Hour 1 : Tech Roundtable with Cal and Foster

Ooooops! Watch your mouth around Alexa

A Portland family’s private conversations were recorded by their Amazon Echo smart speaker and emailed to a random phone contact of the father in an incident that has given fresh life to concerns that popular smart speakers are recording more than their owners realize.
The Oregon family contacted Amazon to investigate after a private conversation in their home was recorded by their Amazon Echo — the voice-controlled smart speaker — and the recorded audio was sent to the phone of someone in Seattle who was in the father’s contact list, they told a local TV station.
When it’s turned on, Amazon’s voice recognition program is constantly listening for its “wake word,” the word that tells the system to pay attention. Alexa has four — Alexa, Echo. Amazon or Computer, but the default is Alexa unless the user changes it.
After it hears the wake word, it starts sending the conversation to the cloud, where it’s recorded and translated for Alexa to respond to.
