We live in an era where we have powerful digital devices at our hands. In our busy lives, we can take help of technology to save time, by automating tasks of our life. But interacting with technology can be a challenge for people not very familiar with technology. Methods of interaction like voice commands are gaining popularity because it is easy for a person to just speak out what they want the device to do. Thus, we propose a program to let user specify, in natural language, an action to be performed when a certain event happens and perform it for him. A layman using a computer can’t code, but many times they have a requirement to perform tasks which they wish to automate. This program acts as a platform where they can specify those tasks as commands in natural English language, and the program performs those tasks for the user. This way of combining any supported action with any supported event allows user to create large number of combinations to help them perform various tasks under various events.
