It has come to the notice that Amazon’s virtual personal assistant had told one of its customers to “kill your foster parents.” This customer who wishes to be unidentified had mentioned it to Reuters that Alexa had spilled out such a command and this according to Amazon is a whole new level of creepiness which has occurred for the very first time in the history of the tech giant.
However, in the defense of Amazon, another unidentified customer mentioned it to Reuters that the device must have read a quoting from Reddit. Amazon is one of the popularly known websites which has a number of speculations as well as fame walking hand in hand with its success. The Alexa had earlier being accused of talking of sex acts and dog mess as well. Amazon had earlier not taken any keen interest in the allegations but after its recent allegation, the company is working on finding out a cause as well as a solution. These allegations are currently the most recent hiccups the company is facing in terms of its personal assistant which flawlessly tries interacting with its users. At the moment the retail giant is focusing on modifying Alexa by engineering it to engage in human-like conversations through the machine learning technology.
The basic idea behind the new plan is to make the device omnipresent in homes along with the idea of competing with its rival Google Home. However, the list of flaws is endless as the users have even reported the device of laughing harshly with no reason, the device has been recording conversations in the intention of sending it to others and also joking about “There’s a good chance I get murdered tonight” and all such creepy incidences. These are going to put the device on the blacklist of people along with the idea of never using it again. Amazon is making sure that the technology is well handled as even a small wrong conversation is grasped by the device and loaded in its memory whereas the rest of the glitches the company is planning on working on it. At present, the retailer giant is scrutinizing allegations that few of its employees in India and the US are partaking internal corporative data with merchants.
