Alexa’s vocabulary is available in the context of shopping on the Amazon app. Alexa is an AI that’s getting smarter every day because of her being in the cloud. This experience will keep flowing to the Amazon app over time. As more customers continue to use voice, Alexa will continue to get smarter day after day. The important thing that Amazon has learned with voice interfaces is that our customers will continue to guide the overall experience. Depending on how customers are using their voice to shop, Alexa will use dynamic learning to get better. Alexa’s deep neural networks and machine learning algorithms will improve the overall shopping experience.
