tinyML Foundation has launched their first worldwide open contest in collaboration with Hackster. The challenge is to design and build applications with machine learning and machine vision capabilities. tinyML is a set of machine learning technologies specifically designed to run on low power microcontrollers. Such solutions are usually deployed at the edge, collecting data and helping in decision making.

The organizers are not specific about the hardware paltform to use, and thus you can use any hardware that supports tinyML. Some of these include OpenMV Cam H7Arduino Portenta Vision ShieldHimax WE-I PlusArducam Pico4ML, and Raspberry Pi.
