Intel demonstrated a “smart home” at Amazon re:Invent utilizing the Alexa skills and using AWS as the cloud connectivity for their IoT integration.
Intel joined Amazon to unveil two technology initiatives to advance the Smart Home ecosystem and extend natural language capabilities to consumers everywhere.
The first is enabling Alexa Skills to remotely control and coordinate device actions with an Intel-based Smart Home Hub.
The second is an Intel-based smart speaker reference design with Amazon Alexa. It is intended to help hardware manufacturers accelerate their development of voice-enabled devices with the Intel platform and Alexa Voice Services. The reference design will be available to developers and manufacturers in the first quarter of 2017.
