Alexa Conversations creates natural voice experiences on Alexa and enhances your code with machine learning. It gives skills the conversational memory to sustain long, two-way interactions between Alexa and the user—in turn allowing you to build skills that respond to a wide range of phrases and unexpected paths.
An especially promising use case for building with Alexa Conversations is online travel booking. Recent research predicts online flight bookings in the US will see double-digit growth after 2022. Alexa skills can make search queries and purchases even simpler, all without navigating a dozen tabs or multiple confusing interfaces.
This tutorial helps you learn the technical concepts of the Alexa Conversations Descriptions Language (ACDL) and guides you through the details of designing a multimodal experience called Flight Search.
After completing the course, you will come away with a toolkit to craft your own unique skill and gain insights relevant to both beginners and advanced developers alike.
The Flight Search tutorial covers principles of ACDL and Alexa Conversations while developing a skill in real time. With these tools, you will move through all the steps of building a functional voice interface that assists users in selecting the cheapest flight options based on a series of questions.
