This comes up every once in a while and it crossed my mind after seeing the new Google P and listening to Tim Cook's address to the graduates at Duke. In this day and age privacy as we know it has become a blurred commodity that most knowingly or unknowingly sell or barter for services, be it devices, utilities, shopping, merchandising, job searches, education, etc... Most everything we interact and integrate with uses and / or shares/sells our information. I am an Apple, Google, Windows user. I religiously periodically review my privacy and security settings in all my environments and look how I interact in the big wide world. Yes, having a job background check every two years does help to focus my efforts. No, I am not a Facebook user but do have a twitter account. This all said, we are now migrating into the next area of device interaction: AI. Wow. We all and love/hate Siri. Cortana. Google Assistant. Alexa. Then there was the demonstration at the latest Google I/O developers conference keynote. Add in the Google employee resignations from protesting Project Maven (LINK). The popularity of Alexa. We are well on our way. AI runs off of knowledge. Data. A big portion of that data comes via us. Our private data. So,what is privacy? How does it really affect me? Do I really have control? We have all had the emails, calls, snail mail, that starts after we download an app, apply for a loan, buy a car, sign up for a class, etc... This is irrespective of how careful we are. Privacy is far more than just a company or OS. Anyway, as a serious Google user (yes, I really like their products), I ran across an article (LINK) that did a semi decent job of asking that very question and using Google as the subject. In this evolving world of AI, just what is privacy and how / can we personally effect it? If we say no to AI in our personal world, what are we giving up? Are some of us saying no and the information is gleaned from somewhere else? Push comes to shove, what do we want? A Siri? A Google Assistant? Alexa? Or something else? Anyway, vote and speak your piece. There are no right or wrong answers yet. T quote an item from the article, If someone comes up some alternative meaningful poll choices, I will amend them.
