Using voice and text, conversational interfaces may be built into any application with the help of Amazon Lex. To help you create applications with incredibly engaging user interfaces and realistic conversational interactions, Amazon Lex offers the advanced deep learning functionalities of automatic speech recognition (ASR) for transcribing speech to text and natural language understanding (NLU) for figuring out the text’s intended meaning. With Amazon Lex, any developer now has access to the same deep learning algorithms that power Amazon Alexa, allowing them to rapidly and simply create sophisticated chatbots that can engage in natural language conversations.
One of the hardest issues in computer science to solve is speech recognition, which requires sophisticated deep learning algorithms to be trained on enormous amounts of data and infrastructure. By giving all developers access to Amazon Alexa’s power, Amazon Lex democratizes these deep learning technologies. Utilizing these technologies, Amazon Lex gives you the ability to define completely new product categories made feasible by conversational interfaces.
