During this episode of River to River, host Ben Kieffer talks with Iowa State University Professors Michael Bugeja and Doug Jacobsen about how smart these speakers really are. They discuss how speakers pose a privacy risk after recent incidents where smart speakers started recording conversations and sending them without being told to do so. Jacobsen, who is a professor of engineering, says in an era of big data, privacy is nearly dead.
Bugeja and Jacobsen also talk about new privacy rules being implemented in the European Union.
