What we'll do

Hi Melbourne Amazon Alexa community,

Get ready for another insightful evening on Wednesday 18th September 2019 at Amazon Web Services (AWS) Melbourne Office. Come along and join fellow voice enthusiasts, advocates and developers (Alexa and others) to hear and talk about voice and conversational AI. Also, share food and drinks whilst making new friends. Most of all, we have great presentations.

This month we have Hannah Bourke and Calvin Schnierer from AGL Energy who will provide an overview of what the AGL skill does and how it works behind the scenes, including maintaining session data to provide a consistent user experience, and slot filling. They will also go through how they developed for the Alexa Multi Modal experience using APL (Alexa Presentation Language) and some key challenges that they came up against when working on the platform.

We also have our meetup member, Sabarinath Gopalan, present how his skill, Magic Words.
