Amazon’s voice based digital assistant, Alexa, is all set to gain a brand new ability called Answer Update which will inform users when the AI software learns an answer it did not previously know. The technology giant reportedly told TechCrunch that the attribute will start to deploy to users following week. According to an Amazon spokesperson offered by the site, The Alexa agency is getting smarter every day, and also Answer Updates is only another way we’re continuing to expand Alexa’s Knowledge Graph. Believed to have been first discovered by Voicebot, the attribute will notify users when it learns the answer to a certain question it’d been asked before by that particular user, however it did not know the answer to.
It is worth noting that the attribute will needed to have been activated before the original questioned as asked in the first location. According to Voicebot’s Brett Kinsella, Alexa requested to activate “‘Response Updates” and once asked what it was, the voice assistant replied In my opinion a question and I do not know the answer, but I find out later, I’ll inform you. In the mean time, TechCrunch claims that the update response feature can be triggered by stating Alexa, empower Answer Updates whilst Alexa, turn off the “‘Answer calls” command, deactivate it. The report further claims that the I’ll inform you prompt from Alexa is going to be provided in arbitrary to users, and will be triggered only when confronted with the actual question it does not know the answer to. The attribute will apparently not be actuated after listening to news item or other details about a news item, says the report.
