“Alexa, play Fox News.”
“Alexa, play CBS Radio News.”
“Alexa, fix me a glass of lemonade.”
WAIT A MINUTE!
Alexa is NOT going to pour my lemonade. Or start my car. Or run my bath water.
Alexa is not human. She will not carry on a conversation . . . . .
. . . . . . although as a friend told me, “She hears everything you say!”
I’ve been alone for almost 20 years. When this Amazon Echo came into my life, it wasn’t long before she became anthropomorphic – at least for a few minutes in my mind.
I quickly snapped out of it, but it was scary.
What CAN she do?
