Alexa and the Connected Car

  1. 1. Alexa and the Connected Car Emily Lam Alexa Conference Jan. 19-21, 2017
  2. 2. Emily Lam • Studied Linguistics and specialized in Computing at UCLA • Front-end Developer at Lieberman Software • Won the Worldpay prize at Money 20/20 • 2nd place at Connected Car hackathon
  3. 3. Agenda  What is a Connected Car?  Hyundai & Ford Alexa Skill  Automobility LA & CES 2017  Create an Alexa skill using the Mojio API  RoadBuddy  Troubleshooting bugs  Voice user interface  The state of Artificial Intelligence  Future of the connected car  Privacy
  4. 4. What is a Connected Car? A car that uses technology to gather information, analyze data, and perform tasks.
  5. 5. What data can you get?  Speed  Car’s GPS location  Motion alerts  Geofencing  Recent trip history
  6. 6. So how does Alexa work with a connected car?
  7. 7. Hyundai Blue Link Skill Alexa is embedded in the car itself and can do anything an Echo can.
  8. 8. What can Alexa do? Features:  Remote start and stop charging electric models  Remote engine start with climate control  Remote door lock/unlock  Remote horn/lights
  9. 9. Ford SYNC 3 The Ford SYNC 3 has an Alexa skill called “myFord Mobile”.
  10. 10. Alexa is located under Apps > Alexa.
  11. 11. The Ford Skill bridges the gap between your home and car.
  12. 12. Utterances Alexa,  ask myFord to check my battery status.  ask myFord to start my car.  ask myFord to lock my car.  turn on living room lights.  set home thermostat to 72 degrees.  turn on garage lights.
  13. 13. The key takeaway is that you are able to stay connected to your car when you’re at home, and you’re able to stay connected to your home when you’re in your car.
  14. 14. So now let’s build our own skill for the connected car.
  15. 15. Mojio API
  16. 16. Mojio Platform Mojio collects data from the OBD-II port and sends it to the Mojio server.
  17. 17. RoadBuddy  RoadBuddy is a connected car platform that delivers automated real-time road conditions.
  18. 18. For the Alexa skill, you can also report incidents and get road conditions.
  19. 19. RoadBuddy Intent Schema "intents": [ { "intent": "GetReportIntent", "slots": [ { "name": "Incident", "type": "LIST_OF_INCIDENTS" }] },
  20. 20. { "intent": "GetRoadConditionsIntent", "slots": [ { "name": "Incident", "type": "LIST_OF_INCIDENTS" }] },
  21. 21. Sample Utterances  GetReportIntent report an {Incident}  GetReportIntent report a {Incident}  GetReportIntent report that {Incident}  GetReportIntent report that there's {Incident}  GetReportIntent there's {Incident}  GetReportIntent {Incident}  GetRoadConditionsIntent what are road conditions like  GetRoadConditionsIntent what are road conditions up ahead  GetRoadConditionsIntent road conditions  GetRoadConditionsIntent tell me road conditions
  22. 22. Account Linking Authorization URL  The url where customers will be redirected in the companion app to enter login credentials.  Ex. https://accounts.moj.io/oauth2/authorize?response_ty pe=code Client Id  Unique public string used to identify the client requesting for authentication.
  23. 23. Domain List (Optional)  The list of domains that the authorization URL will fetch content from. You can provide up to 15 domains. Scope (Optional)  List of permissions to request from the skill user. You can provide up to 15 scopes.
  24. 24. Redirect URLs (Optional)  The list of valid HTTPS redirection endpoints that could be requested during authorization to redirect the user back to after the authorization process.
  25. 25. Authorization Grant Type (Optional)  Specifies the OAuth authorization grant that Alexa uses to obtain an access token from Mojio. Access Token URI  This URI will be used for both access token and token refresh requests.  Ex. https://accounts.moj.io/oauth2/token
  26. 26. Client Secret  Given by Mojio
  27. 27. Client Authentication Scheme  HTTP Basic or Credentials in request body Privacy Policy URL  https://www.moj.io/privacy/
  28. 28. Configure a Mojio object with the following key/value pairs.
  29. 29. Call the function before you register the handlers.
  30. 30.  Create a variable outside of the handlers object and set it equal to this to avoid getting a null error.  Use mojio_client to get data.
  31. 31.  Use self.emit for Alexa to say something. • Get data from lambda request.
  32. 32. State of Artificial Intelligence  Artificial intelligence was coined by John McCarthy in 1956.  Defining Artificial Intelligence  The ability to learn and solve problems  Think like a human (How a brain functions, cognitive science)  Act like a human (Turing test)  Think rationally (Using logical formulas)  Act rationally (Design intelligent systems to maximize goals)
  33. 33. Alexa and AI  Alexa has the ability to learn and solve problems.  Can Alexa think like a human? No. It is optimized to perform complex tasks and cannot multi-task.  Can Alexa act like a human? Not so much but it can sing and show signs of humor.  Can Alexa think rationally? Yes. It can apply algorithms and functions.  Can Alexa act rationally? Yes. Ex. It can figure out the nearest pizza place and buy items from Amazon.
  34. 34. State of Artificial Intelligence  Needs to be more conversational  More data = better machine learning
  35. 35. The Future of the Connected Car  More skills, more integrations.  Ex. Volkswagen will be integrating with Alexa  7000+ skills on the Alexa app  “Consumers increasingly want to stay connected to their homes while on the move” - Don Butler, Connected Vehicle and Services executive director of Ford  Self-driving cars
  36. 36. Have cars talk to one another  Ex. One car experiences black ice on the road and other cars are alerted to avoid that area.  Be more efficient  Predict safer routes  Have better car maintenance
  37. 37. Amazon delivery to car trunks with help of Alexa  Article by Tylor Orton:https://www.biv.com/article/2017/1/pop-your- trunk-amazon-has-delivery/  “Eventually we’ll be able to pop [your] trunk and allow Amazon to deliver packages securely there, which will make it more convenient for the customers and a lot more efficient for Amazon to deliver to cars even faster.” – Kenny Hawk, Mojio CEO
  38. 38. Privacy concerns  Amazon’s Echo & Dot are always on  Records your voice after wake word and transfers it to a processor for analysis  Information is stored on Amazon’s servers  Can delete your data
  39. 39. Murder in Arkansas  Victor Collins was killed and his body was found in his friend’s hot tub. There was an Amazon Echo near the crime scene. Law enforcement agents asked Amazon to turn over the audio and other records but they refused.  http://www.inc.com/joseph-steinberg/amazon-alexa- recordings-requested-by-police-in-murder-case.html  Can Alexa be used against you?  The issue of using speech recordings as evidence
  40. 40.  Ultimately, we must find a balance between privacy and convenience. And in the end, Alexa is an incredibly powerful tool and will continue to advance the field of artificial intelligence.
  41. 41. Resources  https://developer.amazon.com  https://aws.amazon.com  https://www.moj.io/developer/
