  • Facebook écoutait bien certaines conversations d'usagers

En effet, Facebook a transmis à cette agence un communiqué, qui reconnaît l'usage des enregistrements sonores des conversations. Les sous-traitants avaient pour mission de vérifier si l'intelligence artificielle du réseau interprétait correctement les messages qui avaient été rendus anonymes.

Le réseau social explique que les sous-traitants ne retranscrivaient que des extraits d'audio de conversations d'utilisateurs de Messenger l'ayant accepté (bon courage pour trouver l'option dans le dédale des réglages de Facebook).

Selon Bloomberg, les employés qui sont chargés de la transcription s'inquiètent des implications éthiques de leur travail, n'étant ni informés de l'origine des enregistrements des conversations, ni de l'usage qu'en fait l'entreprise fondée par Mark Zuckerberg.

Pour ce qui est des autres géants, comme Amazon, Google ou Apple, ils ont déjà reconnu avoir eu recours aux écoutes, dans le but d'améliorer les réponses de leurs assistants vocaux respectifs. Apple et Google ont indiqué avoir abandonné la pratique ces dernières semaines.
