Long story short

Who doesn’t like Jarvis, Eva, Johnny 5? We felt like the future that was promised, was never delivered. From a modest desire to turn on lights with one’s voice in our makerspace, grew something a little bigger.

More than one year and 27 sweaty iterations later, we successfully funded our Kickstarter as well as Indiegogo campaigns, and built our final production-ready prototype of our reference device Mark 1.

Since the start, we’ve been committed to open-sourcing our project, and we have no plans of changing our minds.

Open Source Artificial Intelligence

Where we’re going

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

Mycroft is a young digital assistant, but his open-source nature guarantees rapid growth of his intelligence. Eventually, Mycroft will become a general purpose artificial intelligence.

Our Inspiration

In his book, The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle introduced Sherlock Holmes’ older brother, Mycroft. According to the younger Holmes, Mycroft possessed a truly “great brain [in which] everything is pigeon-holed and can be handed out in an instant.” (The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans). About 100 years later, Robert A. Heinlein introduced readers to the HOLMES IV in The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. Here a computer serves as the Lunar Authority’s master machine charged

with monitoring and controlling the extraterrestrial colony’s operating systems. Nicknamed Mike, we soon learn that the system has developed not only a sense of self-awareness, but also a wicked sense of humor. Our Mycroft – your Mycroft – shares a little bit of what makes both these characters so memorable – brilliant powers of deduction, and the ability to interact with our surroundings. From 1866 to 1966… There’s no need to imagine what skills Mycroft might have tomorrow. The future is now!
