Do you want to hear your grandma’s voice again? Soon, your Alexa device will be able to imitate real human voices.
Amazon developers are working on a feature that would allow the digital voice assistant to mimic a person’s voice based on recordings that are less than a minute long.
It very well could include a relative who has gone to the great beyond.
A product demonstration in Las Vegas had a young child ask “Alexa, can Grandma finish reading me the Wizard of Oz?”
Scientists have mentioned that impersonating dead relatives can help “make their memories last” and build greater trust with Alexa users.
I’m not sure this is something I want in my life at this time. I need some time to wrap my head around it.
Is this something you’d welcome or is it way too creepy for you?
