My latest: @Google has announced changes to data handling rules for Google Assistant, including an opt-in option, but admits it still records convos on accident & it's bringing back human transcribers. Worrisome, given how close Google & the US gov are. sptnkne.ws/9QJb
@Google To review: @Google joined other social media companies last month in a crackdown on accounts presenting pro-Beijing takes on the #HongKongProtests, following tips/leads by the CIA's @FireEye & @AtlanticCouncil's Digital Forensic Research Lab.
@Google @FireEye @AtlanticCouncil For a more detailed take on how evil Google is, @DrREpstein is the man to follow. He came under fire from Dems last month for his work exposing how Google can direct millions of votes by controlling search results (story is mine) sptnkne.ws/9AJ3
@Google @FireEye @AtlanticCouncil @DrREpstein When I interviewed @DrREpstein in April, he told me how documents leaked from Google showed it lied: its search blacklists are manually pruned by humans, not just by unbiased algorithm. sptnkne.ws/mhsg
@Google @FireEye @AtlanticCouncil @DrREpstein Plus, @TulsiGabbard's campaign sued Google in July for arbitrarily locking their ad account right after the 1st Dem debate, when she was the most-searched candidate, depriving her of enormous fundraising potential & support. sptnkne.ws/89KN
@Google So aside from adding an opt-in to having your audio data stored (which is very good), @Google hasn't really changed much. All they did was put up-front things that had previously been obscure, such as humans listening to your voice searches in some cases. blog.google/products/assis…
@Google They also admit their system doesn't always recognize when it's not recording a search request (i.e. you didn't say "hey @Google
"), but now say that voice data won't be tied to users in any way. However, there's still potential for your convos to be recorded & heard by humans.
