Making a Google Assistant.....

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone, 

I was wondering if it was posable to make a Google Assistant and I don't know how I would do it.

If I find something that could be able to help other people I will post it here...

thanks -cam

You're talking about creating an AI assistant from scratch? It's not happening without a large team of engineers, developers, stacks of hardware and about a billion dollars in seed money.

I've been thinking about working on a project like this for a while.

 

https://www.adafruit.com/product/4080

 

I figure that could be a good starting point, then after getting that base bit going I wanted to look seeing how much stuff I could route through open source speech to text software using google services as a fallback. I think its doable, to different degrees depending on how much work goes into it.

Probably don't bother. Making an AI is not a 5 minute exercise, and a Google Home mini is not that expensive.

From the research of done into it so far it can mostly be done with off the shelf software. There seem to be a few decent speech to text programs that can be used, though i still have to pick up that kit off adafruit. I want to try and custom bake my own whole set at some point but that one seems good for a starting point.

I assume the project is more of a tinkering thing than you actually needing an AI assistant? :)

I was thinking of doing something similar a while back though not exactly AI per se.

I was looking at using pre-programmed phrases for specific tasks and using AWS Transcribe(speech recognition) / AWS Polly(text to speech)

May be something you're interested in x]
