Amazon's Echo: The Present and Future of Alexa // Donn Morrill, Amazon [FirstMark's Hardwired NYC]

Download to read offline

Donn Morrill is the Senior Manager of Solutions Architecture for Amazon's Alexa (Echo) team. He joined FirstMark's Hardwired NYC to share insights on the ongoing development of Alexa, the architecture underpinning this 'sleeper hit' from Amazon, and gave a peek into the future of a voice-controlled, artificial intelligence-driven future, powered by the Alexa Voice Service.

Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more—instantly. All you have to do is ask.

FirstMark is an early stage venture capital firm based in New York City. Learn more at http://firstmarkcap.com/.

Hardwired NYC is a monthly event in New York covering the intersection of hardware and software (Internet of Things, 3D printing, robotics, etc.), hosted by Matt Turck, partner at FirstMark. Learn more at http://hardwirednyc.com/.
