Abstract: Amazon Alexa, the cloud-based voice service that powers Amazon Echo, provides access to thousands of skills that enable customers to voice control their world - whether it's listening to music, controlling smart home devices, listening to the news or even ordering a pizza. Alexa developers use advanced natural language understanding that to use capabilities like built-in slot & intent training, entity resolution, and dialog management. This natural language understanding is powered by advanced machine learning algorithms that will be the focus of this talk.
