How To Transform Your Raspberry Pi into a Voice Assistant Using VoiceGPT

It’s Sunday, and you find yourself on your usual DIY mission, holding a screwdriver and contemplating the purpose of your screw. Suddenly, a question about the type of dowel to use pops into your mind. You need a quick answer, but your hands are occupied, and your family, as usual, seems uninterested in your presence.

So, how can you avoid dropping everything and searching for the information on your PC, which often leads to accidental visits to unrelated websites? Well, here’s the solution: VoiceGPT. It’s an intelligent voice assistant powered by ChatGPT that can help you find the answers you need without straining yourself or reaching for your smartphone across the room.

You’ll need a Raspberry Pi 4 and a Python script for this DIY project. The script will utilize a USB microphone to listen to your voice and play the audio through the Google Cloud Speech-to-Text API, converting your frantic voice into text.

The resulting text will then be sent to ChatGPT, generating a response. The response will be converted back into audio to complete the loop and transmitted directly to your ears, allowing you to listen to it without hassle.

Please note that while this project may be technically feasible, it’s important to consider privacy and security implications when working with voice recordings and cloud services. Additionally, be cautious about maintaining clean and hygienic conditions for your ears.

So, you won’t need a lot of hardware, but you’ll have the equivalent of an Alexa-connected speaker, Google Home, and similar devices. However, the difference is that it’ll be much more powerful, thanks to ChatGPT.
