It has recently come to light that Amazon employs thousands of people around the world to listen to and transcribe recording made by Alexa-enabled device users.
Amazon has been extremely secretive about this, no doubt realizing that many of the millions of Alexa users would be alarmed to know their private moments are being eavesdropped on.
What would happen if oppressive governments were to require Amazon to provide them with access to their Alexa recordings and transcripts? What if malicious hackers acquired this data and used it to harass, intimidate or blackmail Alexa users?
There is too much at risk with the emerging widespread use of Alexa and other similar voice AI assistants like Apple's Siri, Google Assistant, and Microsoft's Cortana.
Add your name below to call on Congress to create legislation that limits Amazon and other tech giants from collecting this kind of data!
