Today, I show you how you can create your own virtual assistant, similar to Google Now and Amazon Alexa, using a Raspberry Pi, and some cool open source software called Jasper!
I go through the hardware needed, the software, installation of jasper, the configuration, and finally, a demo of the usage at the end. If you would like to see a follow-up to this video, about creating your own modules, make sure to leave a comment down below!
These times may be off by a bit now, after I re-edited the video.
