With the recent improvements in conversational AI and availability of products like Amazon echo, we thought it will be good if we have something that helps in some of our day-to-day tasks. Got to know about Amadeus API at the same time and fortunately we got our newly ordered echo with us to calhacks. We developed present application, Flight Finder.
What it does
It will help to search for flights given a specific destination.
How I built it
Using alexa skills kit of amazon and API's provided by Amadeus.
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Able to make something that interacts with humans via voice.
What I learned
What's next for flight_finder
If Amadeus comes up with http post REST API's, one can book his tickets by giving voice commands to Alexa and various other functionalities like helping to plan one-way or round trip travel, book my hotels and taxi in advance etc. If more intelligence is added, alexa can give suggestions on best round trip deals considering all factors like travelling, staying and getting around place in to account.
