Facebook is a veritable giant in the AI modeling world. It has trained models to locate fringe, angry, and emotionally fragile people. T…

Tick, Tock - Part 1

The Pi-Top AI

I recently went to purchase a new pi-top for this project. However i was disheartened to find the original pi-top laptop was no longer sold on the pi-top website. While i have purchased the current model being sold. I found it to be much to limited in comparison to the original model. In an attempt to be more specific, i simply can't tink…

I will add…
