AppInventor 04: Teachable machine

The basic idea of the Teachable Machine is to teach the program or computer to recognize certain images, sounds and visual material. As part of the worksheet, images are captured and classified using the Look Extension. Afterwards, students can try Google’s Teachable Machine and train their own model.
