The White House Historical Association (WHHA) works to make history more accessible through its digitized archives and White House Experience Mobile App. Its three tour options include one for virtual visitors of the White House, another for people in Washington, DC who are exploring the surrounding White House neighborhood, and a third that serves as a companion tour for those visiting the White House in person. The White House Companion Tour features a room-by-room guide along with information about where visitors should meet for the tour. The mobile app will also include a "Presidential Look-Alike" feature, powered by Amazon Rekognition, through which users can take a selfie to find out which president or first lady they most resemble. WHHA President Stewart McLaurin describes how AWS supports that mission and these initiatives. By using the AWS Cloud, this smaller nonprofit can expand its reach across the globe.
