Amazon, An Hour discussed on VOICE Global 2021


Tell you how your sound to your boss to your wife. Your husband to your Friends what emotions you articulate simply by the sound of your voice and and of course what they say now is. None of this is going to be shared with with amazon but to me. It's a proof of concept right running right out of the kind of technology in the patent and there are other patents. Take off in that direction. I have a whole chapter which goes into the variety of patents and the ways in which they might be used And so that's just the beginning of a as i say seductive surveillance g we get caught up for you in an hour but what i mean you know yet now. It's it's interesting in the book. You also go into a into a scenario where somebody actually walks into a retail store. And they're having a conversation with the clerk and the clerk can actually wake up the assistant device in the store by saying a phrase that would seem perfectly natural. Like this would look great or something like that remember. The exact phrase was but then the assistant devices listened to the conversation. And they're they're actually gathering information on that customer in real time and helping the store clerk then make up cells and and the the the person drives no idea that basically their voice is becoming their profile and that is based on a patent. that's directly from a patent right. The thing is that people would say well you know how could that possibly be. We don't give permission. It's going to be illegal. That's the seductive surveillance part. It's quite possible to get people to say this is fine and to even give them Loyalty points if they allow various stores to do this right. I mean it's all the terms of service. How many how many of us have read the terms of y'all start. Nobody we've done research on this stuff. Nobody reads it. And i asked my students every year. Does anybody read a. Nobody's read these..
