Hello Mycroft Community,
I would like to make you aware of the research project COALA that uses Mycroft to build a Digital Intelligent Assistant for manufacturing. We started last year with a generous grant from the European Union’s research program Horizon 2020 and just finished our requirements analysis phase. Our consortium will build and evaluate prototypes for augmented analytics and on-the-job training in the next 2.5 years.
COALA’s development roadmap foresees that we enhance the Mycroft core and the Android App with features needed in factories. On top of our list are these features:
- Securing the Mycroft message bus and interaction with the App.
- Integrate QR code reading in the App to use this data in conversations.
- Integrating image uploads in the App to use them in conversations.
- Improve the user experience when uttering web links and other view-only data.
We would like to align with the Mycroft team and any other Mycroft enthusiast out there. Soon, the COALA team will create forks in GitHub, update the project’s website to share our requirements, and ramp up the development work. Check our website or get in contact via Twitter and LinkedIn.
