Volumio, the most popular Audiophile Music Player distribution for the famous credit-card-size Raspberry PI computer, with more than 160k users worldwide is about to launch its widely anticipated cloud ecosystem: MyVolumio, which will allow music lovers to enjoy their Hi Resolution music collections leveraging all new possibilities offered by cloud computing.
MyVolumio has seen a number of HI-Level partnerships during its development phase, such as the increasingly popular QOBUZ Music Streaming Service and connectivity provider startup Serveo.
Volumio is happy to announce that CloudConstable is joining the team of innovators to elevate MyVolumio capabilities to a new level by introducing their AI technology into the mix.
CloudConstable is competing in the $5 Million IBM Watson AI XPRIZE, a global competition challenging teams to develop and demonstrate how humans can collaborate with powerful AI technologies to tackle the world’s Grand Challenges. CloudConstable’s goal is to make the world a better place by connecting family & friends and enabling their sharing of digital content, while protecting them from cyberthreats. Our animated AI superhero, CloudGirl, is the social conscience of our social network.
- Working with MyVolumio to bring AI Assistant voice skills to the leading Cloud based music player platform is a foundational first step towards delivering the full promise of our protective collaboration platform. We’re proud to work with the Volumio team to help make AI part of the music listening experience of users around the world! - said Michael Pickering, CEO of CloudConstable.
The goal of such cooperation is to bring Volumio users the ability to discover and experience their music collection simply talking to a AI voice operated assistant: say and play, as some will call it.
But of course, the quest of Volumio and CloudConstable for the next musical experience will not stop there: being Volumio an Open Source project with a vibrant and active community the development of features of this new AI assistant will be tailored to the effective needs of users, by listening to their wishes, ideas, suggestions and concerns.
This has therefore all the potential to bring disruptive applications of Artificial Intelligence in the media industry.
- We are really excited to work together with CloudConstable to craft the music listening experiences of tomorrow. I definitely see a huge innovation potential within the mix of CloudConstable’s AI expertise and our tradition of community-driven feature design - said Michelangelo Guarise, Volumio CEO.
The AI service provided by CloudConstable will be made available as a free, open beta to all MyVolumio subscribers starting from later this year.

It might be quick and useful in some circumstances but it's a witness to *everything* that goes on within the hearing range of the device. At some point, *someone* will gain access to it for reasons that I don't know or approve of; that's just the sloppy nature of the cloud. Note how small the sales of smart speakers are in China. That's not lack of money, it's simply that they want some part of their life to be private from the government.
