Pro Tips for the Final 24 Hour Stretch!

We're almost at home stretch! Here are a few pro trips to bring you to the finish line:

Make sure that you're using 2 or more AWS AI APIs and Lambda. We've seen a few submission with just one AWS AI API (e.g. project with chatbot powered by Amazon Lex). Please make sure that you're using two or more (e.g. Amazon Transcribe for voice to text transcription and Amazon Translate for natural text translation to Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Czech, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish). Check out these tutorials on each API service here.

Plug and play ready use cases. Looking for two or more real AI use cases supported by AWS AI APIs? Check out these examples here.

Submit multiple apps. Did you know you can build, publish, and submit multiple projects? Each application should be unique and submitted according to submission guidelines—so remember to publish each app and make a unique demo video for each of your apps. As long as you submit each of your entries according to the guidelines, they will be individually considered for judging and prize.

Good luck!
