Alexa Skills Kit serves our Alexa's North Star by becoming the world's leading AI developer toolset, enabling developers to craft experiences that make Alexa a natural and enriching part of everyday life. Our tools evolve in lock-step with our advancements in AI, while abstracting and simplifying these concepts for developers (e.g., AI as API)-democratizing access to a wider range of developers, who will not require specialization in SLU concepts.
