Prime Air:

Amazon Prime Air is a future delivery system designed to safely get packages to customers in 30 minutes or less using small unmanned aerial vehicles, also called drones. Flying under 400 feet and weighing less than 55 pounds, Prime Air vehicles will take advantage of sophisticated sense and avoid technology, as well as a high degree of automation, to safely operate beyond the line of sight to distances of 10 miles or more.

Prime Air’s Cambridge, UK office is focused on flight testing and operations related to this future service. The Cambridge team is comprised of both hardware and software engineering, as well as flight test safety leads and vehicle operators. Meet Daphne, a Technical Program Manager on the team, and Samuel, Chief Flight Test Engineer.  

Amazon Alexa & Evi:

The Cambridge team plays a key role in the development of Alexa, Amazon’s cloud based voice service which delights customers on products such as Echo and Fire TV. The Amazon Alexa team focuses on bringing voice-activated experiences to Amazon customers. The team first began with the development of Amazon Echo, a new category of device designed entirely around your voice. It's always ready, connected, and fast — just ask for information, music, news, weather, and more.

Within Alexa, the Evi team’s mission is to answer any question in any language. We develop technology that combines natural language understanding, acquiring large volumes of structured knowledge, and machine reasoning to allow our customers to get answers to their questions in the most natural way possible.

The R&D team in Cambridge is part of the Lab126 organization based in Sunnyvale, California and develops application, device and cloud software for Amazon’s consumer electronic devices. The Lab126 team’s mission is to deliver instant access to everything – digital or physical – from anywhere, via delightfully unique Amazon experiences that make life easier and more fun. The team tackles software for flagship devices like Kindle, Fire tablets, Fire TV, Dash, Echo and many more innovative products to come!

Machine learning is the principal technology underpinning the recent revolution in artificial intelligence. Amazon’s Core Machine Learning team was formed in 2012 to develop and deploy new and bespoke machine learning methodologies across the company. Tasks range from automatic language translation to computer vision and robotics. We work in partnership with teams from across Amazon.
