I too am trying to build not only a voice command database that will accept an endlessly growing amount of commands I would program but I have become very interested in mapping out my home with X and Y mapping so the computer understands where you are at any given time.

The need for this comes when you provide a voice command the computer knows which speakers to route the response to along with which room is to be affected by the command. Say if you speak a command to adjust the lighting; the computer takes in your X and Y, realizes you are in the kitchen and it adjusts the lights in that area.

Either way, I would love to see some source code for this. I see this is mainly linux based. I use Windows and am in the process of writing my own voice recognition software that can grow with me as I need for it to.

I would just love to be contacted by other that are interested in the same thing(s).


One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
