Comparison of Voice Assistant SDKs for Embedded Linux Devices

Millions of smart speakers powered by Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa were sold in the past couple of years. This product category provides a bridge between AI and IoT. It has a huge potential and the market is expected to continue to grow. In the meantime, there is also an increased demand for integration of voice assistants in other home appliances.

This session explores the available SDKs for integration in embedded Linux systems of Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa as well as their open source alternative Mycroft. We deep dive into compatibility, feature support and hardware requirement. In order to better understand the current state of each SDK, we examine the exact steps for quick prototyping of new products with low-cost single board computers like Raspberry Pi and Orange Pi Zero.
