If HAL-9000 Was Alexa – Voice AI Humor

Who knows HAL-9000? If you haven’t seen 2001: A Space Odyssey you have missed a classic. I’ll guarantee you have heard the music (shoutout to you Voicebot Podcast listeners). Some of the movie is very odd (the beginning and the end), but the real reason you should care is that most of the fear about talking robots stems from this 1968 film. “Open the pod bay doors please, HAL.” What is even better than re-watching the original scene? Seeing a rendition where Alexa takes over the role of HAL. Enjoy some Amazon Alexa humor.
