Ethical & libre voice recognition tech question, very vague: Are there applications/libraries out there that fit the description "beginner-friendly, approachable, hackable"? Quality can be subpar! :D
I spent some 3 hours on research and my findings so far are that there are capable FOSS projects out there which address ML scientists (i.e. not me), and then there is https://mycroft.ai/ which looks like a naive dystopic fantasy fulfillment with a pseudo-ethical facade (but I would love to be proven wrong about that).
