The goal of the LinTO project was to develop a conversational assistant for businesses that allows its users to control a variety of services with their voices. An extension of the collaborative platform OpenPaaS, the LinTO assistant has been designed to accompany employees throughout their daily tasks and interactions.
Research and development in the LinTO project pursued two paths. The first was to create functionalities common to personal assistants, allowing users to use their voice to read their mails, consult their agendas, open and share documents, search for information and so on. The second consisted in developing advanced options to produce high-quality transcriptions of full multi-party conversations and follow conversational exchanges in order to take notes, produce relevant real time recommendations, and automatically generate meeting minutes.
LinTO has been developed both as a device that runs on the Raspberry Pi (or other ARM smart boards) and as an open-source platform that can be deployed, adapted or maintained either directly on a company’s premises or remotely as a service (SaaS).
