Artificial Intelligence is here.
Self driving cars, natural language processing and a new Jeopardy champion – all brought to you by the miracles of A.I. But as important as A.I. is to our future, it’s been a private domain of big private companies. Not anymore.
Mycroft is the world’s first open source, open hardware home A.I. platform. It is a state of the art A.I. based on Raspberry Pi 2 and Arduino – two of the world’s most popular open development platforms.
Mycroft uses natural language processing to respond to your voice. It makes online services like YouTube, Netflix, Pandora, Spotify and others available to you instantly. No need to pull out your smart phone, log in, select a network, load an app and hunt down a feature. Want to hear great music? Say ”Mycroft, play ’Uptown Funk’ from YouTube on my Chromecast” and seconds later your video begins to play.It isn’t just for streaming devices. Mycroft has an integrated high quality speaker. It can play music directly. Just ask Mycroft to play your favorite Pandora playlist, kick back and enjoy your tunes.
Mycroft also integrates with your smart devices and allows you to control the Internet of Things. Connect Mycroft to your SmartThings hub, WeMo devices or Phillips Hue lights and command your devices with the sound of your voice. Turn on lights, lock doors, make coffee, water plants and feed pets. Whatever it is – If it is connected to the internet – Mycroft can control it.
Mycroft is an open source and open hardware platform. It allows developers, makers and tinkerers to explore their own ideas. Want Mycroft to post to your Facebook account? Control a Roomba? Start your 3D printer? You can do it. Our community will include comprehensive documentation on the hardware inside Mycroft and the software that makes it go. And since Mycroft’s core is a Raspberry Pi 2 and his display is powered by Arduino, there are already thousands of tutorials, Instructables and project kits available so you can personalize him to meet your needs.
