64 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK Introducing the Alexa ASHA-bot! Our team is always ready to help you at the Info Booths, but we’ve added a fun new “evolutionary” option to help you navigate the ASHA Convention. Now, in addition to the Program Book, Exhibit Guide, Program Planner, mobile app, and the Info Booths, you can use our Alexa ASHA-Bot to find information on-the-go! Several Alexas with a customized database, the ASHA-bot, have been placed throughout the Convention space that can answer all sorts of your onsite questions. You can ask any Alexa general questions just like you would at home. “Alexa, what is the temperature in Boston today?” or “Alexa, where is the closest Dunkin Donuts?” To ask questions specific to the ASHA Convention, you must start the ASHA-bot by saying, “Alexa, start ASHA-Bot!” Once you are greeted by the Alexa ASHA-bot, you can ask questions about the event. We are still developing our Alexa ASHA-bot, so you will need to use the phrasing shown here for your questions and keep your questions simple and direct. Signs near the Alexa ASHA-bots list some standard phrases and a Student Volunteer will hover nearby to provide friendly guidance if needed. You can also get help by saying “Help!” after the ASHA-bot has been activated. Once you are done, close the ASHA-bot by saying, “Thanks,” “Thank you,” or “Cancel.” We’re still piloting the Alexa ASHA-bot, so please be patient, but have some fun! Be sure to let us know if you run into any problems or have ideas on how we can improve our ASHA-bot. • Mark your calendar! PRESENTER At the ASHAStore, Booth 748!
