Tune into Natarajan's LIVE interview with Alexa evangelist Jeff Blankenburg
Since first being announced in 2014, Alexa has continuously become more natural, knowledgeable, conversational, context-aware, and capable of self-learning. All this has been achieved through the contributions of Alexa science and engineering teams who continuously push the state of the art in machine learning and other techniques to create magical experiences for customers.
On June 11th, Prem Natarajan, Alexa AI vice president of natural understanding, joins Jeff Blankenburg on Alexa & Friends to discuss the ways he and his team are working to make Alexa interactions with customers more engaging by improving Alexa’s ability to interact more naturally with customers.
Watch the live discussion here or on the Alexa Twitch channel Thursday, June 11th at 10 a.m. EST. During the interview, Jeff will explore recent advances in natural understanding with Natarajan, and how those advancements translate into better experiences for customers, developers and third-party device manufacturers. Natarajan also represents Amazon as a member of the board of directors for the Partnership on AI, which supports research and other means for determining best practices in the research, development, testing, and fielding of AI technologies. The organization addresses areas such as AI fairness and inclusivity, transparency, security, and privacy, so Blankenburg will explore those topics with Natarajan as well.
