Well, if we look around, we will find that personal assistants like Alexa, Google Assistant, Cortana, Siri, etc. were the latest trend. These voice assistants are making our life more comfortable. However, they are not as private as everyone thinks.
Lots of silicon valley tech giants have already come forward about their use of human contractors to listen to audio recordings of users. Companies behind these voice assistant services hire human contractors to review the voice clips.
Microsoft Admits Humans Listen to Skype, Cortana Recordings
This thing was done to improve the quality of the voice assistant apps. Google and Apple were already found saving user’s recordings to enhance its AI assistant skills, and the latest one to join the list is Microsoft.
It’s also worth to note that Microsoft is recording the audio only for the Skype translation, not the Skype audio and video calls. However, Cortana is recording everything, including all your questionable requests.
