“Tens of millions of people use smart speakers and their voice software to play games, find music or trawl for trivia. Millions more are reluctant to invite the devices and their powerful microphones into their homes out of concern that someone might be listening. Sometimes, someone is.” From Bloomberg: Amazon Workers Are Listening to What You Tell Alexa. Let me interrupt your shock at this turn of events by reminding you that … you … are … talking … into … a … microphone … connected … to … the … internet. (In my house, we only allow my ten year-old daughter to talk to Alexa and Siri. Eventually, she will bend both Amazon and Alexa to her will. And once she’s in charge, she won’t listen to a thing you say.)
