If you use the Mycroft software, either with our hardware or your own, you might have noticed several recent updates. 18.02b was a major milestone for the project, and we’re working diligently toward our next major release, 18.08b. User input is what fuels progress here at Mycroft–whether that’s through testing, updating skills, or documentation feedback. In fact, a lot has been happening lately. Check out our pieces about Mozilla Deepspeech, the Pi Day release, and how you can help train a neural network.
We NEED your input, and would like to invite you to help us decide on the direction of our next major release. What do you want to see with the 18.08b release?
We are inviting our community to join CEO Joshua Montgomery as he works with Mycroft members and open up a discussion. What do you want Mycroft to be able to do?
