The 2017 NAB Show will explore the 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. Designed for software developers and non-developers 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.)
“Through Alexa’s voice-user interface, consumers are engaging with content in entirely new ways. Audiences can instantly play music, control smart-home devices, and 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.”
The program is free for NAB Show registrants.
