An example of this can be when Alexa reads a story out loud, which, for example, can be done with the voice of a relative and this will be possible by making the virtual assistant listen to a small recording with the voice of the loved one that we want to hear the voice of. telling that story.

Among other things, during the event, the senior vice president and Chief Scientist of Alexa at Amazon, Rohit Prasad, pointed out that thanks to Artificial Intelligence, Alexa will be able to listen to the recording and learn to imitate the voice.

Also and as a demonstration, during the event a child asks Alexa to finish reading the Wizard of Oz with her grandmother’s voice, as can be seen in the following video of the event:

The imitation of the voice by Alexa is not new. Already in 2019 Amazon announced that its virtual assistant had the ability to speak with the same voice of public figures as the voice of the well-known and popular American actor, Samuel L. Jackson.

Also and as I mentioned at the beginning, another of the announcements was the Conversation Mode, which will allow the user to continue asking questions, without having to repeat the Alexa name again and of course within a limited time. It does this by using the context of the short-term conversation and the accumulated long-term memory to understand the context of the conversation.
