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.

Mycroft AI General Applications


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.

Mycroft's Skills

The number of things I can do is growing exponentially. If I posted them here, the list would feel like a fossil by the time you’d read it.

Control Your Data

Mycroft is the first assistant that embraces the concept of user agency. Our platform is here to serve it’s users not to mine data. By default, Mycroft does not store queries or other sensitive data.

We are also committed to creating a technology that can be altered, extended and customized by both enthusiasts and commercial enterprises. By being open with the software and, importantly, the data, we have built a strong global community of developers and industry partners.


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.
