#Snips is an upcoming open privacy-friendly alternative to invasive voice assistants like Siri or Alexa.
Instead of sending your voice to be processed elsewhere, the processing happens offline on the device itself:
It's not yet ready for ordinary users, but there's an official site for developers/hobbyists who want to have a go at making their own Snips device:
@switchingsocial So now i am going to follow the progress on Snips and Mycroft.
I don't think Mycroft works offline though?
@switchingsocial I think so too but hey better then nothing.
@switchingsocial ha you know, I was just thinking about this the other day.
@switchingsocial The website kinda sucks.
I don't quite follow. That's an order form for development kit hardware?
You don't have to use it, the software is open source.
@switchingsocial There is a lot of text that goes off the right hand side.
Ah, fair enough. I guess they haven't designed it properly for mobiles :/
Yeah, it is too hidden really. I had to do an internet search to find it.
ahhh! that does explain it.
unfortunately, not a unique anti-pattern
