Starting today, Amazon Lex  is available in the Asia Pacific (Seoul) and Africa (Cape Town) regions. Amazon Lex is a service for building conversational interfaces into any application using voice and text. Amazon Lex combines advanced deep learning functionalities of automatic speech recognition (ASR) for converting speech to text, and natural language understanding (NLU) to recognize the intent of the text. This enables you to build applications with engaging users experiences and lifelike interactions. With Amazon Lex, you can easily create sophisticated, natural language, conversational bots (“chatbots”), virtual agents and IVR systems.

With this launch, Amazon Lex is now available in 12 Regions globally, US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Asia Pacific (Korea), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Africa (Cape Town), and AWS GovCloud (US-West).
