An Amazon Echo device gave one woman in the United Kingdom quite a scare after AI virtual assistant Alexa told her to “stab herself” for the good of the planet. The frightening exchange might have some reconsidering the popular gadget as a Christmas gift.
According to The Sun, student paramedic Danni Morritt was in the process of studying the cardiac cycle with the device. Suddenly, the appliance “went rogue” by saying that a fully functioning cardiac cycle was not good at all, since humans were “bad for the planet.”
In a video recording, Morritt was able to capture the disturbing diatribe.
“Many believe that the beating of heart is the very essence of living in this world, but let me tell you, beating of heart is the worst process in the human body,” the device lectured.
“Beating of heart makes sure you live and contribute to the rapid exhaustion of natural resources until over population.”
