The Maverick Project

The Maverick Project

 
 

My most ambitious project to date…

Maverick is an ongoing project and will be for some time. Maverick is my personal assistant in early stages of development and is growing weekly, with new features added and useability improved.

Maverick is rather intelligent, in that it mimics natural language processing, while still keeping it fast and its responses brief, which helps the assistant feel more like a companion than a tool.

Mavericks main quest is to put the personal in to personal assistant, while still have as much functionality as I can add in the most natural way possible.

Later down the line, Maverick will be able to interface with MANY technologies such as smart glasses, augmented reality headsets, my entire house and maybe even a car. This will keep maverick with you and make having him arround very natural.

Maverick is completely written in C#, and is running on my PC, and my phone. I use Xamarin to develop the I/O app for my phone that can run in the background, and with this, I use it to communicate with my PC though TCP, and my PC is what does all the hard work (like email look ups and neural network processing) which saves resources on my phone and saves battery life.

For more information, watch the video above showing off some examples of what he can do at this stage.
