@NadineJ: When I think about the gender of voices in a smartphone AI, I always think about male voices. It?s hard to choose between the two, but I think male voices selection should be made. I personally like the voice of the Nanosuit 1.0 from the Crysis video game series. It has an extremely soothing macho voice. You really get goose bumps when you choose cloak to hide from aliens and it bellows ?Cloak Engaged? while the aliens move past you without noticing you.
AIs come with predefined knowledge and newer knowledge can be updated through software patches, but what about being taught by the user? I think mobile AIs should include a system that allows it to be taught things by users, like we teach a baby so that it can communicate with us appropriately. This can either be voice commanded or can be through a slight programming of the inputs.
They not only made everything 100% open source but are always there to help the users to deal with their queries so that anyone can setup his own Jasper without any difficulties.
Providing tech support is a huge plus - everything about this project makes it ideal for exciting interest in technology. I could see this as a cool project for in high school classrooms or electronic clubs.
They not only made everything 100% open source but are always there to help the users to deal with their queries so that anyone can setup his own Jasper without any difficulties. Good software developers can also contribute to Jasper by adding their expertise to the project and integrating things that are missing. It is indeed a very nice customizable project for everyone.
What I love most is the affordability and the DIY aspect. Both of these qualities make it an ideal project for getting people excited about technology and it is just plain fun - I am going to suggest it to my teenage son. The only thing I don't like is the robotic voice is hard to understand, but you can't argue with the price and that would only go up if it were improved...kudos to these young men for both their accomplishment and their desire to share it!
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
