Amazon Shows Off New Technology That Can Make Alexa Speak In Voice Of Dead Relative

(USA Today) The next potential feature for Amazon digital assistant Alexa: the ability to impersonate a deceased relative.

This week, Amazon is hosting its re:MARS conference, which breaks down company advances in areas including machine learning, automation, robotics and space.


During the conference, Rohit Prasad, senior vice president and head scientist for Alexa AI at Amazon, demonstrated one way to leverage the voice assistant by mimicking the voice of a dead relative.

A video of the feature in action shows a child reading a book, asking Alexa: “Can Grandma finish reading me The Wizard of Oz?” Alexa’s voice then changes to the voice of the grandmother, who continues reading the story.

“While AI can’t eliminate that pain of loss, it can definitely make their memories last,” said Prasad.
