Top 10 Finalist in Alexa Multimodal Challenge

I’m thrilled to be named a top 10 finalist in the Alexa Skills Challenge: Multimodal for my skill Running Clothes! Running Clothes is a top 10 finalist out of over 430 entries and currently competing for the grand prize. Watch my entry video here.

I developed Running Clothes to take the guesswork out of checking weather for outdoor runs. Running Clothes will tell you your local temperature, wind speed, and a suggested running outfit.

You can also “log your run” after you return and let her know how the clothing recommendation worked for you. With machine learning, your future run outfit suggestions will be personalized to your comfort level.

But I need your help! To determine the grand prize winner, I need YOU to enable the Running Clothes skill, and use it vigorously every day from March 16 – 29, 2019.

The grand prize winner of the Alexa Multimodal skills challenge will be determined by customer engagement between March 16 and March 29, 2019 and the judges’ scores. I need your help with the customer engagement.

Grand Prize winner will be announced April 12, 2019 via Devpost.

Please enable the Running Clothes advisor here and use it every day.

Thank you for your help!
