Alexa, Nice to Meet You
Presented by Iván López
Alexa, Siri, Cortana, Google Assistant ... voice assistants are all the rage right now. With these handy (and entertaining) little gadgets, it's possible to carry out many actions that seemed like science fiction a few years ago: controlling the lights throughout your house, listening to your favorite music, finding out whether you'll need an umbrella tomorrow ... all via voice commands!
In this talk, Object Computing software engineer, Iván Lopez, will talk about Amazon Echo and its virtual assistant, Alexa. You will learn how easy it is to develop the coding skills to deploy new commands to your Echo device without spending a euro. He'll finish by demonstrating a variety of fun things you can do with an Echo Dot.
Once you see how much potential lies in these handy household helpers, you're sure to want one of your own!
