I've been following this larger project, which also endeavors to create 
a completely open-source artificial assistant for the linux desktop and 
a stand-alone device. And they also want to create an open-source 
massive natural language processing engine for multiple languages. It is 
a great ambition, but I'm slightly less optimistic than they are that it 
will soon be functional.
