    A Program like J.A.R.V.I.S.

    Im there a way to get a program like Jarvis from Iron Man? I can make my own if someone can give me an idea of where to start. Maybe like a program I could play around with and edit. I plan on putting in a bunch of my own if, then, echo statements. Im just not sure what file or program I would edit.

    -Thanks

    It doesnt have to be able to carry on a huge conversation with me, I just want it to be able to answer questions. Like what is today? Whats the wether for the next 2 days? I would also like it if it could look up things on the internet for me. Like if I said "what happened during WWII?" It would look up wikipedia and read everything to me.

    I would also like it to remember things I say. Like if I said "I just paid my bill online, the confirmation code is ##whatever##". And lets say two weeks later I need the confirmation code. Id like to say, "whats was the confirmation code I gave you two weeks ago?". And it read it back to me.

    It would be cool. I had the same idea when i saw the first movie.

    But saying that you want just a J.A.R.V.I.S. like program is just too general . Please become more specific , what functionality would jarvis have , with the current technology.

    Some functions that first come to mind is , to find something in the web , a youtube video , a wiki , etc , with voice input from the user and voice response from the program.

    How about making something that responded to voice commands, could read off twitter and fb updates and possibly was integrated with Wolfram Alpha or Wikipedia.

    The voice integration is key here. Make a a virtual butler

    The key to have a J.A.R.V.I.S like program is to first have speech recognition in linux.

    I and some of my friends have developed a speech recognition software called VEDICS (Voice Enabled Desktop Interaction and Control System). It lets the user access any element found on the users screen (accessing files, to links, to buttons... anything). You can find the demo screencasts:

    Accessing the panel menu and applications:

    Changing theme and background:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRgX94qGj3g

    Navigating directories and playing songs:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVQwAoeIavk

    Running a slide show:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtzA8TFwvuI

    Running default applications and window operations:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCEANbu8p50

    Stopping and starting vedics:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLFtdrlt3lM

    Creating and deleting files:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3CFAl22h2o

    We still have to create an installer. So it would probably be more than a month before we release it. In the meantime you can browse the source code at : http://sourceforge.net/projects/vedics/

    JARVIS?? hmm... this is something i am sure our team can actually do. May be not immediately, but, say in another 2 years.

    Re: A Program like J.A.R.V.I.S.

    @rao.nischal,
    I am interested and following your progress and I must say that I'm impressed so far. I think my biggest goal with a Jarvis like program would be to have control over the command line.

    If I can get it to recognize key words it could then compile that into a command. I also really would love if it could remember the things I say and be able to recall them later.

    Like If I needed to give my download folder some free space I would say:
    "Jarvis, clean out my downloads folder" Jarvis translates to:
    sudo rm -rf Downloads
    sudo mkdir Downloads

    "Jarvis, tell me about WWII"
    sudo apt-get install lynx-cur
    lynx http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II

    Jarvis would then start at about line 10 and read it all to me.
