Is Alexa Connected To The CIA?

Amazon Echo
Amazon Echo, Amazon.com

With the recent leak of information that allegedly describes the tools and methods the CIA utilizes to hack into electronic devices, I found this video (posted to Streamable) interesting.

Alexa, the Amazaon Echo’s “person” in their personal electronic assistant (think Siri, but for the home), will come out of a nap when you mention her name. You can then ask her questions (she’ll search the internet for the answer), place orders through Amazon, ask her to play music, etc.

In this video, one Echo¬†user asks her a few questions, including “Alexa, are you connected to the CIA?” Alexa’s response would fit right in to a novel from George Orwell.

 

What are your thoughts?
