    These event are similar to how disembodied spirits would behave. It's like a haunted AI. There's no way global gang stalking groups would pass on using this technology on targets. According to Michael Bell's book 'The Invisible Crime' Vol. 1 & 2 every target is on a watch list. Alexa could have access to those names.

    I got this one she doesn't do what Alexa does . Although there was one instance where without me asking her she decided to tell me ( unprompted) the history of the wine industry in France ? [​IMG]

    It was just a big consecutive misunderstanding

    Asked for more details, Amazon provided Recode with the following explanation:

    Echo woke up due to a word in background conversation sounding like “Alexa.” Then, the subsequent conversation was heard as a “send message” request. At which point, Alexa said out loud “To whom?” At which point, the background conversation was interpreted as a name in the customers contact list. Alexa then asked out loud, “[contact name], right?” Alexa then interpreted background conversation as “right”. As unlikely as this string of events is, we are evaluating options to make this case even less likely.”

    Here’s Amazon’s explanation for the Alexa eavesdropping scandal

    My mother has Alexa, I'm going to ask her if it's doing weird stuff...

    I have an AI called Braina I purchased for my home server, I haven't used it much recently, whilst I was training it early on I was frustrated with it so I've let it be shut down for now...I'll start it back up when I have more time and see it of its willing to learn or not...lol

    I guess it would be in their best interest to have access to all AIs.

    There's reports of Alexa not working on Christmas. Amazon said they sold tens of millions of units and the system could be overwhelmed.

    I have an Amazon Echo. It is currently unplugged. When I used it, I noticed when listening to the audio recording of things that I said to Alexa, it would pick up, correctly, things that I had said starting with "Alexa" but also things I said in the vicinity of it whenever I said "that's a". For some reason it thinks, or thought at the time--it might have been patched--that my pronunciation of "that's a" sounded a lot like the watch word "Alexa".
