Amazon Alexa Can Now Mimic the Voice of a Deceased Relative

Amazon Alexa Can Now Mimic the Voice , of a Deceased Relative.

The new feature was unveiled in a demonstration video at the Re:Mars conference in Las Vegas on June 22.

Senior Alexa VP Rohit Prasad did the unveiling.

In the video, a child speaks to Alexa.

Alexa, can Grandma finish reading me the Wizard of Oz?, Alexa Demonstration Video, via CNBC.

Alexa first confirms the child's question with its default voice.

It then switches to a voice that is more human sounding and similar to the child's deceased grandmother.

Prasad stated that the feature is not yet available to the public and continues to be in development.

According to the Alexa team.

โ€œless than a minute of recorded audioโ€ of a person's voice is all that is needed for the feature to work.

Prasad made it clear that the feature can be used to mimic any voice, .

But he focused on the fact that it could help a family remember someone they've lost.

While AI canโ€™t eliminate that pain of loss, it can definitely make the memories last, Rohit Prasad, Senior VP Alexa Team, via CNBC.

Prasad stated that making Alexa more conversational is a renewed goal for the technology, .

Especially since โ€œso many of us have lost someone we loveโ€ due to the pandemic.

A series of new features have also been added to Alexa
