Meet the police's new crime-fighting assistant: Alexa
from By Bambi Majumdar
Police in the U.K. have a new recruit: Amazon's Alexa, the "smart" virtual assistant. In a new experimental initiative launched by the Lancashire Constabulary, Alexa will log reports of crime and provide daily updates to the public. The police will use a dedicated app to issue local news briefings to Amazon Echo owners. This is not the first time Amazon has been linked to crime-fighting, and the use of these new technologies could lead to a whole range of legal and privacy issues.
