SAL 9000 #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

via instructables

I’ve always wanted a working version of HAL 9000 (but without the murderous intent). When Amazon Alexa came out, I got one immediately. Within the first day I asked it to, “open the pod bay doors” and it promptly replied, “I’m sorry Dave. I can’t do that. I’m not HAL and we’re not in space”. At that moment I was determined to find a way to make a HAL-like digital assistant.

Alexa is only available in a female voice and she specifically states that she is not HAL. This made me think of the not-so-great sequel to 2001, “2010 the year we make contact”. It depicts the kinder, friendlier, SAL 9000. She is used to determine why HAL went haywire. I felt this persona fit better with Alexa.
