Speech Recognition using the Raspberry Pi

Speech Recognition using the Raspberry Pi
I've finally received my Raspberry Pi, and I've immediately gotten to work transferring the speech recognition system I used for the robotic arm to the pi. Due to its small size and low power requirements, the Raspberry Pi is an excellent platform for the Julius open-source speech recognition system. This opens up almost limitless possibilities for voice command applications. EDIT: I am no longer working on Julius/HTK for speech recognition. Please see this post for more information. There do exist commercial offerings of electronic voice command modules, as well as voice command applications appearing in recent smartphones (i.e. In this tutorial, I will be demonstrating how to use the Raspberry Pi for a simple speech recognition system to control the Maplin USB Robotic Arm. Requirements: Raspberry Pi set up and running debian (please follow setup instructions from and preferably connected to the internetUSB microphone Loading Drivers sudo modprobe snd_bcm2835 Software .

iGuardian - The Home Internet Security System by Itus Networks — Kickstarter iGuardian is the world’s first Internet protection system designed specifically for home use. Almost every day you can read headlines about cyber-attacks or online threats. Cybercriminals are constantly improving their attack methods to become more sophisticated and difficult to detect. Everyone knows to be careful when clicking on links in emails or opening files. Unfortunately, that is no longer enough.

How to create a time lapse video with Raspberry Pi After installing a Pi camera module and capturing pictures and videos with raspistill and raspivid commands, I wanted to create a time lapse video of the nice scenery that I have in the back of my apartment. For those who don't know what it is, time-lapse video (or often-called time-lapse photography) is a shooting technique where contiguous photo frames of a changing scene are captured for an extended period of time in a much lower rate than a typical video frame rate. When the collected frames are played back in a faster frame rate, it creates a so-called "time-lapsing" effect. You might already have seen stunning looking night-to-day time-lapses or fast moving clouds on TV.

pyector - ECTOR learning chatterbot in Python ECTOR is a learning chatterbot. pyECTOR is its python version. ECTOR learns from what people say. It is based on an artificial intelligence architecture, that is inspired from Copycat, an AI system from Mitchell and Hofstadter. The Concept Network it uses is a mix between neural and semantic networks.

No parsing, no cleverness, just a training file and output. It first trains itself on a text and then later uses the data from that training to generate responses to the interlocutor’s input.

How to Customize XBMC 12 Frodo with All the Bells and Whistles Kodi (formerly known as XBMC) is a great entertainment center software. But, here’s the deal: Like many other open source projects, it is driven by a very technical community, and it is not necessarily user-friendly enough for the average person to use and customize. Fortunately, with a bit of time and the right skin, you can set things up properly and make Kodi (XBMC) very user-friendly and rock solid.
