From pop culture to politics, customers are increasingly turning to Alexa to learn about current events—including a current event that’s top of mind for many right now: The 2020 U.S. presidential election.
Alexa has already answered millions of questions on politics since the beginning of the year. Thanks to a knowledge graph that utilizes powerful AI and machine learning to encode billions of facts in real time—a fact base that has grown 20-fold over the past five years—Alexa has a deep knowledge of election-related information. She can share the latest polls, tell you about candidate positions, recap debates, and much more. Alexa works dynamically with a growing number of sources such as the Associated Press, Ballotpedia, RealClearPolitics and Factba.se to help you stay informed.
