We are witnessing an increase in the number of IoT devices having decorated sensors and Intelligence (AI). Hence making smoother human interactions with these IoT devices is the need of the hour. Mobile applications paved the way for interacting with the devices and services with their dynamic and flexible UI. This made interaction simple instead of pressing hard buttons and knobs on the devices. However the field of “Conversational AI” is trying to push this mode of interaction further with an intention to make it more natural,l like the way we speak to one another.
Alexa is the outcome of such efforts in Conversational AI field by Amazon. Alexa in simple terms is a personal assistant to which you can ask question and get information. Alexa featured by default in Echo series of Speakers by Amazon, can take your questions and provide answers. It can play music from your favorite sources and can also place an order at a hotel for you.
While Alexa sits in speakers and answers our questions, we can also make it talk to our devices and get things done. For example, you can ask Alexa to talk to your AC and turn it On/Off. Now how did Alexa know to control your AC? This is made possible by developing what are called as Alexa Skills.
You can develop skills specific to different devices or services and make them operational through Alexa enabled speakers. Uber for example, has developed Alexa skills which you can use and make your speakers to book a cab for you!.
