GitHub - Microsoft/ELL: Embedded Learning Library
"The Embedded Learning Library (ELL) allows you to build and deploy machine-learned pipelines onto embedded platforms, like Raspberry Pis, Arduinos, micro:bits, and other microcontrollers. The deployed machine learning model runs on the device, disconnected from the cloud. Our APIs can be used either from C++ or Python.

This project has been developed by a team of researchers at Microsoft Research. It's a work in progress, and we expect it to change rapidly, including breaking API changes. Despite this code churn, we welcome you to try it and give us feedback!

A good place to start is the tutorial, which allows you to do image recognition on a Raspberry Pi with a web cam, disconnected from the cloud. The software you deploy to the Pi will recognize a variety of common objects on camera and print a label for the recognized object on the Pi's screen."

Soulver | Acqualia
"Soulver helps you work things out.

It's quicker to use than a spreadsheet, and smarter and clearer than a traditional calculator.

Use Soulver to play around with numbers, do "back of the envelope" quick calculations, and solve day-to-day problems."
