Add a voice to your home while protecting your family’s privacy.
Snips AIR is a network of devices collaborating to form a mesh of AI assistants. This enables your entire home to be seamlessly voice-enabled, while protecting your family’s privacy. As Snips AIR runs locally without any voice data being sent to the cloud, no-one can spy on you or your kids, keeping your home private as it should be.
Anyone can build an AIR device, either by implementing the underlying protocol, or simply by integrating the Snips voice assistant in their product. We are launching a Snips device in 2019, consisting of a base station (AIR Base) and portable microphones (AIR Satellites).
The AIR Base is a powerful hub capable of executing voice apps. Voice input is streamed from the AIR Satellites to the AIR Base for local processing. It is the "brain" of the Snips AIR system. It is running Debian, and is fully customizable. The main purpose of the AIR Base is to do the heavy processing of voice queries and handle app execution, so that less powerful AIR devices can just forward their queries to it.
The AIR satellite is a battery-powered, MCU-based portable microphone. It enables you to control your devices with voice, wherever you are in your home. It is tactile and context-aware, enabling multimodal interactions such as dimming the lights in the room you are in by swiping up and down. Switching context is as simple as asking it to: “Hey Snips, switch to the music app!”
Snips AIR comes packed with powerful built-in apps. They were trained using our data generation technology, ensuring a high degree of understanding.
Add new capabilities to your Snips AIR by choosing from a large selection of community-built apps. The Snips app store runs on top of a blockchain, ensuring anonymous, decentralized transactions between you and app makers.
Snips AIR Roadmap
The app store and AIR mesh protocol are already mostly implemented and will be launched throughout the summer 2018. As for AIR modules, we plan on launching the AIR Base and AIR Satellites by Christmas 2019.
