Voice will take on an evolving role in IoT and connected devices. Join us to hear how early adopters are using Alexa to enable new IoT use cases, and get the scoop on how to teach Alexa new skills for your own project/product.

We'll be joined by Amit Jotwani, Amazon Alexa's Sr. Evangelist. Amit helps developers and other companies build incredible experiences using the Alexa Voice Service platform.

Alexa Voice Service (AVS) is the voice enabled personality powering Amazon devices. We'll touch on how to take advantage of the cloud service that powers Amazon devices like the Amazon Echo, Dot, and Amazon Tap. e.g., Train Alexa so a voice command via the Echo kicks off a workflow triggering actuators, or OEM a voice-enabled solution into your own device.
