Details: Own Alexa? Cut Down On Confusion and Make AI Work for You! It is estimated that more than 25% of US households own an Alexa device. Because of a lack of understanding about the technology, this powerful personal assistant is mostly used as an intelligent clock radio. Many of these households consist of older adults and disabled individuals living alone. These individuals only use a fraction of this smart assistant’s capacity, when it could impact their lives in a more meaningful way. Ask Alexa was inspired by my experience buying my mother an Alexa device and how it became a major part of her safety and wellbeing.
Make her work...
This book is designed to be a quick and easy way to navigate Amazon’s Alexa family of devices. The book breaks down questions, commands and Skills into categories that impact older adults and disabled individuals. I have investigated the specific problems these particular populations tend to experience in their lives at home and found the following key areas where Alexa can support them: FOOD and NUTRITION MENTAL HEALTH ENTERTAINMENT WELLNESS/PHYSICAL FITNESS/EXERCISE MEDICATION SAFETY and SECURITY TRANSPORTATION To show the capacity of Alexa, actual questions and commands are used as examples of how the device can help you in each category. This allows you to see new capabilities that users otherwise would not know.
Skills that will provide even more security and well-being have also been identified. A description of how Skills will support living at home and easy step by step instructions have been provided to activate these applications on your device. Skills are similar to apps on your cellphone.
Additionally, this book is a great guide for anyone owning an Amazon Alexa. It shows new ways of looking at Alexa. It also discusses how smart home devices can be used to improve the health, safety and comfort of your home.
