Today In class I worked on my pi and swapped one of the monitors in the Elab from a mini pc, to a pi. We were able to use the same monitor and just had to switch the computers. I had to change the resolution and update and upgrade the new pi. After that, I worked on my for a few minutes. I looked at someone who took one of the raspberry pi google kits and took out the google assistant software. All you have to do is change a bit of the code and it works fine. I may try to do this since it will be easier to do on my pi.

week 16 January 12 2018

This week in class I spent a lot of time on my pi. I didn't get the progress I wanted to get but I did get a few things done. I was able to do some research as well. I found more resources that I could use and new ideas I could incorporate into my system. I want to see if there is a way to control another pi or Arduino with your voice through google assistant. I'm not sure if this is possible, I might have to find a way to make my Arduino or pi look like a home automation component that the google assistant works with and control it like that. I also don't know how I would do that but it's an idea that I could do in the future. I also want to do some research on cybersecurity so that when Bill gives me a security project I will understand what I'm doing. Next week I am going to get my pi working hopefully in our longer class on Monday.

Today In class I ran into some Ethernet issues. I was trying to download a file on terminal and kept getting errors. I found out that my pi wasn't connected to the internet. I'm not sure what was wrong but when I plugged in a new pi the internet worked on the new pi. Then when I switched back to start troubleshooting it was working again. I'm not sure what went wrong but I updated and upgraded the pi and hopefully, it won't happen again. I didn't get much done today but I did fix a new issue I had.

Today In class I did a lot of test on my pi. I started with an audio test which I never got to complete. I also did ethernet speed test and a microphone test. These two worked well but I was having trouble with my speakers. I can hear sound from when the pi boots but the test I run isn't giving me a sound. I think it could have to do with the code I am using for my test. Next class I will look up a sound test for pi to run. I also found a way to download the SDK for Google assistant without having to manually put it on the sd card. this should make things easier and allows me to get my Pi working.

Today in class we spent the first half of our time talking and recapping what people did over break and new developments that are similar to other peoples projects. Bill said he is working with a guy to get a grant from Hawaiian electric to test cyber security for them. I would love to be involved in this and will definitely do some research on cybersecurity since my knowledge of cybersecurity is minimal. I also got to get on my pi for 20 minutes. I spent most that time going through files and cleaning up my pi. I also had to familiarize myself with folder locations and where my files were since it has been a month since I used it.

week 15 December 2

This week In class I made some progress on my PI by taking a new approach. I now downloaded the files onto an sd card then put them onto the pi. Now that I have the files all I need to do is connect it to my google cloud account. Next Week I'm going to do that and do my video presentation.

Today in class I worked on pi for the majority of class. I started looking around for anyone who has had the same problem as me. Right now I'm having troubles syncing my google assistant api from the cloud to my pi. I wasn't able to find anything but I did find the key I need to put into the files I downloaded somewhere. I copied the key and saved it onto my pi. Now all I need to do is put in the product key and then hopefully it will allow me to start it on my pi. Then I will need to test my microphone and the speakers.

Today in class I had to finish up some touchstones for apush. I then gave my mock video presentation to Bill. I think I did a pretty good job and am ready to make my video. It's not due until next week so I have some time and will probably do it next week when Bill isn't here. For the rest of class, I messed around with Google cloud without getting much progress.

Today in class we talked about the end of semester video and how our presentations are going to go. I went over for a few minutes what I'm going to do for mine. I'm going to talk about the evolution of my project the most and then about whats next. Those 2 will be my primary focus for my video. For the rest of class, I spent adding files to pi to use google assistant on pi. Before I couldn't download the files onto my pi so I had to get them on my mac and transfer them to my pi over micro sd card. Next class, I will try and sync google cloud to the files I have now.

Week 14 November 22

This week in class we only had two classes since there was Thanksgiving break starting Wednesday. I did get a chance to work on my project and do some Unix work as well. I didn't get much progress on my pi, I got some help from someone on Hakster.io who made a guide I was using. I didn't end up solving the error and now may need to try a new approach. I found an online course for Unix that I'm going to try to and follow for the 2-week trial. Next week I'm going to work on my pI mainly and a little on Unix.

Today In class I did the first couple of sections of a Unix for mac online course. I found it online and have been using it for a few days. I started a free trial and am going to do some over Thanksgiving break to see if I like It. Next week In class I hope to finish up my pi and continue working with Unix.

Today I worked on my raspberry pi for class. I got a response from the guide that gave me a link to a forum where people had the same problem. the guide was saying it was a syntax error that you don't need to do -m you can just do pip. I tried it but still had the same result. I tried to go about it with for python 2 but that one didn't work either. I'm not sure what I should do. I may have to find a new way to do it for next class.

Week 13 November 18

This week in class I worked on my pi trying to get google assistant on it. I have been getting some help from a guide I have been reading and have asked the creator some questions on his post. I hope I can get a response or else I may have to try something else. I also saw more guides for people who did in a different way so I can do that if I have to. Next week I am going to still work on my pi but do some more Unix things on my mac.

Today In class we had a group discussion that started with Teslas new Truck line and new car. We talked a bit about presenting and about Mlon musks presenting skill and then about Bill Gates presenting skills. We then talked about end of the quarter stuff and presentations. We also talked a bit about a group of world media people who are coming tonight to talk to us. I won't be able to make it because we have late basketball practice. After that, I had some time to work on my project. I checked to see if i got a response, I didn't get one but did find some other cool projects I want to check out this weekend.

Today In class I worked on my raspberry PI. The plan was to follow I guide I found last weekend on hakster.io. The guide was how to create a rasberry PI that runs google assistant. I started working and was able to finally fix my Google apis. I got the fild on my laptop and transferred it onto my PI. Once It was on my pi I moved on to working on downloading files in the terminal. I made it throught 3 of the 5 commands and on the 4th one I ran into some problems. When I put in the command

env/bin/python -m pip install --upgrade pip setuptools into terminal im getting the error,

/home/pi/env/bin/python: No module named pip.__main__; 'pip' is a package and cannot be directly executed

I sent a comment to the creators email and hope to get a response. I will try and firgure this out this week.

Week 12 November 11

this week in class I worked mostly on my Unix project. I didn't have to much time to do anything for my IOT project. I want to be able to spread my time between both projects equally next week. I want to be able to have something working that I can present within the next week or two. I also want to 3d print and laser cut a case for my PI that can fit my speakers and all of the cords can fit inside the case. Once I have a case and I have my pI running google assistant, then I can start connecting it to other components. Next week In class I want to look how to design a case to 3d print and getting google assistant to work.

Today In class I messed around with some unix commands that I found online. I also watched a video on how to name files, create files and move files in terminal. I didn't read anything in my Unix book. I will do some more reading before we meet again next week.

Today in class I worked on learning all of the commands I learned yesterday. I worked on using the commands in the terminal. I got most of them to work but a few of them I was having trouble with. I also looked online into what happened to ethereum and how it is affecting the other cryptocurrencies. Next class, I will probably read some unix then do some work on my PI.
