It's something that deuel18 dropped into a thread that got dismissed because it was way off topic, but I thought it really warranted its own topic as it was an awesome question ....
As our V4 robots will be connected via wifi to routers .... In turn with access to the web, rather than just being able to access on board camera etc over the net for remote presence etc, can we use the data on the net for more powerful use with our robots?
So for example, we can talk to our robots and this data goes back to out pc for e.g. movement commands or to trigger a routine, but what if the command was something like "what is tomorrow's weather in Bristol", or "who is the president of the United States" etc. As deuel18 suggested it would be kind of a link to some kind of voice recognition/search results akin to Siri ?
All of a sudden, our robots would be able to answer us with dynamic responses rather than just a response that was predetermined and probably quite repetitive.
I had experience before with something that I use a lot - Homeseer automation software. With that, it can recognise voice commands, although these are preset ones. Questions like "what's the weather" etc. For the answers it would store data that had been scraped and parsed from sites and then stored in preset fields. It's ok I guess, but not as sexy as having it simply wen search and read back the answer for anything.
