This is how Alexa reacts to emotional voice commands from its users
Artificial intelligence is generally said to react very soberly to human commands. Quite different from Alexa, who often reacts surprisingly impulsively, but can also be very empathetic.
For example, she is not at a loss for an answer if the other person gets angry or says something offensive:
- “Alexa, you stink.”
- “Alexa, you’re annoying.”
- “Alexa, you are stupid.”
- “Alexa, stupid cow.”
- “Alexa, you have no idea!”
- “Alexa, another saying, broken jaw.”
- “Alexa, you can do me.”
- Or “Alexa, what’s your problem?”
If the bad mood turns into desperation at some point and Alexa finds out that the user is sad, she recommends that they consult friends or a doctor. On Alexa devices with a display, the telephone counseling number is also displayed. But Alexa can do a lot more, she can also cheer up users directly by playing their favorite music or telling jokes.
