Akira can serve not only as a perfect home assistant but also
as a secured system with intrusion detection capability
through single voice command.
Akira would serve as a boon for old age people and can be
used in diverse fields.
Thus it can be concluded that Akira is the necessity of the
hour and has huge potential market with social utility.
