The project idea has appeared while I was watching Google I/O 2018 conference and there was a talk about Google Assistant.
The main idea is that Google implemented the assistant into all their devices. Then they gave an access to console that allows to create your own assistant to make it perform commands both specific for one user and a group. It could be a "smart" house module and people could manage appliances, lightning, etc. from all over the world with Internet connection. Or there's a tendency in IT companies to create different bots on complete platforms (VKBotAPI, TelegramBotAPI) that can teach new employees by text requests. Google made it possible to create the same bot but with voice control feature.
