Business Cases

Creating a better experience for 5 billion customers by leveraging voice recognition technology. We will provide access to AWS Alexa, a voice service that enables customers to interact with devices in a more intuitive way by using their voice. Examples of these interactions include the ability to play music, answer general questions, set an alarm or timer and more. The more customers use Alexa, the more she adapts to speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences.

Voice recognition has a potential to step change the way we think about usability of products, campaigns, interactions with consumers and more. During Hackathon you will be encouraged to use voice technology recognition platforms, such as Amazon Alexa (provided by us), Google Home, Siri or any other platform of your choice, and create new skills and features. You will leverage voice recognition in your prototype and you will be encouraged to do so with a lot of freedom and various tools. Voice recognition can be an excellent way to interact with your solution designed in Python, Spark, R or your technology of choice.
