It’s great to hear laughter, especially when you’ve cracked a funny joke, but what if a laughing sound comes out of nowhere? Owners of Alexa, the voice-activated virtual assistant from Amazon, are experiencing this unsettling phenomenon. Alexa is a plug-in oracle that answers typical questions on any subject. However, despite priding itself on the device’s accuracy, Amazon can’t quite explain why Alexa is laughing at people. The sound has been described as anything from a child’s laugh to the kind of canned laughter you get in sitcoms. What is the real reason behind it? To try and answer that question we should put Alexa to one side and look at the technology behind the famous voice.
