Getting Smarter with Alexa Conversations

As you may have noticed in today's Alexa Conversations session at Alexa Live, we are one of the partners working to beta test this exciting new platform. Alexa Conversations is a new AI-driven approach to dialog management that enables you to create skills that people interact with in a natural, unconstrained way - using the phrases they prefer, in the order they prefer. Here's a look in case you missed it:

We've been developing our Alexa skill since 2017 and have to say this is the most exciting development we've seen to date. We no longer have to worry about coding for or even identifying all of the different ways people might interact with our skill. Instead, we can provide a set of example dialogs and servicing mappings and allow Alexa Conversations to do all the work -- a huge weight of of our development team's shoulders.
