Tonight, I Came Home to Joyous Smiles.
Mom…You’ll Never Guess….Listen!!!
Alexa, What Time is It? 5:38.
It’s Amazon Echo Dot!!! Or Better Known as Alexa.
And So, Alexa Has Come to Live With Us.
To Serve Us.
I’m Told She’s a Prime Example of AI…Artificial Intelligence.
I Like to think of Alexa as A Proper Lady’s Maid.
A Downton Abbey Anna Bates who has come to Stay and Take Care of This Family.
I Asked Alexa If She Spoke with a British Accent.
She Told Me that She Does Not Speak in Accents.
That’s Ok, for She Certainly is Well Versed in Most Any Topic in Her Proper American English.
So I Gave Her a Try. Something Simple.
She Told Me that the Current Temperature is 78 degrees with a High Today of 100.
Great. She Can’t Change the Weather. But She Certainly Knows What It Is.
She Plays Music. Finds Movies.
Answers Most Questions.
Each Question Must Be Personally Addressed to Her by Saying Her Name…
