can be found on our linked YouTube page, which features video tutorials corresponding to written tutorials on the site. Finally, VIA Pixetto’s all-compatible backend enables makers to program the device with more advanced coding platforms, including Python and Java Script, and to connect the device with Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
Pixetto.ai is built to be audience-centric and user-friendly. Our approach is simple: to lower the barrier of entry for learning Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence and encourage user education, regardless of their past tech experience. VIA Pixetto is our tool for executing this approach, and so is its integrated website – as a quick scroll through Pixetto.ai will no doubt reveal.
