Mycroft AI is the privacy focused voice assistant created by Mycroft's co-founder Joshua Montgomery. He wanted to voice enable our makerspace. He couldnโ€™t find any open source solutions that worked so he built the first prototype. Mycroft has grown its community to over 60,000 members to date. We have a dedicated team and a large open source community fighting to make sure that privacy and open-source solutions exist. The field is exciting as it is the fastest adopted technology currently.
