SUSI.AI - The Privacy Aware Smart Assistant - Norbert Preining, Accelia Inc., FOSSASIA
Feedback form is now closed.
Smart speakers and personal assistants have taken a strong presence in our daily life: nearly every modern smart phone comes with a personal voice assistant, and smart speakers a la Google Home and Amazon's Alexa/Echo can be found in many households. But these commodities come at a price: The price is loss of privacy, the price of ever more transparent customer, not to speak of unwanted transcription of private communication due to the permanent listening for trigger words. A team of software and hardware developers at FOSSASIA is working on an alternative: a open source personal voice assistant and smart speaker that respects the privacy of the user. This system is called SUSI.AI, and targets not only the dedicated smart speaker, but also the general Linux desktop with integration into the major desktop environments. Norbert Preining will present the state of SUSI.AI, both on the desktop as well as the smart speaker. After an introduction to the SUSI.AI ecosystem, he will focus on the integration of recent offline speech recognition systems into the device, and the state of open source speech recognition in general.
