Welcome to the Open Conversational AI Community!

Announcing the completed migration in February 2024 of the Mycroft AI community to the Open Conversational AI community at Community.OpenConversational.AI

Dear Former Mycroft Community Forum Members,

In 2017 Mycroft’s vision of “AI for Everyone” brought together this amazing development community, and our shared vision of open source conversational AI is still being realized. As you know, Neon AI and OpenVoiceOS have taken up the “torch” of development for the private personal voice assistant project that Mycroft started, including moderating and supporting users on this forum. We share Mycroft’s mission of putting private, personal, conversational AI within reach of everyone. For that, this community must grow beyond the bounds of Mycroft AI’s projects.

To support his goal, we have transformed the Mycroft forum into the Open Conversational AI forum, a collaborative space where community members of all privacy-respecting projects related to conversational AI are welcome. This forum will continue to welcome the community that has grown up around Mycroft AI, Neon AI, and OpenVoiceOS. We simply intend to welcome additional related projects into the fold.

Hosting and moderation for this community is now being handled by Neon AI. You won’t need to make a new account, nor change any of your login information, but you will need to log in again. Mycroft’s forum only retained encrypted passwords, so your password has never been shared. You will be able to use your current email to reset your password if you’ve forgotten it. You will still be able to login using your Gmail or GitHub account. Please email Clary@Neon.AI if you have any trouble getting back onto the forum.

Respecting your data privacy, including the email address you have used to register here, was a prime consideration in our planning. We at Neon AI hope we’ve earned your trust throughout our seven year relationship with Mycroft AI, including by developing open source software that respects your privacy.

In the future, we plan to send quarterly newsletters to users who participate in this community. We will not share your email.

Here is what that means:

  1. We will include returning community participants in the quarterly community newsletter mailing list - of course you can opt out at any time.
  2. After the migration of the forum, this globally pinned topic will appear alerting users that the forum is now hosted by Neon AI.
  3. The old forum address will be forwarded here for as long as possible.

Thank you for joining us in the Open Conversational AI Community! We look forward to working together with community members like you in 2024, and to continue advancing privacy respecting open source conversational AI tools, applications and devices.

Happy 2024,

The Neon AI Team
