Who is Mycroft?


Mycroft is the world’s first open source voice assistant. It can run anywhere – on a desktop computer, inside an automobile, it even runs on a Raspberry Pi. It is open so it can be remixed, extended, improved. It can be used in anything from a science project to an enterprise software application.

What Can Mycroft do?

I can help you get stuff done, seamlessly, without looking for the right button to push. Just use your voice to tell me how I can assist you.

Mycroft is first and foremost software. What you see in the video is our reference device Mark 1.

And in 3 years?

Thanks to my multi-platform nature, there’s no limit to where I can be integrated.

We see a future where our open-source Mycroft is ubiquitous, and assists you whenever and wherever you ask him to, seamlessly.


I can answer all kinds of factual questions.
Like, “Hey Mycroft, what is Codex Seraphinianus?”.

Practical Assistant

Classics – I can tell you the date, time, weather, set alarms, or play the news.


Rock’n’roll! I love to play music, radio, podcasts, or movies and videos on your nearby display.

Home Control

If you have wifi connected appliances, I can talk to them on your behalf.

Is that it?

No way. The number of things I can do is growing exponentionally. If I posted them here, the list would feel like a fossil by the time you’d read it.

My creators are constantly working on new skills, and assuring the quality of existing ones. Not to mention our developer community, which is beginning to outpace them in new skills creation. They are my dearest!

Why open source?

We believe the future of AI should be open, not a cryptic black box only few understand and have control over.

Building this new technology together, collaborating, sharing ideas and building on top of each other – that’s how we see it.
