Greetings, I am the author (www.BruceShields.us/home) of the Pandemic Dawn novel Series, and in my novels, there are self-aware robots, what I am looking to do is build one of the characters from my series, which I have already started 3D printing the parts, and fit it with a simple Q&A A.I. that will work offline, and have a programmable database I can access and add information to.
I am going to use this robot as a display, and would ultimately like it to be able to answer simple questions, such as “Who is Taylor?” and the response would simply speak the database I add. If there is no information in the database to answer a question, then a simple “I don’t know that.”
A female voice is a must, and it would be nice if the A.I. could trigger certain videos on command to play on a local ipad or laptop, to show my promotional videos for each book.
I have worked with raspberry pi before (I’m no expert) but muddled my way through (I follow instructions pretty well) and I didn’t like the results of some of the other systems, especially since this display will have zero wifi or net connectivity.
I saw a kit on the website, is there a tutorial that would guide me through making an offline A.I. that works with my database only with the option to control the playing of external videos on a laptop?
Thanks for any leads in advance.
