This talk focuses on the underlying technologies and architecture required to build natural language interfaces to control IoT devices. The session covers serverless frameworks, which are gaining significant traction in the IoT community, offering auto-scaling and pay-per execution in the cloud. You will learn about the basics of the architecture and deployment process and will discuss practical use cases to emphasize how OpenWhisk, an open source serverless framework can be leveraged in conjunction with popular IoT platforms to create solutions for home automation, security, and web applications. In addition, we will demonstrate how to pair Openwhisk and cognitive natural language services offered by the IBM Watson Platform to build your version of Alexa or Google Home. Other technologies we will touch during the presentation are real-time event-driven messaging with MQTT and IFTTT.
