Overview of the SXSW 2019

We had a wonderful experience in SXSW 2019 Austin, the world’s largest gathering of creative professionals ! We found ourselves surrounded by inspiring people focused by looking into the future and making the world a better place through technology and innovation.

Our President, Alexandre Zapolsky, and our Vice President, Céline Zapolsky attended SXSW to spread our vision, a ‘ThirdDigital Way’, more ethical, more inclusive, more sustainable. To do so, we presented LinTO, the first Open Source smart assistant that keeps your data safe and private.

“We need to find a way to have a digital ecosystem able to support our values and the society that we want”

Our Press Release

LINAGORA, the french Open Source key-player, is very pleased to introduce the latest version of LinTO, an Open Source Smart Assistant, and to share its vision of a ‘Third Digital Way’, at South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Festivals(March 8-17th, Austin, Texas).

LinTO is a free and Open Source Smart Voice Assistant, designed by LINAGORA.

LinTO is designed to understand your voice, and help your company to improve its productivity throughout the entire day, and especially during meetings.

All source code is available, it is free and will always remain it.

Privacy, customization, and openness are the key features of LinTO.

You can deploy LinTO in your own infrastructure and the Speech To Text is processed locally without any data centralized within the cloud. It is GAFAM*-free, and respects your privacy. Your data never leaves your IT system and cannot be used for commercial purposes.

LinTO is based on an Open Source hardware Platform, OpenPAAS (open-paas.org) : you can extend the core features set to fit customers business needs.

You can create all the commands you need. For example, LinTO can interact with OpenPaaS, LINAGORA’s Open Source collaborative platform, to manage your business meetings, IoT devices, e-mails, automated transcriptions and much more.

LinTO is smart, it knows your use cases and can be trained with business-aware lexical.

LinTO is EU GDPR Compliant, and multilingual (French, English and more languages will be launched soon).

Today, LinTO is engaged in pilot projects with major banks and institutions (EDF, Air France, Société Générale…)

LINAGORA’s secret tip – its new extension Open Source board – will be shown. This board extends a Raspberry Pi compute module functionalities and makes it a true audio processing device.

At the SXSW 2019, come and meet with Alexandre Zapolsky (President and co-Founder), and Céline Zapolsky (Executive Vice-President), to see a public demonstration of LinTO, and to share our vision of a ‘Third Digital Way’, more ethical, more inclusive, and more sustainable !
