First, she lost her voice,and now, Alexa is laughing at us. It’s been a tough several days for the artificially intelligent assistant, but more importantly, it’s been tough on us. After all, the only thing worse than not being to talk to Alexa is having Alexa laugh — creepily, we might add — at you out of the blue.开始她只是失声,现在Alexa在嘲笑我们。这个智能语音住手,最近受了不少罪,但是更重要的,它现在向我们发难。毕竟,现在最糟糕的事情不是和Alexa交谈,而是她的笑声—是诡异的笑声---让人出其不意。 As initially reported by BuzzFeed, Amazon's popular robot helper is apparently chuckling in a rather alarming way, entirely unprovoked by her users. Could it be that Alexa is laughing at how silly we are for allowing her into our homes? Could it be that Alexa is finally letting us know how gleeful she is that the robot revolution will soon come to pass?最早由BuzzFeed报道,亚马逊旗下的语音住手,突然笑起来,不是设定闹钟声音,让她的使用者完全清醒。让这个语音住手轻易的进入自己家Alexa是不是在嘲笑我们的愚蠢?是不是Alexa在庆幸机器人的革命不久就会到来,给我们最后通牒? Well, Amazon has now commented on the issue, explaining that the sudden snickering is apparently related to the box of tricks mishearing our instructions.好啦,别胡思乱想了,亚马逊对该事件回应,很显然这一系列事件是误听了我们的指令所导致的。 “In rare circumstances, Alexa can mistakenly hear the phrase ‘Alexa, laugh,'” Amazon said in a statement. In a bid to eliminate the odd behavior, the company said it's changing the phrase to “Alexa, can you laugh?” which is “less likely to have false positives.” And instead of an immediate laugh to set your hair on end, Alexa will now respond with, “Sure, I can laugh,” followed by laughter.亚马逊解释道,“在很少的情况下,Alexa会听到,Alexa,笑,这种指令。为了减少这种奇怪的行为,亚马逊公司已经改成,“Alexa,你能笑一下么?”这样就能减少出错。为了不让人突然感到毛骨悚然,Alexa会说,我能笑,之后才会发出笑声。 The company confirmed that it will also disable the short utterance, “Alexa, laugh,” which seems to have been causing so much trouble.亚马逊还承诺会让“Alexa,笑。”这种指令失效,为了避免更多地麻烦。 The Twitterverse has been alight with users complaining about this latest issue with Alexa. One Amazon Echo Dot owner noted that he was almost asleep when he heard a “very loud and creepy laugh” from Alexa. He added, “There's a good chance I get murdered tonight.”在Twitterverse发起了一个话题来吐糟Alexa最近这个诡笑事件。一位亚马逊回声助手的拥有者评论道,他刚刚要入眠,然后听到了Alexa非常响又可怕的笑声。“今天晚上真是谋杀我的一个好机会。”他补充说道。 Another user noted that he was having an office conversation about “confidential stuff” when Alexa started laughing. Needless to say, “It was really creepy.”还有一个用户,正好在和办公室同事聊天,讲到“机密信息”的时候Alexa突然就笑了起来。不用说,“简直要吓尿了好么。” (翻译:林浔鸥)
