6:30-7:30pm Presentation: Alexa vs. The Infinity Gauntlet by Mark Tucker

Presentation Summary:

In the Marvel Studios hit, “Avengers: Infinity War”, Thanos seeks to collect all six Infinity Stones, place them in a gauntlet, and complete his mission of re-balancing the universe. The Infinity Stones give the bearer increased power and control over space, time, reality, thoughts, and souls.

The Infinity Gauntlet can serve as a framework to discuss key areas of success for voice-first software projects. This presentation starts with an overview of where the technology is today and covers the topics of convenience, discoverability, monetization, personalization, retention, and context & memory. As an Alexa Champion, I will be focusing on Amazon Alexa, but much of the content is applicable to Google Assistant and other voice assistants.


Parking: Free.

Attendees can park anywhere in the open and reserved spots (after hours). Park on the back side of the building and look for the open door by the BBQ area.
