"If we want to build a truly distributed Internet of Things with billions of sensors then we’re going to need TinyML." - Stacey on IoT

Machine Learning and AI have taken the world by storm. From massively public implementations like ChatGPT, DALL-E-2, and Stable Diffusion - to embedded solutions like TensorFlow Lite and Edge Impulse, ML is becoming the ultimate disruptor.

Likewise, the COVID pandemic has proven that the remote monitoring, controlling, and reporting capabilities enabled by the IoT is becoming more of table stakes requirement (and a cost savings realization) for modern businesses.

In this hands-on virtual workshop, experts from Blues will show off the power of combining TinyML (i.e. ML on constrained devices) with the IoT and the Cloud using the Notecard, Edge Impulse, and Datacake.

Over the course of 4 hours, we will cover the following topics:

  1. Creating a TinyML model with Edge Impulse.
  2. Building a custom cloud-based dashboard with Datacake.
  3. Connecting to the cloud with Cellular IoT from Blues.
  4. Wiring up all of the above with Arduino on an STM32 host MCU.

You'll walk away from this workshop with fundamental knowledge of TinyML, Cellular IoT, cloud dashboards, and a practical understanding of how to build your own connected ML/IoT project!

Hardware Requirements

Registration for this workshop is free. However, if you want to follow along with the hands-on portions of the workshop, you MUST be using the following hardware:

Cellular Coverage by Country

The Blues Notecard provides prepaid cellular IoT by virtue of an embedded SIM. However, if your country is NOT in the list of covered countries (check here for Blues Starter Kit for North America and here for Blues Starter Kit for EMEA), you must use an external SIM card (e.g. Twilio Super SIM, 1NCE, Soracom, among others).

Blues provides documentation for using an external SIM card that we can briefly cover during the workshop if required.

Alternatively, if your country is covered by the Narrowband Global Notecard, you can purchase one separately.

Software/Service Installations

Attendees only need some very basic knowledge of Arduino development and understanding of 101-level C coding concepts (you can get by with copying-and-pasting provided code!).

To make the most of this workshop you MUST come prepared with the following pre-installed:
