Alexa predicts WWIII (@iamnoahbrendan)
There is a growing fear of an all-out war that could break out between NATO countries and Russia due to the West's support for Ukraine and the weapons sent to it last week. At the same time, but no one knows for sure when and of course whether a third world war will break out.
That is - no one except the virtual assistant of the Amazon company, Alexa.
A viral video uploaded to Tiktok and viewed more than 2 million times shows the device answering the question "When will World War III begin" and saying: "World War III begins on November 23, 2023 at 6:05 p.m., when Russia opens In
an attack against Germany."
In follow-up questions, he asked whether different countries would join the war - and received detailed answers with dates for each of them.
When will the world war start?

We know it sounds scary and not entirely far-fetched that this chilling prediction would turn out to be true, but it's important to know that he's not the first to post Alexa prophecy videos.
For example, the successful ticker John Backhouse specializes in publishing fake "Alexa responses".
Among his most successful videos are one claiming that Miami will be completely destroyed by a hurricane in 2025, and another predicting a run for the US presidency by wrestler-turned-action star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (which is actually quite likely, when the WWE star The
former said in 2021 that he would consider a political career if there was enough public demand for it.)
It's not entirely clear how John convinces Alexa to make the dramatic prophecies, but researchers at the fact-checking website Snopes have suggested that he may be using "Alexa Blueprints," that allow the owners of the virtual assistant to create personalized answers to specific questions - for example,

When the tool launched, Amazon explained that it might be useful for providing personalized information like emergency contact information for a babysitter, for example.
Steve Rabuchin, VP at Amazon Alexa enthused: "This is a whole new way for you to teach Alexa skills customized just for you and your family. You don't need any template building or coding experience to get started - my family created our joke templates in minutes , and it was fun to interact with Alexa in a completely new and personal way."
But while promoting the device's capabilities, Steve made no mention of programming it with Nostradamus-like fortune-telling abilities.
