Google Assist on 96Boards

Introduction

96Boards OpenHours will be canceled this week. Please tune in next week! Add to your calendar here


The Google Assistant project aims at implementing Google Assistant using a DragonBoard 410c by 96Boards. Google Assistant, developed by Google in May 2016, acts as your virtual personal assistant and is available on a range of devices such as certain smart home appliances, your phone, wearables and more. The job of the assistant is to help the user with tasks such as carrying out searches on the internet, setting reminders or alarms etc. This year in April, Google released a software development kit (SDK) which allows third party developers to build their own Google Assistant on hardware of their choice. The SDK lets us add features such as hotword detection, voice control and natural language processing to devices of our choice. In this project we will make our own version of Google Assistant using a DragonBoard 410c, a mic and speakers.

Please checkout our instructions on how to recreate this awesome project in the 96Boards GitHub projects repository.

You can also find a fun walk through for this project done on the DragonBoard 410c in the 96Boards blogs pages. Links to both introduction and instruction blogs can be found in the "News and Blogs" section of this newsletter (just scroll down).

OpenHours Episode #61 -  Unfortunately, episode #61 of OpenHours will be canceled and moved to next week (07/13/2017).

Last week (June 29, 2017)

OpenHours Episode #60 -  After seeing a brand new mezzanine announced last week (D3 DesignCore Camera Mezzanine), we thought it fitting to announce yet another! Get ready for an exciting episode focused around this new add on for your 96Boards Consumer Edition lineup. On episode #60, we will be meeting with representatives from Arrow, Europe to talk about the soon to be made available Power over Ethernet (PoE) Mezzanine! We expect this new mezzanine will be a great addition to the 96Boards ecosystem! As the community gathers during these OpenHours, we hope many of you bring questions and feedback for our guests.
