The LO Down: Are Your Devices Listening to You?

Posted by Sawyer Jones on July 19 2019

With so many households, places of business, and professional offices having voice-activated smart home devices, what is happening with all of the audio info? A recent release from Google acknowledges that they actively employ contractors to listen to, record, and transcribe approximately 0.2% of all "Ok Google" commands. This has many people worried about potential implications. Cap that off with a planned raid on Area 51 and we have the makings for a solid "X Files" reboot.  Stay tuned to the end of this week's LO Down for a dramatized look at the current state of Google, Amazon, and Apple.

Hope you found that informative and helpful.  If you still need to get your 2019 CE  follow this link to get all the Online CE you need: Online Training!
