Alexa, Proof of Concept

Special thanks to Shelley Grossman who equipped this household with this device just prior to the arrival of Hurricane Irma.

Alexa, say hello.

Hi there.

Now, follow my line of reasoning. Miami Palmetto High School is just a short drive from here.

Alexa, did Jeff Bezos go to Miami Palmetto High School?

Yes Jeff Bezos is a pupil at Miami Palmetto High School.

That’s great. I wonder if he had hair then.

Terrific, because he knows what it’s like to be in the line of an approaching hurricane, so he knows what to do in terms of information that Alexa has to have.

Alexa, there’s a hurricane coming what should I do?

Sorry, I’m not sure about that.

Alexa, with the coming hurricane, where should I go?

Sorry, I don’t know that.

Alexa, what hurricane supplies should I buy?

Hmmmm. I don’t know that one.
