Although AI has proven to be extremely helpful in some applications, it has also been known to make mistakes. Whether these mistakes were small enough to laugh at or serious enough to cause someone’s death, here are some AI fails that prove we still have some serious work to do regarding artificial intelligence.

The Amazon Alexa is a party favorite with its ability to play loud music, skips songs with voice command, and easy connection to Spotify. However, apparently, Alexa likes to party on her own and even get herself into trouble from time to time. In Hamburg, Germany, Alexa owner Oliver Haberstroh was out one night when his Alexa mysteriously turned on and began blasting music at 1:50 a.m. Alexa was causing such a ruckus that the neighbors called the police assuming that there was a party going on far longer than it should have been. When the police came to break up the supposed party they ended up having to break down the door, only to find the Alexa playing music on its own.
