The SUSI AI project is inspired by personal assistants like Alexa Echo or Siri. However, the Open Source AI is programmed with Skills (AI Conversational Rules) by women in Vietnam and across Asia. Our goal is to make young women self-aware of their abilities, to encourage them to take part in technological development and take control of technology and their lives as artists, engineers, and developers or any way they like.

SUSI is capable of chat and voice interaction and by using APIS to perform actions such as music playback, making to-do lists, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, playing audiobooks, and providing weather, traffic, and other real time information. Additional functionalities can be added as console services using external APIs. Susi AI is able to answer questions and depending on the context will ask for additional information in order to perform the desired outcome. The core of the assistant is the Susi AI server that holds the "intelligence" and "personality" of Susi AI.
