Amazon's Alexa Has Started Laughing at People

posted by Jerry Caldwell -

Some people are reporting that Amazon's Alexa is freaking them out by randomly laughing. Sometimes she does it out of nowhere, and sometimes she does it when you ask her a question. So it sounds like she's becoming SkyNet. 


There have been LOTS of reports about this on Twitter:

Alexa Tweet
Alexa Tweet
Alexa Tweet

So far Amazon hasn't given a great explanation of why this is occurring, but they're changing Alexa's code so that it's harder to make her laugh by saying something that she misunderstands as a command to laugh.

Yeah. That should stop her eventual world domination.
