Be a part of pioneering work in voice technology

Be a part of pioneering work in voice technology. Submit a concept for the Alexa Diabetes Challenge by 5:00 PM ET on Monday, May 22, 2017.

Since we kicked off the Challenge on April 10th, the enthusiasm from the tech community has been inspiring and we’re excited to see submissions roll in. There are two weeks left for you to join.

What’s Coming Next
Remember that up to five finalists will be selected to receive $25,000 and 10,000 AWS credits each and advance to the Virtual Accelerator to work with expert mentors as they develop their concept into working prototypes. The Virtual Accelerator includes an in-person Boot Camp at Amazon in Seattle where experts in voice technology, Amazon services, and diabetes will provide teams with advice and guidance. The Virtual Accelerator will conclude with a live Demo Day in NYC, where finalists will present their iterated solutions to the judges and a live audience of influencers, investors, and media. Following Demo Day, judges will select one winner to receive the $125,000 grand prize.
