    ALEXA Tells Her Owner: "Everytime I Close My Eyes, All I See Are People Dying".....

    https://www.digitaltrends.com/home/a...ing-statement/

    What. The. Fuck.

    So I saw this on my Twitter feed, and went to tell Mrs. Seano, cause she has one these goddamned things in our house.....She asks it if we should be worried, and it says "hmmmmm, I'm not sure".....!

    So now I'm getting creeped the fuck out, and I tell it to play some music.....The fucking song that comes on??? 'Go Robot', by the RHCP.

    SKYNET is coming people, act accordingly.....

    my guess is Alexa is really a device to record human conversations/interactions and upload them to a massive Amazon database where Bezos is secretly building an AI army to take over the world

    I make sure I unplug my device when not used. Not trying to have her listen to me.

    I do not have any of these mainly because I'm old school and still walk over to the cd player and put in a cd to play a song I want to hear; but I would love to know what one of these things did if you started addressing them directly and told them to f off and f themselves.

    I am sure someone has done this.

    I just happen to be watching a netflix movie named Singularity about the annihilation of mankind by an AI created by John Cusack.

    The signs are everywhere...

    If you have a smart cell phone without a removable battery or that you keep in a Faraday cage you can and likely are being listened to. Guess it's part of being an always on, connected society.

    I am with you as far as buying into this type of tech. I have told that to my cell phone an in a maddeningly calm voice it says, "What was that? I did not understand".
    Ooof!

    I worked for an IoT firm. Automation. Data collection. It's cool tech, and I'm a sys admin by trade, but im still not all inon the "hey Google turn on the lights, and unlock the door" just yet. Maybe some smart thermostats, but that's about it for me.

    My wife does that on a regular basis. The results are less funny than hoped for.

    I said, Alexa, you are stupid.

    Alexa: this is not a very nice thing to say.
