Next Raspberry Pi CPU Will Have Machine Learning Built In

At the recent tinyML Summit 2021, Raspberry Pi co-founder Eben Upton teased the future of ‘Pi Silicon’ and it looks like machine learning could see a massive improvement thanks to Raspberry Pi’s news in-house chip development team.

It is safe to say that the Raspberry Pi Pico and its RP2040 SoC have been popular. The Pico has only been on the market for a few weeks, but already has sold 250,000 units with 750,000 on back order. There is a need for more boards powered by the RP2040 and partners such as Adafruit, Pimoroni, Adafruit and Sparkfun are releasing their own hardware, many with features not found on the Pico.
