The AVA project
goal is to create an interactive Operating System Interface (OSI) to replace
the current, antiquated icon/window environment we are all too familiar with.
The technologies are out there and waiting for us to take the next step in
computing. The intent is to get us away from the desktop or laptop environment
of confinement and complacency.
This new open
source OSI will feature a voice responsive Automated Virtual Assistant
(AVA) to do the actual computing tasks. The version 'A' female character,
affectionately known as AVA, will be the interface between the user and the
computer. She will handle everything from simple dictation of documents,
to personal schedules, to complex computing tasks.
won't change much... Just how we use it.
Ava is still
very much in the design phase with some conceptual designs and animations.
If you would like to help with this project (and/or hate windows products),
send me an email and let me know what you want to work on. There are so many
facets to this project that one person can't do it alone.
