Amazon Previews New Generative AI Language Model Coming to Alexa [Video]

Posted September 21, 2023 at 2:15pm by iClarified
Amazon is previewing a new large language model and a suite of conversational AI capabilities for Alexa that are powered by generative AI.

What started as a sketch on a whiteboard has evolved into an entirely new computing paradigm—one that has fundamentally changed how people across the world interact with technology in their homes. Having passed half a billion devices sold, and with tens of millions of interactions every hour, Alexa has become part of the family in millions of households. We've always thought of Alexa as an evolving service, and we've been continuously improving it since the day we introduced it in 2014. A longstanding mission has been to make a conversation with Alexa as natural as talking to another human, and with the rapid development of generative AI, what we imagined is now well within reach. Today, we're excited to share an early preview of what the future looks like.

Highlights
● Customers who choose to enroll in Visual ID to start a conversation with Alexa simply by facing the screen on an Echo Show—no wake word required.
● New conversational speech recognition (CSR) engine that is capable of adjusting to common natural pauses and hesitation—enabling more flowing, natural conversation.
● Enhanced text-to-speech technology uses a large transformer model to make Alexa much more expressive and attuned to conversational cues.
