we are a group of three IT students who want to work on voice assistants for an ethics seminar in the scope of showing malicious misuse of AI. We stumbled upon Mycroft, finding it quite interesting considering it being open source and thus being quite adaptable to our needs.
However, since we don’t have much experience working with voice assistants, we’d have a few initial questions before starting to work on our project.
- Is it possible to adjust the Wake Word Listener (either Precise or PocketSphinx) so that you listen constantly without having to say any Wake Word at all?
- Does the intent parser recognize which person talks to the speaker right now? Or does it recognize certain names of the household?
You’d really help us if you could answer these. If we ask “Is it possible […] ?” we also refer to this being in the scope of a university seminar and us being able to work on this for 3 months only with limited time.
Thanks for your help
