#Amazon is working on a creepy feature that will enable #Alexa to speak in your dead relative’s voice…

By @sourabhjain24 Image
A recent #trend last year allowed users to animate photos of people, which was majorly being used to animate pictures of dead friends and family members. While some people would find this feature comforting, a lot of people found this #creepy.…
If this was not #creepy enough for you, #Amazon is working on a feature that will enable #Alexa to speak in your dead relative’s voice.

L'étude d'Umar Iqbal, un chercheur postdoctoral et son équipe (8 chercheurs dotés de compétences interdisciplinaires travaillant ds 4 universités américaines différentes) montre comment #Amazon bafoue ses politiques de confidentialité en utilisant les…
données vocales des utilisateurs à partir de son service #Alexa.
Ces chercheurs ont créé des personas cibles (la persona est la représentation fictive d’un membre appartenant à un grpe de personnes aux comportements, motivations et objectifs proches, utilisée en marketing
publicitaire pour créer des profils ) pour leurs recherches, afin de découvrir comment #Amazon collectait et utilisait exactement les données échangées entre les locuteurs d'enceintes vocales et les serveurs #Alexa. Cette étude révèle également que les publicités ciblées

Des documents internes d'#Amazon révèlent ( comme de nbreux acteurs l'avaient déjà identifié ! ) que si les enceintes #audio #Echo pilotées par l'#IA #Alexa sont les plus achetées, leurs usages restent essentiellement cantonnés à 2 ou 3 fonctions :
1-L'#audio (flux/délinéarisé) Image
#music, #radio, #podcasts, #meteo, #InfoTrafic ...
2-La domotique (éclairages, caméras, minuteur, stores, prises...)
3- Alarmes
Ainsi les principales préoccupations des responsables de la division #Alexa (10K personnes !) restent l'engagement et la rétention des auditeurs.
A ce stade le #smartdisplay (enceinte-écran tactile-#Alexa, gamme Echo Show) serait le device le + polyvalent et celui à même de dépasser les points de frictions inhérents à la gamme d'enceintes purement vocales !
En effet l'interaction tactile avec l'écran permet de contourner Image

Amazon #Alexa's engagement has been growing in India, with over thousands of requests received every minute between March to May 2020.

@SrBachchan @amazonIN
The feature will be available only next year, and customers will have to purchase it to use @SrBachchan's voice.

Hmm. I see a bunch of (justifiable) focus on the "Phase 4" trialling of @KheironMedical's 'Mammography Intelligent Assessment' #AI:… but not so much on @Deloitte using AI to automate the triage of GP referrals...
...nor other (earlier Phase) R&D projects like "Natural Language Processing for real-time data capture in electronic health records", which appears to be lagging @amazon Transcribe Medical:… and the dubious 'leg up' @MattHancock gave to #Alexa last year..., though I see exactly what @NHSX is trying to do with its "Phase" framing, the effort is significantly undermined by the Govt's deliberate omission of #algorithms from the #MedicinesAndMedicalDevicesBill that it's currently pushing through Parliament.

Hmm. UK Gov't #digital really is beginning to look like an @AWS carve-up! So much so it's difficult keeping track of the #RevolvingDoors:…

@Azure's still hanging in there, of course & @MattHancock notably blamed @Apple not @Google for his #COVIDapp woes...
...not forgetting the 'leg-up' he gave to #Alexa with his controversial @amazon-drafted NHS deal.

Certainly an appointment worth keeping an eye on, with a process:… and legislation:… that in Constitutional terms has barely bedded in.
Also, as Jerry points out, the salary for #GCDO is not what such roles used to command:

(Maybe @10DowningStreet's looking for rather *less* initiative...)

Over the last few months the DIY #engineer in me has been busy turning the family home to #smarthome via a plethora of #IOT products. In the thread below are few of my observations and a possible glimpse into where I see this space moving. Always happy to receive feedback.
1/n So one of the first steps before going #Smarthome is to identify the ecosystem you wish to plug your home into. Now the two primary options that most users should choose are @Google & @amazon #Alexa. Over an above these you have exotic options which I stayed away from.
2/n I nailed my choice down to @alexa99 for these reasons. 1) A ton of compatible products available on @amazonIN. 2) #Echo input devices available by the dozen fitting all sizes from dot to spot to show etc. 3) Relative ease of setting up once you get a hang of it. 4) #Alexa!

1. Just an interesting detail from the Julian #Assange #extraditionHearing: to join the @MoJGovUK's remote videoconference system, we journos were requested to turn off any vocal assistant, such as #Siri or #Alexa. This confirms the serious privacy concerns about #Siri,#Alexa,etc
2. in UK, court hearings are NOT supposed to be filmed, recorded, etc. Not even taking pictures is allowed. The @MoJGovUK's request to turn off vocal assistant such as #Siri,#Alexa, etc DOES acknowledge the risk that these vocal assistants listen and record conversations
3. last month,a French #whistleblower, #ThomasLeBonniec, did write to the EU authorities: as a former #Apple contractor working on #Siri', he listened to hundreds of PRIVATE conversations. Here is my article on the #Siri threat [English ,ARCHIVE]:…

¿Qué es la tinta electrónica? Existen 2 tecnologías para su fabricación:
✅Gyricon de Xerox:la más antigua ya que sus orígenes se remontan a los años 70.
✅E-Ink:empleada en la mayoría de los libros electrónicos, debido a su mayor resolución.
📌E-ink fue desarrollada en los 90 en el Media Lab, una de las incubadoras de ideas más atípicas del @MIT. De sus laboratorios han salido las pantallas táctiles, el lenguaje de programación para niños #Scratch, el asistente virtual #Alexa o el #GPS. Vía👉
📌Investigadores del Media Lab crean en 1997 la empresa E-Ink para desarrollar y comercializar la tecnología. En 2002 fabrican los primeros prototipos de pantallas con tres capas: una lámina plástica protectora, un polímero líquido y una malla de microtransmisores eléctricos.

Preuve s'il en fallait une que #Alexa c'est vraiment du caca pour faire des classements de popularité : @GameSideStory vient de prendre 7 millions de places sans aucune raison logique et ce, en un seul mois.

On fait en vrai 150 visiteurs de plus par jour comparé à d'habitude. Image
@GameSideStory Notez qu'en termes de trafic, ce classement semble plus plausible que le précédent (en même temps, 7 millions en marge d'erreur...)

Pour informations, GSS faisait en 2019 environ 300/350 visiteurs par jour (<3) et en 2020 depuis la mi-janvier, on fait dans les 450.
#Alexa c'est du caca. Par contre : c'est un des SEULS outils un peu gratuit qui permette de faire des calculs sans aller demander le Google Analytics de tout le monde. Donc ne jetez pas la pierre à ceux qui l'utilisent. Juste, sachez prendre ces infos avec de grosses pincettes !

HILO | Hoy es el #SuperBowl2020 donde muchas marcas pautan a un costo de 10 millones de dólares los 60 segundos. Empiezo exponiendo algunos de esos. Este es de Walmart y su servicio de delivery en la tienda
