Amazon is further developing Alexa's capabilities so that the AI will be able to provide opinionated answers to questions asked by users

During CES 2018, Amazon executive Marc Whitten discussed how the company plans to expand on Alexa’s machine learning capabilities to give it the chance to share its opinion when someone asks the digital assistant a question, according to TechCrunch

By working on Alexa’s machine learning programming, the assistant would offer more of its opinions rather than quickly looking through data and choosing the most optimal choice. For example, a person could ask Alexa what restaurant they should go to tonight if they were in the mood for sushi, and the device might choose a smaller location rather than an establishment with the highest ratings.

Amazon wants customers to feel that they can have a conversation with Alexa instead of treating the device like a vocal search engine.
