Alexa Loses Her Voice in Widespread Outage


The issue seems to be with Amazon's US-East-1 data centers, which has been available to customers for several years.

The sources also expect that one day Alexa will be so advanced that a single device could translate multiple people speaking multiple different languages at the same time.

So for instance if someone from the USA attends a wedding in Japan without knowing a word of Japanese, Alexa would help the person hold a conversation in the local language.

In other words, in the above example, Alexa would consider the Japanese's culture, which is more formal and conservative than American culture.

Amazon Wants To Turn Alexa Into A Real-Time Language Translator

Alexa is a skilled digital assistant that is capable of a great many things.

Others are trying similar tactics-the Google Translate app can translate a two-way conversation with an internet connection, though without the promise of understanding cultural context. The Pixel Buds' real-time translation feature received mixed reviews.

Amazon, which first upended the retail environment when it wooed readers away from traditional book stores, then became the go-to for many online shoppers interested in items ranging from toys to tools, now dominates the emerging smart speaker space as well. Instead of relying on a large home device, they expect that Alexa will be able to translate through any smart device. Amazon's very own smart voice assistant may receive an important update soon as the top e-commerce website is believed to be thinking of making Alexa able to translate from one language to another.

According to the report, Amazon's team never pointed fingers at company CEO Jeff Bezos, but Nest employees reportedly ended the call under the impression that the decision came from Bezos.
