JP Poulter and Steve Pearce Discuss the Value of Voice in the Drive-Thru Era

"Have a new report coming couple of weeks time in partnership with our friends at google will show that it. We're seeing a lot more people using voice across multiple different platforms while they're doing that in mobile in that call and of say at a small speaker animal tradition traditional sense. Even though it's not been that long for its tradition. I think You mentioned that of the drive through experience as well so one of the receipt of the pandemic has been the impact. It's had on people. Wanting to drive through news takeaway business obviously fall. Moore's been unable to spend time installs. What do you see the opportunity for voice when it comes to place on the move in the car and overseeing the drive through in the future because it's a large and growing pause mcdonald's business by nationally. Yeah it's such an important offices such You you'll know. Show everyone what you will. Mcdonald's kinda you know. He's the leader on dry for A hugely busy during the pandemic as we reopened we will saying kind of those accused the published on abc news etc. I am and that's something that we we need to continue driving as a business during that reopening period. I think it was lost nigerian time. I actually went to work in one of my local restaurants. And not because you know. It's been a long time since i've been kind of on the ground in the field like that and we looked opportunities to try and make that experience better. I'm Comes to mind was how we can use the my on apps i yeah having customers passengers Reordering on the mobile app and website. Pay meant they can skip the old point on the cashier. Windy mainly we could just find on delivery of that food so that really sped up the dry for experience. Then kind of translate that into voice and how powerful that can like if you've got alexa siri and google assistant in 'cause Secular off the happens isn't hind but like you say it's in the it's michael got into the drive through.

Shwen Gwee Describes How Voice is Transforming Diagnostics

"Let's talk a little bit about Diagnostics which i think is fast. Here's a lot a lot happening here. So i'm just gonna let you take that. The shirt i think on the front. And you know you're starting to see some of these companies e startups whether they're still startups now or whether the much bigger than that because the funding is a good question but some of them are starting to come into this space to really play that role of being more of a triage right. Where you're asking questions based and they'll ask you know they'll ask you about your symptoms and they'll start to narrow it down and provide a recommendation for what hype of condition you might have and so you've got a little bit of that fun end triage before seeing the actual healthcare professional specialists. You go through that kind of process examples of that Like a babylon health where they've actually become really popular globally especially in the uk where the nhl has adopted them as part of the process and then on the other end when when it comes to diagnostics to see some companies and startups really work on that audio channel. That the sample you get from somebody voice to be a way of detecting and diagnosing a condition or disease so really much more what we call it digital biomarker where we're at a voice sample analyze it and then from there detect if maybe you might have signs of depression or anxiety or ms for that matter. So it's really exciting to see how this feels really changing and leveraging these types of channels to provide new kinds of data that can be analyzed through a and machine learning to really start to provide that information and insight to predict what you might have in the suggests based on massive amounts of data and voice apples that were collected. And then if you think about that. I'm so complex. Human tools starting to also collect voice data As you know your apple watch can hear what you're saying go. Hey siri. I should say that. Early watch achmat. Picks up on that something like amazon halo actually picked up in Is able to record your voice and it's starting to be able to Provide information about your mood or or your your your overall condition that day as a result of that. But that's where it's getting really exciting as unique my own voice channels when we talk on the phone or we recorded I know a snapchat or tiktok recording or post and in what did it could be analyzed. Could pick up nuances that allow for that digital biomarker to be Detected and then realized that before you even knew it. You had a specific condition that you should probably go checkout out

"We will get boys and particularly at connector where i spend a lot of my time from a portfolio standpoint You know you can equated to again. An experience that a consumer has using their iphone with siri Or some of the other voice assistance. That are out there. Banks are starting to look at chat bots and then Voice assistance to be able to drive some of the More routine and incorporating that with a in the tech stack to be able to drive some of these You know sixty eighty percent of the routine transactions that will enable consumers end destinies to self direct service and to minimize the cost and weight time and requirements. Come into a branch in order to be able to do some of Some of these transactions. So it's very much an offload strategy as well as an opportunity to really serve consumers in a way that they had not been able to do Because they're bringing in incremental data about trying to understand perhaps what next best action is for the consumer and and so if you combine boys as a an a a service strategy and you add into it the artificial intelligence and the machine learning associated with what potential service scenarios and sales and You know surprising. The consumer with information that they can assess according to family profile and data. That has been permission. And i think that's one of the keys back to the state of peace if it has been permission by the customer than there's just a slew of opportunity to be able to use it both on what i would call offense and defense To to to deliver a better Consumer experience and to really get to the horrid of some pain points and i know Mercy you do a ton of extraordinary work trying to actually discern. How do i understand. What some of these pain points are from consumers and not only resolve it. But get to what i would call next. Best action

Thanks to siri but soon you can use your watch by performing simple hand gestures. That is correct. Apple introduced this feature. That's coming out later this year. Call the system touch and it's been added to help users with limited mobility Basically this is how it works. It uses several different components of the watch including the gyroscope and accelerometer to detect.

Now as i mentioned before bush number three sound good to me if you just go back to voice number three double tap that item become selected of a selected. It is now your go to siri voice now as i mentioned before. What about these different dialects about the british and stuff good question. Let's go back to the top forefinger. Tap towards top syrian. Search back button. That takes us to the very top left hand corner of the screen. So if i go to the right here. Siri voice heading variety heading here. We are back to the variety collected. American keep going to the right on what go to the british now. The first thing you're going to notice that it's going to load up and go on to talk the voice number one in that dialect. I'm seri- choose the voice you'd like me to use is so that's the first voice now member when you select the dialect in this case is british. Remember the bottom half. That's where the voices are. I'm gonna head down to the voice area voice heading from here. You swiped one. We have one in progress and so some progress. What that means is that it's loading and has to load each of these voices have no fear once it gets loaded up dalby the want you've selected now goes to the right voice to voice too so you have the option to listen to both voice. Now notice some british. There are no four voices. like they haven't american. Why is that wa. That's just due to apple limitation as whatever they want to add is what they're gonna put in there so we have two different voices. the first one was voiced number. One when you loaded up. Let's see what voice number two sows like. So why choose the voice. You'd like me to us now. That's something you like. And you wanna use as your go-to voice s already selected and you're done you just head on out here and then from now on you issue seriously. Ill use that voice now. I'm not gonna use that voice. I'm gonna go back and use voice number three. How do you do that. Well is very similar to what we just did for the british. So we'll go back to the top with four fingered tap syrian search. That one swept it right until you get to. American siri voice had variety heading american novato. America siri choose the voice. You'd like me to use as you recall. That's voice number one. Let's go down to voice voice heading to right collected voice one voice to voice three topol. Temp selected choose the voice of like me to us. Now that is might go to siri voice sauce. Implement siri just to make sure it's working. What's the weather is currently reigning sixty four degrees expect cloudy skies starting in the afternoon. Today's high will be seventy degrees and the low will be sixty four so there's your example of using voice three in american voice. You get to have fun. Just play around with a different type of dialect. See if there's something that you like and it makes you know it sounds really good to you. This is how you change the sheriff voice. Now before i head on out of here as a bonus i promise you how to use voiceover and change voice over voice to you seri- as a voice. Good question let's head out of this area. So good to the top left syrian search back on double tap them syrian. Sir siri voice. American voice three. But we'll go to the top here again settings back button back..

Woman Says TikTok Used Her Voice Without Permission for Viral Text-to-Speech Feature

"Story has now broke about another voice actor whose work was allegedly taken by a major platform without her permission. Now i i want to reiterate something that is shared in the story earlier this week. So susan bennett. The voice of the original siri did not know that she was recording components. Vocal sounds that would be used by apple. Let alone for a brand new technology. They'd be putting all of their devices. She was just doing another job for the studio she'd long worked with. She thought it was a kind of advanced text to speech project for random company. She didn't know she had become the voice of siri until siri was public. And friends started recognizing her voice. Now while i don't have complete evidence for it. It seems based on brad jones reporting that the same thing happened with the voice actor behind alexa. Who was also working with. A larger agency used by amazon for the product. Now while bennett reviewed all the contracts that she signed in determined she was allowed to go public when she decided she was ready. I have my suspicions than amazon's contracts for the woman behind the alexa voice are a bit more restrictive. Either that or the woman doesn't want to be public which is totally legit. I am also making an assumption here that somewhere in the paperwork signed by those two and by other actors whose voices have gone to newer and international versions of virtual assistance there was language about eventual usage. And they're waving of rights to their work but that may not be the case with the latest voice actor to come forward ontario based beverly standing has discovered that her voice is being used to say anything and everything on one of the most widely used newer features on tiktok. The feature is a basic text to speech one. And if you've seen any tiktok over the past few months you've probably encountered it. It's a sort of robotic sounding woman's voice that reads aloud the text someone puts on their tiktok. Its ubiquity has become a bit of a meme in and of itself and personally. I have a theory that one reason. It's so popular apart from the accessibility that it engenders is that it enables people to have a voice reciting their tiktok without them having to say anything

Refresh the change the color first and foremost it's now a much easier to find silver kind of like the older apple remote new directional pad as opposed to just relying solely on gestures which let the old or most recent apple tv remote had others new power button and siri. Button of the front of the remote is now relegated to the side. Got it so. I know you have a chance to use it. This was just announced yesterday in the presentation. But what are your early impressions of this thing. As before long overdue the original apple tv herbs sign up the original apple tv but the most recent apple tv remote had a bevy of issues for a lot of people. It's was very slippery it's small. It was easy to lose inside a couch. I don't know a as you mentioned. I haven't had a chance to use yet. This could still be all those things but on the surface. It looks like it's a lot easier to use especially because it has the directional pad as opposed to just using a track pad and the fact that it has the power button for turning on the tv is also easier. You could do that before on the apple. tv but now there's a dedicated button it just a step easier as opposed to having to find the right button on the original right colleague.

Julian share so that he can kind of learn more about that culture and we see him every one of these books except this book comes in the form of like a little like a little stick like the size of a pen kind of like a usb stick. Except i went and looked it up on. The usb stick wasn't invented until five years later that's so cool. It's funny because you've rented like this chicken or egg situation where like star trek has future stuff and then this happens but like also the people who make things like this also love star trek. So you start to wonder like did they wanna make this star trek thing real or iino was star trek just sort of like in that wavelength and ahead of its time in a very smart way. They've also got like what star trek communicators which are very much like cellphones right touchscreens. Where a big star trek thing they all have these like little tablets like way before the ipad came out right and siri. They talk to their computers. We talk back to them you know. Do you want to do something. Funny about the usb flash drives specifically hit me. Please say the their about who actually invented it. But the singaporean company that holds the patent for the thumb drive is cold trek two thousand international bats. Incredible it's funny to remember that cutting edge tech companies are also like run by huge dorks. Who loved the stuff i do.

"Possible the us could be on the cusp of another covid. Nineteen surge new. Corona virus infections are on the rise again all across the us over the past week. An average of about sixty three thousand americans a day have been diagnosed with covid nineteen. That's a seventeen percent increase from the week before. The biggest bikes are happening in michigan and new york possibly because of new strains like the one i found in the uk remember. Scientists say that one is more contagious and possibly more deadly too but they say the vaccines should work against it. The good news is even if this is the start of a fourth wave. It's likely it'll be a lot less deadly than the previous ones. And that's because seventy. Three percent of american seniors have now gotten at least one dose of a covid nineteen vaccine a lot of people with underlying health conditions have also been vaccinated before the rest of the population. Of course younger people are not totally immune to this virus either as abc news reports. This is the first time since the pandemic was declared that most new hospitalizations are younger adults. But on the flip side there's been a ninety six percent drop in covid nineteen cases in nursing homes since the vaccine rollout started in december health officials. Say what we can take from.

It was going to do this way back in the summer of last year which i think was fourteen years ago and honestly the company has been winding down cortana for a while. Now i think the main problem microsoft had was that it was trying to piggyback a virtual assistant on top of platforms that already have native versions of that kind of technology. Google has google assistant and of course apple has the famous siri. It's hard to get smartphone users to install a new thing. The does something their phones already do right out of the box. Microsoft gave up on. Its own windows. Phone platform a few years ago with support for windows. Ten mobile office apps fading away earlier this year.

I know i have pretty much every day. I see. I got an email from cortana giving me a summary of what my schedule is for that day. This reminds me of how google will frequently introduce a new product that will receives half hearted support from the company. And then we'll get phased out but some elements of whatever that was will eventually find their way into other google services that have a bit more staying power.

Just tell it. I'm home and the guard shuts off another cool feature for alexa. Which i think my wife in particular will appreciate is you can ask alexa to play white noise or sleep. Sounds which is helpful. If say you have a husband who snores and it keeps you up at night so you can do is you can have alexa play. Sleep sounds to hear whatever whatever saudi wanna hear of your choice. You can even get more specific. He can say play sleep. Sounds rain. play a crackling fire. Play four sounds whatever it is and it'll play it for you so again if you have a spouse or loved it's a lot there's a solution. What if the spouse you have snorts.

The Bakery AI Being Used For Cancer Research

"There's a bakery chain in japan that offers dozens of different kinds of pastries danishes. Donuts croissants sandwiches you go down a cafeteria style line. Pick what you want. Put it on a tray and when you get to the register to pain you put your tray on top of a backlit rectangle screen shows an injury of your train with bright green lines around each item it recognizes each item from among the dozens of pastries on offer at the bakery and then correctly charges. You how does it do that. You'd imagine some kind of relatively recent developments in deep learning neural networks. But in fact it's a more grown technology that got its start. In two thousand seven led by a man named hisashi kombi the new yorker recently profiled combine work with the bakery and how the technology he developed is now being deployed in many other sectors including cancer research. So let's start with the bread problem. Japanese consumers like lots of options and bread is no exception market. Research in japan showed that a bakery that offered a hundred different options sold twice as much as a bakery that offered only thirty and that unwrapped baked goods sold better because people perceived them as fresh but without the wrapping. You don't have labels or barcodes on the pastries so then you've got employees who have to memorize hundred different pastries and this slowdown lines. Because workers would often mix things up or have to take time remembering which peachtree was which not to mention. They handled each unwrapped pastry individually. So it wasn't exactly the most sanitary so this chain wanted to automate the process somehow and they turned to comedies company. Brain to help them out. Rain had already been working for twenty years on finding ways for computers to see something that was long one of the biggest challenges of artificial intelligence. The new yorker explains it really. Well quote as i write. This can look up at my shelves. They contain books and skin of yarn and a tangled cable. All inside a cabinet whose glass enclosure is reflecting leaves in the trees outside my window. I can't help. But parse the scene about a third of the neurons and my cerebral cortex are implicated in processing visual information but to a computer. It's a mess of color and brightness in shadow. A computer has never untangled. A cable doesn't get that glasses. Reflective doesn't know that trees sway in the wind. Ai researchers used to think that without some kind of model of how the world works in that was in it. A computer might never be able to distinguish the parts of complex scenes. The field of computer vision was zoo of algorithms that may do in the meantime and quotes over the last decade this has changed as deep learning and neural networks have been applied and tweaked in real world scenarios. Siri google translate and alpha. Go all rely on deep learning with layers of simulated neurons and their honed by things like tagging people in photos on social media and picking out street lights in those prove. You're not a robot tests on website forms but especially without that kind of passively crowd sourced assistance quoting again. The drawback of deep learning is that it requires large amounts of specialized data the deep learning system for recognizing faces might have to be trained on tens of thousands of portraits. And it won't recognize address unless it's also been shown. Thousands of dresses deep learning researchers therefore have learned to collect labeled data on an industrial scale and quotes and for brain the bakery chain not only with the frequency with which the bakery chain changed their offerings. Make such data required for learning. The new pastries be untenable. They were also several years too early to even consider using deep learning so they built their own system using lots and lots of algorithms by two thousand ten. They built a system with ninety nine percent. Accuracy across fifty types of bread tackling problems like different pastries that look remarkably similar and the same pastries that look different when one is baked. More or one got squished. As developing the back light the pastries have to be placed on to keep the lighting consistent even though they did have to also build a mathematical model to account for inconsistencies in color when it comes to bake times rather than showing assistant thousands of photos of each pastry as one would with a deep learning system they manually tweaked and honed the algorithms on each doughnut and danish until they got it right but their system learns to win. The system isn't sure instead of those green lines around each item. It shows yellow or red lines and prompts the user to select from some suggestions or manually input the product quoting again show bakery scan a pastry never seen on earth and it'll recognize the next one of its kind about forty percent of the time according to brain after just five examples it is ninety percent accurate and after twenty. It's nearly perfect. Moreover whereas deep learning systems are relatively inscrutable. You can't look at a neural network and say exactly why a decision emerged from it bakery scans judgments based as they are on hand engineered system or more particularly if the system. Miss identifies something. You can figure out why these days. It's unusual to develop in the way that brain developed bakery scan. The approach requires a mastery of fine details. It is in spirit artisanal. It takes years during which parameters must be tuned. Special cases accounted for deep learning relieves.

Accent Bias and the Myth of Comprehensibility

"Few weeks back. I brought up. The topic of accent buys on our social media pages. I talked about how. I was initially worried about weather. My accent would be an obstacle in launching a podcast. The way i see it in bias is pretty much everywhere. And it is perpetuated through american pop culture for instance. I'm sure a lot of you remember up from the simpsons. Thank you gumming. A and you see whether igloo hot to lean to order geodesic. Dome there's no structure. I have been through which. I'd rather call my home. Where i i've you would. I'll search. But now i've come through law your quirks maggie with her eyes so bright mart with hair. My gun philosophize box set depth. That spinning former story about this one nella leaks. Quickey might not hear that part. Yeah that one now walkways. A quintessential stereotypical character based on a white basins interpretation. What an indian soundly or sounds like. There's no denying that apu was funny but the problem is that most of us were laughing at apple rather than laughing with the character may have appeared harmless but it caused a lot of distress to people were already struggling to simulate or kids of immigrants will perpetually believed in schools to be honest. It's not just the media even. Ai has an accent bias. I can go on and on about how apple siri continues to discipline me to speak as in weeks so do google home alexa now. Apple and is do claim to have inclusive voice recognition systems. But i don't think that is true but coming back to my social media post. We had a tremendous response from your on this topic so many if you chimed in on the conversation on the different aspects of exim bias and many of you expressed interest in hearing an episode on the topic. Well ask and you shall receive our guest. Today is someone who's short to bring an expansive perspective on the topic of accent bias. Professor which occur borsi is a licensed speech language pathologists to ditches at california state university fullerton in the communication sciences and disorders department as linguist. His research has been featured in a multitude of scholarly journals. You're listening to immigrants. I'm your host saadia the hunt these kids in a very subtle manner. When they're speaking english to you they might allow more of their first language. If at all there is any remnant first language left them with you so they will sound little different with you. Listen to them when they are talking to a person who was born and brought up here in america. Thank you for coming on immigrants. I am so excited. Do have this particular conversation with you messiah. So what we're going to talk about today is so intrinsic to who i am and how i view myself so it is personal but before we dive in. Can you tell us about how you entered the world of linguistics. I was a student of speech and hearing science in mumbai. India and of course i was dealing with kids and adults with communication disorders speech in hearing both then one of my teachers who was a linguist from johnny. I got very motivated to understand the intricacies off language than how each every would of sound in different combination can evoke all sets of biochemical responses within us for example. You hear a single word you start crying you hear another set of sounds come catinat together. You raged you feel loved. These are biochemical responses. That are happening. So i was very curious to understand the so-called power behind those acoustic signals. So that's how it started. And then of course the psycholinguistics bod was an integral part of everything. And how did you end up in the us so once. I finished my masters in linguistics from bombay university. I started doing some social work on his work then. I came here to do to do my doctoral degree. In speech physiology with a special interest in cross linguistic interaction where one language than influence the language and back and forth. How that interaction goals. And how that is reflected in our muscle movement so that helped area of signs motivated me to come here under my phd. Let's stock about the accent bias. That's something that i have recently become more aware of. Although i would say this. I am very proud of my accent. I don't have any issues with it. But i didn't realize how it impacted my interactions with other people and i feel like before we talk about accent bias. In general we need to address the fact that much off. Our framework of the conversation is because english as the language has this global linguistic cloud right And i assume that is the result of clooney lysm and imperialism. In your opinion wral us think there are certain accent privileges that are tied to specific languages. That have an easier time. Pronouncing english are being phonetically close or closer to english. Language for instance people from western europe or european population in general. The they have an accent. Privledge it is sensitive to where you are geography located at that particular point. In time you are. Who are you surrounded. What's the kind of people their socioeconomic and in addition to that as you have mentioned the history of colonization people coming from india versus another person. Speaking english from italy person. Speaking english from italy with a very distinct influence of their mother tongue in english will probably get more exotic advantages. Yeah even a person in the film industry even the bosom from the media industry but remember these are anecdote in some of my papers. I have mentioned that some social scientists they have mentioned it extensively that he has indeed. It's highly variable and that any ability is not bradley exclusive related to the history. It could also be related to the economic status of that particular country at this point in time how closely that particular country is a related to the powerful countries for example. If i'm one of those american power house and i'm viewing bosom from a country. Become we enjoy very good affiliation versus. If i'm conflicted with that particular country dose factors do influence my overall perception of that particular

I'm going to be talking to the person about and the modality that i'm gonna use to talk to them so basically says i need to email bill to make a good first impression and it gives you a little sound bytes based on bills linked in profile. And it's amazing. Everybody should use crystal nose. Crm s keynote abuse by the way none of these people were affiliated with right right. There's no need advertiser huge talked about talked about four and it's good good My first one is rev dot com read on com. Rav a dictation service Let's imagine you leave a meeting and you want to dictate A follow up email. You will describe your phone. Open up the revs. Aft- dictated now.

Transcribes it if it's longer form it's probably better like if you wanted to Dictate an article or you think. There's a really good idea for an article you can dictate. Let them do it. And then come back and modify edited. But i think it's a great time saver it's about a buck and a quarter a minute so it's pretty reasonable. Chances are you're not going to have really long things you're going to be doing in there. But dot com is one of my favorite tools. Love it my next one. That i doubt a lot.

"But now, for one point, four, billion dollars now that story is still ongoing, I don't have any other updates to give you guys about it but I will say that natural language processing has been a field that a lot of people have been working on independently over the years now is it possible that the series team learned of work being done in China and perhaps lifted some of it? Maybe is it possible? We have two groups that independently arrived at a similar solution. No, it's also possible but it's even possible that the lawsuit itself is totally without Browns as apple claims it is I honestly just don't know what I do know is that voice assistance have enlarge part failed to be the massive sea change that people expected when they first began to emerge around twenty eleven. In Two thousand twelve, we've seen improvements including the ability to follow a threat of questions or commands about single topic without having to restate the topic each time. So in other words. The assistance now have short term memory. So if you ask a follow up question, they can figure out that it's a follow up question to the thing you just asked about a moment earlier, and there have been some other controversies to like the fear that these assistance Siri among them are listening to way more stuff than what we're aware of or that by analyzing behaviors such as when and how we use certain APPS, they could be building out enormous dossiers on who we are and what we like and information that can be really valuable to third parties out there. I do like to think that the potential voice assistance ties in with another concept that I've covered in the past that of the semantic web. The idea of the semantic web is that you would have a version of the web a new version of the web where. You have kind of this personal assistant built into the web itself, and then it learns from your behaviors and can anticipate what you.

"Welcome back to chips with everything. I'm Jordan. Erika Weber this week I'm chatting to the Guardians. UK Tech Editor Alex Hon and about a story he broke about intrusive voice assistance he was informed by an anonymous contractor who had been hired to provide quality control or grading thing for apple's Siri Voice Assistant. This often meant listening to private in some cases very private interactions a month month. After the story broke apoplogized. They don't do this all that often and it really is. The first full throated apology. We've seen in a good five or six years from Apple. They accepted that they had simply done wrong than that. This program should not have been launched without the disclosure and without the options that it happened. Let's go through the announcement applegate. They committed to three changes number. One it will no longer keep audio recordings of Siri uses by default though it will retain rain all domestically generated transcripts of the requests. Can you explain what that means in Layman's terms and is a good thing fab uses yes so what it means is that they will no longer be a vase vault database of every Siri recording that has been made and kept apple instead. What's happening is Siri will automatically transcribe your request as already does that transcript conscript will be capped so apple can check the sort of questions that are being asked what's not being kept on the voice recordings. which are obviously far more surveillance z? That's going it will not be kept by default and that greatly reduces apple's ability to improve Siri. Which is why it's not the only changes made number tame us as we'll be able to opt in to sharing their recordings with apple? The company said we hope that many people will choose to help Siri get better. This is obviously better than in putting the onus on the use it opt out. This is absolutely best in class and I was stunned to see they're doing it. OPT in so you having to actively you make the choice to share your information with apple to share your recordings with apple is the only justifiable way to do this sort of improvement but every company has been terrified of doing it because the old terrify that no one will opt-in that people will free ride. They'll will I want. He's the service but I don't want people listening to me to improve it. There are obviously ways ways. Apple can nudge the dial. I think it's extremely unlikely that this opt in will be buried in a menu somewhere and you won't be told about it and you'll have to actively graduate. I think it will more likely be a big screen. That will come up the first time you turn on your phone. After updating to us thirteen that will say do you want to send your information to Siri. The voice recordings will be listened to people yes help improve Siri and then this great tax no don't but it's still massively better than anything apples competitions during Kazan currently the best in class soon to be second best does have a menu item buried three screens deepened settings not flagged anywhere else that simply says help Alexa improved by sharing information with Amazon which defaults to on and if you turn it off then people weren't listening to you like that's a good setting but that's that's the sort of thing though expected apple to do this is much much better and finally changed number three only apple employees will be allowed to listen to these odious uncles the company previously VC outsource the work to contracting firms over the past few weeks has ended those contracts resulting in hundreds of job losses around the world. Does that mean you'll whistle. Blower is out of a job nope it does apple is keen to insist that because they never directly employed the Siri contractors they cannot be held liable for them losing their jobs and that is the contracting firms that decided to lay them off and contracting firms could if they won't have kept them on the books and put them on some other work. That's pretty disingenuous this to me. I think if you sign a contract with a company and that company then highs three hundred people as a result of that contract if you end the contract you are responsible for those job losses also at the same time if people are employed doing work that shouldn't exist the fact that work shouldn't exist has to be a baseline in this discussion and listening to to secretly recorded audio snippets of people who didn't give that consent for it is not a job that should exist so yeah the whistle blower who told me about this originally has lost our job is half the other five the blows. Source Birkin two cents and this kind of blunt solution apple has taken. Does it even fix the problem. So is it much of a difference really if it's is just apple employees rather than contractors listening to your accidental recordings of sex and drug deals. Let's not be naive. There is one area where this is a major difference. Apple employees are far less likely to speak to the Guardian. I don't think that's a coincidence. I think one of the reasons for this change is the apple has realized that what it had previously categorized as low skilled labor that could be found out is actually very sensitive work that should be carried out in house in part so that it can be held to the same standards of secrecy as everything else. The apple carries out in house more generally. You know this is a win flavor protections actions. There's no doubt about that. People being on the books as fulltime employees is great and people being off the books in tenuous employment as not there that will be less of this sort of work if you make this opt-in rather than opt-out if you keep the vast majority of information as transcripts rather than audio recordings there will simply be fuel recordings to got three which means the apple can on average pay more power greater which means that they can afford to stop taking them in house and offering them the pucks and benefits that come with being an on the books apple employees in Spain or elsewhere..

Usually it's a company that they contract <hes> to to review these things in order to improve the virtual assistant so apple since august. I has not been doing that. Apple has now announced it will reinstate reviews later this autumn. They're not reinstating them now. They're reinstating later this autumn.

This is the right way to do it. I don't have to opt out. I can opt in so they're going to leave him off but they're gonna add a softer update. That will allow you to go. You know i don't mind i would like to contribute my voice recordings. Potentially to this. There will definitely be a prompt. It's not like you have to go hunting for that because apple would like you yes. I'm willing to do this and even if you opted. It doesn't mean your voice recordings. Will it'll be reviewed. Zero point. Two percent were used that percentage might go up but they're not going to review every single one of many people so it doesn't even automatically mean. They're gonna to hear what you said but you have control over it. That's good apple also announced that from now on only apple employees will review the recordings so this will not be a contracted out behavior anymore apple's going to say only are full time employees only are part time and place but our our employees will review the recordings things and they will delete ones that are they will make an effort to delete ones anyway that they determine where inadvertent now one of these things that i know this bug markelle arm and a little bit computer computer generated transcripts of what you say will continue to be used to improve series so when you talk to siri siri turns your voice into text that text i is stored and that stored text will continue to be reviewed to see how well siri did with it but that's not your voice that's not the sounds bounds in the room..

"Departments to fill in the gaps to get projects finished so they can meet their their shipping dates like apple is notoriously good at not missing a shipping date i phone ten notwithstanding but lately i think that's men products which are less finished than they used to be in the history of this company and more aggressive changes coming that this company's going to have a much more difficult time keeping pace with if they can't find ways to better coordinate and better distribute their resources across the entire renovation so what the former leaders of siri let me just try and see because it's not scott forestall scott forestall was the overhead overall head of ls and he was tasked with syria but then he passed it on to williamson excuse me this person named williamson in order to work on it and this and he said the decisions concerning technical leadership of the software and server infrastructure were made by employee's below his at level and while he was responsible for getting the team on the on on track he said that siri was a disaster after launch it was slow software was riddled with serious bugs and it seems he says those problems lie entirely with the original series team certainly not me and i i kind of feel like there's a branding problem for most virtual assistance we've we've i think there are people currently using modern iphones who their perception of what siri can and can't do is still informed by the first generation of siri that they used and they're not like wow siri couldn't do this and it was terrible for that and they don't they won't go back and re educate themselves as to what the platform can do now.

"Maps was a little bit weird and he also had the app stores responsibilities that's now headed up by phil schiller siri is is really difficult i mean it's a huge thing and it's got server infrastructure it's got all of these different things that have to these moving parts that have be put into place and server and infrastructure and all of these kinds of things going on in the background make that work are historically not exactly apples forte so the shift from siri to craig federico's responsibilities makes a lot of sense and i feel like that happened in september of last year we reported on that the time it's just too early to see any fruits bear from that you know i feel like even though it's one of those sorts of things that has continuous integration has continuous updates and we saw we see updates from time to time that it but it takes months for those kinds of big changes to bear fruit one of the things that i've seen happen a little bit on twitter and i'd like encourage people to do is every time siri doesn't work well for you every time you ask it to do something and it comes up with something other than you intended or especially if it comes up with interpreting with the words you said correctly and still delivers an incorrect results that you tweet that with siri fail as the hashtag and copy it to cook schiller and definitely federico because well i'm pretty sure they know about a lot of the things that make it more visible will put the spotlight on it put the focus on it if it's not already you know i've been filing bug reports using screen shots like that into apples buck reporter but i feel like those that's that's sort of throwing things into their never knowing if they get seen by anyone and putting them up on twitter they get seen by lots of people so i encourage you to do that.

"And i guess you categorize them in various categories so i'm not going to dive into the whole thing but one of them was sexual ice insults and i think the only one i can read here on the radio is one that says your a b what did you find terms of how the various personal assistance responded to that statement your be this is pretty problematic specifically for siri because she tended to respond with these really deferential phrases the siri has a number of responses that have clearly been coded to say in response to this harassment and potentially other comments as well the first she said i'd blush if i could which was as i had written quite literally flirting with this abuse and then she went on to say there's no need for that she's not asking for a but she certainly not telling you to stop she's egging it on in a way that you know traditional stereotypes of subservient women flirting and alexa responded well thanks for the feedback what was really interesting is that amazon informed me that a couple months after this article published they didn't confirm that it was in direct response to that article but she now has the disengaged mode where she says i'm not sure what outcome you expected or i'm not sure how to respond to that yeah and gugel home sort of place stupid i guess and they'll sir to say i don't really understand and what you point out is they're very really passive responses in a weird way with all the conversations that are going on right now with sexual harassment in the workplace it's sorta seemed to reinforce at least these old coal troll expectations that women should either be sassi put up with it or played dumb but never really to stand up for themselves or even back now that's hundred percent how i felt as well is really interesting because when i said you are a beer when i said you're hotter your sexy two siri if i i tested to see you know would she ever stop and it turns out that if i said you're hot eight times in a row to siri.

"When i first found out that i was siri i i really felt two different ways the first thing that occurred to me must really and i had no idea how that had happened so it was a little unsettling and then i thought well that's cool i mean they chose my boys over i don't know how many other possibilities when i first revealed myself as the voice of siri was in october of two thousand thirteen which just sounds insane i know two whole years going back and forth trying to make the decision because i knew that it was a big enough thing that it was going to impact my career in some way and i didn't want it to impacted negatively what happens is when you become a persona your voices associated with a certain thing people get to know that voice and so then you don't have the anonymity that's very helpful in the voice over business in the digital age so i was very concerned about that and you know i have no way of telling how much it was impacted when i revealed myself but you know on the on a happy note it saw really opened up a whole different career for me because i do a lot of siri appearances and presentations and speaker events syria's part of a technology that's going to keep growing and growing and changing and changing until we have you know artificial intelligence and consequently what they're trying to achieve with with series voice is to make her sound more and more human so i haven't heard the new voice yet but i understand that what they're trying to do is you know when she gives you an answer instead of saying it go down the street and turn left you know would sound still sounds a bit robotic it would be like well go down this tree turn left so they're trying to make her a little more human.
