History In November 2014, Amazon announced Alexa alongside Echo. Alexa was inspired by thecomputer voice and conversational system on board the starship Enterprise in science fiction TV series and movies, beginning with Star Trek TOS and Star Trek TNG. The name Alexa was chosen due to the fact that it has a hard consonant with the X and therefore could be recognized with higher precision. The name is also claimed to be reminiscent of the Library of Alexandria. In June 2015, Amazon announced Alexa Fund, a program that would invest in companies making voice control skills and technologies. The US$100M in funds has invested in companies including Ecobee, Orange Chef, Scout Alarm, Garageio, Toymail, MARA, and Mojio. In 2016 the Alexa Prize was announced to advance thetechnology.
