    In order to initialize the voice AI, we’ll need both Porcupine (.ppn) and Rhino (.rhn) model files. Picovoice has made several pre-trained Porcupine and pre-trained Rhino models available on the Picovoice GitHub repositories. For this Barista app, we’re going to use the trigger phrase Hey Barista and the Coffee Maker context.

    I asked them to support Pi Pico, but it seems my petition would need more support from the community.

    I know about PicoVoice ! They support a Cortex M4 Arduino board : Nano 33 BLE Sense. But that board is out of stock for over an year. We can do pretty cool stuff with it like this.
  • Is it possible to self host a voice assistant?

    Consider looking at https://github.com/mozilla/DeepSpeech , you can get pre-compiled versions of it and there are versions that will run on a Raspberry Pi, and yes... it's all local, but your mileage may vary. And there is also https://picovoice.ai/ they run stuff locally on the machine, but again each use a constrained local language model/syntax. The other real question, as https://www.reddit.com/user/eduncan911/ correctly states is the use of the wake-word... most systems process all sound, ie. are listening all the time, a number of the Alexa or Google Assistants or similar approaches embed a smaller model or use hardware/neural networks to recognize the wake-word before passing on sound to further syntax processing, so think of most of these devices as always listening and processing and you'd be right, so factor that into power usage etc.
