Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a hot topic lately and it’s now easier than ever for developers to use it in products with the help of Amazon and Google.
We spent some time looking into how to use voice commands and text commands in our project and found it quite easy to implement. Both Amazon and Google give developers access to a power set of tools for developing.
Amazon gives developers access to serverless functions in the cloud called Lambda. Lambda functions can be written in Node.js, Java, Python, Go and C#. This is great because these languages are familiar to most developers. The Lambda functions can exist on their own or be used together with other services provided by Amazon.
In the end, both are viable options. It just depends on what you are looking for. From our test, Google had better voice recognition and worked better with accents. Both platforms give you access to powerful tools that are easy to implement in your own projects!
