The Story

Amazon today announced the expansion of the Alexa Fund Fellowship, adding 14 new university partners, including MIT, University of Cambridge, and Dartmouth University. As part of the expansion, the Alexa Graduate Fellowship and Alexa Innovation Fellowship were also introduced.

Participating education institutions will use the funding to support novel applications of voice technology, advances in conversational AI, and initiatives to teach students how to create conversational experiences.

“We want to increase the quantity and quality of students focused on advancing the capabilities of spoken language systems. We see these investments as a way to broaden access to voice technology and complement the work being done by our researchers and scientists across Amazon,” Alexa Fund worldwide corporate development director Paul Bernard told VentureBeat in an email.
