Siri, Alexa and Google: "You are our consumer, our unpaid worker, our resource and our product!"

I need to name this longest episode ever a tragicomedy. (Actually, it’s not that long, it will take you only about 8 minutes =)

Why?

Siri, Alexa and Google first entertain us with some figures on how important we humans are and how much we like our assistants, before they go on and call us “products”. We are: consumers, unpaid workers, resources and products of AI!

I mean … ?

Here are this weeks headlines:

  • New Smart Speaker Survey from Adobe
  • Highlights from the Apple Event
  • HomePod’s new features
  • “Anatomy of an AI” and why YOU are A.I.’s product
  • Google’s reCaptcha trick as example for unpaid crowdsourcing
  • Bezos becomes a 1% philantropist on Day One 

For more details on the headlines, let’s dive into the news sources …
