At LC, we pride ourselves in fostering innovative thinking across the board—this applies even to our interns. With voice tech continuing to emerge as an industry mainstay, we tasked our interns with creating their very own Alexa skill.
Their response was a skill that helps with a tried-and-true food dilemma: what restaurant does one choose when going out to eat? Introducing, the Restaurant Finder. This is a skill that allows users to specify the location, type of food and price range to search for when at an eating-out impasse. Skill co-creator and current LC intern Paige Rosynek states, “Technology should be used to solve problems, no matter how small. And voice recognition technology definitely has a huge potential to solve problems of all sizes in numerous fields.”
