M. Madhu Rani | S. Sreesubha | K. Tamilarasi | S. Valli Sneha

Abstract: People tend to keep things in one place and forget the location of those items later. It could be a watch or spectacles or anything else. Especially elderly people find it difficult to remember things and find them when needed. Another major concern is the people with Alzheimer's disease. They tend to forget things frequently. This paper focuses on developing a Voice enabled Smart Home Assistant that will help find items in a home for elderly people and those with Alzheimer's disease and also be used by people who often forget where they keep their things as well as large organizations to manage complex inventory, without the friction and multiple steps of keeping inventory updated. And also support natural and secure interaction using voice recognition. This paper will be relevant to society, as users will be able to communicate with the Smart Home Assistant in a natural way and security will also be ensured as an unauthorized users is not having the rights to access the objects. The Voice enabled Smart Home Assistant will employ natural language processing techniques to understand the user's request to identify the location of the object and report it to the user. This paper will be implemented using Amazon Alexa which is a cloud-based voice service and the users can be accessed through the Amazon Echo device.
