CHICAGO (NewsNation Now) — Amazon wants us all to stop talking to its voice assistant Alexa so much.

The move comes as the tech giant is trying to improve its AI assistants to anticipate what humans want and when they want it.

Tom Taylor, Alexa’s senior vice president, said the move is about “adding intelligence through the system to make the devices better.”
