    Title:
    Add usage from Google Home, Alexa skills, etc, as Hub options...
    User Story / Description:

    I think one of the more blatantly obvious example OPA policy sets that would work great with Alexa is the "EnergySaver" example.

    EnergySaver example can be modified to collect energy data from IoT and have Alexa ask questions of users to optimize energy use.

    Really, if you look at example projects there are quite a few that would work well with Alexa.

    Alexa, how do I apply for Public Assistance?  Alexa, apply for Public Assistance...

    Alexa, am I an employer or contractor?

    etc, etc, etc...

      I have more substantive business use cases for this.  I have been spending more time with voice assistants...

      Many organizations require tests for certification.  They provide real and practice exams.  OPA provides the pass/fail outcome based on the many questions.

      For practice tests, such as for DMV drivers licenses, OPA can conclude provide the test and infer the outcome.  Alexa can be the interface.

      Teenagers sitting in the kitchen ask Alexa to start a practice exam.  Alexa goes to OPA for each question.  Alexa asks the question and the answer goes back to OPA which decides the next question to ask until the outcome is a "pass"...

      Just a further clarification.  Of course the same OPA exam logic can be online, mobile, etc...
