CEDIA has partnered with Amazon to host a one-off, free to attend, exclusive workshop, entitled ‘Mastering the Skills of Voice Control in the Home’ at CodeNode, near Liverpool Street Station, London on Tuesday 21st February 2017.

Leading Amazon experts will delve into the Amazon Alexa platform, explore how it integrates into the connected home and how to use the platform in individual smart home installations.

“Voice control is one of the greatest technological advancements our industry has seen in recent years and is fast becoming common place in the home,” comments Matt Nimmons, managing director of CEDIA EMEA.

“It is imperative for home technology professionals to be knowledgeable on how to integrate voice control into the home and how to use and promote this technology to ensure it is a profitable business venture. We are delighted that Amazon has chosen to host this event, exclusive for CEDIA, in order to help professionals get the most out of this ongoing phenomenon.”

From 9:30am-1pm, the event will be split into three core education sessions to educate attendees on the Amazon Alexa platform and the skills required to integrate voice control into any connected home. The day will commence with a focus on how to ensure voice control becomes a profitable venture for a company, before exploring how consumers will interact with smart home devices using just voice control. Attendees will also learn how to create custom skills to operate the Alexa Engine and any Alexa powered device. The event will conclude with lunch and a networking session.
