Alexa at the ballpark: Testing Amazon Echo inside a Seattle Mariners suite at Safeco Field

#artificialintelligence 

Amazon's voice technology has made its way into Major League Baseball. Earlier this month, the Seattle Mariners became the first professional sports franchise to place Amazon Echo devices inside stadium suites. At Safeco Field, fans at each of the 59 suites can now use their voice to order food, change TV channels, play music, and even have Alexa -- the AI powered voice assistant built into the Echo -- sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame." GeekWire had a chance to test out the new technology this week before the Mariners took on the Oakland Athletics. Fans can use Alexa for its normal capabilities -- asking about the weather, playing music, providing news updates, etc.
