After Alexa Live and all the hype about Alexa Conversations, I’m wondering what people in the Jovo community who’ve been working on cross-platform skills think about it. While I like the idea of having the technology facilitate a more natural conversational style with my skill, I’m concerned that implementing Alexa Conversations might be locking me into parts of the Amazon ecosystem that will make my voice app harder to deploy across platforms.
To use Alexa Conversations, you need to train a model that seems to reside in a black box. If you are reliant on the capabilities of this module (which basically resides outside of your control), will that make it more difficult to deploy the same feature set on other platforms?
Just wondering if anyone else has thought about this.
