A spokesperson admitted that they have not done a good job in informing their users that sometimes they need human intervention when reviewing their content, which may include the private conversations that you’ve had on Cortana or Skype. Of course most people don’t read the fine print anyway, but at least now they can say “Hey, we told you about this and you still agreed so don’t go complaining about privacy and stuff”.
This is bringing up a whole new conversation on how much of our lives do we let all these tech companies have access to all for the sake of using their services for “free”. While AI has probably helped improve our digital lives, it’s still such in an early stage that humans are still needed, raising up all kinds of ethical dilemmas.
