Amazon said the intonations would also be particularly useful in voice-based games.

Good news for hardware makers, but is this bad news for privacy critics who think there are just too many connected gadgets in homes to rest in a microphone-friendly environment?

Amazon's Alexa has been around for over five years now. Amazon has not only added that ability but has taken it to the next level. Technologically, they use machine learning algorithms "Neural Text-to-Speech" (NTTS), which are able to synthesize voices depending on a universal vocoder.

To use these features, customers first need to enable the Giant Eagle pharmacy Alexa skill and link their account.

K-pop stars get prison terms for sexual crimes
He quit the group, and the entertainment industry, as the sex video scandal erupted in March. Jung admitted distributing the videos, though he claimed that the sex was always consensual.

All of this adds up to creating the so-called 'ambient smart home', where you don't need to speak to a specific device to control something. And When the reminder goes off, customers can ask, "Alexa, what medication am I supposed to take right now?" You've probably heard that story of an Amazon Echos recording entire conversations between two unsuspecting people, and Alexa sent that recording to an acquaintance without the users' consent.

A news report from Techcrunch said the feature would make possible medication reminders and voice refill requests using information from a prescription.

Customers can have Alexa submit an order to refill a prescription, however Amazon doesn't help the flexibility to trace the standing of the request. The online retailer will want to integrate PillPack's capabilities into as many businesses as it possibly can. The bet is a long-term wager on a virtuous cycle: more devices in more consumers' hands means more viewers for Amazon's original television shows, more subscribers to, and more developer interest in building tools for Alexa. The US and Australian users will get the feature before any other market. In this webinar, we'll share real-world strategies and best practices for health insurance leaders on the front lines and explore what's working and how to overcome common challenges.

AWS today announced a number of IoT-related updates that, for the most part, aim to make getting started with its IoT services easier, especially for companies that are trying to deploy a large fleet of devices.
