  • Google在智能音箱的領域上領先了Amazon

    ◎一項新的研究顯示,Google靠著在追踪用戶和構建語音識別工具方面追求卓越的最新舉措,而在智能音箱的領域上領先了Amazon。

    ◎據研究機構Canalys表示,Google首次在生物識別數據的獲得也就是一般所稱的「智能音箱」上領先Amazon。Google對獲取「音位」(又譯音素,是人類語言中能夠區別意義的最小聲音單位)非常感興趣,通過這些「音位」可以識別用戶並通過各種方式追踪它們。「智能音箱」是政府承包商Google長期進行的追踪用戶並構建語音轉成文本及語音識別工具的相關舉措中的最新一步,該計劃最早可以追溯到2007年。

    ◎所以你現在知道語音轉成文本及語音識別工具的消費者是哪些人,以及像是Google和Amazon這樣的政府承包商是很可能會把你的生物識別數據賣掉的。生物識別技術收集工具允許Big Tech將你的聲紋和可能的指紋連接到他們已經透過其他方式收集到的你的所有其他數據。當然,當你添加面部識別或虹膜識別時,它就已經得出結論了;當你啟用指紋、虹膜或面部識別身份驗證或與Alexa及Google Home Mini交談時,請考慮這一點。

    Fresh research has revealed that Google has pulled ahead of Amazon in the smart speaker department, the latest move by the tech giant in its quest to be the best in the biz at tracking users and building speech recognition tools.

    According to the Canalys research outfit, Google has taken the lead over Amazon for the first time in the acquisition of biometric identifying data–aka "smart speakers". It should come as no surprise that Google is vastly more interested in acquiring "phonemes" by which to identify users and track them through a variety of means.

    The "smart speaker" is the latest step in government contractor Google's long running campaign to track users and build speech-to-text and speech recognition tools. The program goes back to at least 2007 when Marissa Meyer said of "GOOG-411":

    The speech recognition experts that we have say: If you want us to build a really robust speech model, we need a lot of phonemes, which is a syllable as spoken by a particular voice with a particular intonation. So we need a lot of people talking, saying things so that we can ultimately train off of that.

    So who do you think the customers are for speech-to-text and speech recognition tools to whom government contractors like Google and Amazon might be selling your biometric data? The biometrics harvesting tools allows Big Tech to connect your voice print and maybe your fingerprints to all the other data that they have already harvested about you from other means. And of course when you add in facial recognition or iris recognition it's game, set and match.

    Think about that when you enable your fingerprint, iris or facial recognition authentication or talk to Alexa or your Google Home Mini. Or you could just ask the Shoe Gazer at the Internet Association.
