Microsoft AI: Discover AI Nose Tech Minute and AI Lab with Benjamin Cabé

Microsoft AI is bringing us the latest Tech Minute and AI Lab series introducing Benjamin’s Cabe’s Artificial Nose background, AI knowledge and present the project to help you get started, realize and unlock new AI possibilities with interesting stories and useful tools. 

The Tech Minutes is a series of videos highlighting innovative Microsoft technologies that people can start implementing today. In this Tech Minute, Benjamin walks us through how he built his Artificial Nose and how others can get started with ML through this project even if they don’t have ML/AI background. 

You will learn all about Benjamin’s project inspiration story, simulate the AI nose by selecting an item to simulate the presence of a specific smell, and see how the AI system would detect it

Thanks to  Benjamin Cabé, now you can follow up the most comprehensive tutorial to build your AI-powered artificial nose that can sort coffee from tea, or identify whatever else you train it to smell. The Artificial Nose is powered by the Wio Terminal, Grove Multichannel gas sensor, and a TinyML neural network-based free online tool Edge Impulse.

Giveaway LIVE now! 

We are giving away 3 pieces of Wio Terminal to help you to take this AI journey together with the whole community. Let us know what scent are you most interested in! Join us on Twitter! 

Connect Artificial Nose to Azure IoT Central 

Since the Wio Terminal is an Azure certified device, not only can the artificial nose sense and tag the scents you want to know in the air, but everything can be analyzed and visualized in real-time through Azure IoT Central. Furthermore, there are endless possibilities for extending the capabilities of the nose, with over 300 Grove modules that are compatible with the Wio Terminal.

More importantly, you can automatically trigger rules when, for example, a bad smell is being detected, therefore allowing the nose to be much smarter than if it were just a standalone, offline, device.
