This is a guest post by the Mycroft team as part of "the startup stories", a series of blog posts about how and why innovative companies are using Ubuntu technology. If you work in technology you've probably had this dream. You wake up and your whole house is a computer, a starship in cyberspace that listens to you, understands you, and performs tasks effortlessly. Mycroft A.I. is achieving that dream using Snappy Ubuntu Core. Mycroft is an open source / open hardware project that is working to bring natural language recognition and Internet of Things (IoT) integration to homes and offices everywhere.
