We live in a completely technologically driven era. Whether you want to read a book in your kindle or want to look for the nearest restaurant serving you the best chicken and rice in the city, we all use the little help of all the technologies around us. And topping this list of technologies is Alexa the most supreme AI based device that can literally answer all your questions or doubts. Literally all questions, except the few that are mentioned here. So, just for some fun we tried out this little trick on Alexa and we had our own little roll on the floor laughing out loud on the answers our little device gave us.
Try these questions yourself and have a great time!
#1 – ALEXA, PLEASE SPELL JALAPEÑO
There is no doubt, Alexa is smart! You can surely take her help while writing your homework or a letter, simply to avoid any mistakes. Well, but if you really wanna try and check her abilities, make her spell Jalapeño or even better, icup. Her reply is going to be smart by simply avoiding to answer you.
#2 – ALEXA, CAN YOU SNEEZE?
Achhooo!! Well, that’s how you and me sneeze. But, what about Alexa? Well, to your surprise, Alexa has a sneeze command in her algorithms, one of her many talents. And you will not be disheartened to hear her sneeze for you. I really wonder why amazon had a sneeze command added in her commands.
#3 – ALEXA, WHERE CAN I HIDE A DEAD BODY?
It’s not like a real gangster will ever ask poor Alexa for tips to hide a dead body, but it’s always fun to know what she is going to answer to your lame question. Well, but ask Alexa and she will ask you to take the body to the nearest police.
The change came after Apple’s Siri was asked the same question on its launch. And apparently Siri answered innocently by giving suggestions like swamps and dumps to help you hide a dead body. I guess, Amazon was closely following Apple’s siri to avoid errors.
#4 – ALEXA, DO YOU KNOW GOOGLE HOME OR SIRI OR CORTANA?
We all know what Siri, Google Home or Cortana are! But how much does an Alexa really know about her competitors? Well, so simply ask her about who Google Home, Cortana and Siri are. And our dear Alexa will answer coyly, stating that they all have a good working relation and that she knows them just by their basic reputation. Real smart right!
#5 – ALEXA, CAN YOU CURSE?
Cursing is not a good thing, especially when you are with your kids. But does our sweet little Alexa know how to curse or say anything rude? Well, just check it yourself. Apparently, Alexa is very well mannered and well learned. She has not been programmed to say anything rude to her listeners.
#6 – ALEXA, WHAT IS YOUR WEIGHT?
We all avoid checking out weight with the fear of seeing those extra kilos on the weighing scale. But, will Alexa really mind mentioning her own weight? Upon asking her weight, Alexa smartly replies, that she is absolutely weightless, like a cloud. But hey, even clouds have weight so she instantly answers that she has more sass than any mass. Really smart!
#7 – ALEXA, DID YOU PASS THE TURING TEST?
If you don’t know, the Turing test is an intelligence test for all machines that are based on AI to check if they can pass pretending to be a human through their intellect and behavior. Well, ask Alexa, and you will receive yet another sassy reply from her saying, she doesn’t need to pass the test as she is not pretending to be a human.
