About this event

This event has changed to a zoom format and will be held on September 23rd beginning at 6:30pm. It will begin with an interview with Joshua and conclude with Q&A from the audience. 

Joshua Montgomery founded Mycroft AI in early 2015. Since that time, he has done two successful Kickstarter campaigns, graduated from both Tech Stars and 500 Startups accelerators, raised $3 million in equity capital, and delivered the world’s first open-source voice assistant. He, the Mycroft team, and a growing group of volunteer developers have been busy contributing to both the open-source software project and delivering smart speaker and smart display devices that focus on user security along with functionality. Montgomery points to Android as an example of where open source technology increasingly outperforms closed systems. In the voice assistant space, he sees Amazon, Google, and others all following the closed system iOS-like approach of the mobile ecosystem, with Mycroft as the leading open-source alternative. Mycroft may be looking up at the giants of technology today but is clearly a company to watch that could disrupt the entire sector if the scalability and customization options take off with developers.
