'That's not true': Amazon's Alexa hilariously interrupted a Qualcomm representative in the middle of a demo at CES

Jim HarrisAudience members watching the streamed version of Qualcomm’s presentation at CES caught Alexa acting up.

Amazon’s Alexa interrupted a Qualcomm representative giving a demo at the CES trade show on Monday afternoon in an eerie sign that artificial intelligence really does have a mind of its own.

Reporters at the event tweeted about Alexa’s notable interruption, in which the voice assistant reportedly responded to the speaker with “No, that’s not true.”

The Qualcomm rep was reportedly giving a live demo on how Alexa works with automobiles, and the device did not perform as intended. Semiconductors for cars are a big area of expansion for Qualcomm.
