“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” – Hellen Keller
LILY, is an artificial intelligent bot that proves to us that devices too can connect to us in a way just like a close friend.
LILY, can understand our voice, talk back to us like a friend ,
understand various voice commands, detect and identify objects
shown to her, read
out aloud anything that we show her.
LILY is made using AIML, uses image processing on python and Machine learning on cloud APIs, python STT and TTS. all of it is on a raspberry pi, powered autonomous robot. Which is controlled through bluetooth voice commands.
The future of LILY lies in the concept that whether we can put emotions into her. Can LILY track our emotions and understand us. Can she connect to us emotionally?
Lily was selected for a project demonstration session at IEEE International Symposium of Human Robot Interaction, RO-MAN 2016, Columbia University, NY.

Facebook’s Caffe2 AI tools get to iPhone, Android, and Raspberry Pi
Your mobile may soon be capable of recognize objects in pics with no need of accessing the cloud
New intelligence can be included in cellular phones for instance, the apple iphone, Android OS devices, and low-power PCs such as Raspberry Pi with Facebook’s new open-source Caffe2 deep-learning framework.
Caffe2 allows you to program artificial intelligence features into smartphones and tablets, allowing them to acknowledge graphics, video, text, and speech and be more situationally aware.
It is important to remember that Caffe2 is not an AI program, but a tool allowing AI to be programmed into smart phones. It does take just a couple of lines of code to write learning models, which could then be included into apps.
The introduction of Caffe2 is extremely important. This means people will be able to get image identification, natural language processing, and computer vision directly on their phone. That process is typically offloaded to remote servers in the cloud, with smart phones then connecting to it.
Mobile gadgets are receiving more artificial intelligence capabilities. More cell phones are being incorporated with Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant, while Apple’s Siri has been a staple in the iPhone for many years. Samsung’s Galaxy S8 smart phones are going to get the Bixby voice assistant, which will make operating the devices significantly easier.
Caffe2 can function within the power constraints of mobile gadgets. It works with mobile hardware to hasten AI apps and create neural networks.
Caffe2 employs the computing power of new mobile hardware to hasten up deep-learning jobs. For example, in smart phones, Caffe2 will use the computing power of Adreno GPUs and Hexagon DSPs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon mobile SoC.
