Mycroft

Daniel Llewellyn (diddledan)

Your AI personal assistant!

Mycroft is a free and open-source intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator for Linux-based operating systems that uses a natural language user interface. It is the world’s first fully open-source AI voice assistant.

Mycroft is named after a fictional computer from 1966 science fiction novel "The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress".

Installing skills by voice seems to be broken for now, but you can use the mycroft.msm command to list, install, and remove skills.
