Israeli edge AI chip designer Hailo has been selected by Raspberry Pi to provide AI accelerators for the Raspberry Pi 5 AI Kit and is launching a virtual community.

The brings access to the Hailo 8 AI accelerator to both professional and enthusiast creators for home automation, security and robotics base don the Raspberry Pi 5.

The AI Kit is designed for the Raspberry Pi 5 and uses thew M.2 HAT+ connection to add the Hailo-8L M.2 AI acceleration module. This provides 13 TOPS of edge AI inference for computer vision and other edge AI applications.

The key for developers is that the accelerator is fully integrated with Raspberry Pi’s camera software stack and supports numerous out-of-the-box AI applications through Hailo’s software suite and model zoo.

“Our collaboration with Hailo enables Raspberry Pi’s industrial customers to integrate AI into high-performance solutions that are extremely cost-effective and power-efficient. For enthusiasts, the AI Kit provides an accessible way to enhance their creative projects with AI,” Eben Upton, Raspberry Pi CEO, said. “Hailo’s combination of high compute power and low power consumption make it an incredibly attractive AI solution for professionals and enthusiasts alike.”

Hailo processors are available in both commercial and industrial grade and are already deployed by over 300 customers worldwide so designs can scale from prototype to mass production.
