amazon echo echo echo ECHOOOO

Owners complained that their voice-activated devices set
off on an inadvertent shopping spree after a California news
program triggered the systems to make erroneous purchases,
according a local report. A morning show on San Diego’s
CW6 News station had been covering a segment about a
six-year-old girl in Texas who ordered to her home a
dollhouse and four pounds of cookies through her parents'
gadget.

Echo devices, powered by Amazon (amzn) Alexa, the tech
giant's artificially intelligent voice assistant, reportedly
woke when they heard the name "Alexa" spoken on household
television sets. Jim Patton, an anchor on the show, had
remarked, "I love that little girl saying 'Alexa ordered me
a dollhouse.'"

The comment proved mischievous. A number of Amazon Echos
registered the statement as a voice command, and placed
orders for dollhouses of their own, the station said.


TLDR: this is situational music made from feedback. amazon
echo triggers (news about amazon echo) which then triggers
[amazon echo] which then triggers <news about news
triggering amazon echo> and presumably these news stories
will result in more dollhouses being ordered. if i had to
dial up TLDR even further, well, the engineering words for
this situation are: open-loop, clusterfuck

but, yes, a six-year old in texas unwittingly created a
feedback loop of national magnitude. she probably has a
future career in electronic music

fact: dollhouses are created by running a normal house
through a fractal scaling mechism (typically implemented
with some amazon' fuckin delay m8)
