If you’ve ever doubted the artificial intelligence hype, check out this video of Amazon Alexa pronouncing Europe’s longest place name.
It reels off Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, the name of a Welsh town, as if it were its own home.
Alexa even clarifies that while it’s the longest town name in the world, there’s a hill in New Zealand with an even longer name.
Disappointingly, it doesn’t try to pronounce Taumata whakatangi hangakoauau o tamatea turi pukakapiki maunga horo nuku pokai whenua kitanatahu.
