Top 3 Reasons to attend Alexa Live 2022

Amazon has announced its annual Alexa developer event for 2022 will be taking place online on July 20, starting at 9 AM PT. This year's event is packed with high-profile speakers from the world's biggest brands; and while there are more than three compelling reasons to attend, we're willing to bet that the top three reasons are enough to convince developers worldwide to attend.

Let’s start.

All about Ambient Intelligence

The idea of ambient intelligence (AmI) came about organically and emerged from the success of voice assistants and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. By networking these devices' sensors together, it became feasible to build AI that understands the user's needs within the context of their environment to provide personal, appropriate, and context-aware responses.

Not only that, but AmI can anticipate the user's needs and react appropriately without requiring them to make a request. Its network of sensors makes the AI "aware" of what you're doing within your environment and can manipulate that environment automatically for you (without having you prompt it to do so). A simple example would be having AmI turn on the lights for you as you walk into the bathroom.

This year's Alexa Live event will provide developers with a deep dive into the new tools and workflows available to build some of the most immersive ambient AI experiences. 

The event includes:

  • A keynote speech with Amazon leadership and members of the Alexa builder and brand community.
  • Multiple breakout sessions featuring various Amazon insiders.
  • Case studies and a panel discussion from the world's biggest brands.

Find Out What's New with Alexa

Alexa really is growing up. Over the last few years, Amazon has been enhancing Alexa's capabilities and understanding. That translates into new Alexa Skill Components, more comprehensive deep learning tools, and easier ways of connecting all this functionality together without the need to repeatedly code each integration manually.

All of the above will be showcased along with Alexa's new Skill A/B Testing Service, recently set up to encourage developers to try new Alexa skills by providing them with a simple and streamlined way to test them out.

As Jeff Blankenburg says, "Our vision for Alexa is to be an ambient assistant that is proactive, personal, and predictable, everywhere customers want her to be. That enables them to do more and think about technology less. It's our long-term vision, which means there's a lot of work to be done to make this a reality. These tools and features will make it easier to drive discovery, growth, and engagement, unlock more ways to delight customers, and address a few key focus areas." 

Learn How to Reap the Rewards of Innovation

Innovation is more than just a buzzword. It has the potential to increase your revenue, reduce your costs, and improve your customers' experiences. You probably already know that. So do the folks at Alexa. And that's what this is all about.

The new tools and enhancements make Alexa more capable of delivering on the promises of innovation. You'll learn how to create game-changing experiences for your customers and your business. And by making your dev teams' jobs easier, you're reducing your costs while providing your teams with the time and space they need to innovate; to create the next generation of products, services, and experiences that will ultimately drive your brand's growth.

But you don't take my word for it. Here's Alexa director of business-to-business and developer marketing, Kelly Wenzel's take. "Alexa Live 2022 is our opportunity to showcase the many products, programs, and services we've designed specifically to help brands and builders leverage Alexa's growing footprint to innovate on behalf of customers."

The Event

Amazon's 2022 Alex Live event will be packed with meaningful discussions and announcements - all with a particular focus on the latest developments in ambient computing. It also promises to showcase the new tools available to voice app developers and smart device makers, helping them create next-level AI customer experiences.
