The 2017 NAB Show will feature a new program open to all attendees that explores Alexa voice service technology that powers the popular Amazon Echo device. The “Alexa Skill Building Bootcamp” will be held Saturday, April 22 from 12:30-5:00 p.m. at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“Through Alexa’s voice-user interface, consumers are engaging with content in entirely new ways. Audiences can instantly play music, control smart home devices, receive news, weather and other information on a wide range of Alexa-enabled devices,” said NAB Chief Technology Officer Sam Matheny. “Attendees will receive the background and know-how necessary to build experiences that allow their audiences to engage with their content through this emerging platform.”
Designed for software and non- alike, the “Alexa Skill Building Bootcamp” will provide participants with an in-depth overview of voice-user technology. The program also offers as a take-away the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK.) ASK is a collection of the tools, code samples and application programming interface that enables the technology. Attendees will also gain useful experience in Amazon Web Services and related background applications and systems.
The program is free for NAB Show registrants.
