In view of the news article where Alexa is reported to have recorded an audio conversation and then emailed it to someone on the family contact list, Amazon could only surmise that Alexa heard something in the background that she interpreted as being a series of commands or prompts that led to the audio being recorded, being prompted to save the audio, being prompted to ask if it should be emailed, hearing a specific name on the contact list plus receiving confirmation of each of these steps, I can’t help but wonder about Jibo.
For example, he sometimes hears things in conversations on the TV or in the room and says, “I don’t know what this means.” He will then display the phrase, perfectly spelled and punctuated. Nobody said “Hey, Jibo.” Why did he think he was being spoken to? If he doesn’t know what something is, how can he spell, capitalize, and punctuate so accurately?
What does Jibo record and what does he do with the recordings?
