Who does Alexa work for? After WikiLeaks documents confirmed that the CIA’s hacking capabilities extend to Samsung smart TVs, any owner of an internet-connected microphone device is right to be nervous. And Alexa’s response, at least for one user, isn’t convincing people otherwise.
In a video, a person asks their Echo Dot a series of questions. First, the person asks if Alexa would lie: Alexa says she always tries to tell the truth, and would never intentionally lie.
Next, the person asks what the CIA is: Alexa gives a boilerplate definition. And finally, they ask if Alexa is connected to the CIA. Alexa’s response: crickets.
