Voice assistants make using a smartphone more comfortable and simple, but few people think that their work may be non-competitive. On the eve of the Belgian television channel VRT NWS released information according to which Google decrypters have the ability to collect confidential data about users.
It turns out that all conversations with the voice assistant “flow away” to the company's servers and can be used to find out information about the personal life of clients. So, each employee of the company involved in the decoding and operation of the artificial intelligence of the voice assistant, only during the week listens about a thousand requests.
Google said that voice requests are processed by employees without being tied to specific users and the share of the information sent to the audition does not exceed 0.2 percent.
By the way, not so long ago, Bloomberg also caught Amazon's assistant, Amazon, in collecting confidential data.
