Thread: Soon the dead will speak-through Alexa

  1. #1

    Thumbs down Soon the dead will speak-through Alexa

    Please no ... would you be able to use the voice on a robot for company?

    The US retail giant then showed off a video segment portraying a child who asks Alexa if ‘grandma can finish reading me the Wizard of Oz?’ before the AI assistant affirms the command and changes her voice.

    The idea is that - after listening to someone's voice for less than a minute - Alexa would be able to simulate that voice when speaking.

    It’s not clear how far into development this new feature is - or if it will even be rolled out at all.

    But there are already mixed reactions about it from people on Twitter.

    With some labelling it as ‘terrifying’ and others comparing it to something straight out of an episode of Black Mirror.

    We're being governed ruled by a geriatric Alzheimer patient/puppet whose strings are being pulled by an elitist oligarchy who believe they can manage the world... imagine the utter maniacal, sociopathic hubris!

    It should be obvious that this has spiritual implications. Ancestor worship is still one of the world's largest religious practices....

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."
