Jasper, a customizable, open-source platform for developing voice-controlled applications for the Raspberry Pi, is basically Siri’s super cool cousin, via Raspberrypi.org. Jasper’s developers are Charlie Marsh & Shubhro Saha, two BSE students at Princeton University.
Jasper already comes with modules to deal with things like time, weather, Gmail, playing your Spotify music, news (and what’s on Hacker News)…and knock knock jokes. You can build your own modules to add more functionality. We’re really impressed by how well-documented Jasper is; new developers should be able to get to grips with building on the platform very easily, and we’re looking forward to watching what you guys get up to with it.
