Facebook is framed as the social network par excellence. Mark Zuckerberg's company many years ago that stopped being used for a single reason to end up becoming a authentic conglomerate of which other apps are part such as WhatsApp and Instagram. However, no matter how much progress at the business level, Facebook always remains involved with a problem that has not just been resolved: lack of privacy
The integration with Instagram and WhatsApp, the change of design, the news with the notifications Many are the updates that Facebook has carried out over the years, but from the company of Zuckerberg they always sin in the same: privacy. There are already many occasions in which Facebook has been involved in a host of scandals related to the security of the users that make up the great social network. Well, it seems that it will not be the last time this happens. Now everything seems to indicate that the The app itself has listened to and transcribed the audios that its users have sent.
Facebook again threatens the privacy of its users
The large social network returns to interfere in another case related to the lack of security and privacy. On this occasion we do not talk about any type of failure, but about an act premeditated by the company itself. From Facebook they have been listening and transcribing the voice notes sent by their users to test their new Artificial Intelligence system. At least that is what they have confirmed from the company itself, labeling this system as a truly innovative mechanism.
Facebook has wanted to check how far its new Artificial Intelligence system can reach and has not come up with a better point to prove it than with the audios of its users. If you have sent a voice memo via Facebook Messenger, the application has listened to your audio and transcribed it instantly. At least they were doing it until recently more than a week in order to check if this new system worked correctly.
From the company they assure that this procedure is not based on the collection of data to improve the publicity of the users, but in a simple system of improvement of their Artificial Intelligence. In addition, the Zuckerberg company ensures that these actions are only carried out when the profiles themselves give their consent for the app access the mobile microphone. An excuse of the most absurd, since without this access we could not send any type of voice memo. The attack on user privacy has reached levels that are already Artificial Intelligence itself that selects the best ads to integrate into your timeline.
