Amazon Patents New Alexa Feature That Detects When You’re Sick and Sells You Medication

The Infinite Brief
Amazon has patented a new version of its virtual assistant Alexa which can automatically detect when you’re ill and offer to sell you medicine.

The proposed feature would analyze speech and identify other signs of illness or emotion.

Adverts for sore throat products could be automatically played to people who sound like they have a sore throat, Amazon’s patent suggests.

Amazon describes a system where Alexa can tell by your voice if you’re feeling bored and tired, and then it would suggest things to do for those moods.
