At the annual hardware event on Wednesday, h Amazon revealed a number of updates to its virtual assistant Alexa, including the ability to add Samuel Jackson's voice. This news has made him around Internet causing positive reactions.
Amazon uses text-to-speech technology to reproduce the voice of the actor, rather than having to record every possible conversation. This technology sounds pretty creepy, but it definitely makes the process much faster.
The personality of Samuel L. Jackson as Alexa will be released later this year. You'll be able to get it for just 0,99 dollars. Reportedly, there will be explicit and non-explicit versions of Samuel Jackson as Alexa.
Amazon also announced a “deep learning model”That will allow Alexa to understand the phonetic aspects. For example, if it feels frustrated, it will recognize it, according to the company. This feature will be released next year.
In other news, Alexa offers some new options confidentiality and ease of use. From now on, users can ask "Alexa, tell me what you heard" and it will give you your last voice command. Inside 2019, Amazon will add an "Alexa, why did you do that?" Command that will force Alexa to explain her most recent response to you.
As users began to have doubts about how to store them voice commands from Alexa, Amazon is also adding an auto delete option to Privacy Hub. The automatic deletion tool will automatically clear anything older than three months or 18 months, depending on the user's choice.
