The Senior Vice President of Amazon Rohit Prasad said: Alexa will mimic any voice after hearing less than a minute of audio. He further added that: the goal of this is to “make memories last” after so many of us lost someone during the pandemic.
Amazon’s goal for Alexa is generalizable intelligence, which means the ability to adapt to user environments and learn new concepts with little external input. The goal is not to be confused with the all-knowing, all-capable, uber artificial general intelligence, or AGI, which Alphabet’s DeepMind unit and Elon Musk co-founded OpenAI are seeking said, Amazon VP Rohit Prasad.
An Amazon executive said that Alexa had 100 million customers globally, in line with figures the company has provided for device sales since January 2019.
The new feature is still in the developing phase and the company didn’t share when it will bring the feature to the public.
