Brant Barger -Creating Voice Commands for the Amazon Echo using AWS Alexa Skills Kit & AWS Lambda Functions
In this talk we’ll be creating a small voice-controlled application for the Amazon Echo. We'll go over the steps needed to use AWS Alexa Skills Kit and set up an audio interface that responds to voice commands. We’ll choose which voice “Trigger” we want to use to activate our application, we’ll create an “Interaction Model”, and we’ll route our commands to an AWS Lambda function to handle the request. We’ll use Node.js to create that function and connect it with our Alexa Skill.
