Make your Raspberry Pi artificially intelligent! Amazon Alexa Personal Assistant Tutorial

Artificial Intelligence. A hefty topic that has dominated the field since computers were first conceived. What if I told you that you could put an artificial intelligence service on your own $30 computer?! That’s right! In this tutorial I will show you how to create your own artificially intelligent personal assistant, using Amazon’s Alexa voice recognition and information service! Just like with Siri, OK Google and others, you will be able to speak to your Pi and have it answer you: “What is the square root of 25?”, “What won best movie in 1995?”, “Add tomatoes to my shopping list” – and much much more! Watch this episode to unleash the AI capability of your Raspberry Pi!
