Amazon's Alexa has taken the world, including India, by storm since its release in 2014. From commanding it to play music to control your smart appliances, Alexa is the next gen technology that is poised to make one's life simpler. While the fanfare for Alexa is quite obvious and noticeable, did you know that Alexa has a very strong Indian connection? Alexa was created by Rohit Prasad, along with colleague Tony Reid.
Prasad has been serving as the Vice President and Head Scientist in Alexa Artificial Intelligence since May 2016. He is at the helm of research and development in speech recognition, natural language understanding, and machine learning technologies aimed at improving customers' experiences with Echo devices, powered by Alexa.
