Government to partner with Amazon's Alexa to offer NHS health advice

Comment

Oh that is too funny. My Amazon device can't even play the right song and even just last night it randomly woke up in the middle of a foreign language movie and started rambling on about something random as it had decided someone (in the tv program!) had asked it a question! At some point things like diagnostic AI bots (Babylon) and Alexa type AIs will be of use. Presently it's just hype and emperor's new clothes time and it's a shame the government wastes time and money on these schemes rather than sorting out the underlying issues.
