I’ve been messing with Mycroft for about a week now, focusing on using it mostly for my home automation setup. While I was using it, I thought it’d be great if it was possible to assign a number of wake words, and have mycroft pass that wake word when talking with other services.
As a use case, if I had a mycroft in each bedroom, the intent of me saying ‘turn on the fan’ is dependent on that room. If in my bedroom I called it Jarvis, it could turn on my fan. If the guest room is being used I could have them refer to it as mycroft, and it would operate the fan in the guest room using the same ‘turn on the fan’ command.
A similar setup would be neat for a number of other applications. I just started using mycroft with the remember the milk app. If I could add things to my list by calling it Jarvis, and my better half could add things to her list by calling it Mycroft, that’d be super useful. I like to hear the Fox news report, and she wants to hear CNN. My pandora stations are different then hers. So on and so forth. I imagine there are a ton of similar skills that are tailored for an individual but are being used in a household setting.
