Inspiration

Remember is a speech to text software designed to record memories that will collect data to answer future memory-related questions. This software is catered towards individuals who suffer from Alzheimers and dementia.

What it does

Remember is an Alexa skill that allows users to remember past experiences by asking Alexa questions. You are able to share your experiences and memories with Alexa, this information will be recorded for future conversations. Remembers software will use the data collected to generate answers for future questions. This software is targetted towards individuals with Alzheimers and dementia who want to remember experiences.

How I built it

The backend is implemented as a serverless function in AWS Lambda, with databases handled by AWS DynamoDB, and logging in AWS Cloudwatch. In addition, the textual analysis is handled by Microsoft Cognitive Services.

Challenges I ran into

  • There were limits of text analytics, as there was a limited amount of information we could type up.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

  • Implementation of Microsoft Azure’s Text Analytics API into an Alexa Skill to ensure a sentiment value of a user’s memory

What I learned

  • I learned how to build an Alexa Skill Kit -I learned how to implement Microsoft Azure's text analytics API
