Petra the African grey parrot has learned to get what she wants, just by asking. A human can say no, but Google's Alexa is programmed to carry out your wishes. This video is essentially over at two minutes.
Petra made a shopping list on the Amazon Echo. We are having Alexa tell us what the list contains then when we ask Petra WHY she made a list, All she can say is "I want a Peanut"
Yeah, voice recognition in a household assistant is a wonderful thing, but you have to remember that parrots learn your voice and use it. Making a shopping list is not the only thing Petra uses Alexa for.
