This is the era of voice, plain and simple! Siri, Google Assistant & Alexa, all have made an undeniable impact. AI, one the application of Machine Learning, is the new buzz-word and backbone of voice-user interface. In this talk, I will discuss best practices of building Alexa Skills using Nodejs.

  • Voice-user Interface
  • Why voice over Web
  • AWS Polly, NLP behind the scene Alexa Skills Kit
  • Understanding Intent Schemas, Slots and Sample utterances of Alexa Skills
