Our project focuses on creating an enhanced infrastructure to enable Amazon’s intelligent personal assistant, Alexa, to respond to a broader and deeper range of queries about music. To this end, we developed an ontology (graphical knowledge structure) for recorded music and prototyped a database-backed, text-based web interface based on the ontology, which demonstrates responses to sample queries.
