Q. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE DEVELOPER BOARD OTHER THAN THE PI?
A. I’m a big fan of Arduino and it is kind of the original developer board. It is also very powerful because it has a very big community, a good flow and also helps with figuring out how to get Atmel chips integrated into your product. Arduino can help you get past these kinds of problems. It is also good to see that they are diversifying into new kinds of boards.

Q. WHAT IS THE BIG CHANGE THAT THE PI 2’S FEATURES COULD DRIVE?
A. The big change is that this is really a PC now, and it comes with PC-like performance. It is a cheap embedded system with enough performance to displace the PC from industrial and embedded applications.There area broad range of image processing applications where you capture things with a camera and the better CPU in the Raspberry Pi 2 will help in those areas.

Q. WHICH IS YOUR FAVOURITE OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE TOOL?
A. Looking at open source software tools, I think OPENCV is very interesting. I come from a proprietary background and I am excited about open image processing tools. How you are able to take common image processing algorithm and have it implemented very efficiently interest me very much.
