While I think Project Alice is really awesome and you created a big set of very impressive features I’m not quite sure what the advantage of that specific feature is. It is awesome to see, that this is possible, but the use case makes me worry:
It removes the store from the process and makes it harder to find apps. It even adds a little bit more required command line. I would love something like “Hey Alice, install the time app”
The only advantage I can see at the moment, is, that the training data is on github as well, and other people can contribute. But wouldn’t a “submit training data” function on the existing snips console be more convenient and quite simple to add for snips? Maybe with reviews and voting on the training data. Or just the possibility to link a github just like for the code.
To me it sounds like a hard split between two standards with the same goals, do I use Alice or the original snips tools? To be honest I was hoping for a deeper integration in the existing tools. I guess it is still possible to add apps from the store as well, right?
What if I have to reset my raspy, will it be able to load everything from the snips console and will be running just like before, or do I have to set it up again?
For me a big plus for snips is, after the initial setup, I can just click on an app, trigger the update on the assistant (possible per voice command as well) and everything is set. Basically, after I set it up for my parents just once, they can do everything on their own
Sorry for so many questions and concerns, I’m sure you got the right answers and the trailer was just leading me to false conclusions ^^
