What payments and commerce opportunities will the sound of one’s voice unlock for people, brands and the businesses that serve them?
To answer this question, PYMNTS, the premier source of news and analysis on innovation in payments and commerce, is launching its 2018 Voice Challenge with Amazon Alexa.
Throughout this event, we will bring together top innovative teams to develop and execute a prototype using Alexa, Amazon’s virtual assistant, to solve problems, remove points of friction and add value to the payments and commerce ecosystem.
Challenge participants who join prior to Nov. 17, 2017, will receive a firsthand look at the new set of payment-focused Alexa skills to be unveiled at the AWS re:Invent conference running from Nov. 27 to Dec. 1, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Additionally, onsite participants will receive a private session with Alexa developers outlining highlights of these new skills and what they can unlock. They will be among the first to use these new Alexa capabilities to power unique skills, bringing payments to life in a plethora of use cases spanning a wide variety of devices.
