Go and back the Mycroft Kickstarter campaign

by | Sun 30 Aug 2015

*Disclaimer: I am not a member of the Mycroft team, but I think this is neat and an important example of open innovation that needs support.*

[Mycroft](https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aiforeveryone/mycroft-an-open-source-artificial-intelligence-for) is an Open Source, Open Hardware, Open APIs product that you talk to and it provides information and services. It is a wonderful example of open innovation at work.

They are running a [kickstarter campaign](https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aiforeveryone/mycroft-an-open-source-artificial-intelligence-for) that is pretty close to the goal, but it needs further backers to nail it.



I recorded a short video about why I think this is important. You can watch it [here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZujfUHIaAXM).

I encourage you to go and [back the campaign](https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aiforeveryone/mycroft-an-open-source-artificial-intelligence-for). This kind of open innovation across technology, software, hardware, and APIs is how we make the world a better and more hackable place.
