Wendel's Jarvis setup

So a long time ago i remember wendel saying that he has a bunch of systems in place that enable something similar to the Jarvis system in Iron man.

I would love to hear more about it from @wendell or anyone else who knows about it.

thanks in advance!


I think what you're looking for is a local text to speech API/suite, like Simon, Jasper, Natl or Sphinx, in combination with networked home automation.


Looked into this a while ago. Generally offline speech recognition does not work as well as the online-cloud-enabled one. But one maker wrote about getting decent results with Sphinx and a wordlist (meaning: Sphinx could only recognize words or phrases on the list).


I do remember him talking about that. I believe it was not just one app but a mixture of things and scripts he put together for what was needed.

Would love more detail as well from da man :)


I would also like to hear about this. I don't think I have amassed nearly enough hardware to be able to run such a thing for myself, but at some point I will... :)


Would make a great video @wendell


i agree

You could set up sirius, or you could use mycroft

I think he was talking about http://lucida.ai/ at the time. I am keen to try this when FreeNAS 10 rolls out with docker support. However I might need to beef up the hardware in my NAS.

It seems mycroft still has a cloud component for the recognition? Or is that just the picroft Raspberry Pi variant.

Does sirius function as a back end for lucida?

The website suggests it is the next version or generation of sirius..? I don't know myself, I have not played with it or delved into it yet.

@wendell spoke of a server with hundreds of gigabytes of ram which he was feeding when he was messing around with which he briefley mentioned in the tek, when the tek was still a thing.
