Where did Charlie project go?


#1

Hi all,
I’m new here, Hoping to be in the right place…, I have a question:

One year ago sir Tim Berners-Lee announced project Charlie (“decentralized version of Alexa”), source:

Quoting from the article:

“Inrupt’s mission, at this point, is to bring resources, process and skills to galvanize the open-source effort that Tim was leading out of MIT to help [Solid] become, truly, a force to be reckoned with,” he added. “We are at the stage of the new web that Tim was at when he first started the World Wide Web.”

Bruce says that since Berners-Lee announced inrupt in late September, open-source developers have poured into the Solid platform in droves.

Now, the pair are gearing up to raise another round of funding, hire, expand the Solid platform and work on a digital assistant tool called Charlie, which the company describes as a “decentralized version of Alexa.”

Now, I’m a confused.
Maybe someone here can help me get some more info/ something to read about the Charlie project?
What0s the correlation between Charlie with Solid/Inrupt?

BTW, I’m interested in distributed virtual assistants and I’m a big fan of the related project Almond:

Thanks
