DIY Voice Kit (ages 9 to 90 !)

Project-based Workshop


Based on recently launched Google AIY project, in this short workshop, participants will get an introduction to Artificial Intelligence and get to build their own voice response assistant. The project demonstrates how to get a natural language recognizer up and running and connect it to the Google Assistant, using Google AIY Projects voice kit. Along with everything the Google Assistant already does, you can add your own question and answer pairs. All in a handy little cardboard cube, powered by a Raspberry Pi. Participants can purchase the full AI Voice Kit and required Raspberry Pi to take home for 350 AED.

In addition to building and owning your own voice driven assistant, participants will also learn the following;
  • What is a Raspberry Pi ?
  • How to get Raspberry Pi working as a personal computer ? 
  • Did you know you can use Minecraft, Scratch, Python, productivity software such as word processing and spreadsheets pn Raspberry Pi.
  • How to connect via the Cloud to Google voice services
  • How to program your own voice command
  • Control connected device with voice, e.g. LEDs, motors, etc.
For advanced participants, custom workshops can be set-up to assist with customizing and building your own voice commands to control different connected devices - such as projects demonstrated in the video below.
