Focus Challenge: Voice-Enabled Application (think Amazon Echo or Google Home!)Don't wait, apply now!
We want your ideas for a voice-enabled application.
UChicago and Chicago Medicine students, faculty, and staff: If you’ve heard of Amazon’s Echo or Google Home, you know it’s now possible to create conversational apps for these “smart speakers.” We’re interested in getting your ideas for a smart speaker app. The best one will get $200, an Amazon Dot, and consideration for the Spring Cohort of the App Challenge.
To enter, draw upon your research or interests (something you’re passionate about), and come up with a problem or scenario where finding a solution would have a great impact on an industry/society/etc.
- Imagine a scenario where the smart speaker is one of (at least) two people in a specific conversation.
- Describe the general context for the conversation and what the smart speaker would need to know.
- Make a flowchart that shows how the conversation would proceed given different answers. See examples at the bottom of this page. (You can use paper and a snapshot, Lucidchart https://www.lucidchart.com/, or something else).
No programming or computer science experience necessary. UChicago and Chicago Medicine students, faculty, and staff are eligible — with a few exceptions. If you’re passionate about something in your research or day-to-day life, consider entering here.
