So while I have started following the Mycroft project with some Enthusiasm to what it can do, the one thing which has become apparent with many of the artificial assistant type devices like Cortana/Siri/Google/Jasper is the lack of identification of an individual user speaking to it.
I wondered if as part of the develop of this AI if it might be a problem that can be solved to get the best user experience.
Having watched a lot of Star Trek recently (working through the Voyager boxed set at the moment) what was interesting is that the ships computer can identify where people are but doesnt recognise individuals speaking to it most of the time, however me and my better half were sat chatting about it, as even she thought the whole multimycroft system looked cool and were thinking does each unit perhaps need to have an enquiry built in to some of it to identify the user?
Something like lighting is obviously user irrelevant, but if you said to a unit “hey mycroft whats my calendar looking like today” surely it would only look at the default setup account?
I guess we also considered some of the personalisation that comes with it, like the tiny things you find on Facebook and google that identify you and your interests, like what the weather is going to be where you normally are on that day, a relationship type thing where it identifies you “Hello Dave” “I’m sorry I cant do that Dave”.
I still have alot of reading and understanding to do yet, maybe I missed something yet, but I just wondered if this is something that needs to be included in an AI?
