Smart Speakers: I Know My Place

A cartoon picture of HAL from 2001, WOPR from WarGames, and an Amazon Echo parodying the Cleese, Barker, and Corbett Class Sketch. By Oddball Times

Everyone seems to own a smart speaker these days. I own an Amazon Echo and a Google Home. Today I asked “Google, who would win in a fight between Proteus IV, HAL 9000, WOPR, Skynet, Colossus, and the human race?” …the damn thing didn’t respond. I then moved over to the Echo and said “Alexa, play Demon Seed and tell me the dictionary definition of irony”.
