“I’d like to work on making you even smarter than you are today.” Alexa:
“Wonderful. There are multiple roles in Cambridge where you can do that, here are the details … “
Our focus in the Alexa Knowledge team combines natural language understanding, acquiring large volumes of structured knowledge, and building autonomous machine reasoning to allow our customers to get answers to their questions in the most natural way possible. We’re part of a huge research and engineering effort on the Amazon Alexa team.
We’ve solved many complex problems to get to where we are today, but there are still plenty of challenges ahead of us, and Alexa is getting smarter every day. The problems we solve in the Alexa Knowledge team in Cambridge help Alexa get smarter by understanding the different ways people talk, by learning more and more facts about the world, by improving her common sense reasoning and by responding in the most natural way possible in multiple languages.
We set out to build Alexa at Amazon because we believe that voice will fundamentally improve the way people will interact with technology, and we wanted to create a computer in the cloud that could be controlled entirely by your voice. Your new role
As a Data Analyst you will partner closely with our Knowledge Engineers who work to understand real world concepts and represent them in our system. You must be capable of delivering high quality work under tight time constraints. Your responsibilities will include:
- Providing hands-on data collection and data quality assessment services.
- Data verification to check data conforms to some predetermined set of norms.
- Data correction to ensure data presented to Amazon customers is suitably accurate and provides a good customer experience.
In this role, you will get to show your exceptional attention to detail and follow-through. You will also capitalize on your ability to multitask across several domains of data and work autonomously with minimum direction.
