Welcome to the Contrafabulists podcast, Kin Lane and Audrey Watters' weekly discussion of the latest technology (and politics of technology) news.
In this episode, we discuss Amazon Alexa, its functionality and ideology, and the language we use to talk about "intelligence" and "skills."
Here are the stories we referenced:
- "Did an Echo Call 911 During a Domestic Assault? Amazon Says No." via The New York Times
- "Amazon Alexa keeps getting smarter" via Business Insider
- "Amazon may give developers your private Alexa transcripts" via Engadget
- "Learning More About Amazon Alexas Approach to APIs And Skills Development" by Kin
Feedback is welcome. (You should email Kin with it though, not Audrey.)
