The first word the child was

Lottie Ledger and mark Brady from the UK told Caters news Agency that their year-old child said his first word. It sounds like «Alex», and the word he said before «mother» or «the Pope». As you might guess, that's the name of the voice assistant from Amazon that is built into the device Echo.

First, the Parents thought it was funny. Their son Joe communicated with the device in the home and grandparents. Apparently, it is Alexa most actively answered the child.

When the news spread across the world via the New York Post, many saw the situation is not so harmless. Immediately reminded of the videos in YouTube and Facebook, where they actively communicate with Alexa and others . Parents began to think about the impact of these products on their children's future.

Alexa for children from the point of view Amazon

Of Course, Amazon in this case are satisfied. The company even released a special version of the device Echo Dot for kids. Features of this device is limited. In addition, it comes in a more vivid and attractive colors for children. Echo Dot for kids can read books and even automatically filter profanity in the songs. The difference is that using a child device can't buy anything.

So grow later users of the products and services Amazon. In the future, the children who communicated his childhood with voice assistants, will use them much more actively, including to make purchases that Amazon is extremely important. Siri has been around for almost 7 years, but many users of Apple devices are still not used to it. Our children will be used, if the house will be equipped with devices like Amazon Echo.

Alexa for children from the user's perspective

If the first word the little boy actually became the name of the voice assistant, it's quite disturbing. Let's not forget that voice assistants not only give us information, but collect it. They collect it in order to give us the information that may be of interest to us. That is now working advertising online. But do we really want Amazon or Google was showing our children is that children would be willing to see or hear?

Another question – whether happy our children are grown up to the fact that companies like Google, Amazon and Facebook began collecting data about them before they really learned to speak. It is no secret that major technology companies from a certain period began to receive a lot of information about us. However, our childhood was left untouched. Today we can hardly give something like that to a new generation, and in some cases, Amazon will know about the child more than know his parents.
