AWS re:Invent 2017: How I Made My Motorbike Talk, or How to Mix Amazon Lex, Amazon L (ARC331)

Published on Nov 29, 2017

This talk includes a story and a recipe. The story is about a nerd who bought his first motorbike, got a license for it, and started hacking to make it interact and talk, all in two months. The recipe is a technical one that explains how to use Amazon Lex and Amazon Lambda to quickly prototype and deploy a serverless chatbot connected with an embedded device in order to realize an Internet of Things (IoT) application. We discuss how you can integrate your IoT application with Amazon Lex using AWS Lambda and the Amazon API Gateway, how to exchange session data to have a contextual conversation, and how to provide a successful bot experience. Expect to leave this session knowing how to build, deploy, and publish a bot, and how to attach it to an IoT device—with the potential to bringing to life any object that surrounds you.
