You have to respect Amazon that if there’s a business to be had, they will work to make it happen. It reminds me a bit of the Borg — unemotionally assimilating new types of business under the AWS umbrella. Long before Polly or Lex were available, we were postulating that Amazon might release a similar service.
Amazon is OK with you creating your own custom AI interaction — and even better if it can run on its platform. If you combine a wake word engine with Lex and then have the output through Polly, you can build your own unique interaction. In between, you can setup some Lambda functions for hosting the interaction or Cognitor for user identification.
What could be some interesting applications or services for AWS in the future?
